A ru­ral haven with bags of char­ac­ter… Stephanie Bell re­ports

Belfast Telegraph - Propertynews - - Front Page -

THIS won­der­ful coun­try house has evolved dur­ing its life­time from a gate lodge serv­ing a large farm es­tate to an ex­ten­sive fam­ily home with lots of charm­ing and quirky fea­tures.

In­side of­fers fam­ily liv­ing which is both cosy and char­ac­ter­ful with lux­ury fix­tures and fit­tings.

There is a din­ing room, lounge, open plan kitchen with din­ing and fam­ily area, util­ity room, four dou­ble bed­rooms, a very spe­cial bath­room and sep­a­rate shower room.

Out­side is just as charm­ing with quaint gar­dens which have been beau­ti­fully land­scaped to blend per­fectly into the idyl­lic coun­try sur­round­ings.

You step in­side to a spec­tac­u­lar din­ing hall which is full of rus­tic char­ac­ter. There is a fab­u­lous be­spoke stone fire­place, ceil­ing beams and a pine floor. A spin­dle stair­case leads up to the first floor.

The draw­ing room feels bright and airy tanks to two large win­dows a big bay. The fo­cal point is an­other su­perb fire­place which is flanked on ei­ther side with hand crafted book­cases.

An­other bright room, the open plan kitchen/liv­ing/diner also has that charm­ing coun­try feel with a quarry tiled floor, fire­place and ceil­ing beams. There is a five ring hob, dou­ble oven and plumb­ing for a dish­washer.

Off a rear hall­way is a well equipped util­ity room.

Up­stairs and the cot­tage feel con­tin­ues on the land­ing where there more rus­tic beams greet you.

The bed­rooms are all spa­cious and the mas­ter has a lovely fea­ture win­dow with coun­try views.

Great thought and de­sign has gone into the beautiful bath­room. The pan­elled bath sits in a hand crafted moulded case­ment and there is a large van­ity unit with mar­ble top and il­lu­mi­nated mir­ror, plus cor­ner shower cu­bi­cle, bidet and low flush WC.

There is also a sec­ond shower room with pedestal wash hand basin and low flush WC.

Out­side is a large peb­bled fore­court wraps round the house and there is a de­tached garage and wood shed.

De­light­ful land­scaped gar­dens are ma­turely planted with a plethora of shrubs, flow­ers and trees with a large lawn area and a spa­cious paved pa­tio.
