Additional Information

This stunning, late Georgian, former rectory sits proudly within its own attractive and mature grounds extending to circa 2 acres. It stands on the site of the medieval church of St. Nicholas (built circa 1700) and remnants of the original build can often be found amongst the grounds of the rectory.

Located on the outskirts of Portaferry, this beautiful property is accessed via gates and can only be fully seen as you emerge from under the array of beautifully mature trees surrounding the house from the leafy driveway.

Built in 1818 the house retains most of its original features including timber sash windows throughout and benefits from a beautiful porch leading to the original doorway which has a stunning elliptical fanlight and showcases the house to its full glory.

The two main receptions are well proportioned and are situated off the wide entrance hall. To the rear of the ground floor there are multiple storage rooms, water closet, large kitchen overlooking the beautiful front garden, utility area, pantry, wine cellar and access to the rear courtyard and walled garden. The upper storeys have a large family bathroom and separate water closet, library room, 6 large bedrooms, 2 with an additional room, ripe for conversion to ensuite or dressing area, and a playroom allowing for fully adaptable living accommodation throughout the house.
When the term Old Rectory is used it usually means a very substantial family home, with spacious, elegant principal rooms, high ceilings, abundant period features, shuttered windows, sweeping staircase, outbuildings and walled garden and this property is no exception.

The house was purchased in 1999 and the current owner has begun a scheme to restore the property to its former glory which has paved the way for someone to take over and complete the restoration of this beautiful, unique, historical home.
The Rectory is listed as a Building of Special Architectural and Historic Value (Category B1).
