William Montgomery has a life-long interest in the artistic heritage and history of Ireland. His family have been living at Grey Abbey in County Down since 1606.
The present house, built in 1762, is the third to be built by the family on the site overlooking Strangford Lough, and is considered to be one of the finest Georgian country houses in Ireland. The house and grounds, which include notable gardens, can be viewed by appointment.
Since 1982, William Montgomery has represented Sotheby’s in Northern Ireland and Ireland from his office in Grey Abbey. (NOTE: he said in an email to me that he was not with Sotheby’s anymore.) Clients may call by appointment for advice on buying and selling antiques, and home visits can also be arranged.
Since 1986, he has advised clients on the purchase and sale of historic and architecturally-important properties in Ireland, the UK and Europe.
