This is an incredibly rare opportunity to purchase a beautifully presented and fully re-furbished, B1 listed "Gentleman's Residence" built in the early 1800's and described by the Ulster Architectural Society as a "fine five-bay Georgian style farmhouse with stone quoins and surrounds to the windows" and makes particular reference to the "...pleasant fanlighted door" gracing the front elevation. It's worth noting that the current owners carried out a substantial renovation project in 1998 which has thankfully stayed true to the character of the original style and in doing so ensured that any future owners should have the minimum amount of maintenance and upkeep..
Located on the edge of Antrim town in a rural but very accessible area, the property occupies a generous site extending to circa 2.5 acres complimented by an extensive range of agricultural and stone outbuildings that could be used for a multitude of uses (subject to necessary approvals) and in particular an attached wing to the rear of the property, helping to form a pleasant courtyard, that would be ideally suited to holiday accommodation, home office, granny annex or entertainment suite for those in need of self contained additional space. The adjoining lands comprise formal gardens, large greenhouse and sheltered enclosure with beautiful stone wall creating the perfect environment for the former market garden and nursery business that was successfully run by the owner up until their recent retirement. The substantial on-site tarmac car-parking facility makes this an ideal opportunity for anyone wishing to run a business from this superb location close to Antrim Area Hospital and the M2 motorway.
Only on full internal and external inspection can one begin to appreciate the quality of this superb period dwelling and recognize the potential opportunities that it presents. Early viewing very strongly recommended.
