Property Features

Contemporary Country living

A long avenue leads to the farmhouse. As soon as you pass through the double doors of the main entrance you intuitively relax. The decor is gentle, fresh and familiar.

The sitting room basks in the warmth from a large wood burning stove.

The walls in this house are thick, with deep window ledges and panel shutters of gleaming white.

The kitchen too is bright, with panelled doors, oak floors, and a traditional Belfast sink. The sitting room has an open stairwell leading to the two upstairs double bedrooms.

It’s a large room with a dining area at one end, and is the family hub. Chairs are augmented with banquet seating along one side.
The fridge and other utilities are kept in the sunny walk-in pantry, just beyond the kitchen. There is also a separate laundry room.

One of these rooms has an additional single bed, and both have ensuite shower rooms. All the bedrooms have a particular charm, unique wallpaper, TV, and quality bed linen.

A third double bedroom on the ground floor has another wood-burning stove, and an additional single bed.

Outside

There is an abundance of room to ramble around the property, with a patio for Barbeques and a herb garden for gourmets.

Facilities

The house is centrally heated and equipped with everything you would expect in a luxury home – from clothes dryer to barbeque, DVD and videos. Bicycles are available too. If you have a particular requirement, be sure to tell us.

Out and About

Whether you’re into cycling, kayaking or history, there is a wealth of experiences to be enjoyed in Meath.

Things to do

The Locality

There is a local supermarket just down the road, but for main shops Kells is 7k away, and the M3 will take you to Dublin in less than an hour. The whole area of the Boyne Valley is steeped in ancient history and mythology, and Meath itself is known as the Royal County – the Hill of Tara was the historical seat of the High King of Ireland.

The passage tombs at Newgrange were constructed around 3,200 BC, predating the Pyramids of Egypt by 600 years, and are well worth a visit. River fishing for Trout and Salmon, and lake fishing for Pike attract legions of anglers to this region and there are a number of well established angling centres.

Kayaking and even white water rafting are to be had on the river Boyne, and make for a great day out.
One of the best ways to enjoy the landscape is on a bike, but this is fox hunting territory, so keep your head down.

The house is about 18K from Tara Mines, Europe’s largest underground lead-zinc mine, and 9th in the world.

Foxhollow is very close to two protected and rare raised Bogs.
The Girley Bog Eco Walk at just 5.5K, covers varying landscape of forest and bogland and is educational and enjoyable.
