Millbourne boasts an attic conversion option
Millbourne, Ashbourne, Co Meath

Commuting from Ashbourne to Dublin has been a trend since Frederick Bourne, a wealthy local landlord and entrepreneur, financed a large stretch of road to the capital in 1820, set up a toll booth for coaches and built a small village he named after himself and the ash, his favourite tree.
These days, Ashbourne is, on average, a 35 minute trip to Dublin along the N2 and M50. It is in the village that developer Merville Homes is building 10 properties at Millbourne, three of which are still available.
The scheme has been developed near the GAA grounds since 2006 and a further release is expected to come on stream in September.
For now, the three properties for sale are from the Q house type. All are semi-detached homes that can be sold either as a 1,150 sq ft three-bed priced from €275,000 or as a 1,450 sq ft dwelling that costs €291,000: the attic can be built into a second floor to accommodate a fourth bedroom complete with a walk-in wardrobe and dressing room, boosting the size of the overall living space.
The ground floor will house a kitchen/dining room with double doors leading to the back garden. Included as standard in the price are a choice of fitted kitchens with integrated appliances, feature coving, a gas fire and fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms.
The A3 rated properties have been fitted with solar panels and triple-glazed windows.
Viewings of the show house will be held tomorrow, between 2pm and 4pm. The three homes are due to be finished by October.
