This property fronts a country / local road, the L5507, being situated less than 3km off the R156 and 4km from Scoil Mhuire National School at Raharney with Columba College Secondary School being a further 3km at nearby Killucan. Twenty minutes or so by car takes you to the much coveted heritage town of Trim with Mullingar which provides for even further excellent shopping being a similar drive. 2.8km off R156 (essentially the Dunboyne/Summerhill/Mullingar route) 4km Raharney (Scoil Mhuire National School) 7km equidistant Ballivor and Killucan (Columba College Secondary School) 13km Kinnegad (M4 & M6 adjacent) 18km Athboy 22km equidistant Trim and Mullingar (excellent shopping facilities in both centres, hospital in latter) 35km Navan (M3 adjacent) Ballivor and the greater area is a popular commuter location within easy reach of Dublin and other principal towns such as Trim, Navan and Maynooth.

The village of Ballivor with its country charm has a strong community spirit with an active neighbourhood watch. It supports a supermarket, post office, pharmacy, craft butcher, cafe, community centre and a number of convenience stores amongst a greater range of facilities. Parent/baby mornings, scouts, drama, dance, karate and lots more are provided for here. Importantly there is a state-of-the-art primary school located in the village as well as pre-school, creche and after school facilities. A fabulous new playground has recently opened. Leisure pursuits are in abundance in the area, there being numerous clubs and sporting associations locally which cater for football, hurling, badminton, tennis, athletics, fishing, hunting and shooting but to mention a few.

There are also a number of golf courses nearby while both the River Deel and the Royal Canal, being only a couple of minutes drive, provide for various activities for water enthusiasts as well as waterside walks. A bus service from Ballivor village is provided for post primary schools at the nearby towns of Athboy and Trim which support further excellent retail, hospitality with hotels and lively pubs and recreational facilities including an Aura swimming pool at Trim. The county towns of Navan and Mullingar provide hospitals should the need arise and are both within thirty minutes or so drive. With access to the M3, M4, M6, N51 and N52 routes convenient, the area is popular with Dublin commuters and those who transverse the country for work. Employees from the ICT, E-commerce and pharma sectors based around Blanchardstown / Damastown as well as ICTs based around Leixlip often choose Ballivor as a place to call home, citing lifestyle, ease of commuting and affordability as the rational for their choice. Such companies include giants like Synopsys, IBM, PayPal, Symantec, Ebay, Paypal, Bristol Myers-Squibb, Alexion, Helsinn Birex, Hewlett-Packard and Intel along with recent additions including the MSD facility near Dunboyne and Facebooks data centre at Clonee. For those into retail or perhaps after some retail therapy, both the Blanchardstown and Liffey Valley shopping centres are within some forty minutes or so drive.

Extending to 0.6 of an acre or thereabouts, the property is secured from the road by a stone built wall and piers fitted with custom iron gates. The landscaped site is otherwise enclosed by hedgerow and fence. A bitumen type surfaced driveway flanked by garden principally laid in lawn and decorated with a variety of flowers, trees and shrubs leads to the residence. This driveway which opens into a large circulation and parking space sweeps by the front of the residence which gives access to the rear garden. Along with large patio area, the rear garden is similarly landscaped and importantly has a domestic workshop (c. 800 sq. feet) with barbeque area / pizza oven. The rear garden is not overlooked and is enclosed by hedge and with green land behind, it is little wonder the sound of the birds chorus is so intense here. As well as being ideal for barbeque or alfresco dining, ones time could be whiled away here relaxing in this tranquil area. Ample space for a polytunnel too.
