3 Bed Cottage 62 m² / 667 ft²


Unique opportunity to acquire a Parnell cottage located in the heart of the Boyne valley in one of the most historical areas of the north east. Just a stones throw from the the UNESCO world heritage monuments of Newgrange and Dowth, property available in the area is becoming extremely rare. The house itself is a typical Parnell style cottage with cut stone walls and natural slate roof. The property requires upgrade and modernization but offers a once in a life time chance to restore a historical piece of Irelands rural heritage. Sitting on a c.0.83 acre plot along a quiet lane helps add to the properties charm.
Charles Stewart Parnell introduced a Private Members Bill which became the Labourers (Ireland) Act, 1883, the foundation stone of the rural housing code. The Act of 1883 passed the initiative to local ratepayers to the rural sanitary authority (then the Board of Guardians) to undertake a scheme of cottage building. Between 1883 and 1920 some 42,000 cottages were built under the Labourers Act.
