Sennen House is one in a pair of mirror image mid-late 19th century semi-detached villas designed by prolific Newry architect W. J. Barre, situated on the shores of Carlingford Lough and with a striking vista across to the Cooley Mountains and high peaks of Slieve Foy. This two-storey high, two bays wide villa benefits from a south-facing principal elevation and resides in one of South-Down's most sought-after areas on a mature site of approximately 0.77 acres.
A private, sweeping driveway follows terraced lawns and mature plantings, leading to a pebble-lain forecourt whereby the exquisite grandeur of the property can be fully appreciated.
Internally the property exudes period charm with double-height ceilings throughout enhancing the feeling of space and light. Occupied by the current residents for the past 21 years, it is only upon viewing will one achieve a full appreciation of the flow and ambience this substantial family home has to offer.
Situated on the Mourne Coastal route, the property is convenient to Newry via the A2 dual carriageway, providing ease of access to Dublin, Belfast and beyond.
In addition to the main house, a seperate annex, formally a stable and coach house offers a variety of uses to include a Guest/Granny Flat or Studio/ Office. A feasibility study has also been carried out in relation to the potential for sub-dividing the main house into a number of apartments subject to planning and full details of this can be made available upon request.
