A period estate on 260 acres with three houses

BELIEVED to have been the former dower house on the family estate of the Duke of Wellington, the main house at Ginnet's Park in Co Meath is now a five-bedroom period home with three en suite bedrooms.

At ground level there are four reception rooms, one of which is the west-facing library with its fitted bookcases and carved marble mantelpiece. From this, double doors open to the south-west-facing drawingroom with a hardwood floor and marble mantelpiece.

The diningroom, like the library, has parquet flooring and a marble mantelpiece, while the breakfastroom has fitted cupboards and leads to the attractive vaulted ceiling kitchen with a range of oak-fitted units, double oven and hob, dishwasher, and ceramic-tiled floor.

Outside, there is a steward's three-bedroom house connected to the main house. The gate lodge is in need of repair but could provide two good bedrooms, a reception room, bathroom and garage.

The stable yard contains a selection of 14 loose boxes, an office, as well as two garages, stabling for more horses and grain stores.

There is also a groom's apartment and extensive cattle yard with haybarns, machinery sheds and silage facilities. Large double garages with access from the house completes the accommodation. The grounds surrounding the home are laid out in lawns, including a grass tennis court, rose and flower beds as well as a large amount of mature trees providing shelter. There is also a small vegetable and flower garden with a south-facing greenhouse.

Some 110 acres are laid out in fields and 150 acres are mature woods suitable for pheasant shooting in this Royal County haven.
