A FAMILY HOME CLOSE TO THE SEA­SIDE

A su­perb ex­tended family home in a top lo­ca­tion ... Stephanie Bell re­ports

Belfast Telegraph - Propertynews - - Front Page -

THIS de­cep­tively spa­cious family home en­joys a pri­vate set­ting back from the main road in a great lo­ca­tion which puts it close to the beach in the pop­u­lar sea­side town of Ban­gor.

The house has been ex­tended to around 3,000 sq ft adding two bed­rooms in­clud­ing an en suite master bed­room, an im­pres­sive new draw­ing room and an open study area.

There is a lovely feel­ing of space and qual­ity as you tour the well pro­por­tioned, bright rooms.

There are five bed­rooms in to­tal, a large kitchen with solid maple units open­ing to a ca­sual din­ing area, beau­ti­ful open lounge with floor to ceil­ing win­dows on two sides, a family room, din­ing room, util­ity room, study, bath­room and shower room.

The lo­ca­tion, which is just three min­utes walk to Ban­gor West train sta­tion, is another ma­jor part of the ap­peal and one which en­hanced the life­style of the cur­rent own­ers who say: “Our lo­ca­tion, so close to the shore, is one of the many things we have en­joyed dur­ing our time here. We never tire of see­ing the stun­ning sea view as you turn into Bryans­glen Av­enue.

“Strick­land’s Glen is di­rectly ac­cessed from our gar­den and our chil­dren have spent many hours ex­plor­ing and play­ing in the glen — it’s a beau­ti­ful back­drop to our gar­den at any time of the year.

“We have also en­joyed the con­ve­nience of liv­ing here, from be­ing able to walk the chil­dren to school (or their now easy ac­cess to school buses), hop­ping on a train to Belfast, walk­ing along the coast into Ban­gor town or Craw­fords­burn Coun­try Park, to hav­ing a petrol sta­tion, shops and restau­rant so close to hand.

“The house has been very adapt­able to our de­vel­op­ing needs as a family and we have loved the light and airy feel­ing of space (both inside and out), the easy park­ing, pri­vacy and beau­ti­ful set­ting.”

At the front of the house there is a huge park­ing space and fea­ture steps lead up to an open cov­ered en­trance porch.

The en­trance hall is fin­ished with a solid wal­nut floor and leads to a cosy family room with large pic­ture win­dow and fea­ture cor­ner fire­place.

The for­mal din­ing room is also a bright and airy space with a large bay win­dow.

The kitchen is fit­ted with solid maple units and has good din­ing space plus an in­te­grated fridge freezer and dish­washer.

A glazed door leads to a util­ity room and there is an in­ner hall­way with hot press and a stair­case with solid oak handrails lead­ing to the first floor.

The new ex­ten­sion blends per- fectly with the orig­i­nal house and a lovely touch is an open plan study area sit­ting in front of a floor to ceil­ing pic­ture win­dow.

The gor­geous new draw­ing room is fin­ished with a solid wal­nut floor and French doors open onto a deck area with ad­di­tional floor to ceil­ing win­dows over­look­ing the gar­den and the glen beyond.

The family bath­room is con­tem­po­rary in styling with a white pan­elled bath with Hans­grohe mixer tap, pedestal wash hand basin also with Hans­grohe mixer tap, low flush WC, fully tiled shower cu­bi­cle with Hans­grohe ther­mo­stat­i­cally con­trolled shower unit and the walls are fully tiled.

There is also a mod­ern shower room with fully tiled shower cu­bi­cle.

On the first floor another large pic­ture win­dow floods the land­ing with nat­u­ral light.

The new master bed­room suite has a vaulted ceil­ing and floor to ceil­ing tilt and turn win­dows.

An en suite dress­ing room has an ex­ten­sive range of high and low level open hang­ing, draw­ers and open shelv­ing, and the en suite shower room meets all your needs with a fully tiled Matki shower cu­bi­cle with mo­saic de­tail­ing, chrome heated towel rail, beau­ti­ful wall mounted Du­ravit sink set on an Amer­i­can wal­nut shelf with chrome towel hold­ers and mixer tap set against a glass tiled splash back.

There is also a stylish van­ity unit with light and shaver socket.

Out­side the prop­erty will im­press just as much.

There is an in­te­gral dou­ble garage and ex­ten­sive en­closed rear gar­dens laid in lawns with hedg­ing and pan­elled fenc­ing. A large flagged pa­tio and raised deck area is ideal for sum­mer en­ter­tain­ing.
