"The Orchard" – a substantial detached family residence dating back to c. 1925 occupying a mature site extending to approximately 1.1 acres.
The property is located in the heart of one of Northern Ireland's most sought after locations – Cultra. Whilst the local environs can offer a mature sylvan setting, the property is well located with Holywood town centre within five minutes, Belfast City Centre (15 minutes), Belfast City Airport (10-12 minutes), Bangor (10 minutes) and Cultra Railway Halt is also within a 10 minute walk.
The location also enjoys many recreational and sporting amenities within close proximity. The Cultra shoreline, beach and coastal walks are only minutes away at the foot of the Glen Road. Royal Belfast Golf Club and Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club are both within five minute's drive. A good range of primary and grammar schools are also available within the immediate area.
The house is well presented throughout with ground floor accommodation consisting of; entrance hall, morning room, drawing room, dining room, playroom, kitchen with casual dining area, utility room, pantry and cloakroom with wc. On the first floor are six bedrooms and three bathrooms, a study and store.
Outside this unique property there are large landscaped gardens with an abundance of colourful flowerbeds, mature trees and a pathway through the gardens which attract all day sun.
There are two detached garages, a secure outbuilding and private parking & turning space with electrically operated gates.
With the Airport and Belfast City centre under 10 miles away & Holywood town centre only a short drive, convenience is key to Cultra, which is one of the many reasons why it is the area most consistently in demand and the most exclusive in the province.
