Property: Find your own source of inspiration overlooking magical Carlingford Lough
Lamenting for his homeland, author CS Lewis famously once said: “That part of Rostrevor which overlooks Carlingford Lough is my idea of Narnia.”
From The Cloughmore Stone to The Fairy Glen this is an area saturated in mythology and colourful tales, of course no more so than the beloved Narnia series which continues to enthral generations to this very day.
The ‘daughters of Eve’ and the ‘sons of Adam’ can meanwhile find their own source of inspiration here at this awe-inspiring property just over two miles from pretty Rostrevor village.
A sprawling residence, 2A Killowen Old Road offers an impressive 3,200sq ft of living space perfect for modern families who long to live in an area of unparalleled beauty and charm.
It sits on grounds of 1.2 acres and was designed not to only complement this stunning natural setting, but also to ensure a life of luxury and comfort.
The property’s bespoke open plan living/dining area is a real focal point benefiting from a multi-fuel stove and simply mesmerising sea and countryside views for as far as the eye can see. The perfect space from which to just sit back with your morning coffee and paper and absorb the many charms of Carlingford Lough.
The home has been finished to the highest standard leaving its lucky new owner with little to do but move in and start enjoying all the spoils of such a decadent setting.
Downstairs comprises an impressive reception hall with stunning tiled flooring, a spacious lounge with a feature fireplace, oak carved surround, solid wood floor and glazed panel doors leading to a sun room with dual aspect windows to enhance these panoramic views. Here you’ll also find three spacious bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Every corner of this house has been designed with its magical fairytale setting in mind. Upstairs comprises a landing approached by a solid oak staircase where buyers can enjoy a fantastic high gloss kitchen with a range of integrated appliances.
However the space is equally practical with a utility room, a separate WC, a master suite benefiting from an en-suite shower room and of course, the bespoke open plan space which also leads to a wonderful decking veranda offering sea and mountain views.
Externally there is every bit as much to talk about including a tarmac drive, charming gardens and even more storage space. However, what is perhaps most interesting is the elevated garden area complete with a sports pitch and a built in trampoline. It will no doubt prove a hit with children but this hidden Narnia-esque setting isn’t accessed by a wardrobe but rather via interesting sleeper steps. A truly magical outdoor setting.
And pretty much right on your doorstop, a whole host of amenities await you including Kilbroney Park with its inspirational walks and trails and of course, The Fairy Glen. Pretty Warrenpoint and bustling Newry are also both close by.
