About this property

  • Set in a tranquil, rural location, Aisling offers a buyer a chance to renovate a fine family home and make it their own. The property is well known locally having been painted a bright pink in years gone by and was used as a landmark for helicopters carrying people to concerts at Slane Castle. It is now ideal for families who are looking for more space both inside and outside while remaining within touching distance of Dublin City and Airport.

    Aisling provides a spacious, well-proportioned, light filled and comfortable family home set on its own grounds of about 1 acre. Originally built on one of the fields from the family farm in 1979, the property provided a loving and welcoming home for each of the 5 siblings who grew up there. Given the restrictions on one-off house building in rural Meath, Aisling offers a buyer a unique opportunity to remodel an existing house. It is also in the advantageous position with the potential to qualify for government refurbishment grants of up to €50,000.

    The two-storey 2,346 sq. ft house was built using traditional methods and comes to the market in good move-in condition however there are some decorative updates required to make it a modern family home.

    The ground floor comprises a hallway, kitchen/dining room, dining room, living room, playroom/ office, utility room and a garage that is ideal for conversion.

    On the first floor there are 4 double bedrooms with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and a family bathroom. There is also access to the attic from the landing.

    The accommodation extends to about 218 sq. m / 2,346 sq. ft and a full layout of the accommodation is shown on the adjoining floorplans.

    Garden and Grounds
    The property sits at the centre of a 1.1-acre site surrounded by lush green fields and countryside walks in the heart of the Boyne Valley.

    The current owners developed the back garden into a vegetable plot which provided regular produce for the kitchen table. They also landscaped the front garden, which was full of wonderful flowers, shrubs, trees and lawned areas that provided endless entertainment for the family.

    The site has a gated access and a sweeping driveway to the front of the house with enough parking for up to 5 cars. The current owners have scaled back the gardens in recent times and now it offers the new buyer an opportunity to stamp their own mark on it.
