    Property Description

    The sale of "Foxleigh Hall" represents a truly unique opportunity to purchase which is unquestionably one of the finest homes in County Down, if not, Northern Ireland. Quality, grandeur and luxury abound in a home which has raised considerably the benchmark for prestige establishing itself as a magnificent landmark residence in one of County Down's most sought after locations.

    From the impressive entrance gates, Foxleigh Hall is approached by way of a sweeping gravel driveway bordered by rhododendrons, estate railing and period style lighting. Framed by privet box hedging and century old chestnut trees, the imposing stone-faced residence sits majestically on the brow of a hill, nestled in c.20 acres of landscaped grounds and paddocks and affording uninterrupted views over the rolling County Down countryside.

    The use of locally quarried stone, reclaimed red brick and reclaimed Bangor Blue slates, together with meticulous attention to detail and use of highly-skilled local conservation craftsmen, has served to create an elegant and imposing period residence which befits its magnificent surroundings.

    A period style granite Portico frames the double door entrance to "Foxleigh Hall". Upon entering the black and white marble floor reception hall, one's eyes is immediately drawn to the feature stained glass arched window on the landing, flooding the area with light and highlighting the magnificent proportions and ornate detailing of this truly impressive home.

    The first and second floors comprise graciously proportioned reception and bedroom accommodation with ensuites, dressing rooms and bathrooms and are accessed by way of a stunning staircase finished with French polished mahogany handrails and feature newell posts. The positioning of the period hardwood sash windows throughout, ensures maximum natural light and affords stunning views across the lush countryside from all bedroom accommodation.

    In essence, it is impossible to convey the sense of grandeur and overwhelming sense of style engendered by "Foxleigh Hall", and this home undoubtedly can only be fully appreciated upon personal inspection.
