The Coach House dates back to the early 1880's and was originally built alongside the stables for Laurel Lodge that became known as Garth House. Now converted to a two storey detached residence, the property is situated overlooking a cobbled courtyard which retains the original brick archway. However it is internally, that a transformation has taken place, professional interior designing and impeccable taste have made this a unique and beguiling home.
Reception accommodation is bright and spacious and flows beautifully from a magnificent drawing room with minstrel gallery through to an everyday living/dining room which in turn opens into a striking modern bespoke kitchen with French windows to an enclosed patio garden. There are three bedrooms, two on first floor level, both with en-suite facilities. Presentation and attention to detail have ensured the character of the building remains within a comfortable living environment.
The property has two access points, one through the courtyard and the other directly from Ranfurly Avenue to the side of a double garage, which accommodates a first floor office/hobbies room.
Ranfurly is a renowned and prestigious address in Bangor West, running between Maxwell Road and Farnham Road allowing for convenient travel by road and rail to Belfast. Stricklands Glen and the coastal path are a short stroll away, adding significantly to the many attractions of this much sought after location.
As is often the case, description pales in comparison with reality and we strongly recommend viewing of this exceptional property.
