'The Gables' is a unique and enthralling Tudor Gothic residence with much charm and atmosphere. It is rare that a property of this type and elegance comes on the market.
The quality of this Grade B listed building is superb, with enormous attention to detail and finish. There are wonderful original, authentic details throughout the property including marble fireplaces, panelling, wooden beams and stained glass windows.
In our opinion, 'The Gables' is arguably one of the finest houses in this exclusive area and should be viewed to be really appreciated. It is located on the private Glen Road which leads to the sea and the marvellous North Down coastal walks.
Offering generous accommodation there are four reception rooms, a study, kitchen, separate breakfast room, utility room, sauna and conservatory and five spacious bedrooms upstairs.
