The Agent's perspective: "This is a handsome Edwardian townhouse which stands proudly on the shore front and enjoys magnificent views across Belfast Lough towards Carrickfergus. A stunning vista which changes every few minutes as the weather travels across the water. The interior is bright, welcoming and exudes a feeling of warmth and character as many of the original period features have been retained. The house has four bedrooms, two reception rooms, a possible study / office area on the first floor and a kitchen large enough to accomdate a dining table. Within a pleasant walk along the shore, the location is ideal for access via the underpass to Holywood town centre, shops and the train station to Belfast is also nearby. A charming, family home which will not fail to delight".
