Property Description

As one of County Down's most iconic landmarks, the station house was originally built in 1897 with the proviso that it be 'of an ornamental character' hence the beautiful detailing on the exterior elevations and the significance of it being the only red brick building of its kind in Northern Ireland.

A new covered footbridge was built across the newly laid double tracks to link the two platforms, and was in fact incorporated into the building. This was the only such covered footbridge on the County Down Railway system, and although removed after the Second World War, the first steps of the footbridge are still in place.

The stationmaster's house was a private dwelling between 1937 and 1957 and was awarded Grade B1 Listed status in 2007 due to its local historical and architectural importance.

The station appeared in a short film produced during the Second World War entitled 'A Letter From Ulster' a story of US troops based in Northern Ireland. It is depicted in the film as a station in a remote area of County Fermanagh, but was chosen as a location because of its beautiful unique elevations, close proximity to Belfast and wonderful rural ambience of its setting.

The property represents the most complete survival of a 19th century station ensemble, it is a scarce example of a combined station and station master's residence.

A SYMPATHETIC RESTORATION AND REDEVELOPMENT

Cultra Station was sold into private ownership as a residence in 1937 but has lain vacant in recent years.

The careful restoration and redevelopment of this beautiful example of late Victorian railway architecture has taken 5 years in the design process and has been undertaken by Davcrowe Ltd. Meticulous attention to detail is present in every aspect, and the craftsmanship is evident throughout. The result is simply outstanding.

The stationmaster's house's unique features of red brick walls with a strata of blue engineering brick, a bevelled brick plinth, two decorative terracotta stringcourses and a terracotta eaves course have all been restored to form 2 stunning homes with period style and contemporary elegance.

The suburban station grounds have been sensitively developed to form a small, private, gated enclave featuring two new elegant 3 bedroom semi detached homes and one new stylish 3 bedroom detached home with garden stores and extensive landscaping.

This is the start of a new era for Cultra Station.
