Positioned in a secluded and peaceful setting amidst the backdrop of the beautiful and historic countryside of the Boyne Valley is this magnificent gated five bedrooms detached family residence.
Extending to approximately 306m2 (c.3,300 sq. ft) and sitting on a beautifully maintained mature site of c. 3 acres, this property presents an excellent opportunity for someone wishing to live in the countryside, yet still within easy reach of major road links and larger surrounding towns including Drogheda and Navan.
Located just off the N2 near Balrenny Cross, the property is only c. 4km from Slane and c. 5km from Collon, Co. Louth, where the M1 motorway can be easily accessed for Swords, Dublin and the Airport.

The area is steeped in local history and is also known as Ledwidge Country, being the birthplace of famous Irish Poet, Francis Ledwidge. There are many historic landmarks nearby, including Slane Castle, the Hill of Slane and Mellifont Abbey. There are also local schools nearby to include St. Patrick’s National School and some local convenience shops on the N2 / Collon Road.
The property itself boasts an array of wonderful features and spacious accommodation. One of the immediate striking features of the house is the amount of natural light that fills the rooms and the immaculately clean condition it is kept in by the current owner. Upon entering the property you arrive in a very spacious and bright entrance hallway, which leads off to the large sitting room with open plan dining area, second reception, kitchen, two bedrooms, a study and a downstairs bathroom. Off the kitchen, to the rear of the property, there is a further hallway, which leads to a store room, utility room, guest WC and office room. There is also access to the large double garage, which adjoins the side of the house.
The upstairs is set into the eaves of the roof. Here, there are three further bedrooms, which are all ensuite. The master bedroom benefits from a large walk-in wardrobe and there is an incredible amount of storage space within the attic eaves.
The grounds of the property are entered through decorative wrought iron gates. There is a sweeping tree lined driveway which leads up to a courtyard area to the front of the residence. There is a secluded seating area with a small fishpond to one side and hidden away privately on the other side are kennels. Tucked away to the rear is a large lawned garden, which benefits from fruit trees and is surrounded by mature trees for privacy. Also, to the front, there is a large fenced paddock area, ideal for horses. The property is accessed via a private residential byroad off the L5604 from the main N2, however, there is also access off the main N2 road whereby a private driveway could be added.
