“Winterwood lets you become part of an exclusive community offering a lifestyle of casual elegance, simple pleasures and world class amenities.

“Your homes landscaped gardens will blend with the estates 840 acres of stunning parkland and woodland, giving you a real sense of belonging to something peaceful and unique,” reads the promotional material.

Several lavish properties in the picturesque village of Adare are now for sale with seven-figure price-tags, which have been greatly reduced from the boom years.
