Strangford Cottage is a 3390 square foot, grade B listed building (of local historical and architectural importance). It was built by the Earl of Kildare in 1789 and retains many of its original features. The house benefits from having, in recent years, undergone four phases of restoration and renovation, the last of which included a full electrical re-wire.
Strangford Cottage is now presented to the rental market in peak condition and after having been fully redecorated under the guidance of a professional interior designer.
This much-admired Georgian house overlooks the harbour in the beautiful village of Strangford. The interiors have been tastefully presented and the majority of the rooms enjoy ever-changing views over Strangford Lough to Portaferry. The spacious country-style kitchen leads out to a delightful, landscaped courtyard complete with a guest studio and steps up to the wonderful rear garden from where you can also enjoy the view.
The village of Strangford is a very special place in which to live and is popular with locals and visitors alike. There is an increasing number of amenities and access to walks through woodland and around the coast. The Castle Ward estate with its mansion, farmyard and hundreds of acres is just up the road as is an award winning organic farm shop, a popular sailing club and Cloghy Rocks which is a habitat for much bird life whilst the Narrows are a playground for an array of nautical traffic for canoeists and yachtsmen. There are places to shop, eat and drink in the village and of course the regular ferry takes you across to Portaferry and the Ards peninsula. Belfast city centre is within 1 hour's drive, including the George Best Belfast City Airport.
A Property of this nature, boasting such an array of quality extras, rarely presents itself to the rental market; therefore, only by personal appraisal can one truly appreciate all that is on offer
