HORSE lovers will be in their el­e­ment in this sub­stan­tial fam­ily home nes­tled in the heart of the Co Down coun­try­side.

With a pad­dock and a sta­ble block this im­pres­sive prop­erty of­fers a life­style that com­bines the peace of coun­try liv­ing with the con­ve­nience of be­ing lo­cated close to both the A1 and the M1.

The lo­ca­tion is also just min­utes from the vil­lages of Dro­mara and Hills­bor­ough and the house sits on a main bus route for lead­ing sec­ondary and gram­mar schools.

As well as the 1.5 acre pad­dock there is a com­mer­cial yard with a 1250sq ft ware­house, so run­ning a busi­ness from home is also an op­tion.

The house it­self im­presses with its dis­tinct ar­chi­tec­tural style, gen­er­ous liv­ing space and qual­ity in­te­rior fin­ishes.

There are two pil­lared en­trances with wrought iron gates set in a quaint stone wall lead­ing onto a large tar­mac drive­way.

The house is set back from the road be­hind a neat lawn with spec­i­men trees.

In­side the spa­cious ac­com­mo­da­tion is flex­i­ble enough to be used to suit your spe­cific fam­ily needs as there are five bed­rooms and three re­cep­tion rooms.

A pan­elled en­trance hall leads into the re­cep­tion hall which is fin­ished with solid wood floor­ing and wooden in­ter­nal doors and ar­chi­traves.

The kitchen/din­ing room is over 20ft long and is fin­ished with a porce­lain tiled floor and fit­ted with oak units topped with gran­ite.

In­cluded is a gas and elec­tric range cooker and a Bosch in­te­grated dish­washer.

The fine de­tail which gives this home added pres­tige and char­ac­ter can be found in all of the re­cep­tion rooms.

The sit­ting room is in­stantly invit­ing and cosy with its fea­ture oak pan­elled ceil­ing and pan­elled walls with solid ma­hogany wood strip floor­ing.

An­other beau­ti­ful bespoke ceil­ing in Zen Ash adds in­ter­est to the liv­ing room which also opens into a spa­cious din­ing room.

There is a fea­ture stone fire- place with gas fire and mar­ble hearth and dou­ble glass doors open into the sun room where you can en­joy easy ac­cess to the gar­den and pleas­ant ru­ral views.

There is also a util­ity room with porce­lain tiled floor and low level units fin­ished with UPVC pan­elled walls.

Also on this floor there is a bright bed­room which is per­fect as a guest room with its own porce­lain wash hand basin.

The ground floor bath­room is a lux­u­ri­ous space with a Jacuzzi bath and match­ing pedestal wash hand basin, low flush toi­let, chrome heated towel rail and a cor­ner shower with power shower.

An oak stair­case leads up to the gen­er­ous first floor ac­com-

mo­da­tion where a huge mas­ter bed­room with pic­ture win­dow looks out over beau­ti­ful open coun­try­side.

Solid ma­hony floor­ing runs through the room into the en suite which is fin­ished with half tiled walls with mo­saic de­tail­ing and has a fully tiled shower cu­bi­cle with elec­tric Red Ring shower.

Two of the re­main­ing three bed­rooms also fea­ture a porce­lain wash hand basin set in a van­ity unit.

Out­side the prop­erty is just as well thought out with a lovely el­e­vated fea­ture pa­tio area with views across the coun­try­side.

There are fea­ture shrub beds and paved steps and a ramp lead to a gen­er­ous rear lawn bounded my ma­ture plant­ing and fenc­ing.

There is also a sep­a­rate de­tached work­shop and pot­ting shed and a dou­ble garage.
