THE War­ren Road in Donaghadee has al­ways been one of North­ern Ire­land’s most sought after ad­dresses as it runs along a beau­ti­ful stretch of the north down coast.

Mak­ing the most of this dra­matic set­ting is this strik­ing home which sits right on the sea front with views views over Donaghadee Sound and the Copeland Is­lands.

A hand­some dou­ble bay fronted pe­riod style de­tached prop­erty, in­side has been lav­ished with attention and it of­fers gen­er­ous, bright, flex­i­ble ac­com­mo­da­tion.

There are four re­cep­tion rooms, and four dou­ble bed­rooms, as well as an office and util­ity room plus a bath­room, shower room and en suite.

The house is sur­rounded by well main­tained gar­dens with a ter­race from which you can lap up the won­der­ful views. There is also a large de­tached garage with elec­tric door.

A stain glass hard­wood front door opens into a bright hall­way with lovely pe­riod style ceramic floor, cor­nic­ing and at­trac­tive wood pan­elled doors lead­ing to the re­cep­tion rooms.

The large liv­ing room is one of three re­cep­tion rooms with cast iron stoves and it opens into a bay which cap­tures the beau­ti­ful views. A solid wal­nut wooden floor gives this room a warm and rich fin­ish.

For for­mal en­ter­tain­ing your guests can en­joy the sea views from a large bay in the for­mal

din­ing room which has an oak fire­place with a cast iron stove. This room is fin­ished with solid oak floor­ing and an arch­way leads into a draw­ing room.

An­other bay as well as glass slid­ing doors create light in this de­light­ful room which fea­tures a carved oak fire­place with cast iron stove.

An in­ner hall­way with a cloak­room leads to a cosy fam­ily room also fin­ished with a solid oak floor and cast iron stove.

The home office is bright with a dou­ble glazed door lead­ing to the gar­den and there is lovely built in shelv­ing and a solid oak floor.

A ground floor shower room is spa­cious and mod­ern with a thermo shower unit, low flush WC and pedestal wash hand basin.

The kitchen/din­ing room is top notch with a good range of units in solid oak with gran­ite ef­fect work sur­faces.

It comes with an in­te­grated fridge and a fab­u­lous oil fired Stan­ley Range, as well as a stain­less steel un­der oven and four ring gas hob.

This bright room opens into a large bay which makes a lovely seat­ing area and there is an is­land unit with mar­ble work sur­face.

A sep­a­rate util­ity is well fit­ted out with units and plumbed for a wash­ing ma­chine and vented for a tum­ble dryer.

Up­stairs and the spa­cious master suite will im­press with its large bay win­dow and arch­way lead­ing to a well fit­ted dress­ing room with mir­ror slide robes.

There is also a con­tem­po­rary en suite with low flush WC and dou­ble built in shower cu­bi­cle with at­trac­tive mo­saic tiling de­tail. The wash hand basin is set in an im­pres­sive unit with cup­boards and shelv­ing.

The re­main­ing three bed­rooms are all fit­ted out with mod­ern robes and the fam­ily bath­room is large and lux­u­ri­ous.

It is fin­ished with part pan­elled walls and fea­tures a large wood pan­elled bath with chrome tele­phone hand shower and mixer tap plus a dou­ble shower cu­bi­cle.

There is more than enough space for fam­ily liv­ing in the gar­dens. The front is in lawn with a drive­way where there is gen­er­ous park­ing.

The en­closed back gar­den is also in lawn with a re­cently laid gran­ite path­way lead­ing to ter­race where you can en­joy the su­perb coastal views.
