Set in the stately grounds of Finnebrogue Demesne, originally extending to over 1000 acres and dating from the early 17th century, this remarkable family residence, set in its own grounds extending to 4.379 acres or thereabouts of mature gardens and paddocks, and bounded by a fine stand on ancient native trees, thought to have been planted by the original Percival Maxwell family.
The residence, probably dating from about 1840, has been sympathetically extended and renovated in 1999 to create an exquisite home, combining the charm and character of the original design with a modern contemporary twist. A spacious apartment provides additional accommodation for a family member, which has been finished to an equally high standard and would, if desired, be suitable for a holiday let.
The property is heated with under floor and cast iron radiators, is well insulated and includes three reception rooms, luxury integrated kitchen and laundry room, four bedrooms (three ensuite), study and store.
Externally a compact range of outbuildings including workshop, boiler house and stabling for 2 horses are set into the gardens and grounds which surround the residence. The gardens have evolved over the decades with formal garden terrace and patio adjacent to the residence, overlooking the formal and informal lawns and flowerbeds, with an enclosed fruit and vegetable kitchen garden situated a short distance from the house providing ample space to supply the familys needs.
The residence is situated less than half an hours drive from the edge of Belfast with a fine selection of Primary and Grammar schools in the immediate area, and public transport to many of the top schools in Belfast available.
The property is unique in its design, is impeccably fitted and decorated and for those who enjoy their privacy and the tranquility of the countryside, this is a rare jewel to enjoy.
