Additional InformationUndoubtedly one of County Down's most impressive period homes - 'The Grey House' occupies an elevated site on the Craigavad coastline with uninterrupted views across Belfast Lough to the County Antrim shoreline.
'The Grey House' is located in one of Northern Ireland's most sought after residential areas in the heart of the mature Cultra / Craigavad area. The beach and shoreline are just minutes away, with pleasant walks to Holywood and Bangor along the coastal path. There are many sporting facilities available within close proximity including Royal Belfast Golf Club and Royal North of Ireland Yacht Club. Yet whilst the coastal setting and mature wooded backdrop of Craigavad provide both a breathtaking environment and peaceful setting, the location also benefits from the traffic lights at the top of the Station Road providing easy access to the main Bangor Road, and giving easy access to Holywood (5 minutes), Bangor (10 minutes), and Belfast (20 minutes). Belfast City Airport is within 15 minutes drive and a nearby railway halt provides a regular service to Bangor and Belfast. The area is also well served with an excellent range of Primary and Grammar Schools.
Dating back to 1853, 'The Grey House' is a most attractive listed (Grade B1) Victorian residence offering a wealth of superbly appointed accommodation with a layout adaptable to differing family requirements.
The property has been extensively restored in recent years and is maintained to an impeccable standard both internally and externally. The property retains many original features including high ornate corniced ceilings, and magnificent fireplaces.
Approached by a sweeping driveway, the property is set within pristine grounds extending to approximately 2.2 acres laid in well tended lawns, mature landscaped shrub beds, a secluded southwest facing patio area, and an all weather tennis court.
All in all, the sale of 'The Grey House' represents a unique opportunity to acquire a magnificent restored, listed private residence occupying one of the best sites on the North Down coastline.
