A WIDER VIEW

Belfast Telegraph - Propertynews - - News -

NORTH­ERN Ire­land has no short­age of beau­ti­ful scenery and we cer­tainly know how to make the most of the nat­u­ral beauty when it comes to de­sign­ing houses.

Our two main fea­ture homes this week both en­joy very dif­fer­ent but equally beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tions.

The house on the right sits right on the shore­line in one of Co Down’s most pres­ti­gious res­i­den­tial ar­eas at Cultra.

The pri­vate, el­e­vated site of­fers spec­tac­u­lar views over the sea which can be en­joyed from most of the main rooms in this mag­nif­i­cent house as well as the large gar­dens which roll down to the coast­line.

Built in 2009, it has a high end in­te­rior with a cav­ernous 6,500sq ft of beau­ti­fully fin­ished ac­com­mo­da­tion over two floors.

You even have your own lift to whisk you up to the first floor and there is a spec­tac­u­lar 52ft long draw­ing and din­ing room.

On pages 4 and 5 we have an­other strik­ing be­spoke home which is nes­tled in beau­ti­ful coun­try­side be­side Cas­tle Ward es­tate and of­fer­ing views to­wards Kil­lyleagh and Strang­ford Lough.

Built in 2001, the de­sign of the prop­erty was in­flu­enced by the Arts and Crafts move­ment which can be found in the many fine de­tails in­side.
