PROPERTY OF THE WEEK: 8 photos of an exceptional rural residence for sale in Cloughmills

An ‘exceptional rural residence’ called White Stone is currently on the market in Cloughmills priced at £267,950.

Many of us aspire to rural living but quite often the properties for sale are too large, fairly expensive or otherwise dated and requiring work!

McAfee Properties, Ballymoney, are delighted to offer for sale this exceptional property which will surely tick most of the boxes for a range of discerning buyers.

'White Stone' (as its known) is immaculately finished and presented throughout with generously proportioned living quarters including many double aspect rooms to make the most of those delightful countryside views including the Antrim Glens and Knocklayde Mountain.

Unlike many new homes 93A Ballyveely Road, Cloughmills, offers three spacious double bedrooms (two with ensuite facilities); a fantastic triple aspect living room (providing picture postcard views) plus the hub of the home - an extensively fitted double aspect kitchen/dinette open plan to a sun room with a vaulted ceiling and direct access to the gardens - for extending entertaining on those long summer evenings.

Indeed 'White Stone' really does outshine the competition having been impeccably constructed and maintained with many fine features including a blend of traditional/modern themes – most notably the thicker external walls with chamfered internal window recesses; external rough cast finish and roof slates; oak internal trim and balustrade staircase; contemporary bathroom, en-suite and cloakroom; digital thermostatic heating controls and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.

It's also conveniently only a few miles drive to Cloughmills and the A26 Frosses Road for commuting or visiting the Causeway Coast; and literally around the corner from the picturesque Lissanoure Castle.

This exceptional property really does offer something for any type of buyer – the current (and one very careful owner) is only now reluctantly thinking of downsizing. The agents therefore highly recommend viewing to fully appreciate the super proportions, quality finish and delightful situation of the same. Please note that viewing is strictly by appointment only.
