He turned to Rob Jacob of JLS Design in Kinsale. Rob’s background is in design of super yachts, originally alongside Ron Holland and now with the JLS team. Rob designed the double height room to the front in an unusual vaulted shape which brings out the three dimensional thinking of a boat designer.

The accommodation briefly comprises of entrance hall, large double height entertainment room, interconnecting dining, drawing and library, super Pogenpohl kitchen, utility and guest w.c. at hall level. Upstairs there are four very large double bedrooms, three of which are en-suite, and a family bathroom.

Major O’Sullivan’s daughter Maureen O’Sullivan left Saintbury for the USA at the age of 18 to start her career in film and went on to play “Jane” in the original Tarzan series with the Olympic medal winner Johnny Weissmuller.
