About this property

  • Mounthooly Haugh was completed in 2013 and occupies a slightly raised plot above its own policies of 16 acres which lie to the north. The property has bright and spacious accommodation arranged over two floors with generous reception rooms on the ground floor and four double bedrooms at first floor level. While having all of the benefits of a modern building including underfloor heating throughout, the house also has many period-style features such as sash and case windows.

    At the centre of the house is a large reception hallway and cloakroom, which give access to the sitting room and kitchen. The open plan kitchen / dining / family room is the heart of the house with a limestone floor that flows from the entrance hall. There is plenty of natural light with windows on three sides and a set of French doors to the garden. The kitchen is fitted with traditionally styled base and wall mounted units with a granite work surface. There is a central island with Belfast sink and various integrated appliances which include a double oven, gas hob, dishwasher and fridge / freezer. The room has ample space for a large dining table and a sitting area with TV point.

    The more formal Sitting room is also triple aspect and has an attractive open fireplace with decorative sandstone surround and mantel. It has double doors from the hallway and is a bright space thanks to south and west facing windows. The ground floor also has a double bedroom with en suite and walk in fitted wardrobes. The ground floor accommodation is completed with a home office with Cat-5 ethernet points which are wired to every room in the property from a central hub along with sound system cabling throughout for ceiling speakers. The utility room has an integrated fridge/freezer and space for a washing machine and dryer, housing for the central heating boiler and a glazed rear entrance door out to the garden and stables beyond.

    The first floor is reached by a staircase which is accessed off the main hallway. There is a generous landing with cupboards which leads to four double bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms have en suite bath / shower rooms and there is a family bathroom which services two further bedrooms. Each of the bedrooms has a different view over the surrounding countryside.

    Immediately surrounding the house are well maintained gardens which are mainly laid to lawn. At either end of the house are patios which are perfect for outdoor dining and entertaining. There is also a large gravel driveway to the front of the house where there is space for several vehicles.

    Adjacent to the house and across the private road is a large agricultural shed which has been turned into stabling. To the front is a hardstanding and there are sliding doors which open into the building itself which has power, lighting and a water supply. The building is currently set up with 19 loose boxes, a tack room, feed room and WC but could support a number of other uses. The land, which extends to about 15 acres, is split into two and enclosed by a well-kept timber fence. There is access to the paddock by the stables and all the grounds can be viewed from the house. At the rear of the stables is a small riding arena.
