Geashill castle

The castle is on sale as a family home

A unique property with over 1.8 hectares of magnificent gardens has gone on the market for a cool €625,000. The price is substantial, but the buyer will always be known as the owner of a castle. The breathtaking Geashill Castle dates back to the 1860s, and is the former home of the 11th Earl of Kildare, and later Baron and Baroness Digby.

The property is extremely private and features a walled garden, a cellar, a three span shed, and a carport complete with mechanic's pit. The house has been carefully restored and has a log-burning stove with a back boiler, as well as oil fired central heating.

Despite being a castle, Geashill is a fully functioning family home, newly insulated in 1995. There are three large bedrooms, two shower rooms and a family bathroom. The property has two large reception rooms and a spacious kitchen/dining room with a log burning stove. There is also a large utility room. The property oozes old-world character and is set in idyllic walled gardens within easy walking distance of all local amenities.
