A MODERN MARVEL IN COLERAINE
Experience sumptuous living not far from the north coast ... Stephanie Bell reports
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.
