Kiss looming winter blues goodbye here at Bluestone Cottage – a meticulously executed barn conversion dating back to 1897 in Newtownards.
Steeped in history, the property was re-purposed in 2002 and no stone was left unturned in creating a modern family home brimming with convenience all while expertly preserving its original charm.
Vaulted and beamed ceilings, exposed blue stone, red brick walls, Italian stone tiled floors and solid granite work surfaces all combine to offer an immense feeling of warmth and character.
The property consists of an original farmhouse and two other barn conversions – a well designed development known as a clachan.
Accommodation comprises a spacious drawing room with feature vaulted beam ceiling and a cast iron wood burning stove, an exceptional open plan kitchen with dining/family area and Dan Scan wood burning stove, a separate utility room, family room, four well proportioned bedrooms (principal with en-suite shower room) and a luxury family bathroom.
But it’s only with a viewing that potential buyers can fully appreciate the scale and versatility of this property. Furthermore, a second entrance means that Bluestone Cottage is potentially the perfect location from which to run a small business. And here, working from home will always be a pleasure rather than a chore.
Whether you’re logging on in the mornings, greeting clients at midday or filing paperwork in the afternoon, your day here at 110B Movilla Road will be lifted by views of beautifully presented mature gardens. And you’ll always be able to pop outside, onto one of two large timber decked terraces, for a quick coffee at your leisure.
There’s room for multiple cars, lots of lovely little nooks and crannies from where to relax and wide open spaces to regale with loved ones at the end of a busy day.
And if you can bear to peel yourself away for just one moment, you’ll find that you’re within easy reach of many amenities including great schools, shops, sporting facilities and of course, The National Trust Property at Mount Stewart and Scrabo Tower. Enjoy drives alongside Strangford Lough and on a more practical note, excellent road networks to Belfast.
