Wilton House, Wilton Hill, Rathkeale, Co. Limerick
Totally refurbished two storey over garden level detached period residence built c. 1820

Wilton House is a two storey over garden level detached period residence built c. 1820. It was totally refurbished in 2007 and is in superb decorative order. The total floor area is approximately 4200 sqft and the house is on a beautiful site of 1.4 acres with several mature trees and magnificent views of green fields in every direction.

The walls to the roadside are an impressive 7 feet high and electric gates lead you down a sweeping driveway to the front of the house. The site has many superb beech and lime trees and the setting is very peaceful. To the back of the house the walled in orchard has six apple trees and a garden shed.

This is a listed building which contains many period features that you would associate with a house of this age. The sash windows are made from Red Deel and are complete with sash cords and weights. The house has its own well but this is not currently in use and instead the water is from the mains. There is a bio-cycle treatment system. A gas fired heating (LPG) system heats the house and there is underfloor heating in the basement (zoned heating). Sheeps wool has been used for insulation.

There is a great feeling of space at Wilton House, both inside and out. Inside, the rooms have high ceilings and there are several large reception rooms. The accommodation is spread over three floors, with many of the rooms having feature fireplaces and wooden floors. Outside, the house is very nicely positioned in the middle of the site giving good space all around.

The ground floor includes a spacious entrance hall, large TV room, dining room, downstairs toilet and a cream fitted kitchen with granite worktops and Aga cooker. On the first floor there is a spacious landing, master suite (including a bedroom, living room, bathroom, toilet and walk-in wardrobe), a living room, four further bedrooms and a bathroom. The basement has a games room, lobby, electrics room, utility, two bedrooms, bathroom and toilet.
