Additional Information


‘Rose Cottage’ provides a superb opportunity to purchase a period cottage set on a mature site extending to approximately 2.8 acres including a range of outbuildings, stables, pig shed, barns and hay shed.

The original house would require considerable updating and re-modelling but offers an excellent footprint in excess of 2000 sq. ft. with the additional potential to extend into the adjoining outbuildings.

The mature sheltered gardens are delightful; enjoying a sunny aspect with its well maintained lawns, mature shrub and woodland planting that affords an excellent degree of privacy. The enclosed paddocks to the rear and side are bordered by mature hedging, tree planting and the river, providing good grazing for those with equine interest or with livestock.

The comprehensive range of outbuildings in a courtyard setting provide options for a multitude of different uses including keeping livestock, stabling, storage or a change of use (subject to planning).

An original stone Cottage located within in the rear courtyard may provide hope for a replacement dwelling (subject to planning), ideal for those wanting independent ancillary accommodation.

‘Rose Cottage’ enjoys a much desired rural situation less than a mile from Lisbane Village and less than two miles from Balloo Village and has the added bonus of a bus stop outside its gate. Its location offers ease of access to the surrounding Villages and commuter routes to Belfast.
