Standing proud among stunning mature gardens on an elevated site, this impressive home enjoys beautiful views across Strangford Lough.
It sits in an idyllic spot which is further enhanced by the wonderful gardens which extend to ¬ of an acre.
Nestled in the Ringdufferin area just past Balloo House you can enjoy peace and privacy here while being close to coastal walks, boat clubs and easy commuting distance to Belfast and Downpatrick.
The house is teaming with bespoke features and there is real sense of space and light inside with an excellent presentation and lots of luxury.
The extensive accommodation includes a lounge, dining room, study, a fantastic open plan kitchen/living/dining room open to a superb sun room, a cloakroom, utility, games room, four bedrooms, two with en suite and the master with a walk in dressing room, plus a family bathroom.
Approaching the property you get a sense of the tranquillity it enjoys as you drive past the stunning mature grounds.
A veranda style porch leads into the entrance hall which is very impressive with a solid oak staircase, Chinese slate flooring and tongue and groove ceiling.
A door opens from the hall onto a secluded patio.
