'Idyllic' equestrian country home on market
'Idyllic' is a word often used in the property market to describe various properties – some would say it is overused.
However, Moate auctioneer Denis O'Roarke had no hesitation in applying the description to 'Hall Farm', a small equestrian property with a fully renovated stone-built house, guest apartment and outhouses set on 34.5ac at Kill near Moate in Co Westmeath.
The property is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €500,000.
Located 2km from the M4 motorway the property is 3km from Moate and 10km from Athlone.
Originally a substantial homestead, the house and yard are laid out in a range of stone buildings that have been completely renovated while retaining their original character.
The accommodation in the two-storey house includes four bedrooms, living room, dining room and a kitchen complete with an AGA cooker.
A stream runs through the yard and a little stone bridge connects the house to the stable yard.
Out buildings and other facilities include a one- bedroomed, stone-built apartment with a living room and a bathroom, a coach house and six loose boxes with a fully lofted area above.
