At AMG we are happy to say that a number of prestige properties have passed through our books this year and all were exceptional in their own way. However, our latest listing at 100A Hillside Road, is exceptional in every way. A three reception, 4/5 bedroom description belies the scale and versatility of the accommodation and the quality and innovation of the original build. To describe the location as simply rural is neglectful. Perched in the shadow of Knocklayde the property is only six miles from Ballycastle and the stunning Causeway Coast. Travel south and the dual carriageway is only ten miles away, bringing Belfast and the International airport within an hours drive. The views into the valley from the front doorstep are superb and to the rear we will include a 3.2 acre field providing room for the proverbial pony. The interior combines the contemporary with the traditional and offers quality and interest throughout. This is a prestige country residence, but above all else it is a very comfortable family home.
