Belfast Telegraph - Homefinder - - News - Stephanie Bell re­ports

Nes­tled among won­der­ful grounds of five aces this prom­i­nent pe­riod res­i­dence in Bal­ly­money of­fers much more than a beau­ti­ful home.

There are end­less op­por­tu­ni­ties for de­vel­op­ing your own busi­ness right in the heart of this stun­ning lo­ca­tion.

A large stone barn has been con­verted into a func­tion room which can seat up to 120 peo­ple and is per­fect for wed­dings or con­fer­ences while an an­nex could eas­ily be con­verted into a hol­i­day cot­tage/of­fice or surgery.

The prop­erty is just a short drive to the A26 Frosses Road lead­ing North to the Cause­way Coast and South towards Belfast and the In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

Cur­ry­siskan House is a beau­ti­ful and spa­cious prop­erty with six bed­rooms, two with en suite, three-plus re­cep­tion rooms, a large kitchen/din­ing room and a games room.

A re­cep­tion porch with sash win­dows leads into the main hall­way through a pretty stained glass front door. The long hall is fin­ished with at­trac­tive fea­ture pat­terned pe­riod floor tiles and just of it is a WC with van­ity unit.

A de­light­ful draw­ing room opens in to a large bay win­dow with seat­ing area and there the room has many pe­riod fea­tures in­clud­ing a mar­ble fire­place and orig­i­nal win­dow shut­ters and wooden floor.

A cosy sit­ting room fea­tures a brick fire­place with beam man­tle and multi fuel stove and again beau­ti­ful pe­riod touches in­clude orig­i­nal win­dow shut­ters and cov­ing.

A charm­ing coun­try kitchen/ din­ing room is fit­ted with Al­wood units and has a huge Aga cooker at its heart. There is an is­land unit and a bay win­dow in the din­ing area which of­fers views out to the ma­ture gar­dens.

A door from the kitchen leads to a lovely con­ser­va­tory where French doors open into the court­yard.

There is also a util­ity room and a sep­a­rate WC.

A split level land­ing leads to the ex­ten­sive first floor ac­com­mo­da­tion. Two of the six bed­rooms come with su­perb en suites and two more have their own van­ity sinks.

There is an ad­di­tional shower room with part pan­elled walls and wooden floor and a large fully tiled shower cu­bi­cle.

The an­nex which was orig­i­nally used as a surgery comes with its own en­trance porch and fea­tures a great home of­fice with an ex­ten­sive range of fit­ted fur­ni­ture in­clud­ing a large desk, stor­age units and fil­ing cab­i­nets.

There is a wait­ing room and a surgery room, re­cep­tion area and a sep­a­rate WC.

A spi­ral stair ace leads to the first floor where there is a study, a shower room and a games room, plus a door to ac­cess the bed­room ac­com­mo­da­tion in the main house.

The fa­cil­i­ties in the barn are fan­tas­tic. A warm re­cep­tion area is fin­ished with a multi fuel stove and ex­posed orig­i­nal cob­bled floor and there are both ladies and gents toi­lets and a shower room.

The coun­try feel con­tin­ues on the large land­ing where there is a wooden floor and wood de­tail­ing in re­claimed wood.

There is a meet­ing room and a kitchen also built from re­claimed wood with a vaulted ceil­ing and a serv­ing hatch lead­ing into a con­fer­ence room.

This huge space which seats up to 120 peo­ple is also filled with rus­tic charm and has a vaulted and beamed ceil­ing, plus orig­i­nal stone walls.

There is an ad­di­tional lower barn ac­com­mo­da­tion with two stores and fur­ther out­build­ings in­clud­ing a for­mer 20 cow byre with a vaulted and beamed ceil­ing, a dou­ble garage and an ad­di­tional store.

The house en­joys an el­e­vated and prom­i­nent po­si­tion nes­tled among the most beau­ti­ful grounds and gar­dens with a pad­dock.
