Prime Meath holding on market for €1.95m
There are some lovely period properties on the market right now but there is a limited market for the great big Georgian pile on the rambling estate. In contrast, there is a growing demand for the middle to larger-sized house on a decent farm.
Drumman near Duleek in Co Meath is such a property; it comprises a tastefully refurbished 18th century house with a restored gate lodge and a summer lodge on 102ac of good Meath ground.
Savills are guiding €1.95m for the entire. Located 4km from Duleek, 12km from Drogheda and 47km from Dublin Airport, the holding is described by Harriet Grant of Savills as a prime rural property.
Drumman, which was completely restored in 2002, is approached by two avenues from different roads with the main tarmac roadway leading over a hump-backed railway bridge to the front of the house set in lovely mature gardens with fine stands of trees.
The second avenue leads to the house through the farmyard.
The property also includes a fully renovated stone gate lodge that is in itself a fine house.
The lodge includes an open-plan living room and kitchen, a solid fuel stove and some lovely features including a fully fitted new kitchen, a bathroom and utility room.
The two bedrooms, one of which has ensuite facilities, are spacious and well finished.
