A characterful Georgian house with a private setting on about 12 acres
The Minnitt family of nearby Annaghbeg, who owned the townslands of Ballycraggan and Ballyanna around the village of Puckaun, built Ballycraggan House. The house was tenanted out as gentleman's farmers residence but fell into disrepair in the mid 1800's and extensive renovation works were undertaken at this time including the construction of the impressive front section.
Ballycraggan House is a three-bay period house and extends to approx. 369 sq m / 3,971 sq ft. The property is presented very well, is in good order and comes to the market ready for immediate occupation.
Ballycraggan has a hardcore, sweeping, tree lined driveway leading to a parking and turning area to the front of the house. The house is of traditional construction with a terracotta painted exterior beneath a slate roof. It is entered via double doors and the accommodation is over two principal floors.
The present owners have adapted the home to create accommodation suitable for family living, with an open plan kitchen/living room being the focal point of the house. The formal reception rooms to the front of the house are very tastefully decorated and are bright and airy spaces. There is also an office and a family room on the ground floor as well as a very useful boot room to the rear of the home.
There are six bedrooms (1 en suite) and a bathroom on the first floor. The bedrooms are large, comfortable and they also have lovely views of the gardens around the home. There is space and scope to add more ensuites if needed or to rearrange the layout if needed (S.P.P.).
Internal features include coving, ceiling roses and timber sliding sash windows. External features include a pitched slate roof, round-headed doorway, fanlight, gablets and chimneystacks.
In all the accommodation extends to approx. 369 sq m / 3,971 sq ft, with a full layout shown on the accompanying floorplans.
To the rear of the house, there is a beautiful stone-built stable building with 4 loose boxes and a useful shed. There is also a derelict outbuilding to the west of the house which could be converted to more accommodation (S.P.P.) or indeed for use as a store.
