A beautifully presented extended detached cottage style residence set on a delightful mature private rural site with native tree planted front boundary and river, set in this highly desirable location just a short drive from Lisbane Village.
Internally this excellent family home offers superbly appointed, deceptively spacious, adaptable accommodation with natural Oak and stained timber floors, solid wood doors and timber beams which all help to create this home full of character and cottage charm. The current layout provides potential for a self-contained 'apartment' and the converted roof space, complete with lighting and heating provides a quality office space or study.
The mature southerly facing gardens are laid in lawns with native tree planting which provide a good degree of privacy and shelter. Several well positioned patios take advantage of both the morning and evening sun, perfect for family barbeques and entertaining.
Located in a rural yet convenient location between Comber and Lisbane with the popular Old Post Office tea rooms and award winning Poachers Pocket restaurant close at hand. Good access to the bus and commuter routes to renowned schools in Comber, Newtownards and Belfast.
This most appealing home must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
