Description

One of the last remaining period properties in the area, Roselick Lodge was built in 1830 and sensitively restored and extended by the present owners between 2007 and 2009.  The sale of this fine, detached Georgian property, represents a superb and rare opportunity to acquire a highly prestigious period family home in Portstewart, immaculately refurbished and presented for 21st Century living.  While retaining the classic Georgian room plan and period feel of the 1830’s dwelling, the property has been greatly enhanced by the seamless addition of a modern, yet sympathetic, extension of similar dimensions to the original house, designed and presented as open-plan.

While enjoying an idyllically quiet rural setting, this stunning period property, extending to over 5000 sqft, is set in beautiful grounds of more than an acre located just over a mile from the sea and the towns of Portstewart and Portrush, and Coleraine is only 4 miles away.

In 2011, the house featured in the very popular BBC NI House of the Year television programme, eventually taking the Runner’s Up place.  The programme was presented by interior designer and architectural historian, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

He described the house as:- 

“An Irish Georgian charmer originally from 1830, which seduces the eye thanks to an energetic and extensive refurbishment by its current owners”
