Property Details

Yvonne Fitzgerald Properties is delighted to bring this unique and versatile 4 bedroom ( 3x en-suite) property, 10 acres of land, 4 electric hookups with hard standing for camper/caravans and several large outbuildings to the market.  The property is currently being used as a family home, however in the past Bencorragh House was run as a successful  Air B&B. 
Internally the accommodation comprises a lounge with a cosy multi-fuel stove, with access to the first bedroom via a barn sliding door. This bedroom is currently being used as an office/work-at-home space. Just off the main room is the bright family bathroom, a fitted kitchen as well as a generous utility room. 
The property has been recently renovated, with many of the original features from the cottage remaining, such as the exposed traditional brickwork and Caithness stone flooring in the conservatory, which extends to 35m2 in size and has double patio doors leading out to the sheltered south-facing courtyard.
The property has also recently benefitted from new double glazing and has 6kw solar panels.  The property also benefits from several large storage rooms or annexes, which could also be transformed into further accommodations.
Outbuildings include a trailer shed, a double stable block, and an agricultural barn. 
A large area of hardstanding to the rear of the property is currently used for dry turnout and parking for several large vehicles. 
The present owners have also installed 4 electric hookups to the front with sea views that could be utilized as further potential income due to the rising popularity of North Coast 500.
