RESIDENCE
Ashmount House is a well proportioned elegant Georgian three bay two storey residence built in circa 1850 with various extensions added. The house is approached via a recessed limestone entrance with tarmacadam drive and occupies a lovely private setting surrounded by mature timber and gardens. Structurally the property appears to be in good condition throughout with dashed rendered exterior, slate roof, limestone sills, suspended timber floors throughout and solid block walls. The house was completely rewired and plumbed in the last eleven years and there is oil fired central heating throughout. There are a combination of timber and uPVC windows. The sliding timber sash windows were fully restored about 4 years ago.

Outside there are gardens with raised beds, lawns, orchard and mature trees all very well manicured and minded. There is also an outside wc and store adjacent to the house.

INNER YARD
Immediately to the rear of the residence is a traditional yard with a number of stores and sheds including a lofted workshop. These could be used or converted for a wide range of purposes.

• 4 span hay barn with slats (40–45 sucklers) & 2 dry base lean-to sheds.
• Cattle handling facilities with crush and pens.
