  • Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
  • Overall Floor Area: 232 m²
Located on the fringe of the popular town of Athboy, Ardeevin comprises an impressive, yet immensely charming residence of character set amidst mature grounds and gardens including a rockery that extend to circa 0.9 of an acre together with out-buildings, including garage, dairy and cowsheds, reminiscent of a goneby era, sited thereon too. Built in 1938 and being in floor area of some 2,500 sq.ft. or thereabouts, Ardeevin incorporates a detached three-bay two storey house set beneath a hipped slate roof with brick chimneystacks and having a roughcast rendered exterior. It features magnificent full-height bay windows flanking a central bay having recessed porch with round-headed concrete hood and terrazzo threshold. This property is listed forming part of the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage (NIAH). In addition to the usual ancillary rooms, the residence essentially provides three well-appointed reception rooms and at first floor level, there are five bedrooms. Owing to the presence of the full-height bay windows, the drawing room and the dining room as well as the two principal bedrooms stand out as exceptionally graceful rooms due to their light-filled proportions and decorative features. While refurbishment and retrofitting work will likely be a requirement and aspiration of a buyer, the residence remains in occupation and so it could be a live and work project, allowing a purchaser sufficient time to rebuild their resources, completing their dream family home within their own timeline, budget and style. LOCATION A small but vibrant town set within the Boyne Valley, Athboy boasts a wealth of shopping and community facilities, clubs and amenities to cater for its increasing population. These include both primary and post primary schools as well as creche, supermarkets, pharmacies, bank, credit union, hotels, hostelries, tennis and basketball courts, a library, GAA pitches, rugby and soccer pitches together with an array of community and recreational groups. Athboy on the N51 is located 18km from Navan and within easy commuting distance of Dublin which lies just 58km to the south-east. The nearby heritage towns of Trim, with its magnificent ruins of King Johns Castle, and Kells offer further shopping and recreational facilities both lying 13km distant from the town respectively. This is a popular location with city commuters with the M3 being only 14.5km away.

OUTSIDE Ardeevin is approached from the road through both pedestrian and vehicular entrances over a pebble driveway, flanked on either side by gardens, sweeping by the side and around the house leading to the front and rear entrances as well as to the outhouses. There is a roughcast rendered roadside wall and both entrances are gated being secured by cast-iron entrance gates. The grounds are largely laid under lawns with some fine trees including a wonderful Araucaria araucana (otherwise monkey puzzle) that provide for shelter, privacy and colour. The grounds are further decorated by various shrubs and flowers. The outhouses include a lofted garage, coal house and dairy building with single storey cowshed appended to the rear together with another separate cowshed, all of which could be repurposed for a multitude of uses.
