This is a rare opportunity to rent a detached family home of circa 5,000 sq ft, located between Holywood and Helens Bay with Circa 3 acres of land, a range of outbuildings and a sheltered courtyard, all with stunning panoramic views over Belfast Lough and the County Antrim Hills.
The house is featured around the central courtyard on one side and the panoramic Belfast Lough views to the front. The accommodation is arranged over two floors. From the spacious entrance hall there is the double glazed conservatory and a library which leads to the spacious drawing room. On the other side of the hall there is a living room which opens to the dining / family room with stunning views, and the fully fitted kitchen with dining area. The rear hallway leads past the utility room and home office to a large playroom / bar / reception area which has a secondary staircase to the first floor. At the top of the main staircase there is a minstrel gallery overlooking the reception hall which leads to the spacious master suite with bathroom and dressing area. There are three further bedrooms, a family bathroom and a home office / playroom with access to the ground floor by the secondary staircase.
With Belfast City centre only 15 minutes away by road or rail, Holywood only 5 minutes and Bangor 10 minutes, the convenience to North Down is fantastic, and we recommend viewing without hesitation.
