BUILT to repli­cate the el­e­gance of a Vic­to­rian ter­race this el­e­gant row of houses on Ban­gor’s Prince­ton Park re­ally stands out for the qual­ity of their de­sign.

The beau­ti­ful pe­riod ex­te­rior fea­tures an im­pres­sive third floor bal­cony with be­spoke bowed black iron rail­ings and French win­dows to max­imise the el­e­vated po­si­tion which of­fers views over Ban­gor Ma­rina and the Ir­ish Sea.

Num­ber 4 is pre­sented like a show house where beau­ti­ful con­tem­po­rary fin­ishes blend with pe­riod style in­ter­nal fea­tures such as high cornice ceil­ings and bay win­dows.

The gen­er­ously pro­por­tioned ac­com­mo­da­tion in­cludes a spa­cious draw­ing room with bay win­dow and gas coal fire and a large kitchen with din­ing and liv­ing space open­ing to rear pa­tio gar­dens.

There is a flex­i­ble three or four bed­room lay­out with first floor lounge and el­e­vated sea views, plus a ground floor WC, sep­a­rate util­ity room, shower room and fam­ily bath­room.

The lo­ca­tion is an­other ma­jor part of the ap­peal as it sits within walk­ing dis­tance of Ban­gor town cen­tre, the main rail­way halt and bus net­works as well as the Ma­rina and lo­cal coastal walks.

The draw­ing room is a bright space with a lovely pol­ished gran­ite fire­place with oak sur­round and gas coal fire.

The kitchen is ul­tra stylish with con­tem­po­rary high gloss black units and a full range of built in ap­pli­ances. A large din­ing area sits in front of French doors which open onto the back gar­den.

The first floor fea­tures a bed­room, a mod­ern shower room and a lounge at the front which could also serve as a fourth bed­room. On the third floor the won­der­ful mas­ter bed­room opens onto the front bal­cony of­fer­ing in­cred­i­ble views across the ma­rina and opens sea.

The fam­ily bath­room is fully tiled and has a bath with a shower over it.

While the front gar­dens are ma­ture and com­mu­nal, there has been a huge ef­fort made to cre­ate a lovely pri­vate pa­tio gar­den at the back with at­trac­tive be­spoke built in seat­ing, a deck and flagged ar­eas.

There is also park­ing for two cars.

The beau­ti­ful fa­cade at the front of the house is an ex­am­ple of fine Vic­to­rian ar­chi­tec­ture
