‘The Brae’, 104 Melmount Road

Designed by William Williamson, a notable and accomplished architect of his time and built by J Ballantine Ltd in 1903, this classically elegant property has undergone some renovation since its construction, namely the reconfiguration of the former servants’ quarters and stable into a 3 bedroom annex. The ‘Rosemary’ clay tiled roof, decorative red brick chimneystacks with clay pots and painted door provide an impressive and striking façade and welcome you inside this family home which holds significant local historic interest.

Many of the original features of the ‘Arts and Crafts’ Movement (1880-1910) have been lovingly retained by the current owners, for example its original doors and hinges, impressive staircase and panelling, cornicing, picture rails, original fireplaces and high ceilings.

The property is set within an extensive wooded demesne (many trees are also listed) which includes lawns, an extensive range of mature shrubs and flowering bushes and is accessed via a gravelled driveway leading to a gravelled forecourt. To the side and rear there is a covered veranda, patio area and lawn offering a tranquil haven where you can relax and appreciate the beautiful countryside beyond.

SITUATION

This country residence is situated in this unspoilt rural location on the outskirts of the village of Sion Mills close to its local amenities. More extensive shopping, educational and leisure amenities are available in Strabane (2.5 miles) and Omagh (16.5 miles). The village has an active community with churches, primary school, post office, filling station and convenience stores and has an Angling and Cricket Club. The proximity to the River Mourne offers additional opportunity for other outdoor pursuits.
