Own your own tower: Renovated 16th century home on sale in Ireland for cut-price deal

THIS unusual three bedroom home set in rolling Irish countryside has gone on the market.

Castle House in Killea, Co. Tipperary, features a unique 16th century tower incorporated into the fabric of a modern home.

The property is relatively secluded but is located within walking distance of the picturesque town of Templemore.

It has been a 30-year restoration project for its current owners and is available for a cut-price valuation of just €350,000 (£305,000).

The property features 7.27 acres of land. Picture: Daft.ie

Castle House, overlooked by the Devil’s Bit Mountain, was once operated as a small guest house for travellers along the road.

A curving driveway approaches the house from the south through beautiful garden features.

Off from the driveway is a stone and gravel courtyard leading to a detached garage.

The three bedroom home has been completely renovated. Picture: Daft.ie

The original 16th century tower house contains a store room on the ground floor and a wooden staircase leading up to the parapets.

The tower is flanked on one side by an older, more traditional wing containing a kitchen, utility room, bedroom and bathroom at ground floor level.

Upstairs is a galleried landing and large bedroom with its own en suite bathroom.

Old and new elements fuse into one unique property. Picture: Daft.ie

To the other side of the tower lies the more modern wing of the home, which features a dining room and sitting room with mezzanine library on the ground floor and a bedroom above.

It also contains the property’s reception area, a separate entrance hall, sitting room and a large kitchen/living room.

A steel spiral staircase leads to the master bedroom, a luxuriously tiled bathroom and separate reading room.

Castle House is available for €350,000. Picture: Daft.ie

The overall effect is a charming combination of the traditional and the cutting edge in a beautiful, quaint setting.

The land contains 7.27 acres (3 hectares) and makes up the immediate gardens, driveway and a large field to the east.

A large gated entrance fronts the home and leads out onto a quiet country road.
