    Summary

    Glen House is a two-storey residence occupying a generous site of 3.63 acres in manicured lawns and walled gardens. The house and outbuildings formed part of the original Crawfordsburn Estate dating from circa 1820. This fine residence is steeped in history and appears in a number of historical documents due to its noteworthy occupants including members of the Crawford family of Crawfordsburn House and Mrs J Perceval Maxwell of the prominent County Down family. Her father David Stewart Ker, served as Deputy Lieutenant and High Sheriff of County Down and Antrim and Member of Parliament for Downpatrick and County Down over the period from 1841 to 1857.

    In 1897 the Belfast Newsletter described the house as “within easy distance of Helen’s Bay station with good stabling and coachhouse accommodation and a large walled garden with fine vineries and hothouses”

    By 1900 the house was occupied by James Craig a prominent linen manufacturer whose firm was based in Linenhall street in Belfast. The house was subsequently occupied by the Lindsay family who remained in the house for many decades. The 1911 census indicates that also resident were a staff of four, a coachman, parlourmaid, housemaid and cook.

    In more recent times the house has been tastefully restored and the current owners have spared no expense with the standard of specification and finishes throughout both internally and externally. Located on a spacious site on the outskirts of Crawfordsburn village and approached by a sweeping driveway this stunning period residence has been thoughtfully and carefully refurbished to offer a luxurious home suitable for modern living while still retaining many of the original architectural features and generously proportioned rooms. This unique property has private access into Crawfordsburn Country Park and enjoys the ambience of the Crawfordsburn waterfall.

    The accommodation comprises of on the ground floor; spacious reception hall, office/cloakroom, drawing room, sitting room, living room, dining room, garden room, kitchen with living and dining area and utility room. On the first floor is period style luxury bathroom, six bedrooms (four with ensuite shower room). There is an adjoining annex suitable for teenager, relative, consulting rooms or home business. This comprises of entrance hall, living room, kitchen, cloakroom, sitting room, two bedrooms, bathroom and luggage room. Outside is a garage with loft storage and original greenhouse.

    The gardens are beautifully landscaped with a profusion of mature trees and shrubs some of which are contained within a walled garden. To the rear of the grounds, full planning permission has been granted for a detached dwelling which will incorporate approximately 1.76 acres.

    All in all a most unique opportunity to acquire one of Northern Ireland’s most sought after residences situated in a private setting yet within easy access to Crawfordsburn village, Belfast, Holywood and Bangor.
