About this property

  • 7 Ballygate is a most attractive Grade II Listed period property believed to date from 1580 and originally forming part of the Old Coaching Inn known as The Crown and Anchor.

    The house has spacious and well-proportioned rooms and retains much period detail including some fine 16th century timber framing. In particular the main drawing room is a large and well-proportioned room and this in turn leads into the dining room and to the south-facing conservatory overlooking the courtyard garden. Further useful rooms include a utility room, ground floor cloakroom, kitchen and spacious entrance hall. The second floor provides three spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large landing. There is also a drop down staircase leading to an extensive loft/attic floor (39' x 13.1') which could provide further bedroom accommodation subject to the necessary planning and Listed Building consents being obtained.

    To the southwest of the house, remote controlled, electrically operated gates give access to a driveway which leads to the extensive and secluded courtyard garden area where there is also ample provision for parking and access to the garage and outbuildings including a fantastic covered dining/BBQ area. There is a secluded rear courtyard garden area leading to pedestrian access to the rear of the property to Hungate.
