BESPOKE BEAUTY IN CARNALEA
Beautiful bespoke Bangor abode… Stephanie Bell reports
If you like cool and contemporary styling you will love this bespoke modern home.
The house enjoys a quiet spot in Bangor’s popular Carnalea area giving it easy access to scenic coastal walks.
Its unconventional styling is evident from the outside where unusually the roof slopes down to single height level at one side while the other rises up three storeys.
Inside is just as interesting and the overall feel is of a bright, minimalist, modern home with split level rooms and large picture windows.
The current owners sum it up: “We have thoroughly enjoyed living in this wonderfully unique home. The design is clever and the site is very quiet and secluded.
“The gardens are mature yet easily maintained and with the balcony overlooking the garden, it is perfect for watching the children play or enjoying a glass of wine on a summer evening.”
The deceptively spacious accommodation is set over three floors and comprises a living room, dining room, snug, kitchen with open dining and sitting area, utility room, four bedrooms, master with en suite, a guest room with dressing room and a main family bathroom.
A beautiful split level entrance hall features a fabulous vaulted white tongue and groove panelled ceiling. Stairs lead down to the living room.
Another white tongue and groove ceiling makes a unique feature here as does a full sized corner picture window.
There is a white painted brick chimney breast housing a double sided gas fire. A glass door opens onto a timber sun deck.
From the living room an open tread staircase leads up to the second floor.
The dining room features a tongue and groove panelled ceil- ing with another large floor to ceiling corner window overlooking the sun deck and the back garden.
Steps from here lead down to a snug with built in L shaped seating and built in shelving.
The kitchen/living/dining room is also designed in an L shape and the kitchen area is fitted with modern white units with stainless steel and chrome detail topped with starburst white granite work surfaces.
There is a Bosch double oven, four ring hob, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.
This area leads to a bright dining space with skylight and spacious living area with another wonderful full sized picture window. There is also a utility room. The staircase from the lounge leads to a spacious landing with built in cupboards and an office space.
There are four bedrooms, all with built in furniture. The master bedroom features a large range of built in robes and cupboards and has a lovely corner feature window and a glazed door opening onto a patio and the garden.
A modern en suite is finished with a feature wash hand basin with glass display shelving, heated towel rail and corner shower cubicle with rain shower head.
A guest bedroom opens onto a dressing room which has the potential to be turned into an en suite.
The family bathroom is fitted out in a contemporary white with wash hand basin set in a vanity unit and panelled bath with hand shower and mixer tap, as well as a separate shower cubicle.
The house comes with a detached garage and the mature screened gardens are in lawns with flower beds and mature trees with boundary fencing and hedges.
There is a paved patio and barbecue area and an enclosed, walled courtyard with Tegula paving and railway sleepings, plus a lovely first floor sun deck.
This property impresses both inside and outside
