This period home in Dundalk with seven bedrooms and 18 acres is on the market for €995,000

A Japanese garden, paddocks and stables, and a woodland walk are all included with this grand home.

As lockdown is set to continue for the foreseeable future, maybe you’d like to swap your surroundings for something a little grander and more spacious. 

If you have the budget, you could do a lot worse than Rathbrist House in Tallanstown. This home is full of period features, has space aplenty, and comes with so much land you could go for your daily walk without leaving your own property.

The large entrance hall features beautiful Victorian-style floor tiles, as well as decorative details like cornicing and a dado rail. It leads to the main reception rooms of the home, including a living room decorated in a sumptuous dark green. Featuring particularly high ceilings and a bay window, it’s a very impressive space.

Additional rooms include a dining room large enough to entertain a crowd, once such things were allowed, a smaller, cosier living room, and a study. The kitchen is traditional in style, yet painted in modern, calming neutrals. It features an Aga, and there is ample space for an additional dining table, for less formal meals.

The basement level contains a self-contained apartment, with its own separate access. There are two bedrooms on this level, and would be ideal for multi-generational living.

Upstairs there are five additional bedrooms, all with large windows and high ceilings. The main bedroom is a generous size, and has a modern ensuite. 

Outside, there is plenty more to explore on the 18.5 acres of land. The garden includes a Japanese-style area, as well as more traditional borders. There is also a walk which passes through the mature woodland and past a stream, while the remaining land is fenced in paddocks.

There is also a stone stable yard, comprising 18 stables, a tack room and feed room. An additional two-storey building is believed to have been a manager’s house, while there are also cut stone coach houses. These buildings have been maintained, but would need work to make them functional. Click through the gallery for the full tour of this house.
