INTRODUCTION

Perched on an elevated site at the foot of Knockshee "Fairy Hill" Mountain, Ballincurry House is the most splendid country manor, set in the midst of 6.5 acres of flourishing landscaped gardens, drawing towards the most magnificent panorama of the enchanting Carlingford Lough, Slieve Foy Mountains and onwards south toward Dublin Bay. Beautifully formed over three decades with an attention to detail quite literally second to none, the 8,000 sqft of elegantly designed interiors provide warm family living space with 5 sumptuous bedroom suites, coupled with extensive entertaining and leisure facilities, as well as a 1,500 sqft, 2 ensuite bedroom guest house with its own private entrance. The expansive grounds boast heated garages for 5 cars; a wine cellar; purpose built gym and games room; a groundskeeper's workshop to aid in the tending of the formal lawns, woodland and Italian garden; a boat house and discreetly located service yard, as well as a range of purpose built terraces formed with reclaimed brick, stone, fountains and pergolas to provide an enchanting setting for dining long into the Summer nights. Further, the inclusion of 2.5 acres of farm land is enhanced by a stable block and purpose built hen and duck enclosures, all accessible via a separate farm entrance. Located in the highly desirable area of Killowen, just outside the village of Rostrevor where the mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea; Balincurry House is without any doubt, a most magnificent home in a unique location that positions the capital cities of both the North and South just 60 minutes away.
