BUILT IN 2003 by the current owners and aptly named Le Rêve (The Dream), a number of style influences juxtapose to create this eclectic five bedroom and five bathroom home in Newry, Co Down.

Set on a 1.3 acre site,  Le Rêve is a nod to the New England style due to the hand painting that is consistent throughout the house, as well as solid mahogany doors and hand blocked effect patterns on the walls.

A stone, four-sided fireplace takes pride of place in the grand hallway. Working just as hard as it looks good, it makes heating four surrounding rooms a doddle. With doors leading to the rest of the house and an elegant staircase that brings you up to the overlooking landings, this impressive space acts as the true heart of the home.

A number of this home’s busiest rooms, including the kitchen, make up an open plan space that promotes social family living. Patio doors from the dining space lead to a paved outdoor area that’s ideal for entertaining.

The kitchen features Tudorwood hand-painted cabinets under a Spanish style rouge textured plaster cathedral ceiling. Traditional yet kitted out for the modern chef, a space for a large family fridge, a nook for a modern range cooker and tough countertops show that this space means business.

The landing almost provides an extra sitting room or den in itself and leads off to the five bedrooms. Other areas on the landing make for perfect studies and reading nooks with wonderful views of the surrounding lawn that’s dotted with stone features.

This home uses space really wisely. Upstairs, the transformed attic is the perfect hideaway, games room or chill out space. It could easily be renovated for more accommodation, too.

The things you can’t see are some of the the most impressive features in this home. With surround sound throughout, underfloor heating and a built-in vacuum system, Le Rêve puts luxury and hassle-free living first.
