Tour the incredible interiors of this renovated gate lodge in Navan, on sale for €305,000

Located in Johnsbrook, Fordstown, Navan, Co. Meath, this beautiful gate lodge makes for the perfect romantic hideaway.

Dating back to 1910, this elegantly finished Meath property has been carefully maintained and lovingly restored by its current owner into a four-room cottage overlooking mature gardens in an idyllic setting.

On the market for €305,000 through REA T&J Gavigan (Kells), this property would make for an ideal option for first-time buyers.

The gable of the Lodge faces the road, with a single-storey entrance porch. A central chimney breast divides the building and provides fireplaces in all four rooms. Renovation works were carried out on the Lodge in 2011, with many modern features.

Accommodation comprises the entrance porch, living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. The renovation works — carried out on the Lodge in 2010/2011 subsequent to receipt of planning permission — includes the provision of underfloor oil-fired heating downstairs with period cast iron radiators upstairs, internal insulation of walls, rewiring and plumbing to provide upstairs toilet and bathroom.

The external works include the insertion of new French drains around the perimeter of the property, a new aqua sewage waste treatment, a new percolation area and a new vehicular entrance with parking area for the house.

More recently, a new sealed drinking water well was installed in 2016 by Briody’s, and the roof was also redone in 2016.

In terms of finishes, the kitchen was made by Fitzgerald’s of Kells and includes a Smegg gas range cooker. The slate tiles found throughout the ground floor are from Fired Earth as are the kitchen and bathroom tiles. The freestanding copper bath came from the Victorian Salvage company. There’s also a Charnwood wood-burning stove in the living room.

Nearby amenities include Girley Bog which is a designated Special Area of Conservation as a raised bog and located within walking distance of the Lodge. This provides a looped walk in this beautiful natural heritage area.
