Additional Information

Offering for sale this unique opportunity to purchase this superb beachfront property for the first time in over 50 years. 'St Ives' 7 Kearney Road, Portaferry is believed to date back to around 1875 and originally comprised of two Fisherman's cottages. The subject property has been developed over the years to form one large detached cottage, commanding panoramic vistas over Knockinelder Bay with its 8 acre sandy beach and shallow pristine waters, and further across the Irish Sea toward the Isle of Man where the mountains are visible on a clear day, St Ives presents a very special piece of shorefront property on the open market today.

The subject property is ideally perched on the very edge of Knockinelder beach, in the centre of bay, and is surrounded by privately owned and protected National Trust farmland. There are beautiful views across to Quintan Castle and offers views to Tara Hill in the neighbouring Millin Bay, the National Trust village at Kearney is only a few minutes' drive away also.

The clear waters located in front of St Ives continually change reflecting weather conditions and offer an almost panoramic horizon of the water, bracing sea air, abundant wildlife including seal spotting and also provides direct access to the beach via its private slipway, and will therefore also be of interest to sailing, bathing, kayaking and wind surfing enthusiast's. This fantastic property would be the perfect spot to have as a full time residence or private second home to retreat to at the end of the working week.

Interest levels are expected to be high, to arrange your own private viewing appraisal please contact our Newtownards branch on 02891 800700.
