Few properties command such breathtaking panoramic views as this multi-layered beauty in Downpatrick.

Even fewer come equipped with such a comprehensive list of riches that are contained within the lavish grounds of Annacloy House on Rann Road. It’s hard to know where to start, but you could mention the property’s equestrian facilities, tennis court, generous barbecue area, games room with enough space for a snooker table and you would still only be scratching the surface of what this country residence entails.

Approached via a long private driveway, the handsome detached family home is situated on an elevated site extending to C20 acres. Once you’re able to drag yourself away from the absorbing views across the surrounding gardens and countryside, the interior of the grand estate manages to captivate in equally effortless fashion.

Charm and character filters through every corner and every surface, from the marble fireplace in the main reception room to the impressive built-in bookcases in the games room.

Each room looks like it has a real story to tell and the prospect of being involved in the property’s next chapter will thrill many as they view a home that lets the imagination and the possibilities run wild.

Many rooms, including the study, allow views over the gardens for inspiration.

The drawing room and dining room emanate with elegance and grace, while the kitchen’s space will allow creativity to flourish when guests are visiting.

Five bedrooms have plenty of space and comfort, with three possessing ensuite facilities.

The aforementioned games room, or billiard room if you prefer, is something to behold. Imagine the crackling fire from the ornate marble fireplace coinciding with the sound of the break-off on the snooker table and you have a setting elevated to a whole new level of magnificence.

A garage, car port, stud courtyard area with numerous out buildings, stables and C.17 acres of agricultural land round off one of the most remarkably varied properties in Down or anywhere in the north for that matter.

The stunning estate is situated in an idyllic location in an area of outstanding natural beauty, tucked away between the rolling countryside of Co Down and close to the shores of Strangford Lough.

Gems like Downpatrick, Ardglass and Newcastle are less than 30 minutes away by car, while the commute the Belfast is around 45 minutes.
