5 Bedroom Detached Country Residence with Spectacular Views over Strangford Lough
Ballyhenry House comprises a detached country residence occupying an elevated site, with breath taking views over Strangford Lough & The Narrows. The property is approached via a sweeping driveway flanked by traditional stone walls and an array of trees, leading to parking to the east of the dwelling. The bright accommodation is laid out over two floors of generous and elegant proportions, as shown on the accompanying plans.
The house has been beautifully designed to take advantage of the spectacular views over Strangford Lough & the surrounding scenery. Notable period features include the sliding sash hardwood double glazed windows, as well as the beautiful ornate ceiling roses and cornicing throughout.
The ground floor comprises a luxury open plan kitchen and living area with double doors that open out to the front garden, an exceptional drawing room, dining room, studio/office, luxury bathroom, and cloakroom with WC. On the first floor, there are five well-proportioned bedrooms, two of which have en suite shower rooms and enjoy uninterrupted views of the Lough. The property further benefits from an air exchange system throughout, as well as underfloor heading on the ground floor.
Externally the property boasts a beautifully landscaped garden to the front, with a sundeck that benefits from an idyllic setting overlooking Strangford Lough. The garden is bound by a variety of trees and hedgerow that offers added privacy. To the rear of the property there is a walled garden, restored barn with stabling, and detached double garage with an annex above, suitable for a granny flat or teenage den subject to the relevant permissions. The property further benefits from planning permission for a distillery to the northeast of the main dwelling, under planning reference X/2014/0169/F. Full planning documents and drawings can be made available upon request.
The farmland at Ballyhenry House extends to approximately 15.6 acres (6.07 ha) and is currently laid in grass. The land comprises two rectangular fields, one of which is accessed from the yard, whilst the other is accessed off an internal farm track.
