Ballybranagan House, a detached three-bay two-storey house was originally built in C. 1820 on a site beautifully nestled into the landscape, located only 500 metres from the expansive Ballybranagan Beach. This unique property is set on approximately 1.2 acres of its own grounds, which include gardens and original outbuildings. The house, which is not listed, faces due south and has been modernised and extended by the present owners as their family home since 2008. The house is protected on all four sides by its mature gardens. This attractive period property has retained a wealth of period features including high ceilings, original moulding, picture rails, open fireplaces, sash windows and exterior buildings.

The property features two vehicular access routes. Currently used as pedestrian access the front entrance leads you up a tree lined avenue surrounded by Hydrangea revealing the house as you approach. The rear access leads to parking, original out buildings and reveals a new rear section sympathetic to the house which was added in 2008.
