Victorian-style Beachhouse

It`s a three-storey heritage listed stone building built in 1872, with my house being the middle one. The first floor lounge and front-facing bedrooms have amazing views of the beach and across the North Atlantic. There is a small yard in the back. We have a gas-powered Weber, a surfboard and a sit-on-top kayak in the yard. The ground floor still needs some small refurbishment but is fully-functional. The lounge, office(spare bedroom) and bathroom are on the first floor, with three well-appointed bedrooms (King, double, double) on the second floor. There is a gym in the attic. The famous author, CS Lewis, spent his Summer vacations in this house as a boy.

About the location

The house is literally yards from one of the best beaches on the Causeway Coast, on the main street of the peaceful seaside resort Castlerock. It is a 10 minute walk along to the famous Downhill demense to the west, and a 5 minute walk to the Castlerock Golf Club (a famous Links course) to the East. The village has hourly train links to both Derry and Belfast. The village itself has a grocery store, a butchers, a bakery, a bar and several cafes, and two churches, all within a 2 minute walk from the house.
