This is an incredibly rare opportunity to purchase what is arguably one of the most architecturally interesting properties in Co. Antrim comprising a bespoke designed four bedroom detached house with four plus reception rooms extending to 3,335sq.ft. with provision left for a potential attic conversion if required. Unseen from the roadside ensuring the maximum amount of privacy, the property is approached through ornate, classically styled electric gates and a sweeping tree lined avenue, with the first glimpse of this stunning property reserved until going over a low hill and rounding a slight bend making the drama of the first sighting all the more impressive. With the "suspended" turret and mix of stonework and render reminiscent of a Scottish baronial hall this substantial property nestles comfortably into it's mature setting as if it has been there for centuries. The current owner has painstakingly curated a mixture of materials and style to create the impression of an old stone cottage that has been substantially renovated and extended to create what is a modern home with a very traditional aesthetic.
In addition to the main property, sitting on approx. 1.2 acres, the avenue passes by to a well screened, large fully stoned yard area of circa. half an acre which includes a substantial cavity wall portal framed commercial shed in two sections, the largest of which measures an impressive 79'5 x 34' with lorry height electrically operated roller shutter door and two half lofts at either end comprising additional storage and office space with kitchen area and W/C. The adjoining section measures 34'2 x 21'2 and incorporates two large stables with a hay loft over and plenty of space for a horse box or lorry.
The combination of house, yard, shed and stables makes this an ideal opportunity for anyone wishing to run a business from home (subject to necessary approvals) or with an equestrian interest and who may be interested in just over 7 acres of additional lands
