Ballyquin Road, Limavady House
A simple linear vernacular house is sited to integrate with existing farm buildings. The materials are boardmark and smooth concrete walls, zinc clad roof and hardwood timber window frames. The elevated location of the site is fortunate to have long distance views in particular to Lough Foyle and the shore line of County Donegal beyond. Openings on the walls are thoughtfully located and proportioned with some large to present a panoramic of the landscape whilst others frame the landscape. These openings also reflect the typology and style of the surround farm buildings.
The dwelling accommodates an open plan Living/Dining/Kitchen, Utility area, 3 no. bedrooms, bedroom/playroom and 2 bathrooms.
