Welcome to Elverstown House, a historic period farmhouse on an elevated site in a rich countryside setting. Elverstown House is believed to have been built in its current format in the early 1800’s, with the original castle on the site having been damaged in the rebellion of 1798. The kitchen, back kitchen and vaulted cellar are believed to be part of the original structure. The back kitchen has remained as it was in the 1800’s, with its large open hearth, stone floor, exposed rafters and original iron famine pot. This authenticity meant the house was recently a major location for the film “Black 47”.
This fine period home offers a charming interior, with spacious reception rooms and three double bedrooms. With many outbuildings attached, there is enormous further potential to increase the accommodation, subject to planning permission. Properties of such appeal, character and location are rare. This house offers endless potential in an idyllic setting. Viewing is highly recommended. Accommodation comprises entrance hall, living room, dining room, parlour, kitchen, back kitchen and cellar. Upstairs 3 bedrooms and bathroom.
