SET in its own pri­vate es­tate of seven acres Ardnabrac is a grand mod­ern home show­cas­ing fine crafts­man­ship and su­pe­rior de­sign.

At just un­der £2 mil­lion you would ex­pect a lot of lux­ury and this house cer­tainly de­liv­ers it.

From the fab­u­lous sculp­tures in the rolling land­scaped grounds to the many be­spoke in­te­rior fea­tures in­clud­ing hand carved fire­places and stair­case this is a home where no ex­pense has been spared to of­fer a fine qual­ity of liv­ing.

As well as the huge main house built in 2005 there is a beau­ti­ful self con­tained an­nex and a range of stone out­build­ings.

Ap­proached through twin en­trance pil­lars and elec­tric gates which open onto a wind­ing drive­way, Ardnabrac is a truly im­pres­sive de­tached country res­i­dence.

The seven acres of man­i­cured gar­dens of­fer com­plete pri­vacy and space to ex­plore, re­lax and play with rolling lawns, a fea­ture walled gar­den and nu­mer­ous sun ter­races.

The set­ting is very spe­cial and the lo­ca­tion be­tween Comber and Dun­don­ald also puts you within easy com­mut­ing dis­tance of Belfast City Cen­tre.

A lovely cov­ered ve­randa in York stone with gran­ite cor­bel edg­ing, leads to a porch which is fin­ished with hand cut Ital­ian Traver­tine tiled floor­ing and dou­ble solid oak doors lead­ing into the en­trance hall.

You are wel­comed into this beau­ti­ful home with an im­pres­sive sand­stone fire­place in a stun­ning hall­way which is fin­ished with wood pan­elling, a vaulted and beamed ceil­ing and gallery land­ing.

An arch­way leads to a rear hall­way where a glazed door opens to the walled gar­den.

The gen­er­ous ac­com­mo­da­tion in­cludes a study, din­ing room, draw­ing room, but­ler’s pantry, open plan kitchen/liv­ing/din­ing room, larder cup­board, boot room, two store rooms, a util­ity, sun room, two plant rooms, five bed­rooms all with their own en suites and the master with a dressing room.
