    The Farm at Athgoe includes a picturesque cottage positioned off a tranquil county road but a convenient drive from the N7.

    The cottage occupies an elevated position with a stunning outlook over the mature countryside and rolling hills. The property is accessed from Athgoe Road through two stone piers, with a short gravel driveway which leads to the front. The original structure is believed to date from about 1930 and includes two bay windows, with an extension to the south. The cottage has a painted exterior and a pitched slated roof.

    The light-filled accommodation is laid out over a single storey, as shown on the accompanying plans. Extending to about 1,377 square feet, the accommodation is well suited for both modern day family living and entertaining. The cottage includes two kitchens, reception rooms and bathrooms, making it suitable for creating two self-contained living areas. Internal features include stoves, exposed timber beams, an open fire, double glazing and French windows. The cottage is heated centrally by oil. There are mains electricity and water supplies and private drainage via a septic tank.
