RIVERSTOWN HOUSE ON c. 5.74 ACRES OR c. 27.3 ACRES.
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.
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.
