Detached House

For Sale



BER No: 800756082


Superb 8 bedroom (6 ensuite) house with 500mb broadband,
gym, library and enchanting views over Burt, Inch Island and Lough Swilly.
Prestige, privacy, peacefulness and style are all in abundance in this house
with the added benefit of coexisting rural and city lives (Derry City – 5
miles, City of Derry Airport – 11 miles). It sits on around 1.1 acres of
beautiful landscaped gardens and uniquely bordered on one side by Burt Ancient

The Old Parochial House was originally built around 1853
with stone walls, it was refurbished and extended on either wing in 2007
including wiring, roofing, plumbing and efficiency upgrades. The current design
offers great character whilst retaining an original feeling throughout.
Measuring 359.6 sq m (3871 sq ft) the stand out B3 BER rating is testament to
the modernisation works.

all levels. Burt is known as an upmarket area and is home to many prestigious
residents who work in Donegal, Derry or from home.
