Additional Information

The Agents Perspective…
"From its elevated position overlooking Holywood and Belfast Lough, this charming former farm house has been extended and renovated over the years but still retains all of its welcoming atmosphere.
In addition to the space on offer in the main house, there is an attached, self-contained, two bed room apartment which would be ideal for an extended family or those with semi-dependant relatives. There is also the opportunity to secure a rental income here as the apartment is registered and approved by the Tourist Board.
A truly delightful home - for all the family"
