Description

'Sunnymount' is a fabulous period property, located in a scenic, sought after rural area, just off the Gilford Road close to Portadown. It sits amongst manicured gardens and mature parkland extending to around 1.8 acres.

On entering the property through the stone pillars, one will immediately feel you are arriving somewhere special, even before the house has appeared through the trees, you have time to take in the gardens. The sweeping driveway, winds through mature well kept gardens with its large mature trees and an abundance of shrub beds, planted with an array of flowering shrubs, which explode into vibrant colours as the seasons change.

The current owners, bought 'SunnyMount' nearly thirty years ago and set about modernising and extending the house and also started the passionate process of designing and landscaping their extensive grounds. They wanted somewhere in the country, yet close to town, where they could bring up their young family in a safe, comfortable environment. Fast forward thirty years, today the gardens have matured, the family have grown up and flown the nest. It's the right time for the current owners to take on a new project and they hope, that the next owners will be as happy in 'Sunnymount' as they have been.

Seldom does a property of this scale and grandeur, in such a fine, sought after location come to the market, it should appeal to a wide variety of people. The extensive courtyard with it's clock tower situated at the rear of the property, should appeal to the motoring enthusiast, or someone needing garaging for a boat or similar. Part of the courtyard comprises an old cottage, that could be renovated or restored (subject to planning etc) for anyone looking a granny flat or teenage pad. The courtyard can be accessed from the front drive, but it is also located beside the rear entrance, ideal for anyone wishing to a run their business or surgery from home (again subject to planning etc). The courtyard has been design with mainly 'horsepower' in mind, but if anyone had equestrian interests or a hobby farmer, there is an option to purchase an additional five acres of agricultural land, which adjoins the property and is accessed beside the front entrance.

All in all, we feel that this is a truly unique property in a special setting, and only by arranging a viewing will one fully appreciate all that this wonderful home has to offer.

The private grounds extend to around 1.8 acres and feature mature parkland at the front with mature trees and shrubs and a more formal garden at the rear laid in lawn with several patio areas and shrub beds.
