The accommodation comprises an entrance porch, sun room, an impressive reception hall with ornate stairway, cloakroom, drawing room, dining room, study, a fully fitted kitchen with casual dining area, boot room and utility room, with separate games room.

The first floor rooms have either an aspect over Holywood Golf Course, or views over Holywood to Belfast Lough.

Outside, there are mature gardens to the front and rear laid in lawns with mature border shrub beds. All in all, an exceptional family home in a private mature setting, with a wealth of generously proportioned and well appointed accommodation. Viewing is by private appointment and highly recommended.
