A wonderful opportunity to purchase April Cottage and substantial adjoining lands and stables, the total site encompassing 14 acres. Ballygraffan has operated for many years both as a private eventing yard and also an equestrian business. The yard consists of a maximum of nine stables, four horse walker, field shelters, sand manège and exceptionally dry grazing land. This detached family residence enjoys an elevated position approached off a long lane from Killinchy Road. The secluded position commands views over rolling countryside to Strangford Lough and surrounding countryside. This is the ideal opportunity for those with equestrian interests.
This family home is exceptionally well presented throughout where bright and spacious accommodation combines with tasteful internal design ensuring this home will appeal to even the most discerning of purchaser. The large kitchen/dining/living space opens to the rear formal gardens, a perfect spot to enjoy the birdsong and sunshine. There are two well proportioned first floor bedrooms as well as two ground floor bedrooms, the principal bedroom, where there are views to the Mourne Mountains and to Strangford Lough, boasting an en suite dressing room and en suite bathroom. Of particular note is the fabulous dining room with wood burning stove whilst the kitchen is complimented with an Aga oil fired range. To the front, the property enjoys a paved and landscaped courtyard with a southerly aspect. To the upper yard are two purpose built studio apartments in the guise of Maurice's and Harry's stables, perfect as Air bnb's with a five star rating and registered with Tourism NI. There are also four stables to the upper yard, wash bay with solarium, tack room and feed store as well as garage. The lower yard provides additional parking, barn, four horse walker, sand arena and up to five large additional stables.
Purpose built and extremely well organised, it is rare to see an equestrian small holding of such calibre present itself to the open market. The accompanying land to the surrounding adjacent fields provides total area of circa 14 acres of some of the driest fields in the country enabling year-round turn out. The location of this property benefits from direct access to the main arterial routes and is only five minutes' drive to Comber town centre and Lisbane and Balloo are close by. Belfast City Centre is a 30 minute drive away, the shores of Strangford Lough are also within walking distance or a short drive, all in an Area of truly Outstanding Natural Beauty. With excellent proximity to main road networks and public transport links for commuting to work and schools in Belfast, Newtownards and Bangor ensures this property has wide appeal to a family market.
