Rarely does such a property of this stature come onto the open market. We have great pleasure in presenting 'Goblins Green', 7 Main Bentra Road, Whitehead. Approached via a sweeping driveway this stunning Gentlemen's Residence is situated on a beautiful 2 acre site bordered by mature trees and hedging. Architecturally designed and constructed in 1965 this impressive property boasts a wealth of well proportioned family accommodation extending to just under 4000 sq. ft. with many original features including high ornate corniced ceilings and a sweeping gallery staircase.
The well planned reception accommodation offers formal drawing room leading to a large dining area, extensive open plan kitchen/casual dining and sun lounge through to a separate family room. The ground floor also offers a master/guest bedroom with en-suite which could be easily utilized as a separate annex for visitors or an elderly relative. All of these spaces have been cleverly thought out as they look out onto a fabulous sun terrace and extensive south facing lawned garden.
The first floor offers a further three well proportioned bedrooms and bathroom suite with Spa bath. Of particular note is the most impressive master bedroom with breathtaking views over the grounds and towards Belfast Lough.
Whilst enjoying all the attributes of country living the location could not be more convenient with access to both Whitehead, Carrickfergus and Larne only minutes away by car and ideal for commuters travelling to Belfast.
Externally the property offers a double garage and two loose boxes which may also appeal to those with equestrian interests. The mature private site comes with an abundance of plants, trees and shrubs.
