The Owners Perspective...

"Our family has enjoyed 50 years of happy living in this unique and beautiful period home .
It is a very special house with an abundance of original features; such as stained glass windows, ornate ceilings, marble fireplaces, marvellous woodwork and is full of character in every respect.
Although close to Bangor and Belfast by car or train for commuting and schools, the house has a country feel being surrounded by trees and in a secluded garden, with the added attraction of beautiful country and coastal walks in the vicinity.
We have enjoyed wonderful times throughout the seasons both indoor and outdoor; particular highlights being gatherings of family and friends around Christmas and Easter.
The deceptively spacious accommodation is flexible for anyone who wishes to enjoy a truly exceptional home in a most sought after location.
It will be very hard to leave our home but it is time for a new family to enjoy all the pleasure that Grey Gables can offer"
