Ladies & Gentlemen, the property that many of you have been waiting for, and that many of you have dreamed of, has now arrived to the market. Michael Lavelle Estate Agents are delighted to offer for sale this exclusive seafront dwelling at Gyles Quay. Possibly the quiet, pretty cousin in the Carlingford area, Gyles Quay is the one the locals are keeping quiet, although a visit there will confirm that it has much to boast about! Stretching shore, fab dipping spot for local sea swimmers, plenty craic at the local Ferguson's Bar and oh what a view… It never fails to stop this writer in her tracks.

Enjoying an elevated 0.7 acre site that overlooks the shore and Dundalk Bay at Gyles' Quay, one couldn't ask for a better position than Teach an Tra from which to watch the tide come and go, the weather move across the sky and the murmuration of starlings hypnotically perform their mesmerizing assembly. Whilst at the other side of the site, the imposing Slieve Foy humours the weather and silently watches the passing of time. Yes, with a breath taking scene like this, one can easily become a little philosophical!

One could be forgiven for thinking that Teach an Tra is all about what is beyond the front door, but it is, in fact a very, very smart house within. Designed and built in mid 00's, the house has two key motives: enjoy the surroundings, but give the best in technology inside. The c 220 sq m of accommodation in this future-proofed home is literally wired for wireless command – from light to sound to security. It is also insulated to a very high level from attic to walls to floors as evidenced in its impressive BER rating. But we will first focus on its modern accommodation:

Entrance hall with tiled floor, is flanked to right by the ground floor bedroom – large and enjoying views of the sea, this light-filled room has a walnut-effect tiled floor and great proportion.

To left of the hall is the first reception room – the main living room. With a feature stone hearth and free standing stove, this room also enjoys uninterrupted views across Dundalk Bay. The stone hearth, capped with beautiful solid oak beam serving as over-mantle, the parred back use of natural materials means the space is all about the view outside. Double door opening leads to a large kitchen space that is bright and fresh. The fully fitted kitchen with large stove does all that is required for a family home in terms of both form and function, and it is supported by a large utility room with shower bathroom that qualifies the property's future proof credentials.

A triple aspect sun room c 3.5 x 3.5 is at the western elevation off the kitchen – the perfect position for enjoying the outdoors even when the outdoors is less than appealing weather-wise!

A lovely stone-paved patio is outside the two French doors off the kitchen and sunroom – this enclosed space allows play space for children and a chance to enjoy the mountains to the north.

Upstairs, there are three very large bedrooms. All have either built in or fitted wardrobes and all compete for which has the best view! The main bedroom is pure class with its massive space, an ensuite and a very sweet walk in wardrobe that could possibly be amongst the most enviable of dressing rooms yet!

But it's the landing that steals the show upstairs; double French doors lead to a balcony above the front door: from here, take a seat and simply breathe in the wonderful surroundings.

The site, with electric gates and sweeping drive, is very cleverly planted to give year round interest as well as clever screening and privacy. There is a detached garage with mezz for extra storage. Whether you're in need of space for your garden equipment or want a space for your pool table, this garage is on hand to oblige!
