Property description

Newcastle is noted for the friendly welcome of its residents, its unique setting at the foot of Slieve Donard and on the Irish Sea, the stunning scenery and the historic homes and castles within easy driving range.

This home provides a relaxed and safe base for your family as you explore this area of outstanding beauty.

The house has 3 double bedrooms, sleeps up to 6 people and has private off street parking. There is also a Living Room, Sun Room, Dining Room and Eat-In Kitchen.

The location is ideal for visiting local attractions, dining out and a variety of outdoor activities.

There are stunning views of Slieve Donard from the living room and sun room. Fully renovated and upgraded in the spring of 2013.

The house is a 7 minute walk from the Newcastle Beach and Promenade which have stunning views of the Irish Sea and Slieve Donard mountain.

It is an ideal launching pad for playing the famous Royal County Down golf course, venue for the 2015 Irish Open, as it is only a 10 minute walk.

Some of our travelers have also come to climb Slieve Donard. You can start your trek up the mountain right from the house.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: This home is owned by a brother and sister that grew up in the South Down area and we have extensive family in and around the town of Newcastle.

Why the Owner Chose Newcastle, UK:
Our family are from the Newcastle area and this has been our family home since the 1990's. We grew up in Downpatrick, a historic town 14 miles from Newcastle. One of us lives locally and the other lives in the USA, visiting and staying in this home as often as is possible.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
This home is ideally situated for relaxed exploration, golf enthusiasts (Royal County Down, Ardglass, Downpatirck and Kilkeel Golf Courses) and those wishing to enjoy the stunning scenery and amenities available in the South Down area. The location is perfect for people of all ages since the walk to the center of town is totally flat and takes about 7 minutes. It is also ideal for those with or without cars given the extensive bus system from the town and the wealth of amenities available within walking distance of the house. Tollymore Forest park is about a mile away and is perfect for family picnics, hiking or relaxing with beautiful mountain views. Explore the Hermits Cave and the Stepping Stones across the river.
