Raise the Roof


Sitting in a delightful beach front hamlet, Red Roofs Cottage is a property full of character where inside and out you will be wowed by what’s on offer.

The interior has been finished with top notch cottage charm with many quaint features which create a home oozing comfort and warmth.

The idyllic location is right on the edge of Coney Island Bay.

Old stone walls surround the property which has a large enclosed rear courtyard with a boathouse/garage and the added bonus of a really striking modern studio which has full views of the bay.

The accommodation includes a glazed porch with seating, a wonderful living/kitchen/dining room, utility room and master bedroom with adjacent deluxe bedroom. There is also planning permission for two additional bedrooms with en suites and a dressing room, plus additional sitting room. A really wonderful open plan kitchen/living/dining room is a huge but cosy space with feature beams giving it the feel and look of an old Irish cottage.

The tiled floor blends in beautifully as does the brick fireplace with Blacksmith multi-fuel stove which sits on a raised mantle.

The kitchen is quirky in design with a good range of wooden cabinets with granite worktops.

A Rangemaster stove with extractor fan plus island unit with granite worktop are the perfect addition to this cosy cottage style space.

The wooden beams and tiled floor theme continues in the hallway and upstairs where the bedroom is in keeping with the cottage style with more beams, a tiled floor and feature stone brick wall. It too enjoys views over the bay.

Even the shower room has feature beams and a handmade tiled mosaic splash back with wooden beam shelf above a wooden vanity unit. There is a high flush WC and an enclosed shower cubicle with both a fixed and removable shower head.

The house also has a utility room with more beams and low level units, a Belfast sink with room for a washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge. Patio doors open to the rear. Outside the studio is finished with a laminate wooden floor and sits on a raised deck with front views over the bay.

There are easily maintained gardens with a pebbled driveway with ample parking, feature red brick paving and patio area, plus a shed and outside WC.
