Set on a generous site of landscaped gardens, this Meath family home is on sale for €575,000

Set on a generous site of landscaped gardens, this Meath family home is on sale for €575,000

Formerly the home of a baron and baroness, this exceptional Meath home has had quite the royal revamp — it’s complete with a home office, sauna and shower room, and a balcony off the master bedroom.

Currently on the market for €575,000 through Sherry FitzGerald Reilly, ‘Villa Banyula’ is an exceptional four-bedroom family home located in Kilberry, Navan, Co. Meath.

A property resided in by Baron Chris and Baroness Mary Van Lawick for the past ten years, this dormer bungalow served as a castle to them, providing a peaceful retreat in the surrounds of the blissful countryside. Over the years, they certainly put a royal touch on the property through tasteful interior choices and making sure the mature gardens are well tended to.

Meath home

Set on over half an acre of landscaped gardens with planted raised beds, a water feature, patio areas, and lawned gardens with mature specimen trees and hedges, this property has undergone extensive modernisation works over the past number of years.

Boasting a BER rating of B3, which is highly respectable for a house that was originally built in 1988, the property has double-glazed windows throughout, and a fully insulated attic. The heating system has also been upgraded to gas, and the walls have been pumped with insulation. The property also has original parquet flooring running throughout the hall.

Meath home

On the ground floor, there is a sitting room, kitchen and utility area, a family room, an at-home office, a sauna and shower room, and a bedroom and bathroom. Upstairs, there is an incredible master bedroom with a generously sized balcony that looks out over the front garden, and an en suite bathroom with both a large bath and a shower. There are two other large bedrooms and a bathroom on this level.

Meath home

Outside, the gardens are flush with hedging and colourful planting, and there are enough mature trees to maintain a sense of privacy from both the road and neighbouring houses. Situated in rural Kilberry, Navan town is just a five-minute drive away. The home is also in close proximity to a whole host of local amenities including shops, schools, pubs, and restaurants.
