A stunning re-imagination of this 1930's single storey dwelling, this gorgeous home is a masterclass on interior styling and presentation.
The house – situated adjacent to Irish Grange and under 5 km from the beautiful Carlingford village, the property is also 15 km from the M1 motorway and 20 km from Dundalk town centre. In summary, then, a 5 km radius takes in several national schools, a secondary school (Bush PP is under 2 km away), Cooley Kickhams GFC (750 metres), Templetown Blue Flag beach, as well as some of the most breath-taking mountain and seascape settings in the country – along with all of the associated amenities of the Cooley Peninsula. A 25 km radius takes in Dundalk, Newry, access to the M1 – for important services, and also fantastic lifestyle options, along them Strandfield Café, 2 popular golf courses and Dundalk Institute of Technology.

The house – a modernised and upgraded c 1930's cottage – occupies a surprisingly large site located alongside the once Dundalk to Greenore railway line. The outdoor space is itself is filled with charm: busy wildlife, along it unusual birds, hedgerows bursting with flowers, colour and buzy bees, a canopy of gorgeous mature trees as well as the makings of a fantastic orchard and cottage garden. There is off road access at both sides of the house, giving ‘drive-around' options.

The house itself – well I will try to do it justice: the entire house is painted in a beautiful palate of deep vibrant colours, with feature colours punching through. Original features, such as cast iron fireplaces, joinery and a fantastic period stove, are highlighted to maximum effect, and the result is a house with layers of interest and style.

Presenting with a beautifully picturesque gated front garden, the tone is immediately set for what is a very comfortable home. Entering via the vestibule with original tiled floor, into hallway with solid wood floor and mid-height panelling – a bright space. To right, the living room with eclectic features and a stunning 60's art deco ceiling light. Cast iron fireplace brings this room nicely together. Off this room, the first bedroom or perhaps library: dual aspect with wooden floor – definitely a highlight for the bookish among us – this room – with fireplace – is so comfortable and the pop of red in the deep green panelling is perfect.

To left of the entrance, the dining room with quarry tiles is a spacious room with a stove recessed into large hearth opening. Definitely the original heart of the house, this space gives onto the modern kitchen (upgraded in very recent years) – a fantastic duck egg and teal theme, finished with stylish wide subway splashback. The back door leads to a very sweet little courtyard or terrace – a sheltered spot for morning coffee, and adjacent to that is the convenient utility with modern boiler, storage and laundry facilities: fantastic relocating of the noisier domestic matters away from the very calm attitude of the house.

Also off the dining room are two further bedrooms and both are decorated impeccably and beautifully wallpapered. Some important storage lies between the dining and bathroom, where an impressive marble tiled floor runs through the bathroom – a really impressive space. The free standing claw foot bath dominates but doesn't impose on this space – it's L shape means a separate shower gives important convenience – but even the shower stall is impeccably styled and wouldn't look out of place in a 5 star boutique hotel!

The house measures c 100 sq m, has septic tank, oil fired heating, superfast broadband connection (an essential for virtually all buyers these days) and so many interesting features to talk about – best meet you there so you can see for yourself!
