Spectacular Scottish house with private beach

Knock Bay House is situated in one of the most breathtaking positions on the Rhins peninsula on the west coast of Scotland. The house is surrounded by 42 acres of its own land and has views down to its own private beach and out over the Irish Sea.

This recently built house has been exceptionally well finished. It has been designed with the views mostly in mind and all the main rooms look out over the beach and the sea. There are good reception rooms including a bright drawing room, spacious dining room and a sitting room located near the kitchen/breakfast room which doubles up as a sun room.

Upstairs are five bedrooms including the master bedroom suite, which again has incredible views, and a family bathroom.

Outside the grounds consist of a formal garden, a track from which provides access to the private beach and the paddocks which are suitable for horses or sheep. The rest of the grounds are rough grassland or to the north is a wooded glen through which the Knock Burn flows.

Knock Bay House is located just three miles from the village of Portpatrick on the south western tip of mainland Scotland, which benefits from a pleasant climate thanks to the Gulf Stream. The village is predominantly wrapped around its harbour and caters for everyday needs.

The guide price is £950,000. For further information please contact Knight Frank on 0131 222 9600 or visit
