Lavish living

This recently extended home occupies a site of approximately 3 acres in a wonderful location with panoramic views over the rolling countryside.

Sitting on landscaped grounds, this sprawling country home offers the modern family the ultimate luxury lifestyle.

The professionally landscaped private gardens include lawns, terraces and a woodland area, plus a raised paddock which has a separate entrance. Just a few minutes from the popular villages of Killyleagh and Crossgar, the property takes in the views from the Mournes to the South and with glimpses of Strangford Lough and The Quoile River. The landscaped grounds are laid out informally to blend in and compliment the natural beauty of this location.

The exterior of this property is very special, with a lovely stone walled entrance and sweeping pebble driveway which leads to a tarmac courtyard with generous parking at the back of the house where there is a large garage with twin remote-controlled doors.

The standard of finish throughout is exceptional and the interior is both tastefully presented and ultra-contemporary in styling.

Luxury touches abound and include a BEAM vacuum system, sound system, an alarm and CCTV security system.
