5 Bedroom Detached Coastal Property with Spectacular Panoramic Sea Views

About this property

  • Coolmara is a superbly located seafront property on the sought-after Strand Road, with breath-taking views over the Atlantic Ocean, extending to Donegal & Scotland on a clear day. The property is approached via 2 entrance pillars with a sweeping tarmacadam driveway leading to ample parking to the side of the property.

    Coolmara offers a unique opportunity to purchase one of the last original houses on Portstewarts coastline, which has remained with the current vendors since 1963. Originally constructed in 1930s, the property has been beautifully designed to take advantage of the spectacular, panoramic views over the bay and surrounding scenery. Whilst previously enjoyed as a family home, the property has been used as a holiday home in recent years offering significant income generating potential.

    The ground floor comprises an entrance hall, porch, 3 reception rooms, a kitchen, utility, conservatory, master bedroom with ensuite, and 4 further bedrooms. The dining area benefits from sliding doors that open out to a patio area to enjoy the morning sun, whilst the living room features large bay windows to capture the magnificent sea views, with a fireplace for the colder evenings. The master bedroom features a walk in wet-room and fitted wardrobes.

    Three of the remaining four bedrooms also have the benefit of built-in wardrobes. Further accommodation is available with the spacious loft, offering three well-proportioned rooms
    subject to the relevant permissions. The loft has been floored and is fitted with a WC.

    The conservatory doors open out to a spacious garden area at the front of the property, with multiple patio areas to enjoy the uninterrupted views over the coast. Steps leading from the front garden provide direct access onto the coastal pathway, locally known as ‘The Cliff Path'. The path follows a stretch of scenic coastline between Portstewart and Portrush and extends to a total of 7.1 miles in length. The boundary stone walls and gently undulating land to the rear of the property offer a great sense of privacy at Coolmara.

    The property also benefits from an integral garage with electric roller doors, providing for further parking or storage.
