Take Three: Properties for sale from Navan to Kilmessan
Poetic Navan Address
One of the most romantic areas on Navan has to be Donaghmore, with its round tower and tales of Slane poet Francis Ledwidge visiting the home of his good friend Matty McGoona, who is said to have seen Ledwidge appear as a vision in Navan the night he was killed on the World War I battlefields.
Donaghmore Lane is widely regarded as being one of Navan's premier addresses, with an array of impressive family homes set on generous private sites just minutes from Navan town, in an idyllic rural setting. Sherry Fitzgerald Reilly has brought to the market what is described as a handsome four-bed family home, set on an elevated site, accessed via electronic security gates, with manicured lawns and hedges and a south westerly aspect. Asking €550,000, the property has been well designed with ample living space while the large garage offers further space. It is rare for houses to come to the market on Donaghmore Lane so early viewing is recommended to avoid disappointment, according to Ed Reilly, on (046) 906 0450.
Park yourself in village life
Kilmessan village is the type of place that you are likely to meet a Tour de France rider or a Grand National winning-jockey pottering about or enjoying the local eateries or hostelries (now that some have re-opened!).
Central to the towns of Trim, Navan and Dunshaughlin, but slightly off the beaten track in the shadow of the Hill of Tara, it is a busy little spot with a great community spirit, evidenced in recent weeks by the opening of a new walking track for all at the GAA grounds.
A new influx of residents have been attracted to Kilmessan by Bective Lodge, a development built circa 15 years ago between the Station House Hotel and the village, and where 21 Bective Park is now on the market, asking €230,000 with Felicity Felicity Fox Estate Agents (01 633 4431).
Overlooking a large green space with views over the green fields which slope up to Tara, this property has the best of both worlds.
A feeling of a country space but within a village setting with lots of amenities including a primary school, two local shops, a renowned butchers, a hotel, two bars, a restaurant and a regular bus service to Dublin (Bus Éireann 109B). The pretty village of Kilmessan has also won numerous tidy town awards thanks to the dedication of the community in keeping the village so beautiful.
The end of terrace house has been a family home and is well cared for and benefits from extra fitted storage and a newly tiled en-suite.
The aspect of the back garden makes it a sun trap with its south west orientation. The cul de sac around the green has a mix of young families and retired couples making it an ideal first time buyer home or a downsizing residence.
Accommodation comprises entrance hallway, livingroom with double doors through to kitchen / diningroom with an extra fitted pantry unit, and double patio doors to rear.
There are three tastefully decorated bedrooms (one en-suite) and a landing with Stira stairs to the attic. Fitted wardrobes are a feature and there is a family bathroom.
