Full Description

The accommodation extends to an approximate gross internal area: of 372 sq.m. (4,000 sq.ft.) and is finished to a very high standard throughout. Newrath House is a period Georgian property enjoying views of County Meath and the 3 landmark hills of Slane, Tara and Skreen. The house dates from 1790 and was fully renovated in 2008 when a modern 2-storey extension was added. The house has an attractive entrance hall which leads to a drawing room and a lounge with dining room to rear, a ground floor guest wc, utility room and a traditional kitchen with family room. The bedroom accommodation comprises 5 bedrooms, 4 of which are en-suite.  There is a large gallery linking the original period house with a new 2-storey extension. This features a full height glass screen overlooking the walled garden to the rear, and an extensive balcony. The first floor summer room is a particular feature. It is fully glazed on 3 sides with a balcony all around and overlooks the entire holding. The house has a pebble driveway with recreated period style railings on either side. There is gas fired central heating throughout. The property will appeal to persons interested in a peaceful rural location with 75 acres of fine agricultural lands suitable for farming on a full or part time basis. 


Equestrian features of the property include approx. 70 acres in fenced paddocks, a 22-furlong fenced cross-country gallop; a 5-furlong turf gallop adjacent to the all-weather gallop and extensive land drainage. There is a 2.6km bridle path around the perimeter of the property which allow full access to the lands.  The property is also a lovely walking amenity. The Mares’ Block, situated near the residence, is of modern circular design and consists of 10 large foaling boxes.  A compact residential unit was created in the building for staff use and there is a hay barn and tack room. On the adjoining property, which is not in sale, the vendors previously created a state-of-the-art equestrian complex to include 11 residential houses and American barns, and the main entrance. These units were built and finished to a high standard in 2010.
