At the end of a quiet country lane sits Tobera House on its own private mature grounds of approx. 1.42 ha / 3.5 acres. Electronically controlled gates open to reveal a charming farmhouse style residence approached via a gravel driveway and flanked to either side by lawn and mature trees. First impressions of the handsome exterior suggest a character-filled home and the interior layout does not disappoint! A long dining / reception room has a solid fuel stove at one end and, in turn, connects to a sitting room and living area. The open flow of accommodation suggests Tobera House is ideally suited to entertaining. Light spills into these rooms on foot of the plentiful windows and patio doors to the south-facing terrace and gardens.
Immediately off is a large well-proportioned kitchen which could easily accommodate a sturdy farmhouse table. There is a good range of fitted units (wall & floor) in addition to a Stanley range cooker and various electrical appliances. At the other end, a large side hallway doubles as a utility room with ample storage units and a Belfast sink. There is also a 5th bedroom / home office and a shower room off the hallway. A door leads into a double car port which acts as a sheltered walkway to the stable block.
Upstairs, there are 4 no. bedrooms, all with views over the gardens and out to the Irish Sea. The main bedroom has an en suite bathroom complete with claw footed free standing bath, wc & whb.
