Magnificent modern country home (approx. 740 sqm) built in the style of a bygone era, nestled on three acres of grounds and approached via a sweeping gravel driveway through imposing high walled entrance with electronically controlled wrought iron gates.
Tranquil rolling countryside setting with city accessibility. Located 7 km north of Drogheda and within 10 minutes’ drive of the M1 Motorway (Junction 10) enabling a commuting time of approx. 30 minutes to the M50 / Dublin Airport.

Eastwards, there are miles of safe sandy beaches within 10 minutes’ drive at Seapoint and Clogherhead not to mention world class golf courses at Baltray and Seapoint.
