Dating back to the 1800's and formerly part of the Dunleath Arms, a temperance hotel, this charming attached residence is steeped in the history of Ballywalter. The village is located on the Irish sea coastal of the Ards peninsula with a picturesque stone built harbour, a refuge for the fishermen of a bygone era. The property is a focal point for the compact heart of the village and is one of the most unique and recognisable homes on this popular coastline. The exterior has a mixture of Victorian and Tudor styling, while the brick detailing of the centre arch, which would have been used as access for the horse drawn carriages, blends beautifully with the richness of the rosemary tiled roof. Internally, wood panelled walls and quarry tiled floors give this home a distinctive character and warmth. To the rear, a cobbled courtyard leads to a coach house for which planning permission is presently being sought for conversion to further accommodation. This may be of use should the successful purchaser wish to continue the Bed & Breakfast business for which there is presently Tourist Board approval. The property has been restored and maintained in a sympathetic manner and it has been our pleasure to first view and now offer for sale part of the historic fabric of Co Down.
