RURAL BLISS – A fine country mansion with sea views.
Nestled among two acres of beautiful mature grounds this impressive country home enjoys an idyllic setting with wonderful views over Belfast Lough.
The extensive landscaped gardens offer a tranquil escape from the outside world and also within the grounds is a detached cottage which has been recently renovated and features a lounge, conservatory, kitchen/diner, three bedrooms and a bathroom.
This is a get-away-from-it-all retreat where you can relax and play with your own competition sized squash court or pursue horse riding with your own stables.
Available as one or two lots, the property has an additional acreage of maintained and serviced agricultural lands split into two sections of 15 and 12 acres which can be bought separately.
Both land holdings have small plantations of oak trees to encourage wildlife in the area.
The house itself offers endless options for family living with lots of unique interior features.
There are four generous reception rooms, a family kitchen with casual dining and living areas, five bedrooms, master with en suite bathroom, a further shower room, large walk-in pantry, utility and storage rooms.
