A high spec designer home with rural tranquillity… Stephanie Bell reports AN ARCHITECTURAL HOME CLOSE TO THE SEA
THIS striking modern home will wow you with its spectacular architecturally designed interior.
It also enjoys an idyllic country setting surrounded by extensive gardens allowing for complete tranquillity yet convenient to a number of towns including Ballynahinch, Hillsborough and Lisburn city.
However the unique selling point has to be its individuality and an exceptional specification which creates impact everywhere you go.
Windows are a big part of the look and have been used to the maximum with double height glazed walls, extensive roof glazing creating rooms flooded with natural light and bringing in the spectacular outdoor views.
They are also self cleaning too so no need to balk at having to keep all that wonderful glass pristine.
Natural stone is another major feature of the design and has been beautifully used to add architectural interest in what is an overall great design.
