Derry House dates from around 1888 and retains most of its charming period features including sash windows, shutters, fireplaces, slateflagged and wooden flooring as well as a fine colonial style veranda.

The property has four bedrooms, three reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, pantry, ground floor ‘wet’ room, three bathrooms and a conservatory. The top floor has been completely converted into an attic studio which benefits from a magnificent balcony making the most of the sea views.

There is also a two-storey stone-built former coach house and stable suitable for conversion subject to planning consent being obtained.
