Coonan Property are honoured to present such a breathtaking residence to the market. Thomastown House is an utterly beautiful property resting centrally on over sixty-five acres of land. This south facing period property has some superb original features and was extensively renovated in 1996 to give it many of the modern must haves without taking away from its original old-world charm. It offers very spacious accommodation including a fine reception room, sitting room, formal dining room, five extra-large bedrooms, a boot room and an office that opens out to the beautiful peaceful gardens beyond. Thomastown House in the townland of Thomastown is approached via electric gates and a long, private, hedge and tree lined driveway which gives glimpses of the surrounding countryside and the house as you approach. The home blends into its natural surrounds with ease. It feels warm and welcoming upon approach. As you step through the front door you are immediately faced with a sense of what is to come. Quality, class and style ooze from exterior to interior. The charming front door opens onto a hallway that is exquisitely presented. Each room is picture perfect and yet the whole house feels like a wonderful place to call home, and emits a certain allure that befits the backdrop perfectly. There are original features such as marble fireplaces, cornicing and a centre rose and yet Thomastown House also subtly includes the modern. A stunning feature pitched glass roof floods light into the back hallway, marble countertops adorn the kitchen, and a zoned heating system heats the home. With a yard and stables to the rear alongside a separate three-bedroom cottage on the property, this is an opportunity to own one of the finest lots to be found in magnificent Co. Meath. Background The Kettlewell family appear to have owned the lands in the 1700s and in 1843 Evans Kettlewell of Thomastown was a subscriber to Samuel Lewis' Topographical Dictionary of Ireland. On his death in 1851 the control of the property passed to his cousin Echlin Molyneaux, a Queen's Counsel, and in 1869 Molyneaux leased the property to James Everitt, a JP, who had also leased land from the Duke of Bedford nearby. In 1923 John Lenehan took possession and farmed extensively and successfully. The present owners purchased Thomastown House and lands in 1996 and extensive restoration took place.
