For €13,5 Million You Can Be The King Of The Castle

Knockdrin Castle

Have you ever dreamed to own your fortress and to live happily ever after? Now you can, just in case you have €13,5 million ($15,680). Knockdrin Castle, in Co Westmeath, Ireland is being offered for sale for only the fourth time in its 150-year-plus history. Knockdrin Castle is one of the finest picturesque castellated country houses built in Ireland during the first half of the nineteenth century. The 19,375 square foot castle, which is technically a Georgian country house, was commissioned in the early 1800s by Sir Richard Levinge and stayed in his family for more than 100 years.

The accommodation within the castle provides 7 bedrooms, including the Crown Bedroom where British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill stayed during the War of Independence. His mother, Lady Churchill, who regularly hunted on the estates, said “the foxes are as wild as the locals”.
Along with the main house, the property includes multiple other structures such as the “yard cottage” (two bedrooms) “gate house” (three bedrooms), and “gate lodge” (one bedroom), along with another two bungalows with three bedrooms each.
The core estate demesne extending to over 1,000 acres is intact, relatively unique in an Irish context, with the castle privately and centrally positioned within the lands and enjoying uninterrupted views over estate lands to the distant hills beyond.
