Craigavad has long been as­so­ci­ated with af­flu­ent liv­ing in North­ern Ire­land and this beautiful prop­erty com­plete with swim­ming pool is typ­i­cal of the lev­els of lux­ury to be found in this leafy sub­urb.

The house has been ex­ten­sively ex­tended over the past 20 years to in­clude a new mas­ter suite and ad­di­tional draw­ing room with a 10 ft ceil­ing which opens to a din­ing room which in turn leads to a fam­ily room and study.

The airy, spa­cious open plan style gives the home a grace­ful feel and as you would ex­pect of a house of this cal­i­bre the fit­tings through­out in the bath­rooms and kitchen are all top notch.

Out­side as well as the lux­ury ad­di­tion of a pool house with its own liv­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion and heated out­door pool, you can also en­joy ¬ of an acre of pri­vate, ma­ture, man­i­cured gar­dens ac­cessed via a tree lined drive.

The lo­ca­tion is of course un­ri­valled and close by is a coastal path and the beach as well as be­ing just min­utes from The Royal Belfast Golf Club.

The house it­self is im­pres­sive and sits proud in front of large im­mac­u­late lawns.

Step­ping into the hall­way gives you an idea of the at­ten­tion to de­tail with cor­niced ceil­ing, at­trac­tive ra­di­a­tor cov­ers, wall light­ing and a stair­case with hand painted spin­dles lead­ing to the first floor.

The lit­tle touches con­tinue even in the cloak­room which is fit­ted with Villeroy and Boch san­i­tary ware with fea­ture black and gold mixer taps on the wash hand basin and un­usu­ally it also fea­tures a uri­nal with flush mech­a­nism as well as a low flush WC.

The main liv­ing area in this house is breath­tak­ing in terms of its open­ness, fin­ishes and bright­ness.

The high ceil­ing and large pic­ture win­dows add to the sense of space and there is an Adams style

fire­place, cor­nice ceil­ing, rose, rese de­tail­ing and lux­u­ri­ous un­der­floor heat­ing.

Steps lead up to an el­e­gant din­ing room with an­other large pic­ture win­dow look­ing out over the gar­den.

From here, dou­ble doors open to a lovely fam­ily room where there is a wooden fire­place and an­other large pic­ture win­dow.

The study with fea­ture port hole win­dow and an­other large pic­ture win­dow is a pleas­ant place to work al­low­ing you to en­joy the tran­quil views of the gar­den.

The kitchen is prac­ti­cal in its de­sign with lots of cup­boards and de­signer ap­pli­ances which in­clude a De Di­et­rich four ring ce­ramic in­duc­tion hob, Gagge­nau in­te­grated bar­beque grill, deep fat fryer and eye level oven with con­cealed mi­crowave. There is also an in­te­grated fridge and a Milie dish­washer.

A strik­ing fea­ture is a pol­ished brass slated ceil­ing and for ca­sual fam­ily eat­ing there is a built in din­ing area with views over the pool.

The up­stairs is just as spa­cious and high spec. The new mas­ter suite is a deca­dent space with a fan­tas­tic walk in dress­ing room all fit­ted with lots of hang­ing space, shoe racks, cab­i­nets, shelves and an in­te­grated mir­ror.

The en suite is like a five star spa room with a large dou­ble cen­tral bath and a huge shower en­clo­sure, low flush WC and uri­nal, three heated towel rails and stun­ning mod­ern tiling.

There are three more dou­ble bed­rooms and the guest room also comes with an en suite.

The main bath­room is an­other con­tem­po­rary spa-like space with a cen­tral Jacuzzi bath with gold taps and in­te­grated head cush­ion – the height of lux­ury!

There is a Villeroy and Boch bidet and low flush WC, built in cab­i­nets and gran­ite work­tops, plus gran­ite tiled floor. A glass shower en­clo­sure is also fin­ished with gran­ite tiled walls and fea­tures an over drencher, tele­phone shower and power jets.

Out­side will also wow you. There is an in­te­grated garage and ex­ten­sive, beau­ti­fully main­tained gar­dens.

The 40 ft pool which is seven feet deep at one end is the per­fect party space with a shel­tered bar­beque area and ter­races for sun bathing and din­ing, all sur­rounded by ma­ture trees and shrubs.

A sum­mer house is an­other huge bonus and comes with a liv­ing area, fully fit­ted kitchen, shower room and bed­room and is the per­fect guest suite, teenage an­nex or granny flat.
