An elegant grade B1 listed Georgian stone farmhouse with an excellent range of outbuildings on approximately 1.8 acres.
The three bay, two storey property dates circa 1830. It was formerly owned by the Marquis of Hertford and first noted on the 1832 Ordnance Survey Map. The initial valuation of the property was ten pounds and ten shillings.
The property is steeped in history and was built on the north side of the ruins of Aghalee Old Church, a medieval chapel thought to date from at least Pope Nicolas' taxation of 1306.
The interior is a throwback to a bygone era with a mix of formal rooms and servants quarters. The original entrance door, fan light and sash windows remain in tact.
The grounds extend to approximately 1.8 acres consisting of two paddocks, 1 field with orchard, pretty gardens with an impressive Monkey Puzzle tree and a trickling river which runs through the land. There are an excellent range of outbuildings, stables and stores.
Although in the heart of the countryside the property in only 4.5 miles from M1 access, 14 miles from Belfast International Airport and about 19 miles from Belfast City Centre.
The property requires extensive modernisation, a Condition Report is available for inspection by appointment and cash offers only will be considered.
