Welcome to 74 Finvoy Road! Designed and constructed in 1965 for an American occupier, the stage in set in terms of layout and generously proportioned accommodation, this however is only the beginning. The current occupiers of thirty four years then began the journey of sympathetically remodelling and extending to what currently provides for just over 3400 sqft of beautiful family accommodation nestled on a total site size of 2.5 acres with the added bonus of workshop, dual driveways, mature landscaped gardens and outline planning permission for a second site.
On approach, Derryview has its own private slip road just off the main Finvoy Road, circa 1.5 miles from Ballymoney town centre, fifteen minute drive to the glorious North Coast with beautiful sandy beaches, rugged cliff walks and multiple tourist attractions. With the current upgrade of the A26, the commute to Belfast and major airports some fifty minutes away. Cleverly designed to make use of all natural light, views towards Donegal are evident from the front with views of rolling countryside to the sides and rear.
This fabulous family home offers five bedroom, three reception accommodation or four and four together with it's own dispensing bar and man cave, solid maple kitchen units, conservatory, oversized ensuite, handcrafted sauna, workshop and potential for a second site with dual driveways. The craftsmanship and attention to detail are evident from the moment one enters the property, but don't take our word for it, never has the term early internal inspection required been more apparent.
Given the location and accommodation provided, Derryview makes the perfect family home but could naturally lend itself to B&B if so wished. Judge for yourself and make the decision to view at your earliest opportunity.
