Northern Ireland home balances seclusion and sophistication
Set in seven acres of verdant landscaped grounds and boasting its own private lake and woods, it’s not difficult to understand Skellig House’s £995,000 asking price. While there is no doubt that the exceptional property offers a new level of serenity for future owners, within, it has been fully modernised for those seeking the pinnacle of luxury living.
An innovative underfloor heating system has been installed, delivering sumptuous comfort that’s easily accessed by the latest touchpad heat controls. Wi-Fi is available throughout the estate, while a cutting-edge Beam vacuum is also included.
Based on Ballynahinch Road, just beyond Dromore, the country pile offers 4,500 square feet of contemporary living space spread out over three floors and a self-contained single bedroom annex.
Skellig House was designed by the famous architect Des Ewing as a family home, and it has been finished to an exacting standard using the finest materials available. The home’s enviable features include porcelain tiles from Italy, bespoke artisan-style cornicing, high feature ceilings and a custom-built designer kitchen.
Six double bedrooms are provided, plus a master bedroom with a dedicated en-suite shower room and walk-in dressing room. Other areas include three individual reception rooms, a family bathroom and a kitchen-cum-dining area, as well as a cloak room and utility room based on the ground floor.
Outside, a double garage with electric-powered doors, paved courtyard and turning circle make Skellig House an ideal property for those receiving guests and keeping vehicles of their own.
