8-bedroom Victorian era property in a desirable location
Olive Grove is an end-of-terrace three-storey townhouse in a prominent location on the Main Street of Blacklion. The property dates back to 1862 and was historically used as a retail store, but in recent years has operated as a successful guesthouse and restaurant business by the current owners.
The accommodation is laid out over 3 floors, comprising 8 bedrooms in total, and is suitable for both a guest house and modern family living. The house is presented in immaculate condition but would need some modernising and redecoration in some parts of the property. A full layout of the accommodation is shown on the adjoining floorplans.
External features include an impressive façade with a spoked fanlight above the entrance door.
