Heathfield Castle

A wonderful 18th century castle in Co Limerick is on the market and it is equally stunning on the inside as it is from the outside.

Heathfield Castle in Ballinrune, Kilmeedy has a special feature that makes it a unique home, even for a castle – an 18th century limekiln that has been incorporated into the design of the home.

The limekiln reception room has travertine chisel effect marble floor and oak beams on the ceiling as well as the original sandstone surround limekiln fireplace with a solid fuel stove.

The castle is being sold by daft.ie with an asking price of €2m.

The central room in the property is built around the limekiln and it has five bedrooms and two bathrooms, reception room, living/dining room, spiral staircase, and study.

The listing said: “Heathfield Castle is a very imposing and exceptionally attractive detached residence.

“The property is situated in the heart of Ballinruane Wood approached by a tree lined avenue off the West Limerick scenic drive, a short distance from Adare and Limerick City.

“Internally the property is presented with great flair and impeccable taste creating a luxurious yet remarkably comfortable and manageable home providing wonderfully elegant light filled accommodation.”
