We are delighted to offer for sale Victoria House which is undoubtedly one of the most significant family homes presented to the market within recent years. The property enjoys breath-taking views over Carlingford Lough in one of the area's most delightful and peaceful residential locations.

Built in the mid-1890s for the Girls Friendly Society of Ireland, who asked for and received Royal permission to call it the Queen Victoria Home in 1901, the house was originally known as the "House of Rest", and a "home of rest for sick and weary members". The Girls Friendly Society was founded in London in 1875 by an Irishwoman – Mrs Elizabeth Townsend to support girls who came from the country to work in the city, and to teach them skills which would enable them to gain employment. It was the first girls' or women's organisation in the Church of England. After the Second World War it closed and was re-opened as the Glencairn Guest House, now restored and extended into a grand family home.

This part of County Down has become synonymous with some of the country's most desirable homes with improved road links and the railway from Newry meaning Belfast and Dublin are easily accessible within c. 1 hour, along with the ferry connecting Greencastle and Greenore.

The house itself has extensive accommodation laid out over three floors providing a six bedroom layout, all with ensuite, together with a selection of magnificent reception rooms including a formal drawing room, dining room and family room with all principal rooms enjoying panoramic views over the Lough. In addition, the property benefits from a superb swimming pool complex with Jacuzzi, sauna and shower rooms.

This important sale represents a truly unique opportunity to purchase a wonderful home in one of Northern Ireland's most delightful locations. Viewing is strictly by private appointment through our Belfast office on 028 9066 8888.
