A rare opportunity to acquire an impressive country house dating from around 1850 and located in a particularly peaceful location adjacent to open countryside and standing within its own mature grounds of around 1 acre or thereabouts. Ballasleig has had 2 extensions some years ago, 1 to the west wing producing a garden room the other a breakfast room adjoining the kitchen, utility room and double garage. There is, however, excellent further scope for expansion subject to the usual permissions.
The current accommodation briefly comprises: stone clad built-out entrance porch, entrance hall opening into a dining room, through lounge, garden room extension, fitted kitchen opening into a breakfast room, cloakroom and utility room, 4 good bedrooms of which 2 are double size and located to the 1st floor along with the family bathroom. Most of the windows are double glazed and there is oil fired central heating to the ground and 1st floors.
Ballasleig offers a wonderful opportunity for country living but without the hassle of acreage. It is in a very sunny position with surrounding countryside views which extend southwards to the hills.
A viewing is strongly recommended in order to appreciate this fine property.
The price is to include fitted carpets.
As previously mentioned Ballasleig stands in its own mature well stocked grounds of around 1 acre or thereabouts containing many established trees and shrubs along with generous lawned areas. It has a generous tarmac finished in-out driveway to the front accessed from a timber gate to the west side and a cattle grid to the east entrance. This driveway also leads to additional car parking. There is a spacious lawned area to the west part of the garden which leads to the rear of the property where there is a generous patio area itself leading to a further generous lawn. A further area contains a small orchard with fruit trees and some soft fruit cages.
