Gracehill, described as the jewel in the crown of County Antrim, is an award-winning Georgian village, founded by the Moravian Church in 1759, was Northern Ireland's first Conservation Area and uniquely, is the only complete Moravian settlement in Ireland. It has recently progressed to an advanced stage nomination for UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

Life in the Village today is of course very different to the 18th Century. Living in Gracehill offers an opportunity to thrive in a tranquil setting and be part of a delightful vibrant community. Highlights include monthly village markets, the annual village fair and the annual Heritage Open day. Christmas is a very special time in Gracehill and the village takes on a magical appearance with a large Christmas tree and fairy lights adorning the square. One of the most popular events is the Christingle service on Xmas Eve and concludes with singing carols by candlelight.


There are only 8 original Moravian stone built residences that have a front row vista of the tranquil tree lined village square that has been faithfully restored to its former beauty. Such is the originality of this property that standing in the square and viewing the Ladies Academy you will fully appreciate the attention to detail that has kept this property true to Moravian tradition.

The Ladies Academy was constructed in 1795 and remained as a day and boarding school for ladies from near and far for over a century. It gained an exceptional reputation for education.

The Ladies Academy is a B1 Listed building and has beautifully proportioned and well maintained accommodation which benefits from a host of original period features including high quality fireplaces, flooring, and exposed beams throughout. In brief the layout provides for six bedrooms, two reception rooms, bespoke conservatory, Chalon fully fitted kitchen, family bathroom, and downstairs cloakroom. Over the last 20 years extensive works have been carried out to the property including replumbing, rewiring, and repointing of exterior stonework. Externally the property benefits from beautiful gardens and a rear Coach House with generous parking for 4 cars.

The location of Gracehill is exceptionally close to a host of excellent local amenities within the Ballymena Area, superb schooling at nearby grammar schools including Ballymena Academy, St Louis Grammar School, and Cambridge House with Belfast City Centre 40 mins away, International Airport 25 minutes, and the North Coast 45 minutes away.


This property has remained in the same family for over half a century. It was brought back to its original status in 2004 for the first time in over 100 years when it was reunited with the Ladies Academy Annexe resulting in the only front row residential property complete with its original full garden and coach house. It was divided into 2 properties again in 2017 and we are now delighted to offer both properties on the market. This is an incredibly rare opportunity to buy one of these stunning properties or invest in both and secure the largest available footprint of prime Gracehill village square history.
