A man who was inside the Ballykeel Estate property confronted the attackers and suffered a head injury - while a car parked outside had its windows smashed.
Police arrested a group of men a short time afterwards, on suspicion of attempted arson endangering life, assault, possession of an offensive weapon, riotous behaviour, possession of a petrol bomb, throwing a petrol bomb and criminal damage.
Two of them, including a 16-year-old-boy, have been charged and are expected to appear at court on Monday, while the rest were released on bail.
The trouble started at around 3.40am on Sunday morning when a petrol bomb was thrown at the house in the Orkney Drive area of the Co Antrim town.
A man came out and was hit on the head, leaving him in need of medical treatment. The attackers also broke the windows of a Volkswagen Polo.
It is understood the 15 men believed to be involved in the incident - aged between 16 and 41 - were all detained at a house in the nearby area.
A boy aged 16 and man aged 38 are due in front of Coleraine Magistrates Court later while the rest were bailed pending further police enquiries.
