IF YOU’RE LOOKING for a property that oozes country charm while also being equipped for modern life, Knockavery Lodge could be the one for you. 

Located in Athboy, Co Meath, the original stone cottage at Knockavery Lodge was built in 1920, with two extensions expanding the space to a total of 2,098 sq ft. Because of this, the property boasts much of its original charm while still being suited to modern family life.

The four-bedroom home features two entrance halls, one of which links to the original cottage. Sash windows and a stone wall from the original cottage make a lasting first impression here, as well as a hardwood stable door, ceramic tiled floor and a cast iron radiator.

From here, there’s access to the dining room. A cast iron stove with a slate hearth, slate floor and original timber ceiling make this a cosy space to entertain, while the separate kitchen (which features plenty of natural light) means guests will be none the wiser if dinner preparations go askew.

The sitting room, which features double doors leading to the patio, boasts high ceilings, hardwood oak flooring and a cast iron fireplace, making it perfectly-suited for use year-round. To the rear of the property is the light-filled conservatory, with double doors also opening from here to the rear garden.

The four bedrooms are spread throughout the home, with fitted wardrobes in the master bedroom. Two of the bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms. A utility room and family bathroom complete the accommodation. Outside, a block-built shed provides additional storage, while the paved patio areas to the rear are perfectly suited to al fresco dining.
