Georgian house on 18 acres in Duleek under offer
A once-grand Georgian house on 18 acres in the centre of Duleek, Co Meath, is rumoured to be under offer at €750,000 through agent Robt B Daly.Five of the 18 acres are zoned residential, 2.7 as tourism, 8.8 as high amenity and the rest as open space.
The agent suggests the property would suit a multiplicity of uses – subject to securing planning permission – such as residential, a tourism project, convalescent home, retirement homes, or hotel.
Duleek House, which is listed, has a limestone-fronted facade which was added in about 1750 to a house probably half a century older.
The interior featured an entrance hall with three arched openings giving access to the staircase and reception rooms with neo-classical plasterwork.
The house is in a dilapidated state but has a footprint of 210sq m (2,260sq ft) which over four floors would give 840sq m (9,040sq ft) of space.
There is also a courtyard with a range of outbuildings.
Duleek is about 25 miles north of Dublin city and airport. The journey to the capital along the M2 takes about an hour while Drogheda, about a 15-minute drive away, has a rail connection to Dublin.
