Additional Information







This 3 bedroom detached cottage is accessed via a private laneway off the Gortnessy Road and offers an abundance of potential. Nestled into the picturesque rural setting, this property offers spectacular views across to the Sperrins and the surrounding countryside, yet is only a few minutes drive from Eglinton and Drumahoe. Whilst the property requires modernisation, it represents an excellent opportunity to become a dream family home in a convenient and peaceful location.

26 Gortnessy Road has the added bonus of the generous plot on which the property is sited. Extending to approximately 1.5 of an acre, there are 2 paddocks on either side of the laneway, ideal for a family who have young kids with horse and pony interests. The house is flanked by a garden on one side and a generous yard to the other with a number of sheds and outhouses, all of which can be easily converted to suit the new buyer’s individual needs. Additional access is available from Kilnappy Road”

The site may also offer potential for 1 or more dwellings, subject to local council planning regulations.  Back on 26th November 2002 outline planning was permitted for a 2nd dwelling.
