TWENTY FIRST CENTURY DESIGN IN BALLYHOLME
Designer-led home in desirable location ... Stephanie Bell reports
Constructed by the award winning team of Geddis Development and 22/7 Architects this striking town house is part of a development which is much admired for its innovative contemporary design.
The exceptional specification throughout is perfectly enhanced by professional interior design by Lee Austin Interiors, giving this home an extra dose of wow factor.
A fusion of cutting edge design and extensive use of natural materials, including floor to ceiling glass and solid oak flooring, combine to create a magnificent modern living environment.
This lifestyle property boasts under-floor heating to the ground floor including kitchen, dining area and drawing room.
Every detail is architecturally designed, including a bespoke fitted hand-painted kitchen, double height ceiling in the drawing room and the extensive glazing in all of the main rooms.
Even the south facing garden has been specially designed with outdoor living in mind and you can entertain your friends or enjoy al fresco family dining with a barbecue area, decking and paved patios all softened with colourful flowerbeds.
The property offers a versatile layout, with either four bedrooms or three and a second level “master floor” which features a dramatic bedroom with vaulted ceiling as well as an en suite shower room and dressing room.
The house also enjoys an enviable location close to Bangor’s Ring Road and a range of leading schools, as well as being within walking distance of Ballyholme village and coastal walks.
The high spec is apparent from the moment you step into the hallway, which is finished with polished porcelain tiled flooring complete with recessed brush-off mat and recessed stainless steel LED spotlighting.
A modern glazed door opens into a designer drawing room. In here the combination of double height ceiling, oak solid wooden flooring and floor to ceiling glass on both sides, plus sliding patio doors all create a designer-led and highly contemporary living space.
Bespoke built-in glazed units and cabinets and a bespoke built-in high level library with ladder add further interest, along with contemporary wall mounted radiators and a raised hole in wall fireplace with slate hearth and chrome contemporary gas fire. As you would expect the room is wired for a wall mounted plasma/led television.
A ground floor cloakroom is stylishly fitted out with a Duravit white suite including a circular wash hand basin set in granite with a granite splash back and storage cabinets below.
The kitchen/dining room is sleek and stylish with hand painted con- trasting units in grey and white with granite work surfaces and stainless steel fittings.
There is an integrated Baumatic dishwasher, gas hob and electric oven and a built in breakfast bar.
Polished porcelain tiled flooring runs through to the bright dining area where bespoke fitted matching shelves tie the space in with the kitchen and a hardwood double glazed door leads to the garden. The polished porcelain tiled floor is again protected with a recessed brush-off mat.
As well as a magnificent master suite there are three bedrooms.
The master sleeping area features a vaulted ceiling with two large Velux windows.
A luxurious en suite shower room has a floating wash hand basin with chrome mixer taps, low flush WC, walk-in glazed shower enclosure with built-in chrome thermostatically controlled shower unit fully tiled in porcelain tiling.
There is a polished porcelain tiled floor and a marble counter top to display your cosmetics on placed in front of a recessed mirror with stainless steel LED spotlighting.
The fourth bedroom is currently serving as a dressing room to the master suite, banked on both sides with bespoke fitted furniture including an extensive range of built-in robes, cabinets and drawer units.
The main family bathroom features a top quality Duravit suite with a low flush WC, deep fill panelled bath with chrome wall mounted mixer taps and built-in thermostatically controlled
shower unit with massage facility and a glass shower screen.
There is also an inset circular wash hand basin on a marble plinth with marble splash back and mirrored recess and the room is fully tiled in porcelain tiling.
Outside a tarmac driveway with ample parking leads to an additional brick driveway with parking to the front and side, smartly bordered with box hedging and a number of trees and flowerbeds.
The enclosed rear garden is laid in paving with timber decking and cracked slate flowerbeds with mature planting and shrubs.
There are both hot and cold water taps, outdoor lighting and a power point, with additional lighting to the side and front of the house.
This property oozes real designer style both inside and out
