The property is adjacent to the now World famous ‘Dark Hedges’ attraction, situated close to the village of Stranocum about 9 miles from Ballymoney off the A26 and a similar distance to the popular coastal town of Ballycastle. The complex is also within the Causeway / Antrim Coast and Glens Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty set on the edge of the Lower Bann Valley.
The complex available for purchase at this time comprises :–
Gracehill Manor House which was built c.1775 is a Georgian listed property partially refurbished to provide luxury hotel accommodation, café and gift shop. Ideal for a Boutique Hotel. Extensive parklands surround the house including the initial elements of a tourist experience in the form of a feature tourist woodland path to the Hedges attraction.
Gracehill Golf Club incorporating the Bell Tower Licenced restaurant and Club House, The Pantry, Former Walled Garden and the golf course itself. The 18 hole Championship course is considered one of the top golf courses in the country. There are few other courses in the province which offer such a range of terrain including strategically placed woodland and water hazards including 5 lakes. Golf Club membership is on a monthly basis at present. The licenced restaurant / Café also provides external seating which is very useful in the current trading environment.
Extensive Woodlands and a Building Site for a Dwelling House lie beyond and to the side of the Golf Course. Purchasers should make their own investigations as to the status of the historically approved site.
There is obvious potential for further investment to finalise the ongoing works and enhance visitor experience, aiming to increase dwell time and income streams at the Gracehill attraction, steering the direction of expenditure to tie in with any purchaser’s personalised plans, subject to planning.
The lands extend to a total of c. 220.0 Acres (c. 89.03 Hectares) – see attached brochure for further details.
