With Ireland’s first win over New Zealand in 111 years and Donald Trump storming to victory in the US presidential election, the last week has taught us to expect the unexpected. 

One thing is certain though - the unparalleled beauty of Strangford Lough offers guaranteed serenity whatever the weather. A calming, dreamy landscape, this part of the world appears to restore order to it.

Occupying an idyllic elevated setting with a southerly aspect over Whiterock Bay, The Rig offers deceptively spacious accommodation with a layout adaptable to differing family requirements. 

The idyllic location enjoys commanding views over Strangford Lough and a rural backdrop; however the property is only 15 minutes from Comber, 30 minutes from Belfast and Holywood, and within easy access of other County Down villages and towns including, Killyleagh, Crossgar, Ballygowan, Newtownards and Downpatrick. 

From a lifestyle perspective, the location’s dreamy landscapes is unrivalled. 

Strangford Lough Yacht Club is within a five minute walk, Mahee Golf Course is a 10-15 minute drive away, coastal walks are on your doorstep and there are excellent restaurants within close proximity including Daft Eddy’s on Sketrick Island (five minutes walk), Balloo House, and The Poachers’ Pocket.

The property has been substantially extended and comprehensively renovated, and now offers a wealth of accommodation appointed to an exceptional standard throughout. 

The accommodation comprises a spacious reception hall, cloakroom, morning room, a glrious living room (with full length bi-fold doors leading to a terrace overlooking Whiterock Bay), an opening to dining area and hand crafted kitchen, drawing room, utility room and guest bedroom suite. 

On the first floor there is a magnificent master bedroom suite with ensuite bathroom and adjoining sitting room/study. This suite could easily be adapted as a self-contained apartment as it is served by a secondary staircase. There are three further bedrooms on the first floor all with private ensuite facilities. 

Outside, there are mature landscaped gardens to the front and an elevated terrace accessed from the living room with a magnificent aspect over Whiterock Bay and Strangford Lough. 

There is a substantial integrated garage with automated roller door and an adjoining large utility room/workshop area. 

The property benefits from full PVC double glazing, and PVC fascia boards thereby minimising external maintenance. 

All in all, this is an individual home of exceptional style in one of Northern Ireland’s most idyllic settings. Viewing is highly recommended and is by private appointment. For more information call 028 9042 8989 or visit www.simonbrien.com
