Additional Information

Privacy was the first feature that attracted us with views of greenery from every window. Marino train station, post office and convenience stores are within a 10 minute walk with Holywood town centre a 15 - 20 minute walk along the North Down Coastal Path.
External maintenance is minimal due to the use of plastic for fascias, etc. and doors and window frames. During fine weather, the covered deck was used for meals and entertaining. During colder weather we appreciated the heat of the Esse multifuel stove which ran continuously.
The garden was manageable with the help of a man who cut the hedges. It has been a comfortable home enjoyed by us and our visiting children and grandchildren.
