Property: A home of unparalleled charm

Beulah-Anne Sinton

South Down is renowned for its mythical landscapes. Indeed, and although it’s not exactly a Christmas film, we might well catch the movie adaptation of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe on our screens any day now. 

Author of the infamous series, C.S Lewis described this corner of Northern Ireland, his homeland, as his “idea of Narnia”. 

These are landscapes saturated in history, folklore and of course outstanding natural beauty. From the mesmerising Carlingford Lough to the awe-inspiring Slieve Gullion, imaginations simply run wild when one enters South Down and North Louth.

And given its easy access to the vibrant city of Newry, it’s no surprise that this is a highly coveted area in which to live. 

Oak Lodge on the Clontafleece Road, Burren rests in its stunning natural surroundings perfectly. It’s a five bedroom property finished to immaculate standards meaning you can simply move in and start enjoying the wealth of opportunity that comes with this address.

Oak Lodge offers versatile accommodation and can be set up to meet your own individual requirements. It also has the benefit of a first-floor conversion over the garage which would be suitable for those working from home. 

The ground floor comprises an impressive entrance hall with marble tiled flooring enhancing a wonderful space bathed in natural light. The lounge, as one would expect from such thoughtful design, maximises views of the surrounding rural countryside with an open fireplace to complete a cosy feel. Meanwhile the family room and sunroom are the ideal spaces from which to regale and relax on a more casual basis. 

On through to the solid oak kitchen which comes complete with all the best appliances, a dining space and patio doors leading to the garden with panoramic views of the Cooley Mountains and the surrounding countryside. 

Downstairs also enjoys a separate WC and utility room. Up the solid pine staircase and marvel at a veranda/balcony with marvellous views of Burren countryside. 

There are five spacious bedrooms with the master offering mountain views courtesy of a Juliet balcony, an ensuite and a dressing room. You’ll also find the luxurious family bathroom featuring a corner jacuzzi bath and “his and her” sink units. 

Outside isn’t exactly shy on space either with a garage, home office and separate WC. Gardens are laid in lawn while a variety of shrubs and trees, including two oaks, add to the character of the property. There are meanwhile plenty of areas from which to dine and draw inspiration from. 

An array of amenities are close by while the property also enjoys easy access links to bustling Newry, beautiful Warrenpoint and beyond courtesy of the motorway.
