Take me to church: Holywood townhouse has character and convenience aplenty

Unmatched style and substance, period, here at this splendid Victorian home at Church Avenue in Holywood

Holywood Victorian townhouse
Green with envy Space and style awaits here at 8 Church Avenue

Behind this green gate at 8 Church Avenue, sits a property bursting with colour, character and convenience just waiting for its next owner to come along and embark on a new chapter.

Dating back to 1845, they will be met with a surprising amount of space perfectly primed for modern lifestyles – including four generously sized bedrooms – and of course, all the original charm of a period property by the sea with features like bay windows, hardwood floors, a ceiling rose and a cast iron claw foot roll top bath.

There’s even a Thomas Crapper high flush toilet, just Google that name if you don’t already know, and a Crapper sink with polished brass hot and cold taps.

Vibrantly styled rooms and of course, unceasing views to both the water and the Antrim Hills offer even more talking points.

The townhouse property is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in what is undoubtedly one of North Down’s most desirable postcodes.

It’s within walking distance of Holywood town centre, the North Down Coastal Path, Redburn Country Park and Spafield Recreational Grounds.

Lots of opportunities for outdoor adventure await and on an equally practical note, 8 Church Avenue is also within walking distance of a number of top schools.

There’s double glazing throughout with the added convenience of gas fired central heating. You’ll also enjoy a front courtyard laid in brick paving and a beautifully enclosed rear garden partially laid in paving and stones with a southerly aspect creating a lovely space to enjoy late summer evenings.

Enjoy all the spoils of a new life close to the coast for offers around £375,000.
