You could be king of this Carlow castle for €455,000

We all love the idea of living in a grand old building, but few options will prove as practical as this gorgeous property.

As the name suggests, this wonderfully restored and extended home is dominated by a unique tower, dating back to the 1800s, providing an aspect that few homes could match.

Located between Fenagh and Borris, the property is available on a variable site area as the owners own adjoining land up to 1 acre.

Originally built as a Royal Irish Constabulary police station circa 1839, this tower house was capable of sending and receiving flag signals to other towers, which were strategically placed across county Carlow.


The granite stairs are a fine piece of architectural detailing with wedge-shaped cut granite threads built into the wall at the inner circumference of the tower with the thinnest part of the wedge carved into the cylindrical shape as they are laid one on top of the other to form the spindle of the stair.

Across the rest of the home, there are many beautiful bespoke features incorporating wood and stone.

Accommodation comprises of a hall, sitting room, living room, large kitchen and dining area, family room, three en-suite bedrooms, a bathroom, and a loft.

For those who fancy working from home in a high tower, fibre optic broadband is due to be available at the property next month.


There is also a mobile home located to the rear of the property which may be purchased at an additional cost of €15,000.
