Bucolic bliss – idyllically situated cottage with 6 acres
With distant views of the beach at Ards Estuary this country cottage offers 3 bedrooms (2 doubles) and well-proportioned living accommodation to the ground floor. The property does now require some updating and this is reflected in the price guide. The location however is extremely scenic and unusually benefits from undulating land of c.6 acres (well maintained due to letting to local farmer for sheep grazing). An ideal property for prospective buyers looking to downsize to the country – although ample room to extend exists if required.
