Strangford Lough is renowned as a haven for marine wildlife and as a centre for a wide variety of aquatic and other leisure pursuits. It is an internationally recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and was designated Northern Ireland's first Marine Nature Reserve. As such, it is subject to rigorously controlled residential development on the shoreline. This sale presents a rare opportunity to acquire an individually designed and outstandingly attractive property on the lough shore.

The property is situated 1.9 miles north of the picturesque town of Portaferry, on the eastern shore of the lough, approximately a forty minute drive from Belfast and accessible from Downpatrick by the Strangford ferry. The house faces directly across the lough towards Killyleagh and has stunning and endlessly varied views, extending from the Mourne Mountains in the south to Scrabo Hill in the north. In keeping with its origins, this cottage-style residence cleverly blends contemporary appeal with traditional character. A splendid reception/dining hall sets the scene for its bright and airy accommodation, while the main reception rooms feature magnificent marine views. The property nestles amidst landscaped gardens and is surrounded by an array of mature specimen plants and shrubs.

We feel confident this wonderfully unique property will appeal to those seeking not only a home but also a retreat.
