The property is accessed via a gated entrance with ample parking provided on the driveway while a separate shared entrance provides access to the rear.
Skerries is a thriving seaside village famous for its sandy beaches and bustling town. Ardgillan Demesne is a short stroll away from the house with its wonderful walks, coffee shop and playgrounds.
