The Thornyhill Road is a beautiful, much sought after semi-rural residential location which whilst enjoying all the attributes of country living, the site is within walking distance of the hamlets of Balloo and Killinchy offering local amenities, 10 minutes from Comber, Killyleagh, and Ballygowan, and 25 minutes from Belfast. The Strangford Lough shoreline, Whiterock Bay and Sketrick Island are also less than 10 minutes away.
Planning permission has been granted for a substantial detached family dwelling, extending to over 5,500 Sq Ft with garaging of approx. 2,000 Sq Ft, sitting on an overall site of 12.35 acres. In addition, there is an old stone cottage (with original turf burning fireplace and "crane" still in situ) within the confines of the site, which could ideally be rethatched and potentially be used to provide additional income ( i.e. Air B"n"B). Alternatively, it could be used for granny accommodation, teenager pad etc., (subject to relevant permissions). Both the cottage and the shed /workshop beside it are serviced with electric and water.
The site is approached via a partly tarmac avenue lined on both sides with mature trees and some dry-stone walling. The trees are under planted with a variety of shrubs and spring flowering bulbs (such as daffodils, crocuses, primroses etc.). There is an orchard that has been planted out with a mix of apple trees including cider, cooking and eating varieties. There are also more than a dozen "Victoria" plum trees, and a raised bed vegetable garden. One field has been planted out in native trees while the others have a natural stream running through them. The garage is currently under construction and electricity and water are already on site. The site is bounded on all sides by either dry stone walling or mature native hedging. The property would be suited to someone with equestrian interests.
