Description

 This delightful and distinctive detached family home, dating back to circa 1870, is set on a superb mature site just on the outskirts of Balloo village.


This deceptively spacious cottage-style home definitely has ‘kerb appeal’ and has been much admired for its feature veranda to the front. The property is full of character and charm, with many of the original features retained.  It has been sympathetically extended and adapted over the years, creating a home ideal for a growing family.

The impressive private side garden enjoys a pleasing southerly aspect.  It is mostly laid in lawns and enclosed by mature hedging, shrubbery and native trees, creating a haven for children, family pets and 
entertaining.

The property is conveniently located within easy walking distance of Balloo village, which offers a variety of local amenities including the renowned Balloo House Restaurant, local farmshop and butchers, convenience store, post office and coffee shop, along with the Crafty Fox gift shop. Bus stops within 200 yards of the property provide quick and easy access to the city, along with school services to popular schools in Comber, Newtownards, Belfast and Downpatrick. The renowned Killinchy Primary School and the shores of Strangford Lough are only a short drive/cycle away.

This is a home that has to be viewed to be fully appreciated and early viewing is highly recommended!

  • Four well-proportioned bedrooms, two ground floor and two first floor
  • Bright open plan Lounge and Dining room, with solid wood floor and feature fireplace
  • Double glazed Conservatory with French doors leading onto the front garden
