* Watch our walk-through video *

Originally a cottage for Dardistown Castle located due west, this lovely country property offers its new owners exciting times ahead and perhaps even a slice of The Good Life! A wrought iron garden gate, framed by an arched trellis pergola, leads through to a garden path running up a glazed front porch. Immediately inside to the right, a generously proportioned sitting room is dual aspect and has a brick fireplace with timber mantel as an attractive focal point. Off the hall corridor, there are three double bedrooms; two with built-in wardrobes (BIW). All bedrooms and sitting room have laminate wooden floors. There is a useful storage closet and a picture window offering a sneak peek to the enclosed front garden. A family bathroom with bath, wc & whb, has fully tiled walls and vinyl floor covering. The homely eat-in kitchen has views of front and back gardens. There is a range of fitted kitchen units and a gas stove and fridge freezer. Homeowners will most likely use the rear glazed hall porch to come and go on a daily basis.      

Outside, to the rear, there is a generous private paved terrace which is a real sun trap from noon through to late evening. A small flight of steps leads up to a lovely raised lawn area which is bordered by hedging and mature trees. Flower beds are brimming over with a variety of specimen shrubs and flowering plans. There is even a garden swing to while away those sunny afternoons! An arched entrance leads through to the rear grounds which are home to fruit trees and a large polytunnel (60ft x 30ft) which was used for many years by the previous owners. To the front of the house, there is a lawn and driveway leading up to the detached block-built garage / outbuilding. Very useful for workshop or storage use, it also incorporates a plumbed utility space and toilet with whb.   

Dardistown is a townland lying west of Julianstown village which straddles the R132 connecting Drogheda to the M1 Motorway at (non-tolled) Junction 7. Julianstown is home to the popular Whitecross NS and the Lime Kiln gastro pub. Within easy reach of a choice of beaches (Corballis, Laytown / Bettystown), there is also ease of access to Laytown, Bettystown, Drogheda and Balbriggan for shopping and leisure activities. Proximity to Laytown mainline train station and several daily private & public bus services via Julianstown to Dublin city / Airport.
