Ever wondered what it may be like to live in one of the famous Game Of Thrones locations and access your house through a cave? Wonder no longer.
Situated on the Cave Road in Cushendun is The Cave House, an historical 18th Century dwelling.
Now you can feel what it would be like to live in the HBO series with a private avenue meandering through caves, leading to a tranquil location, protected by the neighboring Cushendun cliffs. It is these cliffs that provide the background to The Stormlands location on the hit series.
This was the residence of Nicholas de la Cherois Crommelin during the 19th Century. Crommelin’s grand-daughter Constance married John Masefield in 1903, the “poet of the sea” who became England’s poet laureate.
The poet spent his honeymoon at Cushendun where, gazing across the waters of the North Channel, it is easy to imagine that the well-known lines: “Dirty British Coaster with a salt caked smoke stack butting through the Channel in the mad March days” were written here.
The site encompasses approximately 7.9 acres and boasts uninterrupted sea views embracing Torr Point and the Mull of Kintyre towards Scotland.
Sisters of Mercy also called this property home and it is one of the most tranquil locations that is best appreciated from sea or air. It can also be seen at a distance from Torr Road at the north of the village.
The residence is in shell condition and requires total renovation/demolition with a contemporary build.
