Attractive farmhouse on about 60 acres with fantastic views
Extending to about 60.2 acres / 24.4 hectares in total, Snowtown is a top-quality residential farm in one of the most sought-after locations on the border of North County Dublin and County Meath.
The agricultural element of the property comprises some of the best tillage land in Ireland and is suitable for all farming enterprises. There is also a good complement of multi-functional outbuildings and a large storage shed.
The traditional farmhouse comes to the market in good condition. A fine family home, it has 4 double bedrooms, 1 single bedroom and 2 reception rooms.
The farm is available for sale as a whole or in lots as follows:
Lot 1 Snowtown Farmhouse on 4.3 hectare / 10.6 acres
Entered through stone pillars and iron gates, the farmhouse is presented very well externally and sits perched in an elevated position overlooking some of the best farmland in the country. The property benefits from a welcoming hallway, kitchen/dining room, living room, sitting room, pantry, and a ground-floor bedroom which could easily be used as a third reception room. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms, including a master bedroom suite and a family bathroom. Some of the more important features of the home are the high ceilings in the bedrooms, the original fireplaces which create a lovely authentic atmosphere, and finally the sweeping spectacular views.
There is a range of outbuildings to the side of the house, including a large, enclosed storage shed and a hay barn. There are also some attractive stone heritage outbuildings that could be used for further accommodation (S.P.P.) and a coal shed. These outbuildings can be accessed from the yard behind the house and are in need of remedial work. There is also a shed to the front of the house at a lower level accessible from the grasslands and a garage that is attached to the house which is
split into two parts internally.
We are offering approx. 10.6 acres with Snowtown House. This land is located to the west of the house and is of mixed quality gently sloping to a glen. Primarily used to graze animals, the land is well-drained running into a stream and could be used for
many types of agricultural enterprises.
Lot 2 Snowtown Farmland extending to about 20.1 hectares / 49.6 acres
The land at Snowtown is of exceptional quality, south facing and is divided by the
local access road.
This lies within a well-drained, slightly sloped ring-fenced block and includes productive and versatile ground, currently growing a potato and cereal crop. This Fingal/Meath land is among some of the finest in the country and has been carefully maintained by the vendor's family for decades.
The land is laid out in 3 fields of good size and shape for modern agriculture which are enclosed by a mature hedgerow. Access to the land is through shared access off the local road.
Again, the land is sloped gently, in one division, ring-fenced and well drained and is accessible off the local access road. The land is bounded by mature hedgerow on 3 sides and Snowtown House on one side. The field has been most recently in a cereal crop.
