Killowen Cottage nestles at the foot of the Mourne Mountains in its own private cove on Carlingford Lough about 3 miles from Rostrevor. The present dwelling was built in 2001 to replace the former cottage built in the 1930s, and is blessed with mature gardens developed during the 1940s and 1950s by Major and Mrs Reside, the then owners.
It is approached by a brick paver driveway which is surrounded with mature shrubs and flower beds, with areas of seclusion and expansive lawns and woodlands.

It is a wonderful space in which to explore the hidden pathways and the beachfront, a place to relax and recharge.
Extending to approximately 5,000 sq ft, this family home is easy to manage and occupies a site of approximately 2 acres. The outbuildings include a coal store and spacious boiler house.

Closing Date For Offers 29th November 2019 (Unless Previously Sold)


These have been beautifully and intelligently designed, taking advantage of the well-drained and light soil to grow pine trees and hedges which shelter the gardens, to create a fine and significant collection of interesting trees and shrubs including a mature specimen of Pieris 'Daisy Hill'. This shrub boasts attractive white flowers and glossy green leaves and was first selected at the famous nurseries at Daisy Hill, Newry. Other plants include the large and beautiful Lemonwood tree (Pittosporum Eugenioides), which is an attractive, golden leaved tree from the forests of New Zealand, and is rarely seen in the UK or Ireland; also a large Acradenia Frankliniae, a rare tree from Tasmania which has pretty white flowers in early summer. The moist and acidic soil enables the garden to have an impressive display of Rhododendrons, Camellias and Azaleas which thrive in the sheltered position. The particular plants were chosen by the Resides to provide an almost year round display of colour and scent with minimum maintenance. All together they provide a wonderful surround and create a secluded atmosphere to the house.

The gardens, which were renowned throughout Ireland, were featured on several occasions on television, and for many years were regularly opened to the public under the National Trust's Garden Scheme.
