Savills are delighted to present Old Kilcarty, a charming Georgian house with wonderful gardens, a range of useful outbuildings all of which is set within its own 2.22 ha / 5.5 acres.
Dating from c. 1770's and benefiting from a complete renovation in the early 1990's, this fine home is idyllically positioned on a quiet country road in the heart of lush County Meath.
The accommodation in brief comprises a spacious welcoming hall, the large drawing room with bay window and French doors onto the terrace, the dining room and also the bright kitchen with a good sized utility room and guest WC. On the first floor the wide light filled landing gives access to 5 bedrooms and the main bathroom. The house boasts many period features, some of which are original to the house while others were painstaking sourced from other Georgian houses. Many of the sash windows are framed by wood panelled shutters, the solid pine staircase came from a house on Henrietta Street, as did the decorative uprights and the reception rooms have coved ceilings befitting a house of its era.
The house is approached through a stone walled and pillared entrance to the large forecourt which is framed by a laurel hedge. The gardens are mainly to the rear of the house and are extensive lawn areas interspersed with mature specimen trees, flowerbeds and shrubbery. French doors lead from both the drawing room and the kitchen to the suntrap sheltered terrace with full vista of the gardens and the paddocks beyond. In addition, there is a large well planted vegetable garden with raised asparagus bed and dividing pathways. On the north east side of the property is found the walled orchard with plentiful fruit trees.
The lands extend to approximately 3 acres and are current laid out in 3 grass paddocks with the addition of an overwintering turnout arena. The range of two storey stone outbuildings include 3 stables, the tack room, a large workshop / coach house, storeroom, all of which are lofted. The lofted area is excellent space running the full length of the building and ripe for further development if one wished (subject to necessary planning permission). It would make excellent secondary accommodation and could have its own private garden (the orchard); alternatively it is super space to convert into a home office or studio. There is also a two bay lean too currently used as a car port and for storage.
