Sale of historic Agivey House on 135ac for €2.16 m

Savills Northern Ireland and joint agents, Bensons, have announced the sale of Agivey House, a “stunning” period home situated in a “breathtaking” location along the Agivey River.

The property is listed for £1,900,000 (€2,166,401) and boasts 135.9 acres of agricultural land and woodland, offering an “exceptional” countryside experience.

Agivey House is a renovated, four-floor country residence dating back to the 17th century.

The home combines modern conveniences with period features, including Georgian sliding sash windows and an 18th-century grey marble and mosaic fireplace from the nearby Downhill House.

The residence boasts generous living spaces across its four floors, including a master suite, home office, and a potential self-contained apartment in the basement.

The property is set in beautifully manicured front and rear lawns and offers a secluded environment bordered by mature trees.

Agivey House

Adjacent to Agivey House is a one-and-a-half-storey former farm cottage in need of refurbishment, alongside a modernized farmyard featuring new cattle sheds, a large silo, and a grain store.

Located approximately 9 miles southeast of Coleraine and within easy reach of Belfast and Derry / Londonderry, Agivey House offers both tranquillity and accessibility.

The property benefits from its proximity to retail amenities and educational institutions, as well as world-class tourist destinations like the Giants Causeway and Royal Portrush Golf Club.

Built on a site that has witnessed hundreds of years of history, including the Irish Rebellion of 1641, Agivey House carries a rich narrative that makes it even more unique.

Most recently, the property underwent a comprehensive renovation in 2005 by the current owners, who have held the property in their family since 1951.

A piece of Northern Irish history

Neal Morrison of Savills Northern Ireland and Columb Henry from Bensons commented, “Agivey House is not just a home; it is a piece of Northern Irish history encapsulated in an extraordinary setting”.

“Its blend of modern amenities with period details provides a luxury living experience that is truly unparalleled.”

“This property offers not only a magnificent residence but also tremendous potential for agricultural or touristic development,” Morrison concluded.
