Circa 1900, Ardkeen Cottage served as residence of the gardener of Ardkeen House. Beautifully manicured and well stocked country gardens enjoy complete privacy and are well orientated for the sun's path and wonderful sunsets. A deceiving property at first glance this family home offers four double bedrooms including master bedroom with en suite shower room.

Internally there is an airy bright feel to the home which is tastefully decorated throughout with a high standard of fixtures and fittings including a family kitchen incorporating AGA range and ample dining space. There is a tasteful of wooden flooring to the family room with cast iron stove and sleeper beam mantel and wooden floor to the drawing room/dining room, again with cast iron stove, and French doors that lead to the rear patio and delightful gardens. Further benefits include fitted utility room, Lough and rural views from the upper levels and a welcoming entrance to the property through the sun room. With ample parking to the driveway and a large detached garage where a planning application has been made to convert the garage to a self-contained one-bedroom apartment over two levels. This could be ideal for a live-in relative or potential as Airbnb investment.

The semi-rural location provides all the benefits of the countryside lifestyle, with views to Craigantlet's rolling countryside and to Belfast Lough, yet this tranquil setting is only five minutes' drive of Holywood town centre, provides easy commuting to Bangor, Newtownards, Belmont and Dundonald. Belfast city centre and George Best City Airport are within twenty minutes' drive.
