Gorteade Cottage is located in County Derry, about 45 minutes from Belfast International Airport. Set in nearly 8 acres of secluded grounds, with mature beech trees and ponds teeming with aquatic life. This is an unusual example of Irish Georgian architecture on a small scale.
The ground floor includes two very handsome reception rooms. Depending on how space was used, there could be three, four or five bedrooms. There are extensive outbuildings, including a traditional stone barn.
According to need these structures can serve as exhibition space, work space or extra living accommodation.
This originally small farm was the boyhood home of one of America's noblest founding fathers: Charles Thomson, who was secretary of Congress from 1774 to 1789 and a confidante of Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin.
This is a most interesting and exciting sale of a property with a history dating back to the 18th century in a beautifully secluded and tranquil setting.
