WORLD TRAVEL WORKED wonders for the designers of Roxbury House, a modern home just a four minute drive from the Louth village of Termonfeckin. The five-bed home was constructed in the style of an American villa, and feels more Los Angeles than Louth.

Built in 2001 on four acres of private land with its own indoor pool, Roxbury is now on the market for €1,500,000. While the Irish landscape might not be Hollywood-ready, Roxbury House definitely manages to capture that California feeling inside its walls.

Upon entering, you’re greeted by a large hallway that leads to a living area with double-height ceilings and a bespoke fireplace.

A nod to elegant houses across the pond, the wraparound staircase brings you to a landing overlooking the social areas of the home below.

Certainly the main hub of the home, a bright open dining area and the expansive kitchen is an inviting space that encourages entertaining. The living room off the open plan space even leads to an impressive wine cellar, which should surely get the party started.

A quartz-topped island unit, an integrated TV unit and Neff appliances, complete the picture.

From here, double doors lead out to the surrounding terraces and gardens. 

An indoor heated swimming pool and pool house ensures early morning or late night dips are always an option, regardless of Irish weather. The exposed wooden beams and floor-to-ceiling window panels add to the luxury. Side doors slide open to reveal a spacious outdoor living area.

Upstairs at Roxbury House, three of the four double bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and no shortage of wardrobe space. The master suite benefits from a roomy marble bathroom that has a separate bath, a shower unit and his ‘n’ hers sinks.

Leading off the landing is also the plant room; a space that houses the controls of not just the security system, but the in-house entertainment system, which reaches every corner of the house.

Wander around the expansive grounds surrounding this home and you’ll see that Roxbury comprises of three buildings – the main residence and a separate outbuilding, plus a garage that can house up to six cars. The outbuilding makes for the perfect games room, home cinema or exercise studio; in fact, anything the new home owners decide on.
