Additional Information

'Beechbank' undoubtedly one of County Down's landmark country houses with its elevated setting enjoying a south westerly aspect and extensive views over rolling County Down countryside.
'Beechbank' is set in grounds extending to c. 6 acres, and whilst enjoying all of the attributes of country living, the property is within walking distance of the hamlets of Balloo and Killinchy offering local amenities, and 10 minutes from Comber, Killyleagh, and Ballygowan; and 25 minutes from Belfast. The Strangford Lough shoreline and Whiterock Bay, Sketrick Island are also less than 10 minutes away.
Dating back to c. 1790 the property was sympathetically restored and extended 10 years ago, and now offers extensive accommodation with a layout adoptable to differing family requirements.
On the ground floor, the accommodation comprises a Reception Hall, Drawing Room, Living Room, Country Kitchen with Aga, open to Garden Room (overlooking rear courtyard and gardens), Pantry, Utility Room, Study, Rear Hallway, and Cloakroom / WC.
On the first floor, there are four Bedrooms including a magnificent Master Bedroom Suite with Dressing Room and Ensuite Bathroom, and a Family Bathroom to service the other bedrooms.
From the rear hallway, a secondary stairway leads to a self-contained suite which currently comprises a playroom and guest bedroom with ensuite shower room. This area could readily be adapted for use as a self-contained Granny Flat, or teenagers / au pair's suite.
The property is set amidst well tended landscaped gardens with an upper equestrian yard providing excellent stabling, a barn, tack room, garage, and an all weather floodlit ménage.
Whilst the overall holding extends to c. 6 acres, there are two excellent fields accessed from the upper yard extending to 2.7 acres and 2.0 acres ideal for horses.
All in all, a superbly restored country house in a most sought after and accessible area of County Down.
Viewing is by private appointment, and is highly recommended.
