Description

**NEW** to the market from Quillsen (Navan): An impressive period country house retreat with the option of c. 5.74 acres OR c. 27.3 acres of lush farm land.

Set within a beautiful lush circa 27.3 acre holding that runs to the River Boyne, Riverstown House comprises an extended period residence, spanning an impressive c. 432 square metres otherwise 4,650 square feet or thereabouts.

This spacious family home is idyllically nestled at the end of a magnificent private tree lined avenue, flanked by a wooded area, with head waters of the Boyne, on one side and on the other by a grassland paddock. This lovely approach avenue opens to wonderful gardens, an orchard and a gravelled apron. The latter provides ample circulation and parking area, leads to the house and continues to the farmyard, that is sustained by many useful out-buildings.

This property makes an atmospheric and characterful large family home, and given its interesting layout could accommodate an extended family – for years Riverstown was enjoyed as two homes. Moreover, Riverstown House previously served as a Bord Fáilte approved Country Guest House.

Farm Land

The lands while presently predominately laid under lush grassland pasture, could serve a wide multitude of enterprises. Given their apparent high quality and with the Boyne running alongside, they could serve equally as well for arable purposes. Nicely sheltered by mature hedgerow and trees, the lands are complimented by a range of barns, stables, former milking parlour, and lofted buildings with granary amongst other developed structures.

With an option of acquiring the residence on c. 5.74 acres (2.323ha approx.), aspiring smallholders or those in search of a largely self-sufficient good life and those with green fingered aspirations will have a field-day here, pardon the pun. For those buying in its entirety, on c. 27.3 acres (11.05 ha approx.), this fine residential holding offers a compact commercial farm.

This Kildare property offers endless potential for a discerning buyer who could explore and fully exploit its many locational, natural and developed features, including the potential to develop new, or redevelop existing buildings, to accommodate further on-farm accommodation. On top of that, there are many agri-tourism opportunities or indeed other alternative commercial operations that could be given consideration. As well as carrying on an agricultural enterprise, the current entrepreneurial owners have for years run a business here from converted out-houses. The possibilities at Riverstown are endless.

Location

Riverstown is conveniently set some 750 metres off the R402 and ten minutes or thereabouts from the M4 motorway, making for easy connections with the M50, Dublin City and Airport, and further afield. The university town of Maynooth is just over twenty minutes or so drive. To travel West, the M4 links seamlessly with the M6 a short distance away, rendering a drive to Galway a short and pleasant trip.

The towns of Enfield, with train station (Dublin/Longford/Sligo line), and Edenderry, provide for extensive local hospitality and shopping requirements and include numerous long established indigenous retailers as well as many of the multiples with Aldi, Dunnes, Lidl, SuperValu and Tesco amongst them. The towns of Clane, Kildare, Naas and Newbridge broaden the offering locally within the county, and indeed, the Liffey Valley Shopping Centre is convenient too. That’s topped off by the stellar offering at Kildare Village outlet that counts brands such as Avoca, Barbour and Musto amongst its lineout of impressive brands.

Here, one will be spoilt for options. The local rugby club is just two kilometres away while there is a choice of golf courses within a five-minute drive. Championship courses at The K Club, Tullamore and Mullingar, all within half hours drive offer further excellent choices. Various other sporting clubs along with their facilities operate locally and include Gaelic football, hurling, camogie and soccer facilities. County Kildare, being home of the National Stud, is synonymous with bloodstock – a thirty-minute drive takes one to The Curragh and Kilbeggan Racecourses. The Grand Canal and the Royal Canal, at Edenderry and Enfield respectively, and their respective Greenways, provide a wholesome recreation resource for walkers, joggers or those cycling. Fishing and water pursuits are also popular local activities. With the Boyne adjoining along with the many local lakes one will be spoilt for choice and Kildare also offers great hunting to those interested. A good choice of both primary and post primary schools serve the local area and there are also many extracurricular activities available for outside school hours.

Given its idyllic country yet convenient location, this property is sure to appeal to those who appreciate or wish to experience the best of rural life and want to immerse themselves with country pursuits and endeavours, but wish to remain within half an hour of Dublin’s environs.
