Castle on the Market: Humewood Castle- Ireland

KILTEGAN, IRELAND

15 bedrooms

18 bathrooms

46,200 SQ. FT.

$10.1 MILLION

In 1867 a wealthy Irish landowner enlisted English ecclesiastical architect William White to construct on his family real estate. The outcome was an enormous castellated mansion—constructed in the Victorian type out of granite—with towers, gables, and spires begging for a cameo in a period drama.


Property Values: Distributed across the around 427-acre estate are vast forests, two ponds, and formal landscapes, not to mention lodges, cottages, and stables.

Conversing Point: After the project went far over budget and a court action was filed against White, he never ever got another major commission.
