Property Description


The sale of this prime one acre waterfront site represents one of the few remaining opportunities to acquire an undeveloped site on the North Down coastline between Cultra and Helen's Bay.

The site has an extensive frontage of approximately 118 metres to the coastal path and commands completely uninterrupted views across Belfast Lough stretching from Belfast, along the County Antrim shoreline, to Scotland.

In recent years, some of the finest contemporary and traditionally designed new homes in Northern Ireland have been built in the North Down area which would be at the pinnacle of the Northern Ireland housing Market. The continued confidence in this area has also underpinned house values in this most exclusive residential area.

Whilst the tree lined Glen Road provides a most attractive approach to this coastal site, the location could not be more convenient with coastal walks literally on your door step extending to Holywood, Helen's Bay and Bangor. Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club and Royal Belfast Golf Club are also within walking distance.

For the commuter, Holywood is only five minutes away, Bangor,10 minutes, and Belfast 15 minutes.

The nearby railway halt also provides a regular service to Belfast and Bangor, and Belfast City Airport is within 10 minutes drive.

All in all, an exceptional opportunity to acquire one of the best waterfront building sites in the highly sought after North Down area.
