More Than A House
One Seaview has been a family home in Portstewart for decades. Originally a 3 bedroom bungalow, the architect owner developed an innovate extension to the rear of the property that added 4 extra rooms upstairs, all within the existing roof line so that from the front it appears as if a traditional bungalow.
Beyond the substantial accommodation, the main appeal of the house and the reason for the major extension is of course the outstanding westerly view. This must be one of Ireland’s most beautiful stretches of coastline: along Portstewart strand to the Mussenden Temple, Castlerock and on to Donegal. Even in bad weather the house provides opportunities to watch nature at her finest: storms, rain fronts, sunlight bursts over the bay and spectacular skies, often all on one day. There is always a set of binoculars beside the upstairs lounge window.
The house is 3 minutes drive from Portstewart Golf Club and the entrance to Portstewart Strand. It is 2 minute drive or 6-7 minute walk from Portstewart promenade, take the convent wall walk from Portnahapple if you dare.
A Note on General Condition
Bedroom 5 upstairs is currently set up as a photography darkroom with integral counter but can readily be transformed into a single bedroom or home office.
The conservatory area was updated around 5 years ago from a previous wooden version. There is a single car garage with a working up and over door however the door wood will need attention. There is an oil fired heating system with timer plus economy 7. There is a small attic area.
The house had been let to excellent tenants until recently and whilst it has been maintained along the way through the letting agent, it is most definitely in need of modernisation and updating throughout. Rather than undertake this ourselves and the new owner then re-do it to their style, the house is presented as it is.
It is rare for a house with this accommodation, view and size of site to become available in Portstewart, it offers potential for different types of buyers from family ownership, holiday home, buy to let or even potentially to a developer considering alternative use for the large plot.
The owner believes that the property will sell quickly and would encourage early registration of interest with the agent – details on the contact page
