- Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
- Overall Floor Area: 22.7ac
A beautifully proportioned Victorian home with original coach house and double stable set amid 22.7 acres of lush grassland and mature woodlands in the Boyne Valley (additional land holding of approx. 10.6 acres available by separate negotiation). Dunmoe House has some of the features of a good old style estate, most notably large white steel entrance gates and an old cut stone yard with a two-storey coach house. The main house is beautifully located on a secluded site with clear views over the river valley to rolling hills and mature woodlands. The spacious and well-proportioned accommodation is spread over three floors and extends to approx. 339 sq. m / 3,648 sq. ft. There are two good sized reception rooms on either side of a broad hallway with its original polished pine floors. Three rooms, all with dual aspects, open off the hall; a large dining room on the right; a smaller sitting room on the left and a kitchen/breakfast room towards the back of the building. Both reception rooms have large windows and marble fireplaces while the kitchen comes with hand painted fitted units and an oil-fired Aga which supplements the heating system. The ground floor also has a shower room and toilet. Upstairs there are four large bedrooms as well as the main bathroom with full sized steel bath and separate toilet. There is scope to add an en suite to one or more of the bedrooms. The basement is in good shape with the main area given over to a games room with a full sized snooker table and reception area. The remaining space is divided between an office, laundry, wine cellar and toilet. At the rear of the house across a cobbled yard is a two story stone cut coach house and double stable with recently replaced roof and potential to upgrade for residential or commercial use. Outside, the grounds are entered through electrically controlled wrought iron gates. The driveway sweeps by the estate's woodlands on the right to a parking apron in front of the house. It continues around to the back of the building, via gates, to the coach house. The lands and woods around the house extend to around 9.7 ha (22.63 acres), ensure its privacy and create an oasis of calm. It is set well back from the main Navan-Slane road yet close to all the facilities of both towns, as well as commutable distance from Dublin City Centre and the airport. The entire package of period house, lands, woods and fishing rights in an ideal location make for an exceptional property whose considerable charms could also be developed in a small boutique hotel or wedding venue. The property is particularly well known for its fishing activities and for ongoing improvements being carried out by Navan Anglers who lease several attractive stretches of the river. Location Dunmoe House is situated approximately 5.2km from the town of Navan and 7.3km from the village of Slane. Navan is a thriving business town with a host of high street shops, excellent schools, leisure and sport facilities, restaurants and hotels while Slane is home to the famous Slane Castle. There are a host of amenities in the area to cater for the modern family's needs including golfing, fishing, horse riding and racing not to mention the beautiful historical sites such as the Boyne Valley and Newgrange. Dublin is easily accessible by car in under an hour (approx. 51km) in light traffic while Dublin Airport is closer yet again.
