Located close to the shores of Strangford Lough "Rose Cottage" is neatly positioned along the lesser travelled Abbacy Road on the outskirts of Portaferry. We take great pleasure in offering for sale this adorable stone cottage which is certain to capture the imagination of many prospective buyers.

Beautifully set amidst the surrounding farmland of the Newtownards peninsula, "Rose Cottage" is well placed to enjoy all the attributes of rural living, yet still within a comfortable commuting distance to Belfast, Lisburn and Downpatrick via the Strangford ferry in Portaferry town, as well as amenities within the greater Strangford Lough Lecale Area.

The cottage has been fully restored and extended in recent years and provides neat accommodation in the form of: lounge with beautiful exposed stone fireplace and wood burning stove, the deluxe fitted kitchen/ dining room offers a range of Cream units a Rayburn range cooker and holds stunning views over the rear garden. There is one double bedroom with walk in wardrobe, vaulted ceiling and a luxury shower room.

There are extremely well stocked cottage gardens to the side and rear of the property, on a level site and provide lawns, established trees, hedging and borders planted in shrubs and bushes. Further to the rear there is a circa 1 acre field currently laid in grass and accessed via a field gate. The field would lend itself to clients wishing to begin a cottage garden and provide your own fruit and vegetables, to be planted in a wild flower meadow or offers the opportunity to graze animals. Another use may be to tap into the rapidly developing local tourism industry, whether the business is camping, glamping pods or providing an outdoor activity which blends into the countryside seamlessly, subject to approvals. A good sized gravel drive provides off road parking and holds a log store and custom built timber shed.

In addition the garden room offers further self-contained accommodation comprising of fitted kitchen and lounge area plus modern en-suite facility which could of course provide an income stream from the likes of Air B&B, subject to approvals.
