Property: Charming coastal living at Castlerock
Agent: Philip Tweedie
Offers Around £450,000
Northern Ireland’s stunning north coast has been thrust into the limelight in recent years courtesy of events such as Portrush’s hosting of The Open and of course a little TV programme you may, or may not, have heard of called Game of Thrones which was partly filmed on these golden shores.
And while this coastline is famed on a global scale, back home there has also been a renewed interest in our cherished landscapes, their rich tapestries, their people and their local produce.
The health and lifestyle benefits of living beside the ocean are well documented - recently an advert for caretakers on Kerry’s Blasket Island received 23,000 responses from around the world - and life along the coast offers a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of suburban life.
This stunning property at 30 Barmouth Road, Castlerock offers such an opportunity. Located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, this detached property is truly unique in its design and charm.
And if you are inspired by the success of our home-grown golfing greats in recent years, you can of course perfect your own game as the property overlooks Castlerock Golf Course.
Nature enthusiasts will meanwhile occupy a unrivalled setting on the River Bann Estuary and the National Trust Bird Reservation.
The finish of this home perfectly matches the beauty of its location with bespoke cedar windows and doors, St Johnston Stone, vaulted ceilings, underfloor heating, quality kitchens and bathrooms and of course, romantic balconies from where to marvel at your unequalled surroundings.
Designed by award-winning architect Michael Rodgers and constructed in 2004, this is a three bedroom property - master with ensuite and dressing room - comprising also a country type open plan kitchen area, TV room/snug lounge, bathroom, utility room and separate WC.
This innovative design - with the kitchen, lounge and snug space located on the first floor - means that you can take full advantage of the amazing ocean views on offer in the spaces where you will inevitably spend the most time.
Of course living in such a spectacular location will no doubt mean that family and friends will just love to visit so if needs must, the TV/snug room could easily be converted into a fourth bedroom.
Occupying a large plot perfectly placed to take full advantage of all the spoils of life along the north coast, the home itself extends to approximately 2,200 sq ft with an additional detached garage and carport.
After a busy day exploring this abundance of natural beauty you can kick off your boots and warm up with cosy and clean underfloor central heating.
At 30 Barmouth Road, you will find a property that has been immaculately maintained internally and externally, beautiful gardens in lawn, a stoned driveway to front and rear and a whole site enclosed by a timber fence.
In this quiet and peaceful setting you will undoubtedly find the solace that most of us crave yet you will only be two miles from Castlerock, a short hop and skip to Downhill Beach and within easy driving distance to Coleraine and Portrush.
The best of both worlds really does await at 30 Barmouth Road.
