This truly exceptional detached family residence is situated off the highly sought after Asghrove Road, Newry. The property is known as 'Glencar' and was originally constructed in 1926 for the owners of Willis Bakery. No expense was spared on this four bedroom property when constructed and the current owners who took up residence in 1991 have continued this attention to detail with various additions over the years. Many of the original features have been maintained and take you back to a bygone age where quality and craftmanship was the order of the day and this will only be appreciated upon viewing.
This is more than a special home… this is what can only be described as a life changing opportunity for one very lucky family! From the moment you start your journey up the lane it is clear you are going to be met by something very impressive. The property itself extends to approximately 3200 square feet, and is situated on a corner site fronting the Ashgrove Road set in approximately one acre of private mature gardens with extensive lawns and low maintenance landscaping. It has enough space and accommodation for a large family and provides a selection of reception rooms and generous bedrooms – all of it bursting with class and charm. Whilst its mature setting enjoys considerable privacy and seclusion, the location is extremely convenient to the city centre, the Dublin/Belfast A1 and leading primary and grammar schools.

Outside the property has a Games Room to the side (which used to be the Old Coach House), and this can be accessed from the main residence. The property benefits from a triple garage to the rear which offers plenty of storage. A feature that is sure to be a hit with families is the superb tennis court which can also be used as a football pitch, a putting green and is complimented by the chalet style timber summer house which is elevated above. The gardener's cottage at the rear is currently been used as a gym and has a built-in sauna and separate shower. There is a conservatory off the gardener's cottage which is ideal for some quiet time. The property is surrounded by mature gardens with a selection of spring/summer flowering cherry trees, mature acer trees and hornbeams.
