This house and its woodland are not overlooked, is ideal for a family or anyone with a love of gardening, wildlife, or the outdoors, and is ready for immediate occupation. Schools are close by in Kilbride (primary) and Trim (primary & secondary). The Heritage Town of Trim with its fine Norman castle – location for the film “Brave Heart” – on the banks of the River Boyne, has all necessary services, including shops, restaurants, as well as a fitness centre and swimming pool. The UNESCO World heritage sites of Newgrange, Knowth, and Dowth, as well as the Hill of Tara, are all within twenty minutes.
The property is also within 10 minutes of the Boyne and Trimblestown Rivers, both internationally renowned for their salmon, trout, and coarse fishing. Horse riding is catered for by a number of local riding clubs as well as the Meath Foxhounds, the Ballymacad Foxhounds, the Tara Harriers, and the Ward Union Stag Hunt.
Attractive properties such as this don’t often come to the market. It has not changed ownership in the last 45 years, and thus represents a rare and exceptional opportunity for quiet and private country living, while at the same time being close to all amenities and well within daily commuting distance from Dublin.
The reason for selling is that our mother passed away in 2011, and we need to divide the property between my sister and I.
