The market for small country estates may not be as buoyant as it once was but there should still be plenty of interest in Streamstown House.
A 19th century parochial house at Rathmolyon, Co Meath, Streamstown was acquired some years ago by the present owners and, under the close supervision of a leading firm of architects, it was completely and sensitively restored.
All of the original features were carefully retained, leaving a property with history and heritage which has been finished to a very high specification.
The property comes with 12ac of paddocks, which are post- and rail-fenced and are nicely sheltered by mature hedges and trees.
The main house includes a reception hall, dining room with original marble fireplaces, kitchen and recreation room. Also on the ground floor there is a utility room, study and laundry. The first floor has four bedrooms, one with an ensuite, and the family bathroom.
A former two-storey coach house has been converted to a residence that includes two bedrooms, a sitting room and kitchen.
This residence is included in an enclosed stone built courtyard and has seven large stables, a tack room and workshop. To the rear of the stables there is an enclosed barn (60ft x 30ft) for hay, feed and machinery. The yard also has a Monarch seven-stall horse walker, as well as an all-weather training arena.
A guide price of €1.2m is being quoted by Navan auctioneer Raymond Potterton for Streamstown House.
