Grendon, 16 Downshire Road, Bangor, Down, BT20 3TW
Description & Features
“Grendon” is a distinguished family home situated on a mature site on the highly desirable Downshire Road. Built around 1920, the house has been in the same family ownership for over 100 years. Throughout that time the building and grounds have been carefully maintained and consistently upgraded. The addition of double glazed windows, cavity wall & loft insulation and most recently the installation of a new gas boiler only last summer have kept the house in touch with today’s standards of energy efficiency.
In tandem with these improvements, much of the original grandeur has been retained such as high corniced ceilings and original fireplaces. But at this unique time in Grendon’s history a new owner is now offered the opportunity to add contemporary styling to this much loved family home.
Ground floor accommodation comprises four generous and well proportioned reception rooms, a kitchen, pantry and cloakroom with WC. There is no question that the kitchen is in need of upgrading but ample space is available internally to accommodate a revised layout suitable for modern day living.
On the first floor, five bedrooms and a bathroom are to be found. Of note are the outstanding views of Bangor from the balcony and the rear bedrooms.
Outside there’s a large driveway, gardens to the front side and rear and a detached garage with an overall site area of 0.086 hectare (0.2 acre).
The property is being offered to the market at a very reasonably price to take into account the need for modernisation and the owners are inviting offers at or over the asking price.
“Grendon” must be viewed in person to fully appreciate its potential, please contact Rea Estates Bangor to arrange a viewing appointment
