Location Appeal – History at Home


Enjoy the good life in this beautiful country cottage.

SITTING close to Strangford Lough in the quiet Hamlet of Ballyculter, Mill House offers a lifestyle that many dream of.

Located just a couple of miles from Strangford village there are endless opportunities to enjoy the outdoor life.

Coastal walks, sailing and golf are all close at hand and the historic 18th century Castle Ward house and gardens are a mere stone’s throw away.

The house itself is a stunning home which has recently undergone a first class renovation and extension programme.

The owners have been careful to retain the property’s original cottage charm while creating extra space and light for modern family living.

It sits on a private site looking out over mature gardens and the rolling fields beyond.

Part of the house’s historic past can be seen in the nearby brick chimney from the old flax mill where original occupants of the house would have worked.

Tasteful design has created a charming home with a stable door opening into the entrance hall where exposed timber heads hark back to the origins of the property.

There is a separate shower room with a modern white suite.

The space under the stairs has been turned into a cosy office.

The lounge is a spacious and charming light filled room with a multi fuel stove set on a raise hearth with a granite mantle.

Reclaimed mahogany strip flooring runs through to an open country kitchen with casual dining area.

This is another large room with a porcelain tiled floor and French windows opening onto the garden.

A range of hand painted kitchen units are the perfect fit for the style of the house and there is a Rangemaster range cooker plus fridge/freezer and dishwasher.

There is also a separate utility room with a door leading to a rear yard area.

Upstairs a bright, spacious landing is beautifully styled with an exposed stone feature wall and natural wood flooring.

Three of the four bedrooms are finished with pine floors and the master has walk in wardrobes.

The bathroom is contemporary with a bath and large shower enclosure with modern wall and floor tiling.

There is lovely feature glass shelving and a chrome towel rail.

The property is geared up for outdoor living with a garage/ workshop, greenhouse, garden shed, yard area and formal gardens with fruit trees, a herb garden and a bank leading down to a stream.
