STANDING on approximately 13 acres of land, The Glebe House dates from 1880 and was once the rectory for the nearby Church of Ireland.

With an asking price of €645,000, the house has been well maintained, and has managed to retain many of its original period features such as high ceilings, cornicing, architraves, original flooring and doors.

This space could be transformed to serve a number of purposes,including extra bedrooms.

In total, the house extends to some 427 sqm.

The accommodation on the ground floor consists of a sitting room with 3m-high ceilings, marble fireplace and solid-oak flooring, as well as a separate dining room.

There is also a breakfast room with windows to the front and side, and a back kitchen with fitted units.

There are five bedrooms on the first floor, all of which are a good size with original wooden shutters on the windows.

The main bathroom is also found on this floor, while there is also a shower wet room.

Outside, the house has a tree-lined driveway and a gravel forecourt, and private gardens surrounding the house.

There is also a large yard to the back with original stone-cut buildings.

Location-wise, the Glebe House is close to Collinstown village, while the town of Delvin is only a five-minute drive away.

The house is 12 miles from Mullingar, 17 miles from Kells, 28 miles from Navan and 50 miles from Dublin.
