Perched on a cliff looking over the Irish Sea, Killantringan Light Keepers House and its neighboring cottage elegantly combine tradition and the comforts of modern living.
The Lighthouse Cottage, a detached single-storey cottage, offers three bedrooms and a public room, making it ideal to host visitors or a dependant relative.
A small conservatory, facing south, allows for an unobstructed view over the cliffs and sea, as well as parts of the grassed area surrounding the property.
Three acres of land stretch from the lighthouse to the Fog Horn, from where a steeper slope extends to the high water mark.
Six bedrooms make up the main building’s ground floor; two of them come with en-suite shower rooms while a separate bathroom is available for the remaining four bedrooms.
On the first floor, an open-plan combination of kitchen, dining/living room and study caters to all needs and offers access to the north and south terraces, making it ideal to entertain guests or just enjoy a quiet night in.
Although the main tower is not accessible, the property’s first floor more than makes up for this by offering a dramatic, unlimited view of the coastline, the sea and the surrounding green hills.
Closest to the lighthouse is the village of Porpatrick, approximately four miles away from the property; it caters to all everyday needs with a general store, various pubs and restaurants, a post office and a hotel.
Offering a range of retail and cultural opportunities, as well as professional services and secondary schooling, is Stranraer, a town roughly nine miles away.
Dumfries and Galloway offers a mix of scenic coastal routes and nearly untouched forests, ideal for cycling, sailing and fishing; a 20 minute drive leads golfers to three different courses and world famous Turnberry golf course is all but an hour away.
Killantringan Light Keepers House, priced at £485,000 (€685,766, $761,838), is sold by Knight Frank.
