Additional Information

This exceptional family home is truly a one off! Located in the picturesque drumlins of Co. Down close to Hillsborough, Lisburn and Ballynahinch. The property was built in 1980 and the previous owners yet this property has the feel of a modern home. Ideal for commuters, Tawn Haws is only 15 minutes drive to Lisburn, Sprucefield and M1/A1 Intersection.

The house was designed to optimise the site and take full advantage of the location. The principle reception rooms in the house are all orientated with South/South Westerly aspect to frame the stunning views towards Slieve Croob and also ensuring an abundance of natural light.

The accommodation in the property is very flexible and rooms can be re-tasked to suit the requirements of the new owners. The main living areas flow into each other providing an incredibly sociable space perfect for modern family living and entertaining. Currently there are five bedrooms (two en-suite) plus study, family bathroom and sauna (also accessible from master en-suite), drawing room, lounge, dining room, kitchen with range of modern fitted units, plant room and integral garage. The open plan living space is particularly impressive with vaulted ceilings.

Tawn Haws is located on an incredibly private site with no properties overlooking it. Outside there are beautifully landscaped and incredibly well maintained gardens surrounding the house designed to provide plenty of spring and summer colour. The overall acreage of the site is c. 2.5 acres. The c1.5 acres of gardens are in lawns with mature boundary hedging, trees, shrubs and planted flowerbeds. There are also two paved south facing patios/sun terraces. The gardens also overlook Ballykeel Lougherne, which is a Brown Trout Fishery and can be easily accessed from the house. There is ample off street car parking.

For those with an equestrian interest there is a fenced paddock, two stables and tack room and a floodlit sand school which can be overlooked from the drawing room balcony of the house.

This unique property can only fully be appreciated on internal inspection and the views of the Mournes Mountains and Slieve Croob are quite simply stunning! The property strikes the perfect balance of quiet life and convenience.
