This new 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom waterfront apartment is situated in a luxury complex in Greencastle, known as the 'The Fort' built in the grounds of the historic Napoleonic Fort and Martello Tower. The Fort stands on a cliff top overlooking Lough Foyle and is a short walk away from the famous Greencastle fishing village, golf course and Magilligan Ferry (15 minute crossing takes you to the North Coast of Northern Ireland - Portrush, Portstewart, Castlerock etc.) The Greencastle Martello Tower, chosen for its strategic prominence was built c.1801 on the very same rocky outcrop as the much earlier adjacent Northburgh Castle. The Inishowen coastline has some of the most picturesque landscapes in Ireland with many award winning golden beaches. Most of the peninsula has been designated a European special area of conservation helping to protect migrating birds and indigenous wildlife. The surrounding waters are renowned for their variety of fresh fish making Greencastle one of the busiest fishing ports in the country. Local amenities include golf (6 golf courses in the Inishowen area), sailing or water skiing on Lough Foyle, horse riding, fishing, walking, climbing and cycling. A 15 minute car ferry service to Magilligan Strand in Northern Ireland operates in the Summer. The local village, a walk away is renowned for its restaurants featuring fresh fish and its lively pubs. There is a scenic shore walk to the village and golf course. Derry City Centre with its comprehensive shopping, and recreational facilities is accessible in approximately 25 minutes by car. There are also other retail outlets a similar drive away. The Fort is steeped in historical significance and is located in a private road with several houses and two apartment buildings each comprising of 8 Apartments. Number 38 is in the second apartment complex situated at the end of the private road. The interior of this particular apartment was finished in 2014 (the last apartment to be completed). The finish is gold star with honeycombe sinquastone worktop and solid oak kitchen units. There are three bedrooms, the master with en-suite shower room has a king size bed and fitted wardrobes, the double bedroom with double bed and fitted wardrobes plus a third bedroom with two single beds and fitted mirrored wardrobes. The family bathroom with double sinks is located close to the latter bedrooms. The terrace is furnished with table and chairs and you can sit outside the kitchen sipping your morning cup of tea and only the dolphins can see you. Loungers and beach chairs are provided in the apartment for your comfort. The property has just been fitted with broadband so there is free WiFI. More

How to get there
This magnificent apartment with phenomenal views and large secure private gated terrace, overlooks Lough Foyle. Dolphins and other sea life are clearly visible from the apartment as well as fishing boats, cruise boats and the ferry from Magilligan to Greencastle. The pubs and restaurant and takeaway are just a short walk away. Similarly with the Golf - just walk there. The walks, especially the coastal paths are breathtakingly beautiful- with so much to explore. If you fancy some retail therapy there are two shopping centres in Londonderry - Debenhams, Marks and Spencer, etc. TK Max is located at one of the retails parks.
