Steeped in history and dating back to the early 1800s previous owners associated with Lislea House include Henry Smith Esq; John Crawford Bickerstaff and George Henry Barrett.
More recently in the ownership of the Allen family this sale brings to the fore a unique opportunity to acquire a property of character.
The residence, extending to 258 sq.mtrs occupies an elevated setting and will make a substantial family home. While in need of considerable refurbishment the accommodation includes some elegant rooms and retains many original and distinctive design features.
The lands, as listed under folio LD 3852 surround the dwelling and include seventy acres or thereabouts of primarily good grazing ground. To the rear of the residence is the farmyard comprising a large selection of two-storey outbuildings.
These include a six bay, a five-bay, a three-bay and two-bay complex with pitched natural slate roofs, some with carriage arches, limestone cills and other distinctive characteristics of the time, all providing historical context to the setting of the main dwelling.
