Marvelously positioned within a mature setting Belper Hall is a modern family home that is well-connected, being just 44km of Dublin city centre and within easy reach of Dublin International airport and many urban centres, including nearby Dunshaughlin and the towns of Trim and Navan that provide good local amenities, including several eateries and pubs and there is a wide choice of both primary and secondary schooling in the area.
Trim is a very popular town with tourists and on the banks of the River Boyne, is in the heart of county Meath and is nicknamed The Royal County' owing to its history as the seat of the High King of Ireland; located at Tara Hill, only 22 km from Navan. The 14th largest county in Ireland and the 9th in terms of population, Meath was formed from the eastern part of the former Kingdom of Mide, but now forms part of the province of Leinster. The archaeological complex of Bruna Boinne is around 5,000 years old and includes the burial sites of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth, in the north-east of the county and are designated a World Heritage Site.
There are many beautiful walks along the River Boyne and indeed the River Blackwater and the area is famous for the The Boyne Way'. The town of Trim itself has a rich history and is famous for Trim Castle. Trim Castle (or King John's Castle) is Ireland's largest Norman castle. It was built in the late 12th century following the Norman invasion of Ireland. Trim and the surrounding lands were granted to Hugh de Lacy, Lord of Meath, and a Norman baron. Richard II of England stayed there before being ousted from power. Once a candidate to be the country's capital, the town occupied a role as one of the outposts of the Pale and, in 1542, sessions of the Irish Parliament were sometimes held here.There is excellent racing nearby in Navan and Fairyhouse, with Leopardstown, Naas, Punchestown and The Curragh within easy driving distance. There is a wide selection of equestrian facilities in the local area, including Pelletstown Riding Centre and the Royal Meath Equestrian centre. Golf enthusiasts are well catered for in the area with Killeen Castle today forming the focal point of a Golf and Country Club, where the Jack Nicklaus designed championship 18-hole course hosted The Solheim Cup in 2011. Carton House and Royal Tara are also a short distance away and there are another 8 golf courses not too far away.

The dining room has a sliding door leading to the patio area that is perfect for the summertime. The kitchen is at the heart of the residence and would be a area for everyday family living. With its pitched roof the room has beautiful views over the garden to the rear and good access to the patio area outside. There is also a breakfast area. To the east of the house there is a room that could again be used as a work at home office or indeed games room. This room has separate access also and is linked to the garage.
