The house was to be unique, and suitable for entertaining guests.The site lent itself to a type of early “Prairie Style” of the famous American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, and which had Victorian elements and details.It was quite common for Major Eighteenth Century Estate Houses to later build additional houses as required by the main house, these were in the Victorian style, being built in the late 18th and 19th centuries.Notable details of this Mount Juliet house are the prominent pitched roofs and overhanging eaves, large high windows and a simple layout for the floor plans. The interiors are primarily finished in oak for the floors, doors, and panelling, etc.It remains one of my favourite houses that I have designed, is timeless, will age well and grow old gracefully.”Mount Juliet Estate This property is situated in a very good position directly beside the 5th fairway on the Mount Juliet Estate, Ireland’s leading country estate, which is home to the Irish Open Golf Tournament.

Characterised by horizontal lines and masses, the Prairie buildings that emerged in the first decade of the twentieth century evoke the expansive Midwestern landscape.The buildings reflect an all-encompassing philosophy that Wright termed “Organic Architecture”, suited to its environment and a product of its place purpose and time. First developed in 1894, when Wright was establishing his practice in Chicago, this philosophy of design informed his entire .No.11 Foxes Covert, designed by award-winning Irish architects de Blacam & Meagher, epitomises the spirit and ethos of the Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie style.
