A prestige site offering a prime location, an imaginative design, exceptional space and superb views. This is a unique opportunity to construct a dream house and although unseen at present, much of the groundwork necessitated by a difficult topography, has already been completed, offering considerable cost savings to the purchaser. This labour of love can now be progressed as a once in a lifetime project.
The contemporary cube design is the creation of award winning architects McGarry Moon and this impacts on the site and on the imagination. The 4/5 bedroom 3000 sq. ft split level and very design, harmoniously combines inside and outside living space to maximise the style and topography of the site and to offer a unique living experience, that fully embraces the natural beauty of the surrounding countryside and the panoramic views beyond. The minimalistic ambience of the cube design, with it’s oversized windows and cantilevered lounge, is particularly striking in this elevated position.
The location itself is a key feature of this wonderful proposition. Only a ten minute drive from Coleraine town centre, a full range of amenities, including schools and shops are at your convenience. As acommuter base, Limavady and Ballymoney are within a twenty minute drive, with Derry/Londonderry only thirty five minutes away and Belfast and the International airport within an hours drive. The jewel in the crown however is the causeway coast, running from Castlerock to Ballycastle, this land of myths and legends, championship golf courses and blue flag beaches, is pretty much on your doorstep. From Castlerock, which is only a fifteen minute drive away, you can access world class golfing, sailing, and walking routes, which lie against a backdrop of stunning scenery and historical ruins, archaeological highlights and wonderful folklore. This is also a wonderful area to raise a family, with a superb range of amenities, first class schools and even a university, all on hand. This is an opportunity not to be missed.
The site occupies an elevated position above the Shinny Road on a rocky outcrop, which was not without its challenges in creating an access and laying the foundations of this imaginative creation. Much work has gone into site preparation, with ground works already completed. This will therefore allow the purchaser to commence building works without delay and with a lesser degree of difficulty.
A sweeping drive, climbing from the Shinny Road and skirting the natural rock formation, will take you to the house and the front forecourt which lies in the shade of a cantilevered lounge above looking out into the Bann Valley.
The base drive is already constructed and will provide essential access to facilitate building works. The current owners have invested considerable, time, effort and funds on site works and their efforts will be invaluable to a prospective purchaser who can now view this project in a more straight forward fashion, with the only task in hand the building of this marvellous home.Set in approximately two acres, natural landscape here already offers some outstanding natural features in rock structure and vegetation.The planning and landscaping opportunity presented by such a site, should stir the imagination in creating a design that fully complements the house. For those that are outrageously ambitious the vendor is willing to offer a further two acres adjacent to the site, which would truly elevate this building project to the exceptional.
