Additional Information

This magnificent property is situated in an idyllic setting and really has to be viewed to be fully appreciated. It is accessed via a private laneway bordered by privately owned fields and woods. On approach to the property the house comes into view elevated and surrounded by lawns and mature woodland.

The area is deemed an area of special scientific interest and is a wonderful and vibrant area for nature and wildlife. The property incorporates a private walkway that leads through a wooded glade offering access to adjoining lakes. This private access affords a unique opportunity for any potential purchaser with an interest in fishing/water activities.

Viewers should allow adequate time to stroll around the picturesque gardens. The entire site extends to circa 20 acres and the current owners have lovingly cared for every corner of the property. This is clearly apparent from the large areas of well main-tained lawns, wooded copse and glades and delightful hand built stone walls, steps and patio area. There are too many features to list and only careful viewing will reveal the true magic of the numerous secluded hideaways.

The property is located within close proximity of local amenities and renowned restaurants with Balloo House approximately 1.5 miles away and Daft Eddy's/Sketrick Island 4 miles away. It is also in close proximity to many tourist attractions and areas of na-tional interest and beauty such as Nendrum monastic site, Delamont Country Park and Killyleagh. The area is also renowned for the scenic tour of Strangford Lough and is perfect setting for any keen cyclist. For those commuting to Belfast, the City is easily accessible via a number of arterial routes. It is also in close proximity to Saintfield, Comber, Newtownards and Downpatrick (all 15-20 minutes drive).

The property itself was constructed by the current owners. The accommodation is exceedingly generous and comprises of
? A gracious reception hall

No expense has been spared in flooring the entirety of the property in reclaimed pine and mahogany wood block flooring and natural slate. There is an advanced Dual Com monitored alarm system already installed. Given the natural environment the present owners arranged for all electric to run underground and hence there are no electric wires visible around the property and grounds.

Given the size and privacy of the site any future owner may seek to get planning consent to build stable area or outhouses around the house.

This home and it's setting are truly one of a kind and will have broad appeal to potential purchasers seeking a tranquil and pri-vate setting minutes from local amenities and particularly those keen on having their own access to water facilities.
