Down on the farm in Co Meath
Foxwood House €550k+
Foxwood House, at Pelletstown in Co Meath, has something to offer buyers who like organic farming, or buyers who like horses, or better yet, buyers who like both.
It's a working organic farm with 23 acres and has scope to operate as some sort of equestrian facility too, as it has five stables, a tack room and a sand arena, as well as hay barns and a large yard.
Then there's the house itself - a quite substantial two-storey farmhouse that measures 3,500 sq ft and has landscaped gardens and a tennis court.
Built in 1990, Foxwood House has five bedrooms, of which four are en-suite.
All the bedrooms are on the first floor, as is the main family bathroom, where there's a corner bath.
The ground floor, meanwhile, is given over to living areas.
There are two main reception rooms - a sitting room measuring about 25ft by 16ft, with a marble fireplace, and a second reception room with a granite fireplace, a bay window and French doors to the patio.
Also on this level there's a study or playroom with built-in shelving and another bay window, and the kitchen, which has solid oak cabinets and a breakfast bar, and a sliding door out to the patio.
The nearest town is Dunshaughlin, about five kilometres away, while Dublin city centre is about 45 minutes' drive.
Foxwood House is available in an assortment of lots, depending on how much farming you're planning to do (and the agricultural area has its own entrance).
You can have the house on three acres for €550,000, or choose from among three separate options with extra lands and the yard.
If you want the whole property with 23 acres, the asking price is €800,000. The agent is REA Coonan in Maynooth (01) 628 6128.
