Additional Information

This is a unique property steeped in intrigue and history, and oozing quality and comfort. It is one of six apartments which were created from Ardara House, the original family home of the Andrews family. It sits at the end of a winding driveway, in beautifully maintained grounds.

Ardara House was constructed in 1875 by Sir Thomas Andrews for his family. Thomas Andrews Jnr became the managing director, and the chief naval architect, of Harland and Wolff, and was the designer of the world famous RMS Titanic.

The Titanic Suite is the result of a sympathetic conversion from the original house. This luxury two bedroom apartment offers a wealth of character and historical charm, with feature height ceilings and ornate cornicing.

Externally the communal gardens have been beautifully landscaped and are laid in lawns with a colourful array of mature planting and trees. There is also access to an allocated covered carport with light and power to the rear of the property.

The location is within a short distance from Comber town centre which offers a varied range of local amenities, shops and restaurants. The location also boasts ease of access to the main routes for commuting to Belfast, Bangor and Newtownards. George Best Belfast City Airport, The Ulster Hospital, David Lloyd Fitness Centre, Parliament Buildings at Stormont and Dundonald Village only a short drive away.

This is a unique opportunity to purchase a slice of Northern Ireland history with a property which oozes quality, with abundant character and charm, and well-proportioned, easily managed accommodation.
