Mod­ern Liv­ing


Belfast Telegraph - Propertynews - - Front Page -

SIT­TING in around three acres of pri­vate land­scaped grounds this sprawl­ing and very strik­ing prop­erty of­fers ev­ery­thing you could de­sire from a mod­ern lux­ury fam­ily home.

The house enjoys a beau­ti­ful set­ting with panoramic views over the rolling coun­try­side tak­ing in the Mournes to the South and with glimpses of Strang­ford Lough and The Quoile River.

The land­scaped grounds are laid out in­for­mally to blend in with the nat­u­ral beauty of this lo­ca­tion and in­clude an en­ter­tain­ing space wired for sound with a cov­ered ter­race, built in bar­be­cue and ex­posed tim­ber trusses.

The house is lo­cated just a few min­utes from the pop­u­lar vil­lages of Kil­lyleagh and Cross­gar with sail­ing and golf clubs on the doorstep.

It has been re­cently ex­tended to pro­vide over 6,000 sq ft of ac­com­mo­da­tion which in­cludes a new “en­ter­tain­ment wing” with garag­ing, which could eas­ily be used as an an­nex.

The stan­dard of fin­ish through­out is ex­cep­tional and the in­te­rior is ul­tra con­tem­po­rary in styling.

There are five re­cep­tion rooms and five bed­rooms, four with en suites as well as a home gym and cin­ema room.

Lux­ury touches abound and in­clude a BEAM vac­uum sys­tem, sound sys­tem, an alarm and CCTV

se­cu­rity sys­tem.

Steps lead up to a hard wood front door flanked by dec­o­ra­tive col­umns.

The re­cep­tion hall is a de­light with a vaulted dou­ble glazed roof light and mod­ern tiled floor.

Slid­ing doors open to a mod­ern draw­ing room with a beau­ti­ful lime­stone fire­place with wood burn­ing stove and at­trac­tive be­spoke built in shelv­ing.

A magnificent kitchen/liv­ing/ din­ing room is ul­tra mod­ern with a large roof light flood­ing the main work area with nat­u­ral light.

The kitchen is fit­ted hand painted tulip wood units by Func­tion De­sign Fur­ni­ture of Killinchy.

There is a navy oil fired Aga, Sile­stone pol­ished com­pos­ite stone work sur­faces and a large is­land unit with break­fast bar and inset stain­less steel sink with a boil­ing wa­ter tap.

The ap­pli­ances in­clude an in­te­grated dish­washer, ceramic hob, large in­te­grated fridge, con­cealed built in Neff eye level oven and hous­ing for a mi­crowave.

The spa­cious din­ing/sit­ting area is fin­ished with a ceramic tiled floor, re­cessed spot lights and speak­ers for an in­te­grated sound sys­tem. French doors open to a ter­race and the gar­dens.

Mod­ern slid­ing pocket doors open to re­veal a stylish liv­ing room which is also con­tem­po­rary and again a lovely sense of space is cre­ated with a vaulted ceil­ing.

This room fea­tures a raised hole in the wall fire­place with con­tem­po­rary gas fire and a re­cess for a TV above it. It is also wired for sound.

An­other bright hall­way with maple floor and a ca­sual sit­ting area with glazed doors over­look­ing the gar­den leads to a lovely study or snug.

This room is fin­ished with a marble fire­place with wood burn­ing stove and is wired for a plasma TV.

Each of the five bed­rooms is beau­ti­fully pre­sented and the en suites of­fer deca­dent stylish bathing spa­ces.

The master bed­room suite is pure lux­ury with its own open plan land­ing with sit­ting area and study space lead­ing to the bed­room with dress­ing room and lux­ury en suite bath­room.

Four dou­ble sky lights of­fer stun­ning coun­try views.

The en suite is the per­fect re­treat with a dou­ble-end free stand­ing bath fac­ing a plasma TV, sound sys­tem, walk through wet room shower and twin wall hung van­ity units with mir­ror above.

The ac­com­mo­da­tion con­tin­ues in this huge home with an­other hall­way lead­ing to the garage, a cloak­room, boot room, util­ity and a sep­a­rate kitch­enette which opens via French doors to a bar­beque area for easy food prepa­ra­tion while en­ter­tain­ing.

There is also a mod­ern ground floor shower room.

The re­cent re­design has in­cluded a su­perb first floor open plan gym with wall mounted TV and a cin­ema room wired for home en­ter­tain­ment. French doors open to a large bal­cony.

The ex­te­rior of this prop­erty is ev­ery bit as special as the in­te­rior with a lovely stone walled entrance and sweep­ing peb­ble drive­way which leads to a tar­mac court­yard with gen­er­ous park­ing at the back of the house where there is a large garage with twin re­mote con­trolled doors.

The pro­fes­sion­ally land­scaped pri­vate gar­dens in­clude lawns, ter­races and a wood­land area, plus a raised pad­dock which has a sep­a­rate entrance.
