Riverwood House, Trim, Co Meath
Five-bedroom home on 2.5 acres
BUILT in the 1950s, Riverwood House on the outskirts of Trim, Co Meath, was restored and redesigned in 2000 by its current owners.
The 255sqm (2,750sq ft) two-storey home is set on 2.5 acres of land overlooking the heritage town of Trim and adjoining the River Boyne.
Surrounded by split-level gardens and a paddock, Riverwood House has views over the Yellow Steeple, the ruined tower of St Mary's Augustinian Abbey.
Inside, the property gives the impression of a period property, with a sitting room, dining room, study, living room and open-plan kitchen on the ground floor. Upstairs there are five bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The accommodation opens with a large entrance hall with a central staircase leading to the first floor. Off the hallway, the sitting room features a marble fireplace with gas fire and two large bay windows.
Double doors lead from the sitting room through to the living room, which in turn has French doors leading to the garden. To the right of the hallway the large study features a cast-iron fireplace with gas fire and recessed lighting.
To the rear of the property, the modern kitchen has a solid maple fitted kitchen with black granite worktop, Amana American fridge freezer, integrated Zanussi dishwasher, De Dietrich PyroClean oven and an island unit with a granite worktop and breakfast bar.
Doors from the kitchen lead to a utility room and the dining room, which also has French doors to the garden.
Moving upstairs, two of the five bedrooms are en suite and have their own private dressing rooms with fitted wardrobes.
The master bedroom en suite features a cast-iron roll-top bath with claw feet and brass taps.
The expansive first floor landing has a bay French door that leads out to a balcony overlooking the terrace and split-level garden.
Riverwood House is only a few minutes' walk from Trim, which has a frequent bus service to Dublin, and is a short drive from the M1, M2, M3 and M4 motorways.
