Property: The masterstroke along the coast
There has been a lot going on up on the north coast lately, hasn’t there?
It’s often the launch pad for tourism drives, with countless stories on how Game of Thrones has helped bolster visitor numbers to record levels. Meanwhile, the world’s oldest golf tournament - The Open - arrives for the first time in almost 70 years this July.
And if that doesn’t stoke your interest, the enduring appeal of the Causeway Coastal Road certainly will. For many, it’s the place to be.
But something just as coveted as a dragon’s egg or the Claret Jug has come on the housing market.
Liswatty Road is host to a staggering four-bedroom property of seemingly unparalleled luxury, boasting an apartment/annex for good measure.
From first glance it is apparent that much time, effort and love was put into designing this special home. Its current owners have continued this theme when revamping and updating it in recent months.
The home itself includes four good sized bedrooms (two with en suites and dressing rooms) and three stunning reception rooms. In addition, a large garage with first floor, a one bedroom annex and a stable block are also found at this property.
Situated on a beautiful site of 1.6 acres and remaining close to Coleraine and the Causeway Coast, this listing poses a glorious opportunity.
Extending to over 4,400sqft, the main house consists of four double bedrooms (two with ensuites), lounge, kitchen, dining area, sun lounge, utility room, downstairs WC, main bathroom.
A high specification of finish throughout ensures each room is designed with stunning finesse, with immaculate craft dripping from every surface.
The property’s quality ash internal doors, architraves and skirtings are a real treat, while some beautiful architectural features include open tread staircase, large two storey window, and bi-fold doors.
An oil fired central heating system, pressurised water system and underfloor heating to ground floor also help shape this extraordinary home.
The one bedroom (ensuite) annex comes with a quality kitchen, living area with wood burning stove and countryside views.
Elsewhere, a large garage, stable block, paddock area and stunning manicured grounds only further illustrate what a magnificent property this is, with offers starting at around £575,000.
The home, accessed via a lighted, tree lined driveway with electric gates, is located just outside Coleraine town centre and north coast gems such as Portrush and Portstewart are just a short drive away.
Whoever lifts the Claret Jug in the summer will no doubt be joyous, but they’ll struggle to match the elation of the lucky new owners of 5 Liswatty Road.
