Rory McIlory’s childhood home is on the market

The former home of one of Northern Ireland’s most successful golf players has gone of the market for offers over £239,950. This is where the current world’s number 6, Rory McIlory, practiced his talents growing up.

This four bedroom, semi-detached house rests in the Strathearn Court area of Co. Down.

For all those budding golf players out there, this property boasts a purpose built artificial putting green while the garage has been renovated for an aspiring world-class golfer to practice their winning swing.

This room as been wired for “video analysis” with two televisions and a green screen wall to perfect your drive, an aspect that is often referred to as Rory’s strength.

Selling agent John Minnis regards this as a “fabulous opportunity to purchase this beautifully presented red brick semi-detached property which is the former family home of world class golfer Rory McIlory.”

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, John highlights that there has been a lot of interest, but there is no Rory-factor seen in the price.

This was the home he was brought up in. If you have seen the pictures of him chipping balls into the washing machine, that was in this house.

“It’s a great property in a great location and no matter who it was, it will sell.”
