Additional Information

This could be a perfect property for a change of lifestyle, either as a weekend and holiday home or for a more permanent move.  The coastal position is idyllic and the property, although originally a fishermans cottage dating back over 200 years, was converted into a family home around 36 years ago by extension and joining it to the adjacent gospel hall which now houses two of the four bedrooms.  The property is approached by a country lane and there is direct access on to the shore from the front garden.  You can imagine a family living here with surf boards and kayaks lying in the grass for use at high tide and you can also picture special seaside barbeques with family and friends, followed by a walk along the shoreline and beach to Portavogie.  The view to the front is ever changing with fishing boats, yachts and ferries traversing the Irish sea with the coast of Galloway and the Isle of Man visible in the distance on a clear day.

The property itself is a great size and has been re-wired recently and the plumbing has been upgraded.  The original part of the house dates back 200 years and retains the cottage feel with beamed ceilings and the accomodation extends to three reception rooms, kitchen, utility room, four bedrooms, one with an en suite wetroom and family bathroom. 

The property is located on the east coast of the Ards Peninsula facing the Irish Sea, midway between Portavogie and Ballyhalbert, 15 miles from Newtownards, 18 Miles from Bangor and just 9 miles from Portaferry.
