Additional Information

Goremount House, offers a rare glimpse of local history.  Built in 1814 it was the home of the Gore family and appears in the Ordinance Survey Records of Ireland and is described there as "a neat 2-storey house prettily situated in the midst of some planting in the townland of Ballymacricket, a quarter mile south of the village of Glenavy".

Goremount House truly can be described as a "gentlemans residence", and is set along a sweeping driveway with paddocks on each side. At the end of the driveway is the main house, an annex, a leisure annex, an enclosed rear courtyard with an extensive range of stone outbuildings and approximately 6.5 acres of agricultural lands.

It is a home that offers spacious living accommodation with many lovely features such as the original cornicing, deep reveal windows with original shutters and 3m high ceilings to the formal reception rooms. The present owners have lived here many years and Goremount House has been a much loved family home and over the years they have added to the original house by fitting the first "Smallbone" fitted kitchen in Northern Ireland and by creating a leisure annex.

It is well located just off the main A26/ Airport Road and offers easy commuting to Belfast International Airport which is only a 15 minute drive away, and to the M1 East/ West motorway junction at Moira which allows easy travelling to most parts of the Province.

This is a home that wil fire the imagination in many purchasers, it is home that has the potential to suit many purposes from those who work from home with broadband available to facilitate home working to those with equestrian interests.
