Seclusion, Nature, Tranquillity!
Offering For Sale this absolutely stunning, extended stone cottage to the open market. Very rarely does an opportunity arise to purchase a property of such a high calibre. "Ash Cottage" represents the chance to buy a property that not only delivers large enough accommodation for a growing family, but also provides a once in a lifetime situation to own your own mini nature reserve.
The property is accessed via a private concrete lane flanked by trees, hedging and fencing. This leads onto the dwelling and extensive stone drive with lots of parking for all the family.
The property rests on the edge of it's own C.1.5 acre lake, complete with it's very own island. Bordering the lake are both formal and informal woodland gardens laid out in extensive lawn area's, grass path's surrounding the lake, an apple and pear orchard and vast range of native trees and foliage. Additionally there is a detached matching garage.
As you can imagine there are phenomenal vista's from the dwelling over the lake, and of particular note from the family entertainment room, which could also be used as a home office to work from.
All in all 42 Ballyblack Road is a property like no other, and as agents we strongly advise arranging a viewing appraisal immediately, to help avoid disappointment.
