Additional Information

Cushendun is a picturesque and quaint Ulster village situated in the coast of County Antrim approximately 50 miles north of Belfast, 30 miles north of Larne and 35 miles east of Antrim with the North Coast some 30 miles away.

The Cave House is an historical 18th Century residence which occupies a situation probably unparalleled anywhere in Northern Ireland. The approach to the house is one of the main features and unique in its nature. The private avenue winding through the caves leading to a wonderful panoramic setting completely secluded and sheltered by the surrounding cliffs.

It was here that Nicholas de la Cherois Crommelin lived during the middle years of the 19th Century. In 1903, Crommelin's grand-daughter Constance married John Masefield the "poet of the sea" who was to become England's poet laureate. Masefield spent his honeymoon at Cushendun where, looking out across the waters of the North Channel, it is possible to imagine that the famous lines:

"Dirty British Coaster with a salt caked smoke stack
butting through the Channel in the mad March days"

might easily have been written here.

The site itself extends to approximately 7.9 acres and enjoys uninterrupted sea views embracing Torr Point and the Mull of Kintyre towards Scotland. The property was home to the Sisters of Mercy and is undoubtedly one of the most secluded of retreats, best seen from sea or air, however can be glimpsed at a distance from Torr Road at the north of the village.

The property, which was once a magnificent residence, is now in a shell condition and requires total restoration/demolition and replacement with a more modern contemporary build (subject to relevant permissions).
