RE/MAX Professional Partners Limerick are pleased to introduce Heathfield Castle, Ballinruane, Kilmeedy, Co. Limerick to market.

Heathfield house is a detached family home nestled in a 1.5 acre site and backs onto Ballinruane Woods.

Approached through private electric gates and along a sweeping tree lined driveway, Heathfield House makes an immediate impression.

Built by the current owners this home\’s design has been inspired by the old lime kiln, built into the slope of a mountain in 1824 and used as an inspiration for the main house which is in excellent condition throughout.

Heathfield contains a host of surprises that will delight any discerning family including a very cleverly designed golf driving range located on the pathway to the woods as well as a waterfall, a stream, billiard room, barbeque area, cellar and rooftop terrace. It also has an intercom system, sound system and recessed lighting.

Located just outside the village of Kilmeedy in West Co Limerick (with Adare and Newcastle West, both roughly 15km away), this home is the perfect hideaway and in today\’s market, a property that has been designed and planned with a very forward thinking mind-set by the owners.

This luxurious high-end residential home has highly energy efficient charcoal underfloor heating and comprises five spacious bedrooms, one with Jacuzzi bath while the remaining bedrooms are fitted out with ensuite/wet room showers and false wall walk in wardrobes.

The old lime kiln with original 2ft thick stone walls has recently been pumped with Kingspan aeroboard. The kiln now houses a professional sized snooker table with a solid fuel stove keeping the space snug and warm. With air conditioning and piped music, this room can be reconverted back to its original purpose as a reception/sitting room if necessary.

As you enter the property, you are greeted by an showstopping circular reception hall which leads to all main reception rooms. The stainless steel spiral staircase and hall is lit with a stunning feature crystal chandelier.

The main kitchen/dining/living area houses a granite topped breakfast bar and island counter. This is the perfect space for entertaining family and friends and is a beautifully warm and light filled room with fully integrated appliances and an open feature fireplace, making this very much the warm heart of this high end home. It offers an ideal space to relax with French style double doors. leading out to the wooden stepped and beautifully landscaped garden.

The ground floor of Heathfield also contains the billiard room and one of the five ensuite bedrooms with jacuzzi bath, as well as a storage room and toilet. There is also a further wardrobe on the ground floor of the home, making the ideal boot/jacket space.

As you make your way upstairs and away from the main hub of the house you will find a utility/laundry room, as well as the four main ensuite bedrooms with solid wood floors and access to one of the most delightful features of the house – the roof terrace with its own putting green.

On the top floor of the property, the open plan space is used as an office/study area and could also feature as a play area. This area also has access to the roof terrace which has outstanding views of the surrounding countryside.

Externally this home keeps up the impressive standards with magically manicured and landscaped gardens, charmingly nestled at the edge of woodlands. The gardens have been thoughtfully planted with a waterfall feature and a small driving range for the keen golf enthusiast. There is also driveway parking for multiple vehicles.

This house makes the most of its setting in a beautiful rural location but with 20km from picturesque villages and shopping areas as well as a 40km from Limerick city.

Outdoor lovers will enjoy owning a home which backs on to Ballinruane Woods with two trail walks (2.5km and 5Km in length) given stunning views over Ballyhoura, the Golden Vale and the Galtee Mountains.
