SITUATED A 40-MINUTE drive from Dublin city centre, this five-bed Co Meath home is a haven of natural light thanks to its clever design.

Throughout the house, double-glazed Scandinavian windows and French doors all open onto a half-acre of patio and landscaped gardens. Inside, this property offers 4,000 sq ft of space, making it the perfect home for a growing family.

Downstairs, a wraparound entrance hall leads into a large family or entertaining room on one side, and two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms on the other.

One of the bedrooms leads onto a study with its own door access, meaning there’s potential to use the rooms as private accommodation for an au pair or guest.

Moving into the the heart of the home, an expansive open-plan kitchen, dining, living area covers the entire eastern side of the house, but its L-shape means the room’s separate sections each feel secluded in their own right.

There’s also a separate family room with masses of natural light thanks to the windows framing three of the four walls.

Upstairs are three more bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom, and a wide L-shaped landing giving the master bedroom a more personal entrance.

It’s this master bedroom that’s the real gem of the upstairs area, thanks to the French doors which open onto a private sunken balcony. The master room also has a dressing room and a large bathroom attached.

Outside, there’s ample parking to the front of the house, and gardens to the rear, with a private lawn, patio and BBQ area with feature lighting for summer entertaining.

While this property definitely has a rural feel thanks to its location just outside Trim, it’s within easy access of Dublin, both by car and by a regular bus service. Nearby are a wide selection of hotels, restaurants, sports clubs and schools, and the Boyne River Walk is a short stroll away.

Friarspark on the Dublin Rd in Trim, Co Meath is on sale with Sherry FitzGerald Royal via for €950,000.
