Ballyorban House started its life as a Georgian farmhouse constructed in 1920 and has adapted with its owners over the years. It now stands as a substantial six bedroomed detached family home extending to approx 3,968sq. ft. on grounds of 2.29acres (0.93 hectares). The property presents an opportunity to any family looking to buy a property with a rural setting and country feel while still being within minutes drive of services and facilities. Ballyorban House offers the best of both worlds. Offered for sale through joint agents Patricia Stokes Auctioneers & Valuers together with Frank V Murphy & Co. Ballyorban House is the last house in the city boundary before the county takes hold. Lovingly cared for over the years this home has a host of living accommodation at ground floor level while all six bedrooms are at first floor level. The property was extended over its lifetime with the owners exercising sympathy to ensure any and all additions worked well with the original structure. The flow of living space moves easily from room to room with no door saddles and floor finishes knitting nicely. The property has double glazed sash windows complete with plantation shutters fitted on most. Double teak front door on an enclosed entrance porch with glazing sets the tone of the spacious bright interior to be expected. This home does not disappoint. Living accommodation offers reception hall, kitchen/dining room, wrap around sun room, family room, living room, lounge, home office/teenage den, utility room and guest wc all at ground floor level. A beautiful bright and spacious landing divides the six bedrooms at first floor level with three to one side and three to the other. The property presents really well with fully fitted kitchen, feature fireplaces, Italian marble tiling, fitted and walk in robes/dressing rooms. Ballyorban House sits beautifully amongst approx. 2.3 acres of grounds and offers a number of access points from the roadside. Double electric gates lead through to the front of the house arriving over a sweeping driveway with twists and turns. It is possible to drive out the other side. The rear of the property offers an enclosed courtyard with a second set of double gates. A number of outbuildings located here could easily be restored (subject to planning permission) to become an independent home office or work studio depending on the buyers requirements. The front door leads out onto the southern side and into a wall in garden laid mainly to lawn with mature hedging, shrubs and trees. The balance of the lands are also laid to lawn and enclosed with mature laurel hedges in places as well as mature trees. The property is well located closed to the vibrant village of Douglas while at the same time within easy reach of Carrigaline and all that the town has to offer. Viewing highly recommended and strictly by appointment.
