Welcome to Horath Cross on which this quaint characterful property is set with the backdrop of lush green pasture lands. Interestingly, this property was once home to Horath School and Schoolmaster’s House. Set in the unspoilt rolling countryside of North Meath, this unique residential property sits on a relatively compact site and essentially comprises a detached country cottage with useful adjoining out-houses. The dwelling itself requires an overhaul vis-à-vis renovation and refurbishment in order to increase the accommodation to a level of comfort generally expected nowadays. The dwelling briefly comprises two-bedrooms along with the other typical accommodation for a house of its time and style including front hall, living room, kitchen, scullery and bathroom. Adjoining the L-shaped residence, two useful adjoining out-buildings provide for a U-shape arrangement of buildings on the site.

The site is mainly delineated by hedging, shrubs and trees and otherwise a masonry wall along the roadside with independent piered and gated vehicular and pedestrian entrances. A concrete driveway provides valuable surfaced car parking. The site is otherwise generally laid under easily managed lawn.

This is an affordable residential proposition which could likely make a wonderful home for first time buyers, those seeking to escape to the country, and indeed, those seeking to downsize for whatever reason. An early viewing is recommended by selling agent, Chris Smith, of Quillsen Estate Agents

Positioned abutting Horath Cross Roads, this rural property is located some 8.5km equi-distant from the urban centres of Kells and Nobber with the county town of Navan being some 22km distant. Conveniently, connection with the M3 motorway is some 10.5km distant. Closer by is the picturesque multi award-winning village of Moynalty on the Borora River at 4km, as well as Carlanstown at 4.5km. Both Moynalty and Carlanstown offer national schools, as does Kilbeg (even closer at 2.3km). These centres along with the surrounding hinterland provide for a range of local facilities, amenities and pursuits including educational, sporting, recreational, retail and ecclesiastical. Kells is one of the premier satellite locations close to Dublin which is highly accessible with the M3 motorway adjacent. It offers a host of retail, leisure, educational and healthcare facilities amongst others. There are many outdoor activities nearby including two award-winning 18 hole golf courses at Headfort, tennis club, swimming pools, equestrian centres, Causey Farm and the soon to be completed Navan to Kingsscourt Greenway amongst others.
