The site is on the top of a drumlin on the shores of Strangford Lough with panoramic views from Scrabo Tower to Portaferry and views over Killyleagh Castle to the majestic Mournes.
The site was a disused farmstead and contained various stone buildings of different sizes and in different conditions forming two courtyards.
The views were the primary influence on the design and layout of the dwelling.
Other factors such as orientation, wind direction - both prevailing and offshore - and the stone outbuildings were also incorporated.
The dwelling is approximately 4500 sq ft with a dramatic two-storey glazed entrance hall with a bridge linking to a first-floor lounge.
Extensive use of balconies leading from the lounge and bedrooms complement the landscaping of the gardens.
Supplementary to the dwelling, the site also contains a triple garage and boat store, garden and general stores, a tall shed with sail loft, log stores with a viewing platform, a stable and a paddock.
