Lot 1: The Old School House (About 4.69 acres) This characterful and unique rural property offers an appealing chance for new owners to renovate in their own style in order to create a family home. The main property is in need of a full renovation, and is presented with the downstairs being mostly stripped and ready for renovation work to begin. The reception hall leads through to the dining room on the left, which originally featured a fireplace. The kitchen/family room is then located beyond this at one end of the property. This large spacious area currently has a stripped-back vaulted ceiling, and there is a door providing access to the garden. There is potential for this area to become a welcoming country kitchen and family room. At the other end of the property there is a sitting room, and also a bedroom, which could also be used as a snug. A W.C is currently located off the sitting room.

On the first floor, there is a spacious master bedroom benefiting from a large bay window, and two further generously-sized bedrooms. The bedrooms would be serviced by a family bathroom. There is also a small area accessed from both the hall and one of the bedrooms which could be used as a study or walk-in wardrobe.

Lot 2: Howslack Cottage (About 1.13 acres) The separate former master’s cottage has been partially renovated and features wooden flooring in the sitting room, as well as an open fireplace. The kitchen has been fitted with traditional-style cream fitted base units, along with a large Belfast sink and an attractive range cooker. There is a good-sized bedroom and both a bathroom and W.C.

The cottage could be extended under permitted development and subject to obtaining the necessary consents it would be possible to create a wonderful family home.

To the west of the property is a useful paddock, ideal for a pony. There may also be development potential on the paddock, again subject to obtaining the necessary consents.

This property has 5.8 acres of land.

Outside

The property is approached via a grass-covered driveway providing parking and access. There is potential to create a more formal entrance. There is also a large garage/workshop with sliding doors to the side of the property.

The location benefits from beautiful rural surroundings and uninterrupted countryside views from both inside and outside. The appealing stone exterior of the building blends beautifully with the surrounding countryside. There is a sloped grassy garden area to the rear of the property which is bordered by an original stone wall.
