Description

A magnificent late Georgian residence in a magical setting bound by the River Nanny with outstanding views of Bellewstown Hill and the surrounding parkland

Beamond House is an exceptional two storey over basement, 5 bay late Georgian early Regency

residence c.1830. Nestled in a majestic parkland and river setting with a spectacular view looking south to Bellewstown Hill. The residence is approached up a sweeping tree lined drive which arrives to the front of a delightful property set prettily amidstwonderful specimen trees, sheltered patio area and glorious mature gardens, which

border a wide stretch of the River Nanny.

The main house is in excellent condition with well laid out, bright and spacious accommodation which has been refurbished in keeping with the history and heritage of this period property by the current owners and today has excellent formal reception rooms and beautiful entertaining rooms coupled with being a comfortable family home. It retains many of the original period features including recessed sash windows and shutters, Georgian mouldings and plasterwork, joinery, ornate corniced ceiling, period fireplaces and original doors and floors. One enters the house through a Doric portico to an impressive main hall. Off this is

an elegant Drawing Room leading to a fantastic bow shaped Dining Room with full length windows looking out across the rolling lawns to the River Nanny. To the right of the Hall is the Morning Room and Sitting Room and to the side is a very comfortable family room with wood burning stove. The cosy country Kitchen has hand made units

and an oil fired Aga. There is a Scullery and Cloakroom off the Kitchen

On the first floor are five principal bedrooms again with lovely views and three bathrooms with cast iron baths and showers.

The Garden Level downstairs has recently been extensively renovated to the highest level and has its own private access through a restored tunnel and to a sheltered terrace and gardens. The exposed stone and brick walls along with the wainscoting give a very warm and sophisticated feel. The large kitchen cum living room is a

delightful room to relax in or to host guests. The Garden Level also has 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms and a Utility Room. The garden rooms are completed fitted out with all mod cons and could be used for holiday accommodation, family, grandparents or staff.

Outside the property has two large courtyards with a selection of equestrian and agricultural outbuildings including tack shed, 5 bay barn, 8 stables in the inner yard. The outer courtyard has a 3 bay barn, 5 pony stalls, 3 stables and various stone outbuildings. There is the added benefit of a sheltered sand arena. The courtyards have their own separate road entrance.

Beamond House is surrounded by 31 acres of excellent quality parkland dotted throughout with magnificent specimen trees. The River Nanny meanders through the grounds at the bottom of the garden having its own mill race which up to 20 years ago was generating hydro electricity for the household with a water wheel turbine. Revamping the turbine could be a project for the new owners. All this makes Beamond House a unique property and a very exceptional family home.

Beamond House is located in the beautiful 'royal county' of Meath close to the quaint village of Bellewstown with a pub, church, school and commonage. Just 15 minutes from the large town of Drogheda which has a large array of shopping, restaurants and amenities. A short drive to the east brings you to miles of sandy beaches of Laytown and Bettystown. Beamond House is very

accessible to the M1 motorway which leaves the property in a prime area for the short travel to Dublin Airport (25 minutes) and Dublin city (40 minutes). There is a very good train and bus service approximately 10 minutes away.

This area in Co Meath is surrounded by lush green countryside with some of the best land in the country.
