'Grangefield' is situated in undoubtedly one of County Down's most sought after semi-rural locations with its elevated setting and extensive views over rolling County Down countryside to Belfast Lough.

'Grangefield' is set in grounds extending to c. 33.5 acres, and whilst enjoying all of the attributes of country living, the property is only a 5 minute drive to Holywood, 10 minutes to Bangor and 10 minutes to Belfast. The Belfast Lough shoreline is also only 5 minutes away where you can enjoy pleasant coastal walks to Holywood and Bangor.

Dating back to c. 1840 the property was sympathetically restored and extended, and now offers extensive accommodation with a layout adoptable to differing family requirements.

On the ground floor, the accommodation comprises a Reception Hall, Drawing Room, Dining Room, Living Room, Country Kitchen with Aga, Garden Room with double doors out to the terrace and gardens, Play Room, Pantry, Utility Room, and Cloakroom / WC. On the first floor, there are five Bedrooms including a magnificent Master Bedroom Suite with Dressing Room and Ensuite Bathroom, Bedroom Two also benefits from an ensuite and a Family Bathroom to service the other bedrooms.

Outside there is an original stone barn that has outline planning permission to be converted to a self-contained annex. This area is ideal for use as a Granny Flat, teenagers / au pair's suite or as a home office space. The property is set amidst extensive grounds with an array of outbuildings and an area that was once a sand school. Whilst the overall holding extends to c. 33.5 acres, this property sits nestled in its own private mature gardens.

All in all, a superb country residence in a most sought after and accessible area of County Down.
Viewing is by private appointment, and is highly recommended.
