The Owner's Perspective
"We love living in the middle of the tranquil countryside, yet only minutes from the heart of Holywood town. This a fantastic family home with great flow between the living rooms, kitchen and dining room, most of which open on to the wrap-around patio, a very warm and sheltered area where we get the sun from morning to sunset. The gardens are particularly beautiful in spring and early summer when the azaleas, rhodendrons and cherry trees all bloom. We have a large bedroom, dressing room, study, bathroom area which gives us peace from the children's bedrooms and gives them their privacy, yet we are close enough to hear them. The children love having access to the balcony and are often found doing homework on it. Our musical son has space for his drum set in his room and yet we are far enough away to barely hear the drums! We both work from home so each have a study and there is a gym for personal training clients with direct access to the garden where exercise sessions are conducted (or golf pitching practiced!)."
