Description

Unique Architecturally Designed 4 Bed Residence
On Nicely Landscaped Site Extending to 0.44 Acre
Overlooking the River Boyne and Bective Abbey

Located in the Beautiful Boyne Valley
Convenient to the M3 Motorway, R147 & R161
Navan 9km       Trim 7.6km       Dublin 51km (Approx.)
 

The property is situated beside the River Boyne in Bective, only 9km from Meath's County Town of Navan, 7.6km from the thriving heritage town of Trim, 14km from Dunshaughlin and for the commuter just 51km from Dublin.  Bective is home to Bective Abbey.


Although set amidst rolling countryside in the heart of the Boyne Valley convenience is not compromised as the house is situated a mere 6.3km from the R147 (former N3) and from there less than 650 metres to the M3 motorway.  Easy accessibility to so many towns ensures that the very few amenities not readily available are still close at hand, including but not exclusive a wide choice of pre-, primary & secondary school, healthcare services including Our Lady's hospital, Navan, a host of retailers both local and national, ecclesiastical services, pubs, restaurants, cinemas, libraries and Arts Centres.  For those who enjoy more sporting pursuits there is no shortage of choice including hunting in the immediate vicinity with three packs, shooting, fishing, football and hurling not to mention the entire area being steeped in the tradition of horses with Fairyhouse and Navan Racecourses nearby.  Golfers may be impressed by the close proximity to Royal Tara Golf Club, which is among Ireland's most enjoyable golfing retreats with 27 holes in mature parkland and to the course at Killeen Castle designed by Jack Nicklaus.
   
Dublin City is within 35-40 minutes when using the motorway.  For those who use public transport CIE run a service with stops closeby and there is also the park and ride facility at Dunboyne Rail Station 20 minutes away. 

With so many amenities at hand one could be forgiven for questioning if this is country living at all, but make no mistake, a home here is a home in the heart of the historic and beautiful Royal County.  The Hill of Tara, only 8km from the residence, was once the ancient seat of power in Ireland.  In Irish religion and mythology it was the sacred dwelling place of the Gods, and the entrance to the otherworld.  St. Patrick is said to have come to Tara to confront the religion of the pagans at its most powerful site.  Today it is an ideal place for walking and enjoying the outstanding views of the surrounding countryside, there is an excellent restaurant next to the heritage site where you can grab your lunch.  Other nearby attractions include Dunsany Castle, Killeen Castle, Trim Castle and Bective Abbey where in 1994/95 scenes from the Mel Gibson film ‘Braveheart’, were filmed.

A useful outbuilding 3.6 x 5.38, outside tap and vehicular side access provide further convienient living.
