Additional Information

A simply breath taking lough side residence with unbelievable views over Strangford Lough. With green fields surrounding the rear of the residence, this stunning property is perfectly located for those dreaming of getting away from the hustle and bustle of city living to idyllic surroundings. The property comprises a spacious and luxuriously appointed family home, detached cottage, fantastic gardens and a private slipway to a deep water anchorage directly in front of the house.

The south facing residence, approached via a private road leading to this enjoys breathtaking views of Strangford Lough towards Ringhaddy and Portaferry to the South and the majority of the Ards Peninsula to the East. The islands of Trasnagh, Conly and numerous other smaller islands lie to the front.

Following some work by the current owners, Bullock Port, now includes a fantastically sized kitchen diner with sun balcony to the front, elegant lounge with double doors through to a well appointed family room with stunning views over the Lough and direct access to patio area. The property also benefits from a spacious open plan family area through to ‘Winter Kitchen’ furnished with exclusively designed units by Chalon UK. Furthermore a conservatory flooding the area with natural light leading to outside. 

There are five secondary bedrooms, two of which have en suite bath / shower rooms and a further separate master suite with luxurious bathroom and dressing area, opening onto a private decking area. All the principal rooms face the Lough taking advantage of the exceptional views.

An enclosed patio area, flagged in sandstone, is accessed from the principal reception rooms with access to a remarkable rooftop balcony, ideal for summer entertaining and access to one of the secondary bedrooms.

A beautifully finished two storied cottage, the Boat House, lies adjacent to the residence and enjoys the same breathtaking views, providing excellent alternative accommodation for visitors or the older family member.

The landscaped gardens at the front are expertly laid out, incorporating lawns, well stocked beds of ornamental and flowering shrubs, pebble edged flagged path and patios and raised timber decks designed to maximise the Lough views.

Strangford Lough Yacht Club and Down Cruising Club are but a few minutes walk away, making this an exceptional opportunity for the keen yachtsman. Golfing is also well served in the area with Mahee and Ringdufferin Golf Courses just a short drive away. Along with the fantastic Daft Eddy's restaurant, this property has alot to offer on your doorstep.

Ideal location for those looking that rural home but with Belfast only a short drive away you can have all of the benefits of both worlds. Sure to attract plenty of interest please get in touch with Aria Residential to arrange a viewing today.
