Castle House is a wonderful example of just what can be achieved in transforming a rare piece of Historical Architecture into a comfortable Irish Homestead, retaining all the traditional features while enjoying the comforts of modern living. One can immediately appreciate the owner's 30 year devotion to this restoration project and the overall result is breathtaking in its simplicity and uniqueness.
A sixteenth century Tower House is the centerpiece of this property, with old and new additions now fused into a fascinating and enchanting mix. There are many unique features including the limestone spiral staircase, the split-level Main Reception, the mezzanine Library and the traditional Kitchen.
The overall effect is a charming combination of the quaint and traditional, all set in beautiful mid Tipperary rolling countryside, in the Village of Killea and overlooked by the Devil's Bit Mountain. Previously operated as a small Guesthouse, Castle House has all the hallmarks of what is good and original about Irish Country Living.
Castle House comprises a 16th Century Tower House flanked by an older traditional wing containing a Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom and Utility on the Ground Floor, with a Galleried landing and large Ensuite Bedroom overhead. To the other side lies a Diningroom, Sittingroom with Mezzanine Library on the Ground Floor and a bedroom overhead. A newer wing now contains separate Entrance Hall, Lounge, large Kitchen/Livingroom with step-down Reception area and stone Fireplace with vaulted ceiling on the Ground Floor. Upstairs contains a unique Master Bedroom accessed by a Steel Spiral staircase, luxuriously tiled Bathroom and Readingroom.
A curving Driveway approaches the House from the South and holds many delightful garden features. Equally there is an interesting stone and graveled courtyard to the rear overlooking rolling Tipperary countryside. The Tower House contains a store on the ground floor and a wooden staircase to the parapets. There is a detached Garage.
The lands contain 2.94 Hectares (7.27 Acres) and mostly comprise the immediate gardens, driveway and the large field to the East of the dwelling. A quiet country road fronts the Northern boundary and is flanked by small coniferous trees and lovely stonewalls with Gated Entrance.
