No 62 Princetown Road is one of a pair of semi detached villas known as Augustaville, built in 1887 and referred to in local historical heritage publications as probably the best semi villas in Bangor. The enduring grandeur of this gracious three storey home is matched by the imposing Marine Esplanade setting and spectacular aquatic views which encompass the town's seafront.
Approached by a pillared entrance, the impressive grounds sweep down to the coastal path, with gated access and are predominantly laid in lawns.
Internally the magnificent formal reception rooms, including a first floor drawing room, have attractive round bays and are complimented by cosy casual living space and useful utility facilities. Six bedrooms offer a variety of options for a variety of uses.
The usual period features are to be found throughout and enhance the gracious and homely atmosphere that pervades this splendid home. But as is the case with all homes in such a stunning location, one's eye is inextricably drawn towards the sea views and associated activities.
It is a privilege to offer this landmark property for sale and an opportunity for someone to acquire a beautiful home.
