Description of 50 Ballynagarrick Road, Carryduff, Belfast
An older but nevertheless well presented and suitable for occupation this country style cottage, single storey bungalow provides compact THREE bedroom accommodation with a generous sized reception room, good square shaped kitchen and a fashionable bathroom with corner bath and shower over. A short drive off the A24 Saintfield Road or from the B178 Lisburn Road the property occupies a mature rural setting at the junction where the Ballynagarrick Road joins the Upper Mealough Road close to Drumbo and Ballycoan Road and has the benefit of road frontage to both with good vehicle access, off road turning, ample onsite parking or alternatively useful external storage space or perhaps room to keep a small pony. Within the overall site of circa 0.6 acre approximately the existing dwelling would perhaps be more suitable for replacement or extension and modification subject to survey and obtaining all necessary statutory approvals. In addition, a further opportunity may exist to develop a 2nd dwelling on the site immediately adjoining the existing vehicle entrance for which Full Planning Approval with specific condition has been obtained (see references below). Of interest to builders, self build enthusiasts, professional couples or others who may seize this opportunity to develop a home designed or adapted for their own requirements while utilising the comfortable, centrally heated present accommodation as they embark upon that process.
