Hunter House Apartments, Carrickfergus

  • Front Elevation of Refurbished Building in Carrickfergus

Project Description

A unique Grade B2 listed building which has been extensively refurbished to provide for modern duplex apartments and town centre living in Carrickfergus.

Ownership of the building can be traced back to the 17th century, when it was owned by the Dobbin family. Then, for nearly 200 years, it was owned by the Kirk Family and their descendants until 1949.

Unique ceiling cornices and a section of genuine Victorian wallpaper have been preserved, whilst, sliding sash windows have been fitted to bring back the original character and elegance of the facade to high street.

The historic oak staircase, which has witnessed over 3 centuries of footsteps and considered to be unique in urban Ireland, has been preserved.

The interior includes the warmth of exposed oak beams, original stonework and naturally breathing lime plaster, all complemented with a carefully chosen colour palette.

Interior Design by McMillan Interiors.
