Occupying undoubtedly one of the finest addresses and settings in Cultra, this magnificent home enjoys both privacy and superb views from its elevated setting across Belfast Lough to the County Antrim shoreline.

This unique home was designed by popular architect Des Ewing in 1999, and provides substantial accommodation set over 3 floors built by MG Construction.

The location benefits from the many attributes and facilities of the immediate area including seclusion and tranquillity, yet also the convenience to Holywood, Bangor and Belfast. The main Bangor Road is easily accessed via the traffic lights at the nearby Culloden Hotel, and the Cultra Railway Halt is within a few minutes walk providing a regular service for the commuter. Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club, Royal Belfast Golf Club and pleasant coastal walks are all available within minutes.

The property occupies an elevated site with delightful landscaped gardens laid in well tended lawns, mature trees and shrubs and a wrap around driveway with an abundance of parking and turning space. There is a carport connecting to a boathouse with large store / garage on the ground floor and stairs to an office/ playroom / consulting room with separate shower facilities.

The accommodation is of generous proportions and also provides a layout adaptable to differing family requirements.

Undoubtedly, the combination of the unique setting of this home, and the quality, style and accommodation that is offered within will render it as one of the most important houses in Cultra.
