Belfast Telegraph - Homefinder - - Front Page - Stephanie Bell re­ports

A TREA­SURE trove of fine fea­tures and de­signer touches have turned this fam­ily home in Down­patrick into a lovely coun­try dwelling.

The house is beau­ti­fully pre­sented and the quaint cot­tage style ex­te­rior doesn’t pre­pare you for the masses of liv­ing space to be found in­side.

There are a to­tal of five bed­rooms, two with en suites, two re­cep­tion rooms, a huge open plan kitchen/din­ing/liv­ing room, a fam­ily bath­room, util­ity room and WC.

As you pass through the elec­tric gates you get an im­me­di­ate sense of pres­tige as the drive­way cuts through gen­er­ous well planted grounds to the large peb­bled fore­court at the front of the house.

Ma­ture shrub­bery and won­der­ful land­scaped gar­dens with pa­tio ar­eas, deck­ing and ponds sur­round the house.

When you step in­side the hall­way with its solid wooden doors, fea­ture cor­ner win­dow and gen­er­ous size gives makes a great first im­pres­sion. This large space over­looked by a min­strel gallery land­ing com­fort­ably fits a study area and a wel­come sur­prise is a huge stor­age cup­board which also houses a Beam vac­uum sys­tem.

An el­e­gant lounge has a mod­ern feel with dual win­dows and fea­ture fire­place with hard wood sur­round and cast iron in­set.

Also on the ground floor are three bed­rooms, one with gen­er­ous built in stor­age and an­other with its own dress­ing room and en suite, plus dou­ble doors open­ing onto the gar­den.

The main bath­room on this floor is de­light­fully de­signed with a pe­riod style and fea­tures a free stand­ing ball and claw foot bath and half tim­ber tongue and groove pan­elled walls, plus cor­ner shower unit with drencher shower and a cast iron ra­di­a­tor.

The open plan kitchen/liv­ing/ din­ing room is a large, bright space with vaulted ceil­ing and has a charm­ing rus­tic feel.

Wooden units with gran­ite work tops are fit­ted with a sunken sink unit and in­te­grated Range­mas­ter oven, in­te­grated fridge, freezer and dish­washer. A fire­place in nat­u­ral brick with wooden man­tel and multi-fuel stove adds a cosy touch to the liv­ing area. Also on the ex­ten­sive ground floor is a snug, a util­ity room and WC.

Up­stairs and the long gallery land­ing leads to two bed­rooms, one with a lovely en suite com­plete with jacuzzi bath.

Out­side the prop­erty is just as pleas­ing with sub­stan­tial gar­dens in lawns with lots of plants and ponds plus a pa­tio area, deck and a gar­den store house. There is also a dou­ble garage.
