Additional Information

Glebe House is a charming period home on 24 acres that enjoys the perfect balance between country and town.

The location is excellent: the property is c 15 minutes` drive to Dundalk, Drogheda and Ardee, and is only 5 minutes` drive from junction 15 of the M1 motorway. That puts it to within 35-40 minutes of Dublin Airport and less than an hour into Dublin city. The house is also situated just across the road from the well known Darver Castle - a very popular wedding and events venue, and the little village of Darver, with GAA club and national school, is a short walk away.

Architecturally, Glebe House has excellent breeding! It was built in c 1800 in the Georgian style by the famous architect Frances Johnston, who was also responsible for the General Post Office at O`Connell Street in Dublin and Farnham Estate in Cavan. Originally built as a Rectory, it is an elegant two storey over basement residence on its own lands, with many fine features.

The property is approached passing a little lodge house, along a 560 metre predominantly tree-lined avenue. The lands are nicely assembled around the home and yard, and are fully self-contained. The house commands an elevated position and is entire private.
Enter via the feature cut stone granite steps. Two well-proportioned reception rooms flank the hallway – both are well appointed, with fire places and both have dual aspect.

To rear, the main bathroom occupies a return. It is nicely finished with wood panelling and Georgina-style sanitary ware, including a free standing roll top bath.

Upstairs are four bedrooms: three are double rooms with original wide plank wooden floor, and the largest is ensuite – again panelled with Georgian style sanitary ware and free standing bath – a luxurious touch in an ensuite. To the front is a fourth bedroom which might also make a good child`s bedroom.
At lower ground floor level, further accommodation. The kitchen with original quarry tiled floor has a range cooker and ample storage and work surface area. Adjacent is a cosy snug which is walled in stone and red block – it would make a gorgeous dining room. Utility is also adjacent to the kitchen.
Across the hall, the family room – lovely big fires make this the heart of the house, and adjacent to this is a fifth bedroom, or maybe the coziest office imaginable!

To the southern aspect of the house is a lovely vantage point for outdoor dining and enjoying the rolling countryside, with views across to Collon.
To the rear of the property is an array of yard buildings, including an original cobble lock paddock with cut stone outhouses. Beyond that, a 3 bay haybarn with lean to and 4 stables and tack area within, plus a separate detached row of 7 stables behind. Another important feature is a well draining equestrian show jumping arena. Additionally, there are several well placed access points from the yard onto the lands.

Joanne commented: "This is a fine country holding that offers much in the way of potential, inside and out. The property will have strong appeal for buyers with personal or indeed professional equestrian or country sports interests, but equally for those simply seeking a beautiful and private country residence."

The property is a listed structure so is BER exempt. It has oil fired heating.
