There is good value in the property market at the moment, especially in housing. This is good news for the customer searching for the house with a few acres in the country.

With a guide price of €390,000, a large bungalow set on 14ac with 34 loose boxes, a detached garage, hayshed, yard and an all-weather track the property surely represents something of a bargain -- and it will be sold at auction in March.

Located at Killowen, Castlejordan, Co Meath, 15 minutes from both Kinnegad and Mullingar, this house and equestrian holding is a new, well-finished property.

The residence was built in 2004 and has never been lived in, while outside is a stable yard that has 22 loose boxes and a shed with 12 interior boxes.

According to auctioneer Tom Fox, the property is a ready-made equestrian holding.

The bungalow is a bright, airy house with accommodation that includes five bedrooms (one ensuite), sitting room, kitchen/dining room, bathroom and utility room.

The wide entrance hall has timber flooring that continues into the sitting room with its large bow window and feature fireplace.

Double doors open into the kitchen/dining room, which is fully fitted and includes integrated appliances.

A corridor leads to the five double bedrooms, all of which have timber flooring.

To the rear of the bungalow is the stable yard with 22 loose boxes finished with high quality stable doors and a shed with 12 interior boxes. Other facilities include a hay shed and the base for an automatic horse walker.

The land, divided into a 10ac field and a smaller paddock, is fenced with stud post-and-rail fencing and has an all-weather gallop running around the perimeter of the land.

Adjacent to the house is a double garage with electric doors.

Mr Fox is confident he will have a good day at the auction when the property is offered for sale at the Hilamar Hotel, Kinnegad, at 3.30pm on Thursday, March 29.
