Vesington Wood, Dunboyne €750k
Sherry FitzGerald Sherry (01) 825 9452
This detached dormer on 1.5 acres outside Dunboyne was built in 2009 in homage to Victorian architecture. It's 3,606 sq ft in size, with five bedrooms and two reception rooms. One is a huge, open-plan kitchen, living and dining room occupying about half of the ground floor. It's triple-aspect, with a vaulted ceiling open to the gallery landing, and has an antique fireplace. Also on the ground floor there's a separate family room and one bedroom (or study). The other four are upstairs - two en-suite and one with a balcony.
Newhaggard, Trim, €700k
Sherry FitzGerald Royal (046) 943 1525
If you're looking for more space then what about a 4,155 sq ft architect-designed property on 14 acres outside Trim? It's in the townland of Newhaggard, about three kilometres from Trim, where you'll find a 0.4km avenue leading up to it. It has five bedrooms, one on the ground floor with en-suite and walk-in wardrobe, and four upstairs (one en-suite). Downstairs there's an open-plan kitchen and breakfast room, a sitting room with a curved wall, a living room, office and games room. The land is in broad fields.
€750k REA Coonan (01) 628 8400
Horsey types have not much hope of keeping up with the Joneses on this detached five-bedroom property six kilometres from Dunboyne. Yes it's on 15 acres, but it's a close neighbour of Ballymacoll Stud, which has been in business for over 50 years and has 300 acres. The house has a sitting room and dining room, a study and a kitchen with separate utility room. The five bedrooms (one en-suite) are upstairs. Outside there's a yard with three stables, a garage and carport, and the gardens include lawns and an orchard.
€700k REA Grimes (01) 835 0392
There's a commercial enterprise attached to this detached house about three kilometres from the N2 north of Ashbourne. It's not for the faint of heart though - it's a licensed abattoir. Vegetarians may want to think about applying for a change of use. It is on 5.48 acres, and the house is 3,067 sq ft with six bedrooms, two downstairs and four upstairs. There's also a large landing upstairs used as a games room. The ground floor has a kitchen and dining room, utility room, and a living room, and it needs updating.
