Superbly sited just off the Knockbracken Road close to its junction with Lisnabreeny Road East and only a short drive from either the main A23 Ballygowan Road or the A24 Saintfield Road this is an excellent opportunity to acquire a very conveniently located and highly desirable small holding occupying a most prominent position with easy access and clearly what must be regarded as the finest uninterrupted views over adjoining countryside with extensive reaching views of Scrabo, Strangford Lough and a wide section of the Ards peninsular yet being only a short drive out of Belfast City Centre and within easy commute of leading schools, services and other amenities in East or South Belfast. Of immense interest to adjoining land owners, farmers, equestrian pursuit enthusiasts, passive farmers, or self employed who can make best use of the valuable land and outside space including the various out buildings, including garaging, small stores and other sheds available the property may have potential for further development subject to statutory approval being obtained. The detached bungalow residence, circa 1200 Sq Ft, itself which has had extensive home improvement carried out in previous years offers excellent, well proportioned and centrally heated comfortable living accommodation with THREE bedrooms and generous country style kitchen with space for dining all with solid floors. From this unrivalled position the majority of windows in the principal accommodation enjoy excellent views almost picturesque over rolling countryside across the wonderfully landscaped regions of the Ards and closer in the Castlereagh foothills. Inspection strongly recommended for appreciation.
