ENJOYING AN IDYLLIC SETTING, THIS STUNNING PROPERTY IS PRIVATELY NESTLED IN MATURE WOODLAND, PERCHED ON THE RIVER BANK, MAJESTICALLY OVERLOOKING THE WEIR AND MILL RACE ON THE RIVER MOURNE AT SION MILLS
THE 4 BEDROOM, 4 BATHROOM CONTEMPORARY COUNTRY RESIDENCE IS SET ON CIRCA 5 ACRES AND OFFERS THE LUCKY PURCHASER A TRANQUIL OASIS OF BEAUTY WITH AN UNRIVALLED VISTA AND RURAL SETTING, YET ONLY 3 MILES FROM STRABANE
RARELY DOES SUCH A HIDDEN GEM COME TO THE MARKET
On initial presentation, this unique property is cleverly disguised as a charming cottage, nestled discretely in a woodland setting but its attractive, yet understated façade masks an incredible contemporary country home with views unrivalled in the county.
Its enviable position, perched above the weir at Sion Mills offers a breathtaking vista from almost every room in this house. The weir and mill race, designed by Yorkshire engineer, William Fairbairn in 1845 to power the world famous Herdman’s Mill, forms one of the great beauty spots in the county and this home has been designed to capture the magnificence of this creation, in its entirety.
If natural light is high on your wish list, this house has natural light spilling in from all corners. The addition of the dramatic double storey atrium is a stunning feature which brings the outside in with the high floor-to-ceiling windows and vaulted roof.
When night falls and the view disappears, the house itself magically comes to life. The expertise of a lighting specialist was used to enhance the architecture and interior design of the building with the use of downlights, spots and uplighting and thus has succeeded in creating a subtle, atmospheric yet functional and practical lighting scheme that most definitely gives the house the wow factor.
The main living area is open plan with a modern contemporary kitchen to one side, offering the ultimate cooking experience and the mezzanine / landing area above adds to the bright and airy feel. Eyes are also drawn to the fireplace with its feature cast iron fire basket which creates a homely and cosy feel in the heart of this contemporary home.
There are 4 double bedrooms, all with ensuite facilities and 2 are located on the ground floor. The master bedroom remains unfinished although fully serviced with underfloor heating and provision for floor-based lighting. The ensuite bathroom, also with underfloor heating, has been plumbed for the WC, wash hand basin, shower and feature plunge-pool bathing and gives the purchaser the opportunity to add their own style and finish.
Set on circa 5 areas, the outside is equally as impressive with a slate-paved terrace which offers a delightful space for outdoor dining and relaxing. The entrance from the Liskey Road is flanked by tall solid sandstone pillars with high wooden painted electrically operated gates and a mature beech hedge - all of which ensures complete privacy from passers-by. The sweeping expansive lawn to the side, screened by mature trees, rolls down towards the meadow below which can be accessed from this country residence via a quaint shaded bridge known as Grevenue Bridge. The meadow meanders alongside the ebb and flow of the River Mourne and offers excellent potential for grazing cattle, sheep or horses. There is also separate access to this directly from the Liskey Road.
Complimentary fishing at any time during the season is offered by the local angling club.
