Enniskillen, N. Ireland
Enniskillen Airfield is set in one of the most picturesque locations in the British Isles. It is located just 3 nautical miles north of the city of Enniskillen, on the shores of Lough Erne in Northern Ireland, which is also known as the ‘Lake District of Northern Ireland’.
The airfield was first built in 1941 and used during World War II as RAF St. Angelo, from where Spitfires and Hurricanes flew. Since 1996 it has been in private ownership as a civilian airfield with scheduled flights operating from there until 2006. It is one of only 5 licensed airfields in Northern Ireland, and is an ideal base to tour both Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic, making it ideal for hangar homes used as either primary residences or as holiday homes.
With the support of both the airfield owner and the land owner of the field adjacent to the disused part of the eastern taxiway, a planning application is being submitted for 10 hangar homes plus one to be used as a clubhouse for residents and visiting pilots, with a 10m x 5m swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room in the ‘hangar’, a gym in the ‘garage’, changing rooms and showers in the entrance hall and a restaurant and bar upstairs overlooking the airfield and the lakes. Should planning permission be granted, then the hangar homes should be available by summer 2021, after which the clubhouse will be built, so if anyone is interested in owning one, please use the Contact Form to register your interest.
