WE MAY BE able to cast a wider net when it comes to where we can live nowadays, but some of us still want to keep that connection to the capital. There are a lot of plusses to being close to Dublin city, be it for an easy trip to the office, an important meeting or a social or cultural event that we just can’t miss.
Co Meath has long been seen as a commuter-friendly option, but if a quieter, more tranquil village life with a sense of community is what you crave, then check out 2 De Verdon Place, a large, detached four-bed home in Robinstown.
On the market for €550,000, the pastel pink front door gives this home instant kerb appeal. Behind the door is a thoughtfully designed and well-laid-out interior that isn’t short on space.
For anyone who is set to work remotely for the foreseeable, this 240 m² house has the luxury of two home offices, so uninterrupted work in a dedicated space is guaranteed.
The kitchen is classic in design. Painted in an easy-to-work-with cream, it has plenty of storage, hardy granite counters, and integrated appliances that fit seamlessly into the space. There is also the benefit of side access right into the kitchen, which is sure to make any future upgrading much easier.
Many of the rooms, like the large lounge, have double aspects that soak these areas in natural light. The more formal of the two living rooms, it has an eye-catching white fireplace with a granite hearth. And, although the house was built in the 2000s, there are nods to classic period architecture, from the central light fixture to the ceiling coving.
The kitchen leads to an inviting sunroom that has direct access to the pretty patio and garden. Wooden floors, a vaulted wooden ceiling and a stove make this room cosy for the winter yet bright and breezy for the summer.
An elegant and spacious landing upstairs connects to each of the four bedrooms – the main bedroom has a painted wooden floor, built-in wardrobes and a small walk-in closet along with an en suite bathroom.
The remaining three bedrooms all share similar painted wooden floors and one of them also as an en suite bathroom. A family bathroom that has a shower and a large jacuzzi bath serves the other two bedrooms.
Currently used as another home office, the attic space is a versatile room that’s well-lit thanks to two velux windows. If one home office will do you, this would make a for a great guest bedroom or a den for the kids.
One of 28 detached houses all similar in structure and layout, 2 De Verdon place is located in the Meath village of Robinstown, which is 7km from both Trim and Navan, leaving multiple options for the commute. Access to the M3 via Bective means Dublin is less than an hour’s drive away.
The village itself has a primary school, which is sure to attract young families – particularly if parents now have the option to be more flexible when it comes to where they work.
