Additional InformationWe are delighted to offer for sale one of County Down's most impressive country houses set in beautiful grounds and in a stunning location.
St John's House dates back to the early part of the 19th century and retains much of its original character. It has a host of fine features including large sliding sash windows with panelled shutters, cornicing and fireplaces. Over the years it has been added to and impeccably maintained. A considerable amount of thought and expense has gone into the elegant presentation of the house which has a very homely atmosphere. The generous accommodation will appeal to a family and part of the property would lend itself to being divided off to form a self contained unit.
Outside the beautiful grounds have also been well maintained and complement the surrounding countryside. From the grounds there are views of the lighthouse, down to the sea and across to the Mountains of Mourne. The paddock to the rear will appeal to those with equestrian interests and one of the outbuildings could aslo be converted to stabling.
The property occupies a quiet and private location close to St John's Point Lighthouse and a few minutes from the attractive coastal villages of Killough and Ardglass. This part ot County Down is incredibly beautiful and has much to offer to those with outdoor interests. As well as coastal walk facilities for golf, sailing and horse riding are all within a few minutes. There are good primary schools close by and Downpatrick is less than 15 minutes away offering options for higher level education.
This important sale represents a unique opportunity to live in a stunning period home in a wonderful location. Viewing is strictly by appointment and is highly recommended.
