SIT­TING on the coast in the beau­ti­ful Queen of the Glens area of Gle­nar­iff with a spec­tac­u­lar moun­tain back­drop and look­ing out across the sea, Fal­lowvee Cot­tage sim­ply can’t be beaten on lo­ca­tion.

Sum­mer or win­ter this home will cap­ti­vate with the nat­u­ral beauty of its sur­round­ings and a gar­den that reaches down to the wa­ter’s edge.

On a clear day the views look out to the Mull of Kin­tyre and the Isle of Jura and Is­lay.

There is also the po­ten­tial to build your own pier or slip­way if you fancy ex­plor­ing the coast by boat.

The area is one of the most stun­ning stretches of coast­line in North­ern Ire­land with the quaint sea­side towns of Gle­n­arm, Cushen­dal and Carn­lough all close by as is Gle­nar­iff For­est Park.

The house has an in­ter­est­ing his­tory hav­ing pre­vi­ously been part of Lady Lon­don­derry’s Es­tate and was gifted by her to Sir Win­ston Churchill.

It has been sen­si­tively up­dated and in­side of­fers quaint, com­fort­able ac­com­mo­da­tion with lots of char­ac­ter and yet it has an over­all mod­ern feel through­out.

It is also li­censed as rental ac­com­mo­da­tion and has won the Tourist Board “Cot­tage of the Year” award and in high sea­son can com­mand a hol­i­day rental of £600 a week.

This is one of those prop­er­ties that you re­ally do have to see to ap­pre­ci­ate and if the lo­ca­tion doesn’t win you over then the cosy in­te­rior just might.

There are two bed­rooms, a mod­ern bath­room, good sized kitchen and a liv­ing/din­ing room.

The liv­ing room is a per­fect sea­side re­treat with a rus­tic fire­place, old stone flagged floor and slid­ing dou­ble glazed doors bring­ing the sea view in and al­low­ing you easy ac­cess to the gar­den.

An arch­way leads from here into the kitchen which is fit­ted out with cream shaker style units and also fin­ished with an old flagged floor.

Up­stairs and there is a dou­ble bed­room with a fire­place and sea views and a twin bed­room with Velux roof win­dows.

The bath­room is spa­cious and fit­ted with a white suite which in­cludes a pan­elled bath with mixer taps and power tele­phone hand shower. There is at­trac­tive fea­ture til­ing on the walls and the floor has a traver­tine tiled floor.

Out­side the house is ac­cessed through dou­ble en­trance gates and there is a peb­bled drive with park­ing for sev­eral cars.

The gar­dens which stretch to the wa­ter’s edge are in grass and there is a for­mer pier which could be re­built as a birth for a boat.
