A home with bags of style… Stephanie Bell re­ports

Belfast Telegraph - Propertynews - - Home Finder -

A SUR­PRIS­ING amount of space and quirky de­signer style greets you in­side this strik­ing Belfast bun­ga­low.

It is a re­ally in­ter­est­ing home which is beau­ti­fully pre­sented with heaps of room for a grow­ing fam­ily.

It sits on Belfast’s Denor­rton Park which is well renowned for qual­ity ar­chi­tec­ture and its leafy sur­round­ings as well as be­ing close to the vi­brant vil­lages of Bel­mont and Bal­ly­hack­amore.

The heart of the house is the su­perb open plan kitchen with fea­ture vaulted ceil­ing which opens into a sun room where there is a beautiful out­look to the back gar­den and the Antrim Hills.

There are two ad­di­tional re­cep­tion rooms, four bed­rooms and a lux­u­ri­ous re­cently in­stalled bath­room.

A ve­randa cov­ered en­trance porch opens into the re­cep­tion hall where the fea­tures which give this house such per­son­al­ity be­gin with a lovely re­claimed her­ring­bone wooden floor and strik­ing pe­riod fea­ture fire­place. There is a cor­niced ceil­ing and a rose and pic­ture rail adding even more char­ac­ter.

The draw­ing room is a great size and has dual as­pect win­dows and a bay and an­other re­ally lovely fire­place with cast iron in­set.

Glazed dou­ble doors open to the stun­ning kitchen. This room has been de­signed with great thought and flair in a rus­tic style with solid oak units and work sur­faces with a big Aga cooker as a fo­cal point set in a tiled re­cess with brick over­head and man­tel shelf. There is a built in break­fast bar in solid oak and a Belfast jaw box sink with rus­tic mixer taps.

Ex­posed strip wood floor­ing and a glo­ri­ous vaulted ceil­ing com­plete the look.

Dou­ble oak glazed doors open to a pa­tio gar­den and an arch­way leads into a fab­u­lous win­dow lined liv­ing room/sun room.

This room also has a vaulted ceil­ing and dual as­pect win­dows with great views over Belfast. An ex­posed brick wall and strip wood floor­ing con­tinue the rus­tic them al­though the over­all feel­ing is con­tem­po­rary.

There is also a cosy snug with a cast iron wood burn­ing stove set in a fea­ture floor to ceil­ing brick re­cess.

The bed­rooms also have lots of charm and the first one is fin­ished with a solid oak floor and has a built in wardrobe while the sec­ond has a stripped and treated wood floor and a bay win­dow.

The re­main­ing two bed­rooms have build in solid oak wardrobes and one has a lovely fea­ture ex­posed brick wall.

There is a wet room on the first floor and a stylish mod­ern bath­room on the ground floor.

Out­side at the back is a large fam­ily gar­den laid in lawns with a raised pa­tio and ma­ture trees, shrubs, a straw­berry patch and gar­den shed, plus won­der­ful views across Belfast to the Antrim Hills at the back. There is plenty of off street park­ing at the front with a gar­den laid in loose stone and lawn.

An­other bonus with the prop­erty is two base­ment stor­age rooms.

A vaulted ceil­ing is one of the many quirky de­signer touches fea­tured in this Belfast home
