Additional Information

Full details can be found at:

The property is located in one of two terraces, built to house quarry workers in the early to mid1800's, when White Harbour was also built so that the lime stone from the local quarry could be more easily exported, The quarry closed in the 1920s, and as the occupation of the cottages diminished and ended, the cottages were bought up and passed on, or sold to the current owners. The cottages are not visible from the main Carrickfergus to Larne Road, as they are tucked into the side of the hill overlooking far below, the railway line, and beyond that the Irish Sea with the Copeland Islands, the Isle of Man and Scotland in the distance. This cottage which is in the middle of the second terrace, is occupied by the present owner who only wants to sell and move to Scotland for family reasons. There are 15 cottages in two terraces of nine and six, accessed on foot down Quay Lane. The cottage comprises of a living room with uninterrupted views from the front window. There is a solid stone floor in the living room, with the heating coming from a coal and wood burning stove, with an ornate carved wooden surround and mantle. Double glass panelled doors open to a compact kitchen with range cooker, and a beside it a modern cooker with ceramic hob and double oven under, fitted high and low level units complete the space. Beyond there is a Utility Room with additional storage space. Stairs lead from just inside the front door to the first floor which is comprised of a front facing double bedroom, with a fitted wardrobe, to the rear a single bedroom, and a family bathroom in white with basin, W.C. and a shower cubicle,

In addition to the immediate amenity ground to the front of the property which comprises this Lot, there is additional land measuring Circa 2Acres which can be purchased separately by the winning bidder. The land accommodates garden space, orchards, Bee Hives , vegetable garden, sheds, steeply sloping wooded land to the rear, and most significantly what the current owner calls the Hobby Shed, which is the detached first building, as the second terrace is approached down Quarry Lane. The Hobby Shed comprises of a large open space which is used by the owner in connection with her bees and the production of honey. There is also a W,C, with wash basin, and a small fitted kitchen. The structure could be adapted to a variety of uses, subject to planning approval. To sum up this is an opportunity to buy a beautiful 19th Century cottage in immaculate condition, in an almost unique setting with wonderful sea views to the front, and benefitting from many local amenities including schools, shops, transport links and quick and easy access to Carrickfergus Town Centre. in one direction, and the world famous Antrim Coast road in the other.
