Featherbed House, Newtown, Trim, Co Meath.
A rare opportunity to acquire a georgian gem in the Historic town of Trim. Featherbed is a new build and has been finished with exquisite period detail. The attractive entrance hall with feature staircase sets the sophisticated tone and understated Georgian grandeur of this lovely family home.
There is a large living room off the hall at the front. At the end of the hall a door leads to a large L-shaped open plan kitchen/dining/living area with a large ope leading to a beautiful Orangery to the rear of the house. The Orangery opens out to a paved patio area. A downstairs W.C and Utility Room complete the ground floor accommodation.
There are four large double bedrooms, two of which are en-suite and a large family bathroom on the first floor.
Great care has been taken with every detail from the perfectly proportioned Georgian sash windows to the natural slate roof to the extra high ceilings at ground floor level. All of this period detailing does not come at a compromise to energy efficiency. Featherbed House achieves an A BER rating through the
use of full fill twin leaf cavity walls, a gypsum or equivalent air tightness system and ultra efficient Air to Water heat pump technology
