Nature lovers will love the idyllic setting of this unique property which is just a short stroll from the shores of Strangford Lough.

The part-thatched home is teaming with rustic charm and is laid out around a lovely courtyard with an extensive range of outbuildings.

The Stables enjoys a peaceful location in Killinchy with an abundance of birdlife and wildlife on the doorstep.

Close by are a number of superb eateries at Lisbane, Comber and Balloo worth exploring plus Strangford Lough Yacht club is also nearby.

Inside is a bespoke home full of character with exposed timbers and brick and large open, spacious rooms which look out over the countryside.

There are three bedrooms, two reception rooms, plus a study and two bathrooms including an en suite.

The house has a quaint country style to the exterior and a stable door opens into an entrance porch with quarry tiled floor which in turn takes you to a lovely hallway with natural strip wood floor and original beamed ceiling.

Step into the magnificent living room and you get an immediate wow factor.

This huge space features a wonderful open pitched ceiling with original exposed supporting beams setting off a room bursting with character. One end of the room features a natural stone wall while a wooden staircase rises to the first floor at the opposite end.

There is a quaint inglenook brick fireplace with raised hearth and cast iron wood burning stove all tied together with natural wood strip flooring.

Also on the ground floor are a study and a spacious conservatory with stone floor and double doors opening onto the garden.

The kitchen is pure country chic again finished with a stone floor and featuring a beamed ceiling and handmade farmhouse style oak units with solid wood work surfaces. Another spacious room, it is accessed via traditional style double wooden doors from the living room and easily accommodates a good sized dining table.

In true rural style, there is an Esse range with two gas rings, a Villeroy & Boch enamel double Belfast sink and a dishwasher and fridge/freezer.

Just off the kitchen is a utility room with a storage cupboard and worktops.

The rustic look continues in the bedrooms which all have quaint pitched ceilings with beams and the master comes with a good sized walk in wardrobe and en suite bathroom.

There is also a beautifully finished modern shower room.

Outside there is also much to offer and the extensive range of courtyard outbuildings has heaps of potential for anyone with business acumen. The setting is ideal for holiday cottage lets.

There is also a pretty, enclosed private garden at the back.
