Burns & Co, one of the leading Estate Agency groups in the province, are pleased to have listed 'For Sale', Ampertaine House, an elegant and charming 19th Century mansion set in a c.10 acre holding in the historic linen village of Upperlands, County Londonderry. The most important of several country houses in the neighbourhood constructed by the Clark family and fully restored by the current owners over the past 30 years, Ampertaine House is a late-Georgian style property built c.1853 by William Clark and is regarded as one of the finest private homes in Northern Ireland. The principal dwelling extends to c.8,000sq.ft. (excluding the full height basement) and includes six bedrooms, all individually styled, and six reception rooms.
