FOR SALE AS A WHOLE OR IN LOTS
An exceptional, Regency residence set in its own land extending to about 39.3 acres or thereabouts, positioned on a private, slightly elevated site with uninterrupted views of Ringneil Bay and Strangford Lough.
The residence, dated 1832 with more recent additions is thought to have been built alongside a more modest residence constructed by John Barry circa 1782.
The property, which is ideally located between Comber and Killinchy, provides a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial home on the shores of Strangford Lough. It is a short commute to Belfast, George Best Belfast City Airport and many top grammar schools in the surrounding area, and has a fine selection of fine-dining restaurants, golf clubs, yacht clubs, and sporting facilities in the immediate area.
Internally the accommodation on two floors retains many of its original Regency features, and improved to create generous reception rooms - ideal for family life and entertaining on a generous scale if desired.
Most pleasing features include the garden room at first floor level opening onto the elevated terrace enjoying exceptional views over the gardens and down to the Lough.
Original cornice, centre ceiling roses, folding shutters to many windows are just some of the features which enhance and grace the principal rooms.
Externally the yard is enclosed with a closely grouped selection of stabling, stores, cattle housing, hayshed, workshop and spacious loft (previously used for bowling and ideal for parties) and provides great facilities to service the agricultural lands.
The lands surround the residence and yard and are currently laid down to grass. The lands are thought to be equally suitable for grazing, cutting, production of arable and vegetable crops, and enjoy the benefit of what is believed to be a micro climate which provides an almost frost free climate throughout the year which renders the area ideal for growing a wide range of crops.
The owners of the property enjoy the right of taking seaweed from the foreshore, the property of the Crown.
