Look inside: £1.4m mansion in Cultra on the market


A magnificent mansion in Cultra has come onto the property market with a price tag of £1.4m. With beautiful views across Belfast Lough, touches of luxury throughout its interior and a postcode to envy, this property has everything needed for an idyliic lifestyle along the North Down coastline.

Resting in one of Northern Ireland’s most sought after locations, this house – known as The Craig – is only a few miles outside Belfast, offering a tranquil location for working commuters to reside.

Michael Young, partner and director at estate agency Templeton Robinson, said: “It’s in a lovely spot, right in the heart of Cultra, which brings with it all the benefits of living in one of the most beautiful locations in Northern Ireland.

“We’re excited to bring such a wonderful home to the market. It’s a good sized, modern family home in a really popular location.”

Although it is priced at £1.4m, Mr Young believes this mansion in Cultra will soon be snapped up.

“It’s not too often something like this comes on to the market and there’s already been quite a bit of interest,” he added.

The cosy reception room, complete with a wood-burning stove, is the perfect place to spend a chilly winter evening. A formal drawing room opens to an exquisite sun room that offers views across the landscaped gardens and vistas of Belfast Lough.

Luxury touches include underfloor heating, a central vacuum system, air circulation and surround sound, all which combine to help in every day life.

The contemporary, fully-fitted kitchen is open to a casual dining and family area. Four reception areas provide plenty of spaces to unwind on the ground floor.

A spacious first floor landing is accessed via an oak staircase. Five bedrooms and two ensuite facilities are found on the first floor. One of the bedrooms is currently serving as an office. The master bedroom also benefits from a walk-in wardrobe.

Each bedroom is a feature in its own right with beautifully designed windows allowing natural light to illuminate the area.

Character and individuality is created through the sloping roofs and angular ceilings throughout the interior.

Mr Young added: “Cultra has always been one of the most popular areas. You’re right next to Holywood’s bustling centre, Cultra railway halt takes you directly into central Belfast, then there’s a quiet stroll to the shoreline. This property offers everything you could wish for.”

For those who can pull themselves away from the delights of the home, the Royal Belfast Golf Club, the Culloden Hotel and Spa and the Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club are close-by.

Mr Young said: “Priced at £1.4m, it will obviously attract a certain type of buyer, but what they’ll be getting for their money is a very private location with some stunning views over Belfast Lough.

“Added to that there’s all the benefits of a modern home, the warmth, the energy efficiency that you wouldn’t get from older properties in the area.

“What we are finding though is that the area has undergone quite a transformation in the last few years. The homes around the area are becoming a lot more modern and a lot more desirable, with many of the older properties also having undergone a facelift. It’s also quite rare to find a home with such stunning views across Belfast Lough to be in such a private location, so that will obviously be a major selling point for interested parties.

“It’s simply a stunning home in a stunning location.”
