Description

Blair Mayne House has been renovated and restored to its former glory. Steeped in rich local history, this Grade B2 Listed Building was originally built circa the 1600s as a gentleman farmer's residence. It was acquired by the Mayne family around 1840 and was the family home of Ulster's most famous soldier and one of the most highly decorated of World War II - Lt Colonel Blair 'Paddy' Mayne. Approached by a sweeping driveway, this impressive residence is situated at the top of the hill overlooking Newtownards town and the extensive gardens of approximately two and a half acres. Extending to approximately 3,000 sq ft, the property has been sympathetically modernised without detracting from the elegance of the architecture and retaining the warmth and character of properties of this era. It has been finished to an impeccably high standard and the attention to detail is evident. Features include sliding sash windows, notably high ceilings, and bespoke kitchen plus luxury sanitary-ware throughout. The layout comprises two generous reception rooms, open plan kitchen - dining - living with patio doors leading to the exterior sun terrace and is further enhanced by utility room, cloaks WC plus an attached double garage. Upstairs are four large, well-proportioned bedrooms; master with ensuite plus main bathroom. The house has enormous potential for future expansion with space to add an upper floor above the garage area, a large, clear roofspace area with good headroom and a wine cellar. Located off Scrabo Road on the Belfast side of Newtownards, the property enjoys an established, mature location combining the concept of modern family living along with the convenience of Newtownards' many amenities and recreational pursuits and also ideal for commuting to Belfast.
