Clokey House is undoubtedly one of County Downs’ most impressive contemporary luxury homes offering the best of both worlds: luxury country living with towns and cities nearby. This magnificent home was architect designed and built in 2010 for the current owners to an extremely high specification where the focus is on luxury modern living and on maximising the stunning natural environment. The thoughtful and creative design has produced a property that presents the owners with the opportunity to experience an impressive lifestyle where modernism blends naturally with homeliness and where inside living flows smoothly to the outdoors.
To maximise views and privacy, the main living areas and master bedroom are on the first level whilst the bedrooms on the ground level open out through French-style doors to the garden. This unique and innovative layout is continued outside where there are a variety of terraces and balconies surrounded by neat and compact gardens which form a spectacular backdrop to the tree canopies, fields, lake and mountain range.
The Spa area has the enviable position of being only 15 miles from Belfast and at the same time is surrounded by popular tourist attractions and leisure opportunities such as National Trust properties, Royal County Down Golf Club, sailing clubs, beautiful forests and stunning beaches.
Whilst close to all these attractions, Clokey House is positioned far enough off the main road to provide privacy, peace and seclusion without feeling isolated as all the amenities of a village and small market town are close by and there is a bus route at the end of lane.
Clokey House offers that rare combination of luxury living and location. An opportunity to view Clokey House should not be missed!
