Dating back to circa 1840 this beautiful Manse has been lovingly restored by its current owners. Nestled off a laneway only a stroll away from Killyleagh Castle, believed to be the oldest inhabited castle in the country; it is a private retreat yet is only minutes from Killyleagh village and the beautiful Strangford Lough.
This property is a Grade B1 listed building of historical and architectural interest.
The large entrance porch leads to an elegant reception hall with polished porcelain tiled flooring. The drawing room and dining room both look onto the well manicured front gardens and a spacious living room with cast iron wood burning stove leads to a beautiful hand painted kitchen with separate utility room and ground floor w.c. There are four good sized bedrooms to the first floor, master with en suite shower room and a modern bathroom with cast iron roll top ball and claw foot bath. There are two attic rooms to the second floor, ideal as dressing rooms or play room.
Of particular note is the charming walled garden with an array of colourful yet easily maintained planting. This leads to a pretty coach house which houses a garage, store room and two first floor rooms, ideal as a studio, home office or self contained apartment (subject to planning permission).
One could nearly miss the arched door which opens onto the paddock, very reminiscent of the children's classic 'The Secret Garden'.
Riverdale House is a wonderful home full of charm and character, ideal for a professional couple who love to entertain or for a family who can enjoy its magic. The wealth of accommodation presents opportunity for business ventures possibly for private weddings or guest accommodation (subject to planning).
