Description

This impressive detached country residence offers flexible family accommodation nestled amongst mature landscaped gardens extending to approximately 2 ½ acres (plus c. 5.2 acres of woodland) providing privacy, shelter, charm, extensive views over the surrounding areas and conveniently located within a few minutes drive from Ballymoney town centre.

The original farmhouse dates to the late 1700s. Extensive improvements and a major extension in the seventies provide this charming, unique residence today complimented by the mature gardens and outbuildings with optional woodland and duck pond.

Accommodation today offers a mix of 6 bedrooms (3 ensuite) and 5 reception rooms including a generously proportioned farmhouse kitchen, formal dining room with double doors to a landscaped patio/sun terrace, family room (situated in the original farmhouse), formal lounge and sun room which both enjoy an open aspect over the courtyard area with views to the west over the surrounding countryside and hills. This area of the property now benefits from a recently installed additional kitchen – so an ideal granny flat or annex.

The property is approached via a tree-lined avenue leading to a generously sized car parking area and the original stone built farm building which has been preserved to include the Threshing Barn, byre and stable with hay/corn loft above.  This block may have some development potential (subject to planning permission).

As such it is without hesitation that we recommend inspection to fully appreciate this delightful period residence, its ambience and location with many possibilities for extended family living or even Air BnB (subject to the necessary approvals).
