In Co Meath, €2.75 million gets you a Georgian mansion, 120 acres of land, formal gardens, a cottage and stable yard
09th Nov 2020
For the millionaire looking to make their money go further, this property in Co Meath offers a lot for its (still rather large) price tag.
If you want to spend close to €3 million on a home, Dublin has plenty to offer. You could have a five bed home in some of its most sought after areas, a garden big enough for the kids to run around in, and a flashy kitchen for your budget.
However, if you look outside the capital, millionaire buyers will find they can get even more for their money. The Mountainstown Estate in Navan, Co Meath is a great example.
Not only do you get a period home with grand reception rooms, ornate decorative details and no less than nine bedrooms, you get all the trappings of a country estate, including 120 acres of land, a ‘gardener’s’ cottage and a stable yard.
You enter the main house by climbing stone steps up to the front door, and the large hallway has decorative panelling and bannisters, as well as intricate plaster detailing on the ceiling. This leads to the four main reception rooms, the library, breakfast room, drawing room and dining room.
The library features original leather wall covering in a deep oxblood shade, while the drawing room and dining room are exceptionally bright thanks to large bay windows.
One of the most modern rooms in the house, the kitchen features sleek Scavolini units, yet its high ceilings and large windows maintain the character of this old home. There is also a study and playroom on this floor.
Upstairs, all the bedrooms have wonderful views over the surrounding gardens and land, and all are generously sized. Five of the bedrooms are ensuite.
On the basement level, there are a number of additional useful rooms, including a gym, billiards room, party room which used to serve as a servants’ hall, a music room, an additional kitchen, and a garden sitting room that leads outside to a sunken patio.
The 120 acres of land comprises a mix of woodland, parkland, and pastures, as well as a series of gardens, and a Georgian Gothic cottage that was preciously the home of the head gardener.
The estate also has three separate yards. The stable yard has 25 stables, coach houses, tack rooms, and a large open stone barn. There is also a traditional L-shaped stone farm yard which is a mix of two storey and single storey buildings, which are in need of restoration, and a farm yard with slatted sheds and barns.
