Essentially comprising a simple and quaint country cottage that has been the subject of much renovation of late, this property now requires a new buyer to add their finishing touches and bring it to life once again. Given that it is a predominantly blank canvas, parties can largely choose to layout and complete as they desire given its present stage of renovation. The current configuration suggests a living room, kitchen, inner hall, two bedrooms and a shower room.

While much of the heavy lifting has been completed including the drylining of walls, first fix electrical and the boring of a new well, purchaser’s works will likely include completion of second fix electrical, commissioning of a heating system and fitting of kitchen cabinets amongst other enhancements.

Set in idyllic countryside, fronting the R164 (Kells/ Moynalty Road), the location here at Oakley Park is second to none being situated some 5km from the heritage town of Kells on the Blackwater and some 2.5km from the multiple award-winning tidy-towns postcard village of Moynalty on the Borora. Moynalty becomes a mecca each year for the hosting of their annual steam threshing festival. The N52 (Limerick / Dundalk Road) which routes around Kells is some 3.5km distant and this doubles to provide connection to the M3 motorway after a further 2.5km. The convenience here is amazing, essentially providing for the best of both worlds, the tranquillity of countryside, with all the convenience of village and town facilities, only a few minutes drive away.

Kells, an atmospheric and lively town, offers extensive amenities and facilities to include a wide offering of shopping (featuring many local indigenous outlets and multiples with both SuperValu and Aldi present); recreational; educational with preschools, creches, primary and secondary schools; employment, primary care health centre and other facilities. The heritage town of Kells is a popular tourist hub within the Royal County. It is best known as the site of Kells Abbey, from which the Book of Kells takes its name. Local leisure facilities include two award-winning 18-hole golf courses situated at Headfort, tennis club, swimming pool and equestrian centres along with a range of other sports clubs and their grounds including soccer, rugby, football and hurling but to mention a few. Add to that the newly opened Kells looped walk and cycleway.

With the M3 adjacent and the N52 (Dundalk/Limerick Road) routing by, Kells is one of the premier satellite locations ideal for those commuting to Dublin, and indeed, elsewhere through the provinces.
