Restoration enthusiasts on the lookout for a project will be charmed by this secluded two-storey farmhouse at Kilmainhamwood in Kells, Co Meath.
In need of total restoration, the property manages to retain a sense of its original style and elegance.
Victorian in style, the house has the remnants of some original features such as old-style windows under the eaves, and quaint panels of glass over the front door.
Set on an elevated six-acre site, Ervey has the potential to be restored into a beautiful, secluded residence.
Ideal for someone who works from home, the property includes several stone outbuildings that could be converted into a workshop or home office. The vendor has architectural plans completed for the renovation of the existing house and an extension, which may be useful for new owners.
Entrance to the property is via a tree-lined avenue with a ring fort on one side and a wooded area and orchard on the other.
The land fronts two roads, the Ervey Road and the R164, the Kingscourt to Kells road.
A stream running by the bottom of the land adds to the property's aura of peace.
While in a very rural setting, Ervey is just 4km from the busy market town of Kingscourt, while Kells is 20km away.
