For those who appreciate the extraordinary, DNG Royal County are delighted to present this truly stunning and unique property to the open market.
Prepare to be amazed from the outset by this enchanting original Water Tower, which was part of the Old Railway Station and has been sympathetically restored to an extremely high standard throughout.
Dating back to 1862, the Athboy Railway Station ran from Athboy to Dublin and was in operation for almost 100 years. The beautiful stone buildings fell into disuse, but have recently been sympathetically restored and renovated, and now form an elegant sight in a superb setting. Every detail has been meticulously reinstated, from the reclaimed cast iron radiators to the antique brass electrical fittings.
Not only is this home truly unique, but it is also situated in the grounds of the old railway station amid a number of restored buildings including the old engine house at the entrance to the development, the “Yellowford” river meanders alongside the development providing a peaceful backdrop for the residents. Adjacent to the dwelling is Athboy’s “Fair Green” park, a leafy park surrounded by mature trees and stonewalls, perfect for those afternoon strolls.
This stunning property is located within easy strolling distance from Athboy Town Centre, which boasts a wealth of shops, cafes, restaurants and amenities as well as excellent recreational activities. The nearby towns of Trim and Navan provide further amenities and facilities. “The Water Tower” is also convenient for commuters as it is located on the Trim Road, where Bus Eireann provide a well established bus route to and from Dublin, it is also easily accessible to Junction 9 off the M3 Motorway giving direct access to Blanchardstown, M50 and Dublin City Centre.
