If anyone needs us, we’ll be daydreaming about its perfect rustic kitchen and old stone floors.

Situated just ten minutes outside of Belfast, and five minutes from the sought-after town of Hollywood, Grangefield is a spectacular home with all the charm of a country pile, yet within easy reach of Northern Ireland’s capital. Belfast Lough is also on its doorstep, with many coastal walking routes. 

With five bedrooms and multiple reception rooms, this home dates from around 1840, and has a generous amount of space for a family. It comes with two acres of land, with outbuildings, while there is also the option to purchase an additional 31 acres, should you fancy it.

The entrance hall of this home has a double-height ceiling with a gorgeous sandstone floor. A panelled cloakroom is the perfect place for the family’s coats and bags. 

The kitchen is a real feature, with rustic wooden units, a large Aga, and marble worktops, while freestanding furniture adds to its charm. There is a walk-in pantry with space for the fridge and freezer, while a utility room has two Belfast sinks, as well as space for a washing machine and dryer.

On this floor is also a living room with exposed stone walls and an open hearth, a dining room with parquet flooring, a drawing room with a period marble fireplace, and a playroom.

Upstairs, the main bedroom has a dressing room and ensuite, while the other four bedrooms enjoy unusual details like vaulted ceilings or exposed beams.
