This important sale offers a rare opportunity to purchase a stunning country home with land in a fabulous mature setting.
In recent years a considerable amount of time and money has gone into creating what must rank among one of the finest country houses in the area.
‘Lisnamore’ is approached along a private avenue lined with chestnut trees, grass borders and Spring bulbs. There is an attractive stone entrance with electric gates and a small lake on either side. All around is beautiful mature rolling countryside which is so typical of this part of County Down
The house itself dates back to Victorian times, but has been sympathetically refurbished and extended to take advantage of the views. It offers bright and well proportioned accommodation which benefits from all the comforts and features one would wish for in the 21st century. Much attention has also been given to the outbuildings. The particularly attractive stone barn has been carefully restored. As well as a useful workshop and stores it has a large first floor office or games room which would lend itself to a number of uses including separate accommodation. There are 8 stables and a yard area which is hidden from the house. The land surrounds the house and is laid out in well fenced fields.
Crossgar is a centrally located village with excellent road links to other areas. There are a variety of shops, schools and churches in the village as well as in Downpatrick and Ballynahinch. The proximity to Strangford Lough opens up the opportunity to enjoy sailing and there are a number of good golf courses nearby.
This property offers an opportunity to enjoy country life at its very best!
