Cannot praise the team at Templeton Robinson Holywood highly enough. From the initial valuation, professional photography and luxury brochure I was confident i had chosen correctly. At all points in the sale i was kept informed and any issues pre-empted and handled efficiently and effectively. They communicated well with my financial and legal advisers making a stressful process as smooth and seamless as possible. (Worth noting that with just seven sets of viewers they sold my house 3 times.) I would look to no one else to sell my home with and couldn't recommend them highly enough. Thanks guys!

Situated on Whinney Hill and approached by a sweeping driveway, "Tranquillity" is a beautifully presented detached villa and a hidden secret!
The property enjoys a superb elevated site circa 0.6 acre, with excellent views over Belfast Lough and the Antrim coast beyond. The scene is constantly changing though out the day and across the seasons due to the sun's position and nautical traffic on the water. The property nestles in well stocked mature gardens with lawns front, side and rear.
The house is individual with a design inspired by the "Arts and Crafts" movement and built in 1938. It features the original leaded diamond windows supplemented by double glazing for the more recent extension, Conservatory and detached Garage. The main roof is in Westmorland green slate and the walls in Lagan Vale Brick.
The property has been extremely well maintained by the present owners and developed substantially. The principal reception rooms and kitchen are well proportioned with bright interiors that work well together as an overall design. The large sitting room enjoys dual aspect views. The Family Room, Kitchen and Conservatory may be opened up as an open plan space that offers multiple views and a good flow. On the first floor, the Gallery Landing enjoys a Reading / Library area, 4 bright bedrooms; "Jack and Jill" ensuite and family bathroom.
Holywood's town centre is only a few minutes away with its local shops, restaurants, coffee shops and renowned schools. The Culloden Hotel and Ulster Folk and Transport museum are almost next door. Its prime position makes commuting to Belfast or Bangor easy whether by car, bus or rail (Marino Halt just at the bottom of the hill). Access to the nearby coastal path and the adjacent country roads make the location excellent for walking.
All this offers an opportunity not to be missed.
