A Georgian-style home close to the racecourse
Bellewstown House, Bellewstown, Co Meath
Six-bedroom house on five acres
Bellewstown House is a period Georgian-style home which offers enjoyable prospects for gardeners, horse lovers, tennis players or a family who simply want space to stretch their legs.
The house itself stretches over three levels and 288sqm and has been extensively renovated while retaining many of its period features.
It is located about 7kms from the Julianstown Junction 7 on the M1 motorway making it well located for commuting to Dublin, Drogheda and Dundalk.
Approached by a long avenue, the house sits in the centre of its lands and is surrounded by landscaped gardens with towering hardwoods, neat lawns and abundant shrubs and plants with winding paths meandering through the gardens and woodland, where over 120 species have been planted.
It also commands great views southward over Meath and Dublin.
At the peak of the market in 2007, it was bought prior to auction for around €2m and is now asking €1.15m.
Period features such as cornice work and ceiling roses are to be seen in the reception hall, sitting room and drawing room.
The latter rooms also have marble fireplaces, while the drawing room connects directly to the dining room.
The upgraded old-world-style kitchen is equipped with an Aga, electric cooker, dishwasher, range of timber units, a central island and a built-in breakfast table.
At first floor level, there are four bedrooms with plenty of storage space.
The master bedroom is en suite, while another bedroom has a marble fireplace.
A family bathroom is also located at this level, and the other two bedrooms are located at attic level.
Outside is a glass house for the enjoyment of gardeners, a cobbled courtyard, a coach house, a block with five stables, two garages and an all-weather tennis court.
It is located a few hundred yards from Bellewstown Racecourse, which hosts horse racing in July and August and is almost across the road from the local golf course.
There are several other golf courses and great beaches nearby.
