South Airies Farmhouse was re-built on the site of the original house ruin in 2008. The old horse and cow byre was retained and is now the games room. Stone from the house was used to build the round tower which connects upstairs and downstairs via the graceful curved oak staircase and provides striking views to the Irish Sea and over towards Larne and Belfast. The house is extremely spacious and very comfortable and cosy with underfloor heating throughout the downstairs and radiators in the rooms upstairs. There are four bedrooms sleeping 8 people which can be made up either as twins or doubles. An extra 4 fold-down beds are stored in cupboards in the gamesroom and can be used for extra children if necessary giving it a full capacity of 12 beds.(Quite exciting for kids!)
The gamesroom leads into the utility room and then through to the large kitchen and dining area, opening to the family room complete with TV and an openhearth fire. Adjoining the family room is a more formal lounge. Finally at the bottom of the hallway there is an ensuite bedroom complete with wetroom, making it suitable for anyone unable to use the stairs. The openplan design of the downstairs provides superb views of the entire surrounding countryside from the well-positioned windows and French doors.
Upstairs consists of a wide landing leading into a study, another ensuite bedroom and two other bedroms sharing a generous bathroom and shower. All the upstairs windows have superb views.
