SIT­TING right on the shore with pri­vate ac­cess to a sandy beach this mag­nif­i­cent mil­lion­aire’s home in Cultra en­joys an un­ri­valled lo­ca­tion.

The area is re­garded as one of North­ern Ire­land’s most sought af­ter and this spa­cious be­spoke prop­erty sits on what must be one of the finest plots it has to of­fer.

Ex­ten­sive glaz­ing brings the beau­ti­ful sea views in­side while out­side, gen­er­ous ma­ture land­scaped gar­dens pro­vide a beau­ti­ful place to re­lax and en­joy the stun­ning vista.

The house it­self has been in­di­vid­u­ally de­signed with the ar­chi­tect en­sur­ing the po­si­tion of the prop­erty is max­imised through ex­ten­sive glaz­ing and gen­er­ous liv­ing spa­ces.

Be­spoke fea­tures abound and there is size­able, adapt­able ac­com­mo­da­tion with the huge ground floor alone of­fer­ing four re­cep­tion rooms, a kitchen, gar­den room, guest bed­room suite with shower room, util­ity room, WC, and a cloak­room.

The first floor is just as roomy with an open plan study/read­ing area; lux­ury mas­ter bed­room with en suite bath­room and dress­ing room; a fam­ily shower room and two fur­ther bed­rooms, one of which is a du­plex with dress­ing area.

The lo­ca­tion right on the shore­line pro­vides easy ac­cess to coastal

walks and you are just min­utes away from Royal North of Ire­land Yacht Club and Royal Belfast Golf Club.

An at­trac­tive pil­lar en­trance, with se­cure au­to­mated en­trance gates open to a drive­way which sweeps past a large cir­cu­lar lawn to the en­trance of the prop­erty.

Dou­ble pan­elled doors open onto one of two hall­ways with mar­ble tiled floor and the first of many fea­ture glazed pan­elled walls fram­ing the in­cred­i­ble views to Belfast Lough.

A glazed pan­elled door with side pan­els and fan light open into the main re­cep­tion hall which is fin­ished with a solid wooden floor.

The spec­tac­u­lar split level draw­ing room is sur­rounded by large win­dows and has a mag­nif­i­cent vaulted ceil­ing which en­hances the feel­ing of space.

Ev­ery win­dow looks out over the sea and this beau­ti­ful room fea­tures a hole in the wall fire­place with open fire and a nat­u­ral slate floor. Two sets of French doors open to pa­tios which look out over the shore.

There is also a fab­u­lous din­ing room with full length win­dows and slid­ing doors open­ing to the gar­den.

The kitchen is an­other gen­er­ous space open­ing into a liv­ing and din­ing area with un­der floor heat­ing.

The white painted units are topped with pol­ished gran­ite and there is a Neff 4 ring gas hob and un­der oven, a Belling in­te­grated dish­washer, Sam­sung Amer­i­can fridge freezer and a two ring gas Aga.

A cen­tral is­land unit with break­fast bar houses a Vik­ing wine cooler.

A large pic­ture win­dow cre­ates the per­fect liv­ing space and there is a hole in the wall gas fire.

The views con­tinue in the bright gar­den room with its large pic­ture win­dow, vaulted ceil­ing and dou­ble French doors with fan­light lead­ing to a deck area.

The guest bed­room on the ground floor also en­joys sea views and comes with a lux­ury en suite shower room.

Up­stairs again is dom­i­nated by the won­der­ful Lough views and the bed­rooms are all lux­u­ri­ous with top notch de­signer bath­rooms.

The mas­ter suite is fit­ted a good range of built in wardrobes with mir­rored slid­ing doors.

The en suite bath­room fea­tures an oval bath, a large walk-in fully tiled shower area, van­ity unit with fea­ture cir­cu­lar wash hand basin and large il­lu­mi­nated mir­ror. There is also a bidet and win­dow shutters and views along the County Down coast­line.

The ad­join­ing dress­ing room is fit­ted with built-in wardrobes and van­ity area.

Bed­room two also has built in wardrobes and Lough views and the third bed­room has a stair­way to an up­per level where there is a shower room.

In bed­room five, full length win­dows and slid­ing doors open to a Juliet bal­cony over­look­ing the front gar­den.
