Description"If you are looking for a home that's a little different, a bit quirky, nothing like the properties you have viewed recently, then Knockavery Lodge awaits you..."
Sherry FitzGerald Geraghty offer Knockavery Lodge to the market, a beautifully presented, light filled home of character, charm and space with a perfect blend of old and new standing on approx. .26ha / .64acre of grounds and located a short drive from Athboy Town.
Knockavery Lodge is an original stone cottage constructed approx. 1920 with two additional extensions, expanding the accommodation to approx. 195 sq m. The accommodation offers generous living space; formal and informal, 2 bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms, windows that frame various views of the gardens and capture sun all day long. The large gardens are laid in lawns, have mature shrub beds and a very large gravel area with patios where many a garden party has been had!
The residence is adjacent to Fr Murphy's Athletic Club and located a short distance from visual pleasures of the castle ruin of Frayne and Coilte managed Forest which is only a short walk away.
