Belfast Telegraph - Propertynews - - Front Page -

THIS mod­ern beauty ex­udes de­signer style in­side and out.

It is an ex­cep­tion­ally well fin­ished large de­tached home sit­ting in 1.6 acres of grounds and if you are an eques­trian en­thu­si­ast or fancy tak­ing up a new hobby then a huge bonus will be the sub­stan­tial sand mé­nage, pad­dock and sta­bles at the back.

En­ter into an ex­ten­sively glazed hall­way where a huge fea­ture win­dow rises up to the sec­ond floor. A float­ing style solid wal­nut stair­case gives an im­me­di­ate sense of the out­stand­ing stan­dard of fin­ish found through­out.

There is an im­pres­sive cloak­room with glass block inset which is again de­signed to al­low nat­u­ral light to flow in.

The lounge stretches to 22 feet and mod­ern de­signer fea­tures in­clude a Gazco re­mote con­trol hor­i­zon­tal gas fire and four dou­ble bi-fold doors lead­ing to the fam­ily room. This em­pha­sis on light con­tin­ues in the fam­ily/din­ing area where an­other glass block wall al­lows the light from the hall­way to fil­ter through.

The sun lounge is a real state­ment room with a full height vaulted ceil­ing with a num­ber of in­te­grated roof win­dows, four bi-fold doors lead­ing to an out­side pa­tio and a fea­ture curved Woolf wood burn­ing stove.

Like the rest of the house the kitchen/diner is ul­tra mod­ern and top of the range with Ital­ian de­sign Scavolini units with stun­ning crys­tal­lite work­tops and a su­per-sleek breakfast bar with stain­less steel base and in­te­grated sit-around Neff in­duc­tion hob and cook­ing area with a stain­less steel and glass Faber ex­trac­tor unit com­ing down from the ceil­ing.

This kitchen has every­thing at hand to make cook­ing a de­light in­clud­ing an in­te­grated refuse drawer, eye level grill oven and com­bi­na­tion mi­crowave oven, fan-ex­tract­ing larder units, in­te­grated fridge freezer, dish­washer

and Miele cof­fee maker plus an oven with glass pan­elled doors and con­cealed stor­age.

Up­stairs and the land­ing is flooded with nat­u­ral light from the dou­ble height win­dow and leads to the mag­nif­i­cent sleep­ing fa­cil­i­ties with four good sized bed­rooms all with tele­phone and TV points.

The first bed­room comes with a walk in wardrobe and a deca­dent en suite.

Bed­room two also has a walk in wardrobe and lux­ury en suite with a large fully tiled shower cu­bi­cle, sus­pended wash hand basin and tiled floor and splash back.

The main bath­room is a won­der­ful sanc­tu­ary with a de­signer Kohler suite and fea­ture dou­ble ended whirlpool bath.

The apart­ment an­nex has its own en­trance hall and an open plan kitchen/lounge/din­ing room with a dou­ble glazed pa­tio door lead­ing out­side. There is also an en suite bed­room.

Out­side the grounds have a lot to of­fer. The in­te­gral garage with mo­torised roller shut­ter door has a handy store room with ra­di­a­tor, power points and a stair­case lead­ing to the at­tic.

There is a car port and two sta­bles, plus a tack room and mé­nage. The pad­dock ex­tends to half an acre with tim­ber ranch fence around all the bound­aries and con­trolled ac­cess to the sta­bles. Re­mote con­trol gates open onto a pri­vate court­yard. There is also an ex­ten­sive pa­tio area fea­tur­ing a cir­cu­lar paved seat­ing sec­tion with out­door elec­tri­cal points and ver­ti­cal light­ing.

This strik­ing con­tem­po­rary home ex­em­pli­fies pared-back so­phis­ti­ca­tion with an abun­dance of win­dows adding an airy feel in­side
