<< INITIAL CONTACT BY EMAIL PLEASE >> This beautiful home is a fine example of an early twentieth century country property, of immense character, superbly located in the heart of the Cooley peninsula, within walking distance of Grange village and 5Km from Carlingford. The entire property has been beautifully maintained and is presented with great style and flair. Incredible attention to detail, sensitivity, and respect for the original country home, combine with fine taste and craftsmanship to create a really special property where the elegance of the original blends seamlessly with modern refinement. On arrival at the front gate of the property, with distinctive curved pillars, you will be struck by the instant curb appeal of the aesthetics of this home, with entrance symmetrically balanced on either side by four hard-wood sash windows. All front windows have the unusual six over one glass pane design that gives this home a particular appeal. The front garden has well established plantings, including picturesque climbers, that change color over the seasons -beautifully softening the front facade. On crossing the threshold, there is a vestibule with ornate patterned Edwardian tiles. This area is separated from the hallway by an original interior glass and wood door. You are immediately struck by the height of the ceilings in this space, which is enhanced by dark panelling combined with William Morris wallpaper. This space, which serves as the spine of the house, has a feel of a room in itself. There is room for a seating area and a compact desk. To the right of the hallway is the spacious sitting room with a cast iron open fireplace as the centerpiece. This room is dual aspect and features an early twentieth century salvaged, brass three arm globe chandelier that originally came from the main hall of a much larger period property. The room, because of it proportions and high ceilings, has a very grand feeling, yet the darkly painted walls aptly complement these period details to give it a warm and cosy ambiance. Leading off the sitting room is the largest bedroom which again is dual aspect. The room is currently laid out as a library, with a pull out sofa bed beautifully lit up behind some bespoke wood panels. To the left of the hallway is the dining room, with original quarry tiles and a period Stanley Range. This room easily accommodates a 10 seater dining table and with the adjoining modern galley style kitchen, offers an open/close plan entertaining space. The kitchen has an electric countertop hob and fitted oven. There is also a fridge, dish washer and clever use of storage, through fitted and freestanding units. The other two bedrooms are accessed off the dining room and have feature wooden floors, along with the same sensitive attention to detail that reflect the age of the property. The large L-shaped bathroom leads off from the back hallway and features a claw foot roll top bath and separate electric shower. The bathroom has siena marble effect tiling throughout, with a gold and yellow hue that is dramatically contrasted by the use of dark wall colors and complemented by gilded accessories to give a relaxed luxurious feel. The backdoor to the house leads off from the kitchen to a small walled courtyard with adjoining storeroom. For everyday convenience, all the noisy white goods are located away from the house in the attached utility/store room which also houses the modern condensing boiler. The property has two entrance gravelled driveways on either side of the house, offering ample parking for several cars. Gardens extend to either side of the property. The lower garden, with its newly fitted fence has an orchard of several fruit trees, combined with native and ornate tree varieties there is access at the bottom of the garden to the nearby shop, village pub/restaurant and church. Also within walking distance is the Monkland Primary school and local GAA club. The upper garden is currently laid out in lawn, bordered by mature native trees. There is also a bus stop across the road from the property. Because of its location, the property benefits from high speed fibre broadband. The combined gardens and property sit on over 1/2 an acre, offering immense privacy and unlimited opportunities for those wishing to exploit the untapped potential of these grounds further. Situated in the stunning Cooley Peninsula, close to the shores of Carlingford Lough, on your doorstep you have the medieval village of Carlingford, Greenore Golf Club, the Greenore/Carlingford Lough Ferry, numerous local blue flag beaches approximately 4 KM away and yet only a 15 minute drive to the M1 Dublin - Belfast Motorway Junction and Dundalk Town Centre. This house is being sold by private treaty and, for convenience, it is requested that you first contact, via email, to state your interest in the property in order to organise a private viewing.
