Craigy House is ideally situated about 1.9 miles from the former market town of Saintfield, providing a good selection of local amenities, shops and public services. The immediate surroundings and setting is typical of rolling Co. Down drumlins, looking towards the Mourne Mountains and Dromara Hills. There are good transport connections close by connecting to many of the top schools in Belfast and the surrounding district. Access to the M1 & A1 motorways is a 20 minute drive away.


Craigy House is an exceptional quality well equipped former dairy farm with substantial Victorian farmhouse residence, farm manager house and 175.8 acres or thereabouts of arable / stock rearing lands. The farm has historically carried a productive dairy herd of approximately 240 cows, only recently have the owners retired and currently run the farm as a stock rearing unit.

The parlour has been decommissioned with the cubicle housing, silos, concrete yards, bull pens, dairy and parlour building ready for recommissioning.

The farm land, largely contained in one block with approximately 30 acres on the opposite side of the county road, subdivided into substantial sized fields, served by hard-core laneways and mains water to drinking troughs running through the farm

The farmstead is located in the centre of the farm, with the farm managers house close by.

The farmhouse, believed to be of random stone construction with rendered exterior, is fitted with oil fired heating and double glazing and offers spacious, well appointed reception rooms, farmhouse kitchen, laundry room and office at ground floor with five bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. Generous mature landscaped gardens provide a pleasing setting to the residence.

The farm managers house includes 1 reception, 3 bedrooms, kitchen, laundry room and bathroom, with oil fired heating fitted. The property is approached from a separate side driveway to the private yard with compact range of outbuildings.

An ancient standing stone set on an elevated position in one field overlooking the farm, is believed to be connected with the Battle of Saintfield of 1798.


Three small copses totalling about 3.2 acres are planted in mixed deciduous trees providing shelter and a natural haven for wildlife.
