Magnificent detached country residence with additional self contained annex, range of stone outbuildings, enclosed yard, and manicured gardens measuring circa 7 acres
Additional land available by separate negotiation
The property is set in circa 7 acres including manicured gardens that contain a beautiful walled garden and morning sun terrace. Positioned behind automated gates, the property enjoys considerable privacy whilst the location is convenient to main arterial routes.
Finished to an exacting standard by the current owners, the home was constructed in 2005 by highly renowned builders Gilbert Ash, using top quality materials and craftsmanship which is apparent throughout the home. The well-proportioned family accommodation features elegant sandstone fireplaces, bespoke plasterwork detailing and a gracious hand carved oak staircase and flooring throughout.
Whilst the setting of ‘Ardnabrac’ enjoys complete privacy the property is conveniently located between Comber and Dundonald right in the heart of the Co. Down countryside yet within easy commuting distance of Belfast City Centre and less than 10 minutes from Stormont, the Ulster Hospital and some of Belfast’s leading schools.
All in all a magnificent country home enjoying all the style and grandeur of a period home, yet benefiting from all the comforts and luxuries of modern day living.
