Meath farm on the market with a host of farm sheds on 41ac
Kilskyre on the Meath-Westmeath border is hurling country, so it was no surprise when the sight of hurleys and helmets greeted me in the utility room of a fine two-storey farmhouse in the aforementioned village.
Located across the road from the hurling field and within a short walk of school, church and the shop, this 41ac residential farm comes with a fine array of sheds and is on the private treaty market with a guide price of €650,000.
The roadside property is 6.5km from the M3 motorway and 10km from Kells. Built in the 1940s, the residence has been extended, modernised and maintained in top condition over the years.
The extensions have been sympathetically done, giving a fine solid structure that looks and feels like it is of one piece.
It maintains much of its original characteristics, including the original internal doors surrounded by fine woodwork in architraves and panelling.
The accommodation includes an entrance porch, an entrance hall, a comfortable and intimate sitting room, a fully-fitted kitchen incorporating a dining area and a lovely sunroom/morning room with pine ceiling and tiled floor. Upstairs is the family bathroom and four bedrooms, one of which is ensuite.
The house is in turn-key condition and has many modern features, including PVC windows and doors, wooden flooring and top-class kitchen equipment.
The residence is surrounded by neat, well-kept gardens with some charming features, including a barbecue area, shrubbery and lawns.
