A charming, deceptively spacious detached Cottage with excellent Barn storage set on a generous semi-rural site with private gardens and ample parking.
This delightful cottage has been a family home for over 50 years for the current owner and offers an abundance of character and charm. The accommodation comprises of 4 well proportioned bedrooms, principle bathroom with a white suite, bright living room with Victorian style fireplace, dual aspect reception Dining hall with a terracotta tiled floor and decorative reclaimed timber detailing, open plan kitchen, dining and family room with cream fitted kitchen units and a fireplace, shower room and a double glazed conservatory.
The property is accessed from the car parking area via a covered storage area that also houses the PVC oil storage tank and Oil fired boiler. This offers the potential for conversion into a garage, if required.
The Old barn (26’1” x 22’1”) has a vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses and was previously used as secure storage. There is excellent potential for use as additional accommodation, a studio or home office, subject to the relevant permissions.
The gardens to the front, side and rear are enclosed and well planted to provide a degree of privacy on all aspects. The rear and left hand side gardens enjoy a Southerly aspect. These are mostly paved with a small lawn area in the side garden enclosed by mature hedging and tree planting. The rear garden is paved and tiered, providing sheltered private areas with a sunny aspect for ideal for outside entertaining.
Twin pillars with five bar painted wrought iron gate give access to an enclosed decorative stoned parking area, providing ample parking for the family cars or works van.
Its convenient location at the Ballygowan end of Ballykeigle Road makes it ideal for commuting to Comber, Lisbane, Balloo, Killinchy, Ballygowan and Saintfield, with Belfast being only 20 minutes away.
Kilmood Playgroup, Right Rascal’s Day Nursery and Lisbane’s After School Club are just a short drive away. Killinchy, Carrickmannon and Alexander Dixon Primary Schools are all within easy reach.
This a home that needs to be viewed to be appreciated and to see the full potential that it has to offer.
