A RARE opportunity to buy a stunning country house set in seven acres with three upmarket holiday cottages is on offer with the sale of Whitethorn House.

Set in seven acres this unique sale also includes a range of outbuildings and a yard, plus extension gardens and a large detached garage big enough to be converted to another dwelling.

Whitethorne House is a beautiful property with five bedrooms, master with en suite and three spacious reception rooms, hand-crafted kitchen, utility room, luxury bathroom and shower room.

The cottages each have two bedrooms, master with en suite and open plan ground floor living with luxury fitted kitchens.

Whitethorn House is finished to a very high specification with panelled internal doors and the main rooms look out towards the extensive gardens and beyond to Strangford Lough and Scrabo Tower.

A magnificent reception hall with oak flooring and ornate corniced ceiling leads to an impressive oak staircase and galleried landing.

The living room has been part divided to form a formal dining area to the rear with French doors opening to the kitchen and another set of French doors opening to a spacious sun room.

The kitchen is well fitted with an extensive range of painted cabinets under an oak wood block work surface with inset double sink and a central island unit with built-in breakfast bar.

Fitted appliances include an oil-fired Aga and recess for range cooker, integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher, all with matching wall-mounted cabinets.

On the first floor there are three generously proportioned double bedrooms, master with en suite dressing room and shower room and a family bathroom. On the second floor there are two further double bedrooms, both served by a luxury bathroom. Overall the accommodation extends to approximately 4,200 sq ft.

Outside, the property is approached over a concrete drive with a loose stone sweep to the front, with extensive parking to one side and in front of the garage block where there is also a large workshop area and a car port for several cars.

The grounds include a six-acre paddock to the south of the house which is complemented by a bank of trees along the western boundary.

To the front there is an extensive terrace with steps that lead down to the lawns adorned by mature shrubs.

Whitethorn Cottages are described by the Belfast Welcome Centre as a sensational offer and luxury accommodation, approved by the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.
