This distinctive Edwardian family home can only be described as one of the most impressive properties in the town of Ballymoney and occupies a choice elevated setting of approximately 3/4 of an acre of mature grounds yet is within a few minutes walk of the town centre, schools, churches and all local amenities. Built for owner occupation circa 1902 on the instruction of a local solicitor, (J B Hamilton), the dwelling was designed by architect James Hanna of Coleraine and Belfast and constructed by local builder John Henry of Ballymoney. Two further rooms were added circa 1908 with a further extension in the 1980's keeping with the original Edwardian design to offer spacious 5 bedroom and 3 1/2 reception room family accommodation.
The property enjoys many fine external and internal finishes such as sandstone detailing around some external windows, veranda/sun terraces with spruce pine columns in two locations, an impressive reception hall with attractive wood panelling and mahogany balustrade staircase, original doors and fireplaces, coving and wood panelling in many rooms.
The attention to detail and construction of this southerly facing home are almost unique in todays property market and the true character and ambience of the home can only be fully appreciated on inspection. Another benefit of the property is that it has recently been Northern Ireland Tourist Board approved for bed and breakfast accommodation. The owners are using 4 rooms and have stated that ‘we have been very busy since being approved’. As sole selling agent we therefore recommend an early appointment to appreciate the quality, accommodation and potential business income of this fine period residence.
