Course Stables, 12 Coily Hill Road, Killyleagh, County Down, BT30 9ST
Description & Features
This beautiful and unique country residence is located on the edge of Killyleagh amidst surrounding farmland, and less than 1 mile from the eastern shores of Strangford Lough. Killyleagh is a busy country village, famous for its 12th Century castle, believed to be the oldest inhabited castle in Ireland, and a stronghold on the lough within the sailing community.
Dating back to circa 1810 "Course Stables" was originally a stable building as part of an out farm belonging to Killyleagh Castle. In keeping with its origins this stone built residence has been sympathetically modernised by our client during their custodianship, and cleverly blends contemporary living with traditional character. The property is accessed via a privately owned laneway, shared with two other properties, which leads onto a long sweeping drive through the gardens to the dwelling. Set in mature grounds extending to around 1.3 acres with extensive lawns, range of mature native trees, thick hedgerow boundary, flowerbeds and two wells.
The subject property is positioned within a 40 minute drive from Belfast and easily accessible to Downpatrick, Lisburn, Saintfield and Comber towns. There are a plethora of primary and secondary schools within the greater Strangford Lough Lecale Area and also superb transport links for leading East/ South Belfast schooling options.
In all, a superbly restored country house in a most sought after and accessible area of County Down. Viewing is by private appointment, to arrange please contact our Newtownards branch on 02891 800700.
