This quality built apartment will undoubtedly attract a discerning retirement/second home/investment/'lock up and go' buyer wishing to reside within this residential/holiday setting, with all the amenities on offer. Our vendor has informed ourselves that the furnishings will be included in the sale.

Kenegie Manor is approached from the road, and passing through an impressive pair of granite entrance piers, and onto the tree lined tarmac driveway leading up to the residence. The home offers many character features including fabulous large stone mullion windows (complemented by external exposed quoins/sills and fitted with UPVC double glazed windows) granite elevations and high ceilings which naturally create a light and vibrant ambience.

The apartment offers exceptionally spacious accommodation, and has been stylishly internally decorated throughout in a contemporary 'white' colour scheme, and further enhanced by beautifully crafted ornate patterned ceilings.

The south facing manor house we have been advised was built circa 1530, and converted into quality apartments in 2006. The property has substantial granite external elevations, under a slate tiled roof, quality stone mullion windows frames fitted with UPVC double glazed windows and warmed by electric heating. Of particular architectural interest, the front and rear elevations of this distinguished manor house are equally impressive, and different in their external design. The gardens are enjoyed communally by the manor residents, where the front garden is mainly laid to lawn, and the exquisite rear sheltered garden offers beautiful planted borders complemented by a plethora of specimen plants, box hedging, seating area, and provides much natural colour through the summer months.
We have been informed by our vendor there is no onward chain.
