Additional Information

THE OWNERS PERSPECTIVE.....

"This house has a wonderful history but most of all it is a wonderful family home. We have thoroughly enjoyed our way of life here whilst raising our family, and as we now down-size it's time for someone else to enjoy it. Rockmount is extremely private, surrounded as it is on all sides by mature trees and hedges; many people don't even know there is a house here! The space, both inside and outside, is tremendously comfortable, giving everyone in the family their own room to breathe, live and grow.

We originally had no intentions of moving to Helen's Bay but we're so glad we did because of the beautiful area and all the amenities and practicalities it has to offer. The train is only a 5 minute walk away, providing a convenient and frequent service to Holywood, Belfast and Bangor - this gave our children a bit of early independence. In addition to the Bangor schools, Sullivan, Campbell and Strathearn schools are all serviced by school buses (those going to Rockport, Inst, Methody and Victoria use the train). On our door step there is also the Golf Club, Tennis Club, a Montessori pre-school, two beautiful beaches, cycle and running paths and fantastic walking (the dogs' favourite bit) along the coast.

We hope whoever chooses to move here loves it just as much as we have done"
