The Bolies, Kells

€200,000 BER G 3 Bed Detached 0m2



A fantastically located c. 4.5 acre (SM) residential holding with derelict cottage sited thereon, set among prime residential properties and farmland. Fronting a lane, with its lovely rural feel, this property is conveniently situated less than 2km from the heritage town of Kells; 500 metres, yes that`s correct 500 metres, from the M3 (Kells North Junction), where it meets with the N3; and some 130 metres from the N52. In terms of location, they don`t come better than this.

Given that there is a derelict residence sited on this holding, one could potentially remodel and extend, availing of the various housing support grants available at present, or alternatively seek permission for a replacement dwelling. Either way, this is a unique opportunity for those seeking to develop and customise their very own dream home.

Those requiring space will be well enamoured by this property, given its generous site size of c. 4.5 acres (SM) or thereabouts laid out in a single grassland block. Moreover, it presents a unique opportunity for those in search of the good life being ideal for the establishment of a wholesome healthy outdoorsy small holding, whatever form that may take, equestrian or otherwise. Chickens, goats, sheep, pigs, cows and donkeys could be on the cards alongside a vegetable garden and a polytunnel too, who knows?

Viewing is recommended.

This property is exceptionally well located some 150 metres off the N52, only 500 metres from the M3, 2km from Kells and some 15 minutes or so drive from Navan. How convenient is that?
