A STUNNING COASTAL PROPERTY OCCUPYING A PRIME LOCATION ON THE SHORES OF CARLINGFORD LOUGH
‘Sennen House’ is a spectacular 19th Century Victorian six-bedroom family villa full of historic charm occupying one of the finest coastal locations in Warrenpoint with panoramic views across Carlingford Lough, Slieve Foy and the Cooley Mountains. This remarkable home offers a unique opportunity to own a waterfront period property on a mature site extending to approx. 0.8 acres.
The property was designed by architect WJ Barre, a native of Newry and well known for his architectural style and quality, designing splendid buildings such as the Ulster Hall, Belfast’s Albert Clock, University Road Methodist Church, Danesfort along with many other historical buildings throughout Northern Ireland. Sennen House was constructed in the early 1800’s and thoughtfully expanded and improved to preserve its historic charm. The current owners operate a thriving B&B business at the property with plans to evolve the offering into a full time 7-day operation. The B&B enjoys excellent annual occupancy with high average room rates and repeat custom. It is one of the highest rated properties in the Newry and Mourne area on sites such as Airbnb, Booking.com and Trip advisor demonstrating huge potential to grow the existing enterprise with a recent recommendation from Georgina Campbell.
Sennen House offers many uses as a substantial family home with 6 bedrooms or its current use as a home/Bed & Breakfast or can be further divided into a good sized family home with a two bed/two bath apartment that can be rented out short/long term or offers independent living for a relative who wants their independence but being close to loved ones under one roof.
For the lucky new owner of Sennen house, a sweeping staircase leading to an imposing galleried landing, will greet them daily, as will well-appointed reception rooms, perfect for entertaining. The majority of Sennen House has maintained its original detailing with some modern additions combining timeless grandeur along with period charm. This is a unique and rare opportunity to purchase in one of the most sought-after locations in the greater Newry and Mourne area.

Sennen house sits on just under one acre of well manicured gardens, set on an elevated site which enjoys panoramic views of Carlingford Lough and Slieve Foy. The property benefits from being only 10 minutes’ walk to Warrenpoint town centre as well as walking distance to a bus stop and the shore front.
A large, paved, stone terrace to the immediate front of the property approx. 14 meters x 7 meters in size benefits from this wonderful southern aspect, catching prime sunlight during the day. A shaped box hedge to the perimeter of the terrace adds definition.
A further “sunken” paved terrace on the east of the property gives added privacy and enjoys direct sunlight all day whilst enjoying the tranquil sounds of the stream which runs the length of the property and connects into Carlingford Lough. Potential Hydro-energy scope exists due to the 5.5meter “fall/head” in the water heights on the property.
The gardens have colour all year round including holly, daffodils, bluebells, mature camelia, extensive rhododendron, roses, heather, tulips, lilies, blue and white hydrangea, bamboo, laurel, white cherry blossom and clematis to name a few of the wide varieties growing.
Trees include red Japanese maple, sliver and cooper beech, eucalyptus, sycamore, ash, with centuries old birch and Lyme adding gravitas to the site. A small herb garden and terraced lawn finish the grounds with ample space for children to play safely watched from the southern terrace.
The main entrance, driveway, house door entrances and enclosed yard have feature decorative granite stone, kerbs and granite steps to terraces and front garden. The main driveway which is tarred gives way to a gravelled area with raised flower beds, ample parking for a large number of vehicles and has an electric vehicle charging point installed. The main entrance and driveway have sensor lights for darkness / movement. The house main façade has a floodlight.
A rear yard area is enclosed by a 3.5 meter high stone wall with some ivy leading to the workshop/ former coach house with elegant arched stonework, original stables and access to the large hayloft which is now a games room with whitewashed stone walls and access to the enclosed original cobblestone inner courtyard.
