We are delighted to present to the market 171a&b Clay Road. Properties of this specification rarely come on to the market, and rarer still in such exceptional order. Consisting of 171a: The Gate Houses, and 171b:The Loft Studio and Coach Houses, the estate dates back to 1709 and has grown and adapted over the centuries in the beautiful landscape of County Down. The current owners have only recently made the Gate House their home, having completed extensive renovations and extended the property, with no expense spared. They have succeeded in creating a striking home, incorporating the rustic charm of original stone walls and beamed ceilings with luxurious modern finishes. The second Gate House, adjoined by the gateway arch, provides further accommodation. Currently divided into a large home office space on the first floor with a kitchen, shower room and two rooms on the ground floor, the property is ideal for those in need of space to run a home business or work remotely. Alternatively, it could of course be used as further accommodation for family members or guests. Across the courtyard at 171b, The Loft Studio is presented to the market fully furnished. Having had various uses over the years, from chicken loft to art studio to guest accommodation, it contains a further two bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and living room. Below, full planning permission has been passed to convert the present stables and stores into living accommodation. The Coach Houses complete this impressive quartet. Currently comprising a garage, two stables, boot/tack room and utility room, the building could also be converted to provide further accommodation (subject to necessary approvals). The surrounding grounds have been immaculately cared for and include a formal pond, summer house with deck, greenhouse, a variety of fruit trees and topiarised shrubs, chicken coops and two small paddocks. All nestled between rolling drumlins, and close to Strangford Lough, it truly is hard to picture a more idyllic setting. Belfast is just a 30 minute drive away for those commuting, and the neighbouring villages of Killyleagh, Killinchy and Crossgar offer a range of amenities and activities to include award winning restaurants, shops and excellent schools.
