Greenore Road, Carlingford,
What's in an ideal home? Style, privacy, great accommodation with quality finish, garage, a house filled with light, high energy efficiency. A space that allows busy living, entertaining and, when needed, tranquillity.
If this sounds like a wish list, it's not! Michael Lavelle Estate Agents are delighted to bring you the ideal home at Greenore Road, Carlingford: a property that's so well thought out and smartly finished, it's missing nothing!
A magnificent home occupying a large site (almost 1 acre) that's within strolling distance of Carlingford village, this property offers space as well as convenience. Found at the entrance to Carlingford village, close to The Four Seasons Hotel and Ghan House, the property is nicely tucked away and could easily be passed unseen. Yet when you're there, you see an impressive, architecturally designed property that immediately presents as a luxury home.
The house is centred around a south facing patio but in fact has lovely indoor to outdoor areas all around the property, so whether it's morning coffee or evening BBQ, the house very capably offers lovely settings. The site, in addition to the house measuring 406.5 sq m, accommodates a double garage, apple orchard, lovely lawns and, for the avid or budding gardeners, a polytunnel and the makings of a great gardening space.
Inside, the house has a lovely layout: Entrance hallway is very impressive; light-filled with chequered tile floor with staircase – the ground floor accommodation surrounds it. These rooms are all finished with quality floors and are filled with natural light. The formal living room is triple aspect – a lovely generous space, it has open fire and bay window overlooking patio. Double doors lead to another triple aspect space (music room) with double doors onto patio.
Back to hallway with guest wc, a spacious, light filled playroom or office also gives onto the patio area. It's worth noting that this room, given its adjacent wc, could be repurposed into a ground floor bedroom, if preferred.
The family room is super cozy, with open fire and oak floor. Again, you can bring the outdoors in with access to the outdoor patio. Adjacent is the kitchen: a stunning bright space. Flanked on both sides by windows and a pair of double doors onto the south facing patio, the kitchen is a solid wood inframe design with solid wood worktops gives a firm country feel, thanks also to the contemporary take on the quarry tile floor. A fantastic, beautifully curved island provides not only great work space, but also a lovely socialising spot! You'll note here the abundance of space by the large dining table and sideboards.
A utility is adjacent to kitchen, and at the far end, the second entrance to the house with quarry tile floor and second staircase to the upstairs. A shower room completes the ground floor.
Upstairs begins with a bright mezzanine landing. Velux windows let light in and also deliver great views of Slieve Foy: what a backdrop! The first floor is laid out in an L shape, and all are well presented and bright. There are 5 bedrooms (4 of them are either large or very large doubles, and the fourth is a large single. The rooms facing north east have views of the Mourne Mountains. One of the bedrooms has a combined ensuite relationship with the upstairs main bathroom, which is smartly finished with chequered tiles.
The main bedroom – more a suite really – is a fantastic space which offers its own connected ante-room: ideal for so much, from dressing room to nursery to yoga. This room gives onto a balcony overlooking not only the lovely gardens, but also a bird's eye view of Slieve Foy. Also here are a walk-in wardrobe and a very impressive ensuite, complete with free standing roll top bath, separate shower and all beautifully presented.
All in all, this house really does qualify for "Ideal Home": Set over 406.5 sq m / 4375 sq ft, on a large private site, with a great energy rating thanks to the recently installed Air to water heat pump: the property even delivers eco-credentials!
