This former Gentleman's Residence occupies an elevated mature site commanding unrivalled views across Belfast Lough and the Irish Sea to the Antrim coastline and Scotland beyond. This elegant red brick period residence has since been converted into six well proportioned self contained apartments. Number 2 is one of the largest and located on the ground floor maximises on the outlook across Bangor Bay and Belfast Lough. Mature gardens are communal and secluded. The grounds provide ample parking and garaging and are accessed down Seacourt Lane at the junction of Maxwell and Princetown Roads.
The magnificent drawing room, with wall friezes, ornate cornicing and two bay windows, overlooks the gardens with breath-taking sea views. The character and charm of the period residence has been contained within this apartment including period carved Adams' style fireplace to the drawing room, pitch pine wooden flooring and deep moulded architraves and doors. There are two well proportioned bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, and a small but modern kitchen with integrated appliances and access to the basement cellar/utility area. Other benefits include gas fired central heating and double glazed sash windows. There is a garage and ample parking for residents and visitors.
Properties with such character and charm, occupying such a magnificent shore front location, rarely present themselves to the open market. We feel interest in this property will be immediate.
