Navan is the county town and administrative capital of County Meath as well as being the fifth largest town in Ireland. Navan has seen unpresented growth in recent years with many of the most high-profile development companies building in the area due to its popularity with Dublin City commuters and access to the M3 Motorway linking Dublin and Cavan.
Navan benefits from excellent shopping and recreational amenities as well as first-rate transport services linking the town with the rest of the county and Dublin City. The town has several quality hotels, restaurants, boutique shops and many retail parks as well as the Navan Shopping Centre.
Belmont House is located on the south side of the town adjacent to the River Boyne and just off the R147 leading to Academy Street. The immediate area comprises a mixture of retail, development land (currently in agricultural use), residential apartment blocks and lower density town centre housing.
Belmont House is believed to date back to 1825. It is a detached five-bay, two storey over basement house, which is set within private grounds just a few minutes' walk to Navan Town Centre. The property has only changed hands once in its 195-year history, when Mr John Spicer acquired the mansion and surrounding demesne from Mr J Goggan. The house has remained under the ownership of the Spicer family since then.
Belmont House is substantial (approximately 5,603 sq ft) and the main rooms are light filled, retain many period features and some modern touches including the impressive kitchen. The layout of the house is traditional, suiting a modern family or indeed someone who wants to use the property for a commercial purpose.
The property would benefit from some renovation but will suit a wide range of uses due to its size, condition, acreage, private location and current zoning.
Please refer to the floorplans for a full list of the accommodation.
The property sits on about 2 hectares / 5 acres of lawn, mature hedging and impressive woodland and is approached through pillared gates along a fenced driveway. There is also a tarmacked tennis court to the east of the site.
Outbuildings on site include a swimming pool building with kitchen area, changing room, storage room and a red brick former stable block to the rear of the house.
The farmyard, accessed from the main avenue, is in a poor state of repair but there is plenty of scope for renovation. The derelict buildings would suit a wide range of uses including a home offices or further accommodation, subject to the necessary planning permission.
