Few homes of great character and historical interest ever reach the open market, Pinkerton Murray are delighted to offer 'Dalmeny Lodge' 'For Sale' and would expect serious interest from those seeking such a property.
This stucco style detached was built circa 1905 by the famous Ernest L Woods for the late John Brown - who ran the original commuter boats between Bangor and Belfast. It is recounted that the original parapet was home to his telescope to keep a track on his boats!
Extending over 3000sq ft, the property exudes grandeur throughout The entrance hall - complete with original parquet flooring, mahogany staircase and reclaimed cast iron radiators as well as the delightful kaleidoscopic leaded glass window on the first floor landing.
On the ground floor, there are four separate reception rooms, beginning with the imposing formal living room with a feature fireplace and bay window, this comfortable room also is one of many that still retains the original plasterwork, doors and picture rails - all of which add real depth and warmth.
The lounge boasts a resplendent plaster ceiling and is impressive by anyone's scale. The family room too is a more comfortable room yet features a magnificent fireplace and bay window.
To the rear of the property, the kitchen can be found with handmade solid wood units, granite work surfaces and an 'Aga', which leads into the breakfast room.
The rear hall boasts a downstairs cloak room, a butler's pantry and a utility room, while there is further storage and utility space found in the covered rear yard.
There are six bedrooms to the first floor, with the master bedroom benefiting from an ensuite shower room and dressing room as well as excellent views across Bangor Marina and the Town. Three of the remaining five bedrooms also enjoy sea views and all these rooms are of ample proportions. Off the gallery landing one will find the main bathroom and a separate wc.
The current owners have undertaken a considerable programme of improvements at the property which include the installation of gas fired central heating as well as a damp proof course the rear of the property.
Outside, there is ample parking to the front and side of the property and a large double garage to the rear. The large front garden is laid in lawn and the side enjoys a patio area and there is an almost hidden rear garden in lawn with a sunken pond.
