Garryfine, Dublin Road, Drogheda, Co Louth €1.25m
rogheda is screaming to be classified as a city, and no wonder. The population of the city of South Co Louth has doubled in a generation. In 1990, not much more than 23,000 people lived there. The population is now estimated at over 46,000 making Drogheda officially the largest city in Ireland.
Garryfine was built on the outskirts of town near the train station in 1990, looking back over open fields at the time. New housing estates were later built behind it in response to urgent demand for housing.
Although more or less part of a new suburb, Garryfine has retained some of its ‘manor house’ vibe.
It is set on 0.34 acres and set further back from the road than the surrounding homes, and its grounds are sheltered by mature trees. It’s also quite a bit larger than its neighbors, having expanded in 2011 to 3,767 square feet over two stories, with a raised front entrance dominated by an overhead archway. This archway illuminates the first floor landing, and arranged more or less symmetrically around it are five bedrooms (one with en-suite bathroom and walk-in closet) and a bathroom.
Down an extravagant sweeping staircase, the main reception rooms can all be opened up to create a party circle of sorts. A drawing room and dining room are located on either side of the entrance hall whilst to the rear is an open plan kitchen, dining room and family room with a small cozy adjoining room. There is also an office and attached garage.
From here it is around a kilometer to the center of Drogheda and the River Boyne and around a 3 minute walk to the train station. Dublin Airport is half an hour’s drive away. Garryfine is for sale for €1.25m through Shane Black Property Advisors (041) 981 0848.
