Additional Information

'Hillgrove' was built by the current owners approximately 14 years ago, extending to over 7000 sq. feet and designed by Alan Patterson Architects. Built and designed with great attention to detail and luxury finishes throughout, rarely do homes of this quality come onto the open market.

Situated on an elevated site with this home commands views across Belfast Lough to Slemmish, Scotland and Ailsa Craig. Also benefiting from its close proximity to Holywood, and ease of commuting to Belfast.

The main house consisting of five bedrooms, four with en suite facilities, three reception rooms and a games room with adjacent potential cinema room. As well as excellent accommodation the property has also been designed to be future proofed, incorporating a lift with access to the lower and upper levels. Externally there is an abundance of parking both on the partially heated driveway, parking lawn and the granite cobbled courtyard. At the rear of the property there is also a private patio courtyard, perfect for outdoor entertaining.

There is also potential for further accommodation (subject to necessary consents) with the four-car garage and single garage, which has both ground floor and first floor store rooms, which could become a studio apartment or home office and a first floor two bedroom apartment.

Hillgrove has so much to offer in terms of its accommodation, specification, outbuildings, land, views and location. A home that truly must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
