Four on the market in Meath
Four impressive properties which are currently on the market in the Royal County.
Headfort Road, Kells
€450k REA T&J Gavigan (046) 924 0045
In July 2011, Google Street View captured a woman diligently gardening outside a detached four-bedroom house at Headfort Road in Kells. While her own privacy might have been compromised, her efforts did at least help preserve the privacy of the house. It's screened from the road by hedging and mature trees, and behind that is just over half an acre of lush and leafy grounds. The house is 2,000 sq ft and could do with some upgrading. It has a living room and sitting room, a kitchen with separate breakfast room, and a garage.
Hermitage House, Slane
€500k Sherry FitzGerald Reilly (046) 906 0450
Hermitage House is in a tiny gated community in Slane, being one of three detached houses built in the 1990s at Chapel Street, across the road from St Patrick's Church. It's a roomy 2,799 sq ft but should that not prove enough, it's on a 0.65-acre site. The first floor has four bedrooms (one en-suite) and a bathroom. Downstairs are four living rooms - sitting room, study, sunroom and dining room, as well as a kitchen big enough for informal meals. Also on the ground floor is a utility room and guest toilet and a 460 sq ft garage.
Four Winds, Drumlargan
€485k Property Partners Brady (01) 651 0000
Four Winds is one of those properties that's likely to throw its owners' sporting loyalties into disarray. Its address is Kilcock (Co Kildare, obviously), but it's well inside the border of Co Meath, about five kilometres from the heritage village of Summerhill. The property is on 3.1 acres of land. The house is 1,660 sq ft with four bedrooms (one en-suite), sitting room, kitchen/dining room and a sunroom. There's a deck and patio in the garden, a detached garage, and equestrian buildings too, for horsey types.
3 Cairn Manor, Ratoath
€495k John Fitzgerald (01) 802 7000
There are five bedrooms in 3 Cairn Manor, but you might call it five-and-a-half, as one is a master bedroom that measures 390 sq ft, with an en-suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. By way of living rooms, there's a sitting room with a sandstone fireplace and a second reception room with a cast-iron fireplace, as well as a skylit study off the master bedroom. The recently fitted kitchen has high-gloss cabinets and a breakfast bar. Total floor area is 2,500 sq ft. Out the back is a patio and a sheltered lawned garden.
