The house is set on 85ac and comes with a cottage in need of refurbishment, a yard with four loose boxes and a large garage. The property will be sold in lots at auction with a guide price of €1.5million for the entire.
The property is located 1.5 miles from the Meath village of Summerhill, 22 miles from Dublin and access to the M4 motorway is an eight minute drive away.
Aidan Heffernan of Sherry Fitzgerald Royal describes the two-storey, stone-clad house as a unique property built with modern material to a traditional design. The property was developed 20 years ago by a local dairy farmer and his solicitor wife, whose family is now reared and moved out.
Accessed by a limestone entrance and reached by a tarmacadam drive, the property is fronted by a single-storey balustraded bow with Ionic columns and flanked by Wyatt windows. The south-facing residence enjoys fine views over the surrounding farm land.
The floor area extends to 4,630sq ft and comprises a reception hall, drawing room, dining room, living room, study, kitchen with Aga, utility and guest toilet. The house has its own wine cellar complete with fitted shelving. The reception rooms contain many features, including an elegant oaken stairway, marble fireplaces, ornate plasterwork and parquet flooring throughout.
Upstairs the spacious landing leads to five large bedrooms with the master en suite and a family main bathroom.
A separate guest apartment, comprising a living room/kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom, adjoins the house.
