DescriptionChris Smith of Quillsen presents to the Autumn market this extended three bedroom country cottage with various out-houses set on approximately a half an acre site situated less than a mile from the bustling town of Athboy.
This property is likely to prove popular with several segments of the market, not least first time buyers, who can buy now, freeing themselves from the much dreaded rental market, and perhaps further extending the residence, as needs be in the future. Others may choose to retreat from further out the country, on convenience and downsizing bases, this being the ideal position on the fringes of the town.
The Hill of Ward is a much treasured Athboy location with its peak some 500 metres to the east. It is believed that during medieval times it was the site of great festivals, including one at which winter fires or bone fires were lit at Samhain, essentially Halloween nowadays. It is associated with the figure Tlachtga, a druidess in Irish mythology who is said to have given birth to triplets on the hill.
This property located at the Hill of Ward is set in the country, fronting the Dunderry Road, less than a mile from Athboy and therefor offers the best of both town and country. A small but vibrant town, Athboy boasts a wealth of shopping and community facilities, clubs and amenities to cater for its increasing population. These include both primary and post primary schools as well as Athboy Childcare Centre (3 months to 12 years includes afterschool club), supermarkets, pharmacies, bank, credit union, two hotels, various unique hostelries, tennis and basketball courts, a library, GAA pitches, rugby and soccer pitches together with an array of community and recreational groups.
The Rathcairn Gaeltacht area is some 3km distant proving for primary and post-primary schools through Irish amongst other facilities.
Athboy on the N51 is located 12 miles west of the county town of Navan and within easy commuting distance of Dublin which lies just 35 miles to the south-east. The nearby heritage towns of Trim, with its magnificent ruins of King Johns Castle, and Kells offer further shopping and recreational facilities both lying some 12km equidistant. This is a popular location with city commuters with the M3 being only 12.5 miles drive (Junction 9 Navan North).

DirectionsFrom Athboy, turn off the N51 onto the Dunderry Road. Proceed for approximately 1.3km whereupon the property can be seen on the right hand side, some 500 metres or so before the crest of the Hill of Ward.
Size114 sq. metres approximately
OutsideThe property is secured from the road by a masonry built roadside wall with entrance defined by piers having wrought iron gates. One continues to the residence over a bitumen type surfaced driveway and circulation space, that doubles as secure parking space, and ultimately leads to the double garage. There is a lawned area to the front of the residence primarily laid under lawn being decorated with various flowers and shrubs and with privacy and added colour provided by way of hedging and trees. To the rear, there is ample ground suitable for a multitude of uses. That together with the double garage and an array of out-houses, make this ideal for those who have plans and uses for such space. The possibilities and potential here is huge.
