Additional Information

A Magnificent Former Schoolhouse Residence On Private, Elevated Setting With Adjoining Stables And Outhousing On Circa 5 Acres, Circa 4 Miles From Enniskillen Town. CLOSING DATE FOR RECEIPT OF OFFERS THURSDAY 15TH NOVEMBER 2018.

This unique property, situated just 4 miles from Enniskillen, off the main Bellanaleck/ Derrylin Road, on a beautifully elevated, yet secluded site, is steeped in history.

Under the Principalship of JH Burrows, who resided in the ‘on site’ Masters House, Jones Memorial Primary School opened its doors in 1904 after Michael Obins Jones bequeathed a legacy of £3000 in 1878 for the construction and upkeep of the school. By 1960 plans were afoot, due to increasing numbers, to build a new school. By the late 1960s the Army had taken over the premises prior to it being acquired by the present owners who lovingly and faithfully restored and refurbished the property into the charming, warm and welcoming family home it is today.

The property exudes a delightful atmosphere and incorporates many interesting and unusual features not often seen. The present owners have spent many years realising the full potential afforded by the spacious accommodation and the seclusion of the property, which has the added attraction of additional land and outbuildings making it the complete package for a range of discerning purchasers.

A delightful country home ideal for long term family living in a beautiful part of County Fermanagh and in a most accessible location. Viewing is by private appointment and comes highly recommended by the Selling Agent.
