Charming Victorian Mid-Terrace House

Our Home

Charming, tastefully restored Victorian terraced house (built circa 1870), in the heart of Comber, a busy and friendly town in beautiful County Down, just nine miles from Belfast city centre, and with just five to ten minutes' walk or cycle ride in any direction to the countryside.

More about this property

The house comes with all the conveniences you would expect for modern living, whilst maintaining much of its original Victorian character.

The house has four fireplaces, a sunken patio, good-sized private garden (in which you will find seating, lighting, a gas barbecue and a ten-foot trampoline with enclosure, as well as a garden shed containing the washing machine and tumble drier), a downstairs wet room, and an antique free-standing bath upstairs.

To make your stay more comfortable we also have gas central heating and hot water, a five-ring gas/electric cooking theatre, a dishwasher, a DVD player, an iPod dock, a flat-screen TV, and unlimited WiFi.

Our Neighbourhood GolfBeach

Comber has a great range of shops and services, including a supermarket, a leisure centre, craft shops and an artisan food store, a wide variety of takeaways, coffee shops and restaurants, hairdressers, churches and pubs, with everything within five to ten minutes' walk of the house.

More about the neighbourhood

The Comber Greenway, a scenic cycling and walking route, runs from Comber (five minutes from the house) to Belfast Titanic.

Comber is steeped in history and was once a thriving linen and whisky producing town. Linen was made in a mill a few minutes' walk from the house, which was owned by the Andrews family, one of whom (Thomas Andrews) you may be familiar with, as he designed the Titanic. In fact, our home in Mill Street was once owned by the Andrews family.

A short drive or bus ride from Comber is the bigger town of Newtownards, which has a hypermarket, a shopping mall, a market on Saturdays, a cinema, several "play cafés", and a leisure centre with a swimming pool.

Dundonald, also five to ten minutes' drive away, or fifteen by bus, also has a multi-screen cinema, pirate-themed mini-golf, ice-skating, ten-pin bowling, a large leisure centre, a soft-play centre ("Funky Monkeys"), and restaurants in the same complex.

Further out is the marina town of Bangor, an attractive large town with many shops, restaurants and amenities, Pickie Park, crazy golf, a multi-million pound olympic-standard leisure centre, and Ballyholme beach.

Northern Ireland in general has not yet been overrun with tourists in the manner in which most other beautiful countries have. Here you can discover many areas of natural beauty, heritage sites and activities (including sites featured in the Game of Thrones and specialist tours), National Trust properties, the famous Giant's Causeway, the Armagh Planetarium, the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, the wonderful north coast for surfing, and countless opportunities for the golfer!

Dublin is around 110 miles away, and the rest of Ireland can be reached by car within hours.
