In what is believed to be the oldest former school house in Northern Ireland, The Old School House is a well-known landmark and important building in the history of Clough.
Dating back to the 17th century, the building has listed status and still retains many of the original features.
Sitting on a mature two-acre site, the dwelling also comes with stables and a detached double garage which could double up as a home office or work space.
This charming period home is filled with unique features and spacious rooms which are bright and inviting.
Original features such as sliding sash windows and stripped pine doors are lovely reminders of this property’s fantastic history.
Inside, the unconventional layout makes the main house stand out as something that is that little bit unique and special.
The property comprises a spacious entrance hall, large living room with dining area, kitchen with dining area, family bathroom, three bedrooms and a shower room.
The living room with dining area is a beautiful split-level room features a period marble fireplace with wood burning stove and a glazed door which leads out to the garden. Multiple windows including one of the large Gothic style arch windows mean this space bursts with light.
The generous kitchen features distressed pine units, a large Rayburn oil fired range and benefits from mod cons such as an integrated dishwasher and oven with space. Further practicality is added by the large larder with shelving.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor- one of which showcases a Gothic style feature window and views over the garden while the other has a glazed door leading to the garden.
The family bathroom is also on the ground floor and is modern with a white Jacuzzi bath, corner shower unit and finished with partly-tiled walls and ceramic floor tiling.
Upstairs, a third bedroom benefits from built in wardrobes and two double-glazed skylights, plus a modern shower room.
The property is located in a beautiful rural setting yet within easy commuting distance to Belfast and only a few miles outside the seaside town of Newcastle.
Accessed via electric entrance gates which lead onto a gravel driveway and parking area, beautiful gardens surround the property and the patio to the rear offers privacy for relaxing and entertaining.
