Money can't buy happiness, but in Ireland a hefty $11 million will buy you a fairytale-style Gothic Revival mansion that comes with its own chapel.

St. George's was built in the late 1870s by its architect/owner George Coppinger Ashlin – the home was a wedding gift for his new bride, Mary.

The impressive red-brick Victorian home, located on George's Avenue off Dublin's Killiney Hill Road, is now on the market for €9.25 million ($11.1 million). 

The towered and gabled mansion sits on one acre of terraced gardens, and comes with its own tiny chapel complete with detailed stain glass windows.

Pugin's influence

The home was also inspired by Mary's late father, the influential architect Augustus Pugin who designed the British Houses of Parliament and many significant Irish churches and Cathedrals.

It is believed that it took several years for the home to come to fruition, and that Ashlin modeled it on his bride's childhood home.

Ashlin himself designed many notable Irish properties such as St. Patrick's College Maynooth, Blackrock College, Clongowes Wood College, and Mount Anville.
