Additional Information

Nestled peacefully within one of Northern Ireland’s many ‘Areas of Outstanding Beauty’, we welcome you to Quoile Quay House. Whether it be springtime when the daffodils are out, early summer with the splendid cherry blossoms or the uninterrupted surrounding views of the Mourne mountains, Slieve Croob, St Patrick’s Monument in Saul or the spire of Down Cathedral, you will not be disappointed. This stunning property is approached through the Quoile Nature Reserve, yet it is minutes from the historic town of Downpatrick, a short drive from Strangford village and only 35 minutes from the city of Belfast. Quoile Quay House truly has something for everyone. Built in 1959 by Sir Robert McConnell, and tastefully remodelled by the present owners in 2003, credit must be awarded for the attention to detail. The property was built in the era of mahogany, and while it holds many of its original features including cornicing, original flooring, fireplaces, butler’s pantry, and a small wine cellar, it offers flexible and adaptable accommodation for the ever-changing modern world. Currently being used as four en-suite bedrooms, two studies and four receptions, it could easily be converted into a six-bedroom property, with ample entertaining reception rooms. We believe that this property will appeal to even the most discerning purchaser and therefore we invite you to take the time out to truly appreciate what is on offer.
