Woodside House is an attractive mid-Victorian stone built property which dates back to 1843. The former manse sits in beautiful grounds extending to about 1.75 acres. To the west, cast iron gates set into a low stone wall by the public road give entry to the gravel driveway which leads to the front door and also sweeps round the side of the house to the back door and coach house. A tiled vestibule opens into the reception hallway at the front of the house which gives access to the dining room, drawing room and kitchen. The drawing room has arched sash and case windows on two aspects and a beautiful timber mantelpiece with a multi-fuel stove below. Across from the drawing room is the dining room which has an open fireplace with tiled surround and timber mantel and a window to the front. This room has beautiful cornicing and a traditional press cupboard. A passageway beneath the stairs, passing an under stairs cupboard, leads into the kitchen, which can also be accessed from the sitting room. The kitchen was designed and fitted by the Newcastle Furniture Company and features a range of fitted base and wall units with solid granite and maple worktops and a traditional Belfast sink. The window to the west has working window shutters and has a fitted window seat. There is built in book shelving to one corner and incorporated into the kitchen is the old bread oven which has space for a microwave and is adjacent to the four oven Aga.
A door from the kitchen leads through to the working quarters of the house where there is a corridor to the back door and a WC with wash hand basin and built-in cupboards. Beyond is the utility room which is plumbed for a washing machine and has twin Belfast sinks. It has traditional flagstone flooring and houses the oil fired boiler. The larder is located beyond the utility room and has its original marble shelving. The staircase rises from the main reception hallway and half way up there is a door to the mezzanine floor where the master bedroom overlooks the gardens. There is also a bathroom here with a WC, wash hand basin and bath with electric shower over. By the master bedroom there is a box room with built in cupboards. The staircase continues from the mezzanine door, passing a linen cupboard, to the galleried first floor landing which is lit by a skylight above. There are three further bedrooms here. Two of the bedrooms have closed fireplaces and the bedroom on the south west corner has a working fireplace and a walk in wardrobe and a door to the study or nursery. The family bathroom has a bath, WC, separate shower, wash hand basin, and built in cupboards by the window. There is access from the landing into the loft which has power and lighting.

Adjacent to the back door there is a stone built coach house with double garage, work shop and tool shed. To one end there is a covered wood store and compost heap. The coach house previously had planning consent to be converted into a self-contained dwelling. The gardens of Woodside House have been beautifully maintained and are surrounded by stone walls and a number of mature trees. The gravel driveway is flanked by flower beds and leads to the back door where the main area of garden lies. Here there is a lawn surrounded by beds and mature trees and in the corner of the lawn is a stone patio. A grass path leads up the other side of the flower bed past the greenhouse to a metal gate into the orchard. Here there is a further greenhouse, fruit trees and access onto the public road. To the south is a paddock which extends to half an acre and has been used for grazing sheep in the past. Remnants of the old church can still be seen on the boundary wall of the paddock.
