Nine stones Cottage is an immaculately presented, charming two-bedroom traditional farmhouse (c. 1800), which today extends to approximately 99 sq m (1,065 sq ft). A comprehensive programme of renovation was carried out over the past 10-15 years in keeping with the character and period of the farmhouse and now the current owners enjoy a warm and welcoming home with modern comforts. The exposed stone has been rendered and painted externally and decorated internally.
In total the property extends to about 0.2 hectare (0.5 acre) of lawn and gardens bordered by attractive dry-stone walls. Entry to the property is via a timber gate with a gravel driveway leading to the front of the house. The gardens are tidy and comprise lawn, a decked terrace area, raised beds and a water feature.
There are three traditional stone outbuildings adjacent to the house.
The house is entered via an attractive half door into a porch area which in turn leads to a large kitchen/dining area. The kitchen has fully fitted country style cupboards, a Stanley range and a traditional Belfast ceramic sink. There is also a beautiful stone floor and an open stairway to the first floor. Access to the outside decking area is through French windows off the dining area. The views of the valley from the dining table through the French windows are a key feature.
The sitting room is entered from the kitchen and centres around a stone fireplace with a Stanley log burner insert. The timber floor adds to the charm and homely feel of this room.
At first floor level there is a carpeted landing with two spacious fully carpeted bedrooms off. There is also a family bathroom with storage. The bathroom and second bedroom also have Velux windows.
