Property: Delve into Divernagh's coastal paradise

Whoever purchases this historic residence along the scenic coastal route between Warrenpoint and Rostrevor will be faced with the decision to modernise or undertake a complete overhaul.

One thing that can be agreed on is the location - it’s absolutely stunning, with panoramic sea and mountain views in abundance.

It even has its own private access to the beach, with beautiful spacious gardens and a feature pond.

Built in 1938, four generations of the well known Harris family have been resident in Divernagh, enjoying the spoils of the sea on their doorstep.

Approached via a private gravel driveway, you’ll be captivated by supremely maintained lawns surrounding the six-bedroom property.

Palm trees, flowering rhododendrons, azaleas, snowdrops and daffodils are peppered throughout the garden, providing a kaleidoscope of colour against a majestic backdrop that takes in Carlingford Lough and the Cooley Peninsula. Inside, the lounge features a bay window boasting views of the lough, with marble surround fireplace and tiled inset and hearth.

Commanding views can also be found in the dining room, which has its own marble surround fireplace with cast iron inset and tiled hearth.

Oak fitted units and tiled floor lighten up the kitchen, while the conservatory is a real highlight of Divernagh, delivering cosiness and relaxation whether the sun is beaming or the rain is lashing down.

There are four bedrooms on the ground floor, with two on the first floor, with one possessing access to the attic.

Charm and character brings the property the life and depicts its unique history.

The new owner may consider demolition and build a new property (subject to planning permission) but either way Divernagh will be a fascinating project and represents a glorious opportunity in an area with a wealth of leisure activities, lakes, forests and mountains galore.

Tourism is growing all the time here and it’s also ideally placed if you’re travelling to Newry, Belfast or Dublin, with excellent transport links.
