This delightful country residence combines the charm of a traditional Georgian farmhouse with a breath-taking contemporary extension to the rear to create a one-of-a-kind property. Situated within the exquisite landscaped grounds, the listed thatched cottage is connected to its complementary oak and glass sunroom by two glazed links around a central courtyard. The original house is Grade B1 listed in C.E. Brett's Buildings of County Antrim and is believed to date back to the early 1700. Since the extensive 2011 extension and renovations, which included re-thatching and lime rendering, the property has been featured on RTE Home of the Year and published in various home and design magazines.
The property briefly comprises five well proportioned bedrooms plus a dressing room/nursery or study, three reception rooms, two bathrooms and a downstairs WC.
The location offers the peace and solitude of the country-side, including superb panoramic views over Lough Neagh and surrounding countryside. Yet it is only 1mile from the A26, placing it within short commuting distance of the M1 and Moira train station (both 6 miles), Belfast International Airport (11 miles) and Belfast (16 miles). An ideal home for a young family, anyone wishing to escape the city for a quieter life, or even as a unique investment for short-term rentals in Northern Ireland's fast-growing tourist industry. Properties with this much character are few and far between.
