Full Description

The house is prominent in the middle of the lands,  on the crest of the hill, offering incredible views over the surrounding countryside, with views stretching to Lough Neagh.

The house is accessed from a beech tree lined avenue, leading from the Gilford Road. The avenue splits in two at the top offering a route to the impressive turning circle and ornate pond at the front of the house with the other lane leading to a walled courtyard at the rear of the property.

The house, leisure wing and garages form a ‘U’ shape around the walled courtyard at the rear of the house.

The front section of the main house was constructed in the 19th Century and is particularly grandiose with tall sash windows, decorative architecture and numerous original features. The rear part of the house is more modern in design with PVC double glazing.

The ground floor of the main house consists of an impressive porch and entrance hallway, leading to two large reception rooms, the beautiful staircase and study. The house retains some original features however requires extensive refurbishment. At first floor level of the main house, the staircase leads onto a long, wide hallway with galleried windows at the front of the house, overlooking the countryside. There are four bedrooms on this level, with one en-suite and one main bathroom. Leading off the main hall, there are two steps down to the modern extension, where there are three further bedrooms and a  bathroom.

The more modern, rear extension to the house contains the kitchen / dining room, utility room and pantry. This section of the house benefits from windows on all external walls, facing onto the courtyard. The kitchen / dining room leads onto a full glass conservatory which leads to the leisure wing.

The leisure wing is of modern construction and benefits from a swimming pool, sauna and changing rooms on ground floor, with a large viewing gallery/ snooker room at first floor level.

Externally, to the rear of the house, two large garages and stores open onto the courtyard. Outside the walled courtyard, there is a large store with lean-to opening out into the rear field.

A garden sits to the right hand side of the house and is lined with mature trees. A picturesque, private walled garden is situated to the left of the house.
