A Brief History The house was orginally built by the "Close" family of Drumbanager in 1850's. The present owner has been in residence since 1992 and has been responsible for re-roofing and insulating both the residence and most of the well maintained slated roof outbuildings (2007), whilst retaining the original period features throughout. In 2006, the entrance to 'Kilbodagh' was greatly enhanced, following Roads Service improvements to the road frontage along the A27. Description 'Kilbodagh' is an attractive and substantial period home (Listed Grade B1) occupying an elevated position on approximately 2.8 acres mature gardens, between Newry and Poyntzpass along the A27. The property is approached by a sweeping gravel driveway surrounded with mature shrubs and flowerbeds with areas of seclusion and expansive lawns with organic vegetable patch. The mature trees include varying numbers of Oak, Beech & Lime, some of which would have been planted 150 years ago. It is a wonderful space in which to kick a ball and explore the hidden pathways through the trees; a place of relaxation and inspiration for both child and adult alike; a place to breathe and recharge. There is also the benefit of well-maintained outbuildings suitable for a variety of uses such as playroom, home office or possible conversion to separate accommodation (subject to planning approval). For those with leisure interests, there is a tarmac surfaced tennis court at the side of the property. Extending to slightly over 6,000sqft, this family home is relatively easy to manage and has the benefit of partial re-glazing in recent years.
