This 19th century former Coach House offers stylish living in the heart of Holywood.
Situated just a short and pleasant stroll from Holywood's vibrant town centre it enjoys a quiet spot, tucked away at the end of a highly regarded cul-de-sac.
The house has complete privacy and is accessed via double electric gates which lead to a sunny walled courtyard.
The internal layout has been cleverly designed to create a comfortable, contemporary home that blends perfectly with the period exterior.
Every inch of this home has been finished to the highest standard and there is an elegant air about it as you tour its many beautiful rooms.
