Looking out over Belfast Lough, this luxury Holywood home enjoys privacy in one of the town’s most sought after areas.

Located off Holywood’s Church Road is 6 Plas Merdyn, a hidden gem dating back to 1890 with stunning views across Belfast Lough.

This house has been handsomely renovated for modern living while still retaining many of its original features such as decorative plasterwork, high cornice ceilings, original fireplaces and staircases.

This residence offers a lavish 3,700 sq. ft. of space with many of its room featuring views of the Lough.

Set over three floors, each room is finished to the highest standard including the five bedrooms and five reception rooms.

The hallway is steeped in history and offers an insight into how grand and charming it was in its day. This dwelling has kept the original panel doors and strip flooring.

The drawing room is magnificent with two great windows, one a vast feature bay while the other looks out over Belfast Lough. A carved wooden fireplace with gas stove and brick inset sits pride of place in this room while the attractive panelled walls and decorative plaster works calls for your attention also.

This same panelling is also seen in the charming sitting room which again features a great bay window and painted wooden fireplace.

The bespoke kitchen opens into a family dining room and a living area via an exquisite archway.

This luxurious kitchen is fitted with bespoke Robinson’s units with a similar central island and work tops. This rooms features a range of integrated Neff appliances including an oven, a four-ring induction hob, an AEG dishwasher and built-in fridge.

The family room sits at the heart of this property with a rustic sandstone fireplace and wood burning stove resting on solid oak strip flooring.

Plas Merdyn also holds two studies with Lough views, a dining room and utility room. There is also another cloakroom with WC and a large gym/games room.
