TWENTY FIRST CEN­TURY LIV­ING

Bright fam­ily home with de­signer edge … Stephanie Bell re­ports

Belfast Telegraph - Propertynews - - Home Finder -

If ever a home was de­signed for 21st cen­tury fam­ily liv­ing then this has to be it.

Open, bright and spa­cious with plenty of in­ter­est­ing de­sign fea­tures, it is a mar­vel­lous fam­ily home.

The house stands proud in a quiet cul de sac within the pop­u­lar Park­gate De­vel­op­ment from where it en­joys pleas­ant views over the sur­round­ing coun­try­side.

In­side, the split level lay­out adds a sense of in­di­vid­u­al­ity to the de­sign and the heart of this prop­erty is an im­pres­sive open plan kitchen, liv­ing, din­ing area which opens onto a beau­ti­ful land­scaped pa­tio at the back and a sun ter­race to the front.

There are four bed­rooms, two with en suite and a large games area and garage on the ground floor.

The prop­erty was built just eight years ago and in­cor­po­rates plenty of mod cons, in­clud­ing a Beam Vac­uum Sys­tem, un­der-floor heat­ing and so­lar pan­els to pro­vide hot wa­ter.

It is im­pres­sive from the out­side with its glass first floor bal­cony and dra­matic dou­ble height glaz­ing at the side.

A large solid wooden door opens into a hall­way where the main fea­ture is a solid oak open tread be­spoke stair­case.

Just off the hall­way is the first bed­room, fin­ished with a wooden floor and en suite shower room.

There is a util­ity room here as well and ac­cess to the garage and a large games room.

Un­usu­ally you climb the stairs to ac­cess the main liv­ing ar­eas.

On the land­ing a lovely glazed door opens into a mag­nif­i­cent kitchen/din­ing/liv­ing room which is as high as it is wide and long, with a dra­matic vaulted ceil­ing.

A cir­cu­lar is­land and break­fast bar neatly de­fines the kitchen area which is fit­ted out with a mix­ture of high gloss white and con­trast­ing oak units which are clev­erly fit­ted flush into the wall.

Co­rian work sur­faces add a rich fin­ish and there is a six-ring gas hob, elec­tric oven, com­bi­na­tion mi­crowave and oven with warm­ing drawer, in­te­grated fridge/ freezer and dish­washer. Dou­ble glass doors, which open onto the gar­den, cast light across the kitchen work area.

At the op­po­site end of the room is a real de­signer space for loung­ing where nat­u­ral light is plen­ti­ful thanks to glazed roof lights, dou­ble height win­dows flank­ing a huge chim­ney breast and a wall of glass open­ing onto a sun ter­race.

The bed­rooms have each been beau­ti­fully styled and fin­ished. The first comes with a su­perb en suite and is fit­ted with wall-towall robes and fin­ished with a wooden floor.
