Built around 1750, Bellewstown House is a south facing Georgian property nestled in the beautiful countryside of County Meath. The property had many owners throughout the years including The Langan family going right back to the 19th century where they had extensive lands. There is a soft traditional atmosphere from the moment you enter the gates and drive through the manicured garden and grounds. The house has all the elements of a country home with a superb entrance hall and feature staircase catching the eye. The elegant drawing room, with its south facing aspect and a marble fireplace, is a comfortable room in which to relax. Across the hall is a spacious formal dining room with marble fireplace and display units. To the rear of the residence is a dual aspect family room, perfect for the winter months. The kitchen is your quintessential country kitchen with quarry tiled floors and AGA. From here there is access to the side of the west facing garden and patio area, excellent for entertaining and a BBQ area in the summer months. The ground floor is complete with a WC. At first floor level, there are 4 large bedrooms; the master is fully carpeted with built in wardrobes and spectacular views of the countryside to the front, complete with large en suite with bath, sink and WC. Across the landing is another spacious bedroom. There are two further bedrooms to the rear and a family bathroom completing the 1st floor. The second floor has two rooms for a number of uses including further bedrooms, offices or children’s playrooms and are finished with original pine flooring. GARDENS AND GROUNDS In total there are approx. 6 acres of lands. To the rear of the house there are 5 large loose boxes that could be easily brought back to their former glory.
