The Agent's perspective: "At first glance this substantial detached family home looks as if it has been part of the landscape for a long time - and that is true for part of it. A former farmhouse stood here for possibly 200 years and the present owners were keen to retain that feeling when renovating the existing building and constructing a substantial extension. The result is an unusual, spacious family home with spaces for children to enjoy and separate areas for adults to relax. Surrounded by mature gardens and enjoying the tranquillity of the adjoining countryside, the house is just outside Parkgate giving easy access to Belfast city centre or Belfast International airport. Definitely a home to be explored and one to be enjoyed"
