Set on a private, elevated position, enjoying stunning views from Down Cathedral to the Mourne Mountains and Dromara Hills. This fine period cottage, set in its own grounds extending to about an acre or thereabouts (additional land available), is situated in a most tranquil and hidden corner of Lecale.
The original cottage, believed to have been built some 200 years ago, combines the charm and character only found in period homes. It has been expertly and tastefully extended some years ago by the vendors, to include a guest annex, and enjoys the exceptional views from many of the rooms.
The accommodation is bright and spacious, and includes a formal drawing room, generous kitchen with 'Aga' and two bedrooms including master suite, en-suite bathroom and dressing room (with potential to convert to third bedroom). Also a cloakroom (with potential to convert to principal bathroom). The guest annex includes two good sized bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen.
A compact range of outbuildings are clustered around the courtyard and provide ample storage and potential for a range of hobby or business purposes if desired.
The gardens to front, side and rear have matured and evolved over many decades to provide a most pleasing setting to the residence. Planted with a fine selection of ornamental and flowering shrubs, a fine stand of native trees stand guard in two corners to enhance the setting.
NOTE: Agricultural lands, extending to up to 17 acres, are located to the residence and are available to purchase in a lot to suit, by separate negotiation.
