Belfast Telegraph - Propertynews - - Home Finder -

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.

High spec cat 5 wir­ing will ap­peal to mod­ern techies or any­one who works from home.

The open liv­ing spaces of­fer an im­pres­sive en­trance hall, liv­ing and din­ing room, kitchen, fam­ily room, util­ity, down­stairs WC, two ground floor bed­rooms with Jack and Jill en suite, three first floor bed­rooms, mas­ter with en suite and dress­ing room and a lux­u­ri­ous fam­ily bath­room.

Dou­ble wooden en­trance doors open to an en­trance porch and then into a won­der­ful hall­way with a mag­nif­i­cent be­spoke open tread cherry wood stair­case with glass balustrades ris­ing to a glass lined open land­ing area.

Nat­u­ral stone col­umn rises up to the dou­ble height ceil­ing mak­ing a fea­ture be­tween the hall­way and the kitchen.

An­gled dou­ble height win­dows with more nat­u­ral stone walls have been used to cre­ate a stun­ning open plan liv­ing/din­ing space.

One of the stone walls houses a fire­place with multi fuel stove and slate hearth and slid­ing doors open to an out­side deck. The vaulted ceil­ing gives the room an ex­tra sense of space and height and maple floor­ing runs throughout.

The Robin­son kitchen is sta­teof-the-art with high gloss cream and wal­nut units topped with gran­ite. There is a sleek break­fast bar and all the ap­pli­ances you might need with an in­te­grated Zanussi five ring hob, oven, mi­crowave, dish­washer and twin fridge/freezer.

This room is fin­ished off with a rich pol­ished porce­lain floor. There is also a well equipped util­ity room and WC found off a rear hall­way.

From the main liv­ing area a frosted glass slid­ing door opens into a cosy fam­ily room.

Two ground floor bed­rooms each have ac­cess to a Jack and Jill en suite, and are fit­ted with a range of wardrobes and fin­ished with maple floor­ing.

Make your way up the won­der­ful ar­chi­tec­turally de­signed maple stair­case to a beau­ti­ful open land­ing and more lux­ury awaits in the

mas­ter bed­room.

This mod­ern space comes with a large walk in dress­ing room and a lux­ury Roca en suite with a large shower cu­bi­cle with rain wa­ter shower, a con­tem­po­rary wash hand basin and bidet, fin­ished with a porce­lain floor­ing and a quaint port­hole win­dow.

There are two ad­di­tional bed­rooms fin­ished with maple floors and one fea­tures frosted glass slid­ing wardrobes.

The fam­ily bath­room is fit­ted out in style with a white Du­ravit suite which in­cludes a fea­ture free stand­ing bath with wall mounted taps and tiled Pharo shower, plus bidet and pedestal wash hand basin.

Out­side the ex­ten­sive grounds ex­tend to two acres and could eas­ily be sub di­vided to pro­vide for any­one want­ing to keep a horse or pony.

There is a dou­ble de­tached garage with elec­tric roller doors and a tar­mac drive­way.

A stone wall and en­trance pil­lars at the front open to the drive­way and there area gar­dens to the front and side in laws with a huge back gar­den with fea­ture raised deck and paved pa­tio ar­eas.

Great de­sign is the hall­mark of this strik­ing home
