Lux­ury Liv­ing


Belfast Telegraph - Propertynews - - Front Page -

THE stuff of dreams, this sump­tu­ous mod­ern home has to be one of North­ern Ire­land’s finest.

It is not just a home but a life­style that you will be buy­ing with Le­gacurry Mill which comes with three sep­a­rate be­spoke prop­er­ties, a su­per­car garage, a spa, swim­ming pool, cinema, games room and cock­tail bar.

The sprawl­ing site with its own river me­an­der­ing through it fea­tures three sep­a­rate build­ings each with lux­ury ac­com­mo­da­tion.

It has taken seven years to build this one-off home which is owned by Ban­gor sausage man­u­fac­turer Kevin Mcwhin­ney.

The sprawl­ing 11,000sq ft prop­er­ties which fea­tures 10 bed­rooms, seven re­cep­tion rooms and six bath­rooms of­fers high spec liv­ing with un­der­floor heat­ing, air con­di­tion­ing and smart wiring.

Even the fur­ni­ture in the bed­rooms is be­spoke, de­signed es­pe­cially for the prop­erty.

The house is nes­tled in an acre of im­mac­u­late land­scaped gar­dens tended to by a gar­dener and with the River Ravar­net run­ning through it.

Mr Mcwhin­ney who is the 5th gen­er­a­tion of his fam­ily to run Mcwhin­neys sausage com­pany in Ban­gor, de­signed the home as three sep­a­rate prop­er­ties to ac­com­mo­date his mum, son as well as him and his wife.

He says: “It’s not just a house but a way of life. If some­body was go­ing to buy it just com­ing and hav­ing a look is not enough. They would need to sit in the bar and re­lax and have a swim in the pool at night and see the life that is on of­fer, it’s much more than bricks and mor­tar.”

This in­cred­i­ble pile starts with the main house, Le­gacurry Mill which has five en suite bed­rooms and four fan­tas­tic re­cep­tion ar­eas.

Sep­a­rate to this is the equally spec­tac­u­lar Le­gacurry House with three bed­rooms, two of which are en suite and two large re­cep­tion ar­eas over­look­ing Ravar­net River.

Le­gacurry Cot­tage com­pletes the lot and is styled as an an­nex per­fect for a granny flat/teenagers an­nex or for your very one live-in


The main house is ac­cessed from a front court­yard and fea­tures spa­cious and bright for­mal and in­for­mal en­ter­tain­ing ar­eas, pri­vate liv­ing quar­ters and open din­ing rooms de­signed to flow to out­door pa­tios.

Its five bed­rooms all fea­ture hand­made de­signer fur­ni­ture and three have en suite shower rooms. The other two have ac­cess to a large fam­ily bath­room with wa­ter­proof TV.

The four enor­mous bright re­cep­tion rooms are air con­di­tioned.

There is a large draw­ing room with open fire and cres­cent win­dow over­look­ing the river.

The state-of-the-art kitchen is be­spoke by Robin­sons with Cala­cada mar­ble and ce­ramic work tops and a range of Gagge­nau ap­pli­ances, plus twin is­land units.

There is an­other spa­cious liv­ing room which opens to a sun ter­race with sunken hot tub and a din­ing room with in­te­grated wine racks and doors open­ing to a rear court­yard.

An­other lounge leads to the fully equipped cock­tail bar which is the per­fect en­ter­tain­ing space or you can re­lax in the cinema room which has a big screen pro­jec­tor.

The spa is an­other deca­dent space with sauna, chang­ing rooms and wet room shower which in turn leads into an in­door swim­ming pool with tidal swim­ming jet.

The prop­erty is wired with Cat 7 ca­bling which dis­trib­utes au­dio visual through­out the home. It has wired and wire­less ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Most of the down­stairs rooms have un­der­floor heat­ing.

Le­gacurry House sits separately on the plot and is an­other stunner with the same high spec.

Through the large en­trance foyer is an air con­di­tioned open plan liv­ing/kitchen/din­ing room built over the River with gor­geous views.

On the lower ground floor there are air con­di­tioned mas­ter king size and queen size bed­rooms, both with be­spoke wardrobes and en suite shower rooms.

There is also a study with built in fur­ni­ture in­clud­ing a fold down bed.

A lower ground floor has a large hall­way with a sit­ting area and a built in li­brary wall.

Off this is a full bath­room with free stand­ing bath, wa­ter­proof TV and over­sized wet room.

This prop­erty also has a large util­ity/dry­ing room and a games room with a full size snooker ta­ble, Amer­i­can pool ta­ble and a be­spoke sit up bar, kitch­enette and WC.

The third build­ing, Le­gacurry Cot­tage is de­signed like an an­nex with a large air con­di­tioned liv­ing room, full kitchen and util­ity, one bed­room with a walk in dress­ing room and a lux­ury shower room.

In the back court­yard there is a fur­ther de­tached build­ing with slid­ing glass doors which is be­ing used to house su­per­cars although it is built and in­su­lated to house stan­dards and could be used for any num­ber of pur­poses.

There is a sep­a­rate en­trance and stair­way up to a large of­fice with lux­ury book­cases, fil­ing cab­i­nets, oak floor­ing, fully wired for TV, in­ter­net and tele­phone and a sep­a­rate stor­age unit.

As you would ex­pect the beau­ti­ful grounds which ex­tend to an acre have been pro­fes­sion­ally land­scaped and are tended by a gar­dener.

There is am­ple park­ing and turn­ing ar­eas in both front and back court­yards and both have elec­tronic gates.

The lawns roll to­wards the river and have bar­beque ar­eas and a raised ter­race with hot tub ac­cessed via en­ter­tain­ing ar­eas of the main home and the spa.

This pri­vate ru­ral site is only five min­utes drive from Lis­burn city cen­tre and the M1 Mo­tor­way net­work.
