Set on c. 1.16 acres (c. 0.47 hectares), the residence here comprises an extended refurbished and modernised cottage that provides for comfortable country living. The residence accommodates three generous sized bedrooms (master ensuite) as well as two reception rooms together with the usual ancillary accommodation. Outside, the elevated site is surrounded by the beautiful rolling lush landscapes of the Boyne Valley. Given the large site area, some c. 1.16 acres (c. 0.47 hectares), there’s space for a pony, poultry, pigs or a ploughed patch and maybe even a polytunnel too. Those in search of the good life and those with green finger aspirations will have a field-day, pardon the pun. One could give the idea of establishing a small organic hobby farm here consideration and so too, it is ideal for those in search of the good life and who wish to become self-sufficient.
