POWERSCOURT HOUSE – From the Gardens – 2000

scan0074cIn County Wicklow, Ireland, the house and gardens at Powerscourt are quite impressive.  This is the back of the house as you now access it, looking up from the gardens, but I suppose it was originally the front of the house.

  1. sorry martha, that is actually the front of the house. when you entered the house, you actually entered through the “back door”. after the house was donated to the state, rebuilt and transformed into a museum, the only way to manage the visitors was to let them in through the back.

    lovely colours in your shot!

    • Of course, the drive would have curved around the front.
