Lot 1 - Barry House is an impressive detached farmhouse located in an accessible and very desirable rural setting near Glenbarry. Enjoying a very pleasant outlook with stunning views towards The Knock, the house is likely to date from the late 1800s and is built from stone under a slate roof. Spacious, well-appointed and flexible accommodation is provided over two storeys. On the ground floor, the dual aspect main reception hall has stairs to the first floor and various doors off.
To the right are two generously sized bedrooms, one of which is also dual aspect and has a lovely outlook over the paddocks nearby. A bathroom is also accessed off the hall whilst to the left is the sitting room with a large wood burning stove. A room accessed off the sitting room could be used as a home office, study or potentially an additional bedroom. Also on the ground floor is a shower room with modern fittings and the attractive dining kitchen with a range of wall and floor units and an integrated cooker and extractor. Completing the ground floor is the rear hall / utility room. The first floor accommodation can be accessed by two separate staircases. The stairs from the main hallway lead to a landing with doors to two double bedrooms and a useful box room. Stairs from the inner hall lead to a play room / 5th bedroom which also has a large walk in storage cupboard.

The rooms are all of a generous size and the large windows flood the interior with natural light giving the house a bright and airy atmosphere. It is tastefully decorated throughout and has a number of fine features one would expect in a quality period farmhouse, including tall corniced ceilings and a fire place (with wood burning stove) in the sitting room. The house is double glazed and has oil central heating.

There is a small garden to the front and rear with parking provided on a gravelled parking area.

Located to the rear and side of the house are two excellent grazing paddocks and the property in total (lot 1) extends to about 1.7 acres.
