Attractive 78 acre residential farm affording a development opportunity.
Clondoogan House is particularly well located on the fringe of the village of Summerhill fronting the R156 Rathmolyon road lying about 10km from the historic market town of Trim, just 12 km from Kilcock / M4 Motorway affording quick and easy daily commuting to the capital, which lies just 50 km to the Southeast of the property. The pretty village has largely grown up around the village green at the main entrance to Summerhill House reputed to have been one of the finest and grandest Palladian style mansions in Europe. The house which was destroyed by fire was the ancestral seat of the Viscounts Langford-Rowley family. The tree lined avenue and the main entrance, a focal point of the village are all that remains of Summerhill House today.
The village is a vibrant thriving place catering adequately for all the day to day shopping requirements and also boasts a new state of the art Summerhill Primary Care Centre as well as a good choice of educational facilities including a number of private day and boarding schools all within easy driving distance. Country and Leisure pursuits in and around the area include hunting with the Meath Foxhounds, Tara Harriers, both hunts meeting regularly and within easy boxing distance. Horseracing is available at Navan, Fairyhouse, Naas and the Curragh as well as numerous sporting clubs including GAA, Soccer, Rugby, Tennis etc., all close at hand. The locality is well supported by an established farming infrastructure with abbatoirs, contractors, merchants & Delvin Livestock Market and other service industries all close at hand.
