Belfast Telegraph - Homefinder - - News -

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
