An Extraordinary Opportunity!
Duneight House is a fine Country Home with excellent farm buildings and equestrian facilities standing on circa. 20.5 acres of prime Co. Down land. We understand that the house was built in the early 1800s and carries a Grade two listing which adds to the charm and history.
The residence has many original features that have been well maintained over the years, the interior is comfortable and in character for the style of the property. There is oil-fired central heating supplemented by a wood burning caste iron stove in the kitchen/dining, which also provides hot water.
The principal accommodation comprises up to five first floor bedrooms plus a bathroom, three downstairs reception rooms, a kitchen/dining room, a shower room and additional ancillary rooms.
The land borders the banks of the Ravarnet River and includes the Norman era Motte and Bailey which is cared for by the Historic Mounuments Authority. Outside there are mature gardens and a very substantial range of outbuildings which include stables and loose boxes, feed stores, tack rooms and garaging. Other Equestrian facilities include a sand school, and there are two substantial purpose-built chicken houses suitable for a variety of uses.
Seldom do houses of this original Georgian character come to the market, seldom will they have such a substantial range of out-buildings and land on offer, and seldom will they be located in such a wonderful location surrounded by the beautiful County Down countryside.
The Gated front entrance leads to a fore court parking area, there are gardens to the front of the residence with lawns and mature trees, to the rear are further lawns and play areas with vegetable beds, green houses and fruit trees. The lands are well fenced and have water supply.
The inner court yard has two garages and further storage areas with adjoining out-buildings backing onto the 4 stables and loose boxes, there are two very large chicken houses 270' x 48' and 90' x 48' that are currently used for storage and a further Silo with Lie-in shed 65’ x 50’ and a Dutch Barn 110’ x 40’ that could be adapted to suit your requirements.
Towards the Motte there are additional buildings that may suit redevelopment, although they are also listed. The Motte is fenced off and is unavailable for use except for grazing sheep or goats as it is a protected structure.
Fields marked 1 & 2 on the Land Map may also be acquired, these extend to 5.46 acres.
From Lisburn take the Green Road which is off the Ballynahinch Road before the Legacurry Crossroads; and the residence is on the left-hand side, after 0.4 of a mile.
From Hillsborough take the Carnbane Road to Ravarnet follow through to the Legacurry Road which becomes the Green Road and the property will be found on the right-hand side.
There is a main front gate entrance to the car park area which leads around to the secondary gated exit.
