Potential buyers have been told this property is a chance to own “a truly unique rural residence.”

Located on the outskirts of Limavady, the Old Balteagh School is within commuting distance of Coleraine and Derry / Londonderry, the perfect area for working commuters who are looking to escape the bustle of larger cities.

Extensive work has been undertaken to create a home fit for modern family life. However, the hallways retain the “considerable character and charm.”
