Property Description

This idyllic detached family cottage is part of the Glenganagh Estate on the eastern outskirts of Bangor in Ballyholme. The deceptively spacious home is set on a private, mature site overlooking Ballyholme Bay and the Co. Antrim headlands towards Scotland, some of the finest views in North Down.

The accommodation consists of an entrance hall, a drawing room with feature fireplace which is open to a fitted study and a snug room. There is a formal dining room to the front and a living area with multi fuel burning stove to the rear, a utility room, ground floor shower room and a recently fitted hand painted kitchen with large island unit and built in appliances.

Upstairs there are four double bedrooms, a built in study area and a family bathroom with ball in claw ornate bath and separate shower cubicle.

This is undoubtedly one of the more unique homes in the North Down area, the views and the privacy are special and so are the grounds. The gardens are enclosed by a private stone wall with ample woodland areas, patio areas, parking and turning space for several cars and level front lawns with exceptional views.

With Ballyholme bay on the doorstep and easy access to North Down, Ballyholme and Donaghadee centres, Bangor, Holywood and the City centre, convenience is key.

All in all this is a unique home with beautiful gardens and amazing views.

Viewing is strictly by private appointment.
