THIS charm­ing 1800s cot­tage has been ren­o­vated and ex­tended into a stun­ning fam­ily home with a bright, mod­ern and open in­te­rior.

The house feels lux­u­ri­ous through­out and has got all the space you need in­side with a liv­ing room open to a mu­sic room, kitchen/din­ing/liv­ing room, snug, util­ity, cloak­room, five bed­rooms, two with en suite and mas­ter with dress­ing room, plus a fam­ily bath­room.

Nes­tled in a tran­quil ru­ral lo­ca­tion, it is also handy for com­mut­ing to Belfast and Lis­burn.

The quaint ex­te­rior with its white washed walls and at­trac­tive slid­ing sash win­dows leads into a home which is cosy, invit­ing and ul­tra mod­ern in places.

The re­cep­tion hall has been de­signed like an invit­ing snug with an open fire which leads via church style doors into an en­trance hall.

This room is fin­ished with solid wooden floor­ing from Wil­sons Sal­vage yard and a real fea­ture is the wooden stair­case which leads up onto a curved land­ing.

There is a cloak­room with wash hand basin and sep­a­rate WC just off the hall­way.

A solid wooden floor and fea­ture wooden ceil­ing keeps the liv­ing room cosy and this wel­com­ing fam­ily space opens into a bright mu­sic room and of­fice, also with wooden floor.

The wow fac­tor in this prop­erty can be found at the back with an ul­tra mod­ern ex­ten­sive which of­fers a huge L shaped kitchen, din­ing room and liv­ing room.

The kitchen is top of the range from Robin­sons with hand painted mod­ern units with solid wooden work sur­faces. There is a su­perb is­land unit and dresser, a Belfast sink and oil fired Aga as well as an in­te­grated Smeg oven.

French doors open from the din­ing area into the gar­den and a large arch­way leads into the su­perb liv­ing space where beau­ti­ful be­spoke ra­di­a­tor cov­ers and built in shelv­ing are a great fea­ture of this room.

Rich hard­wood floor­ing runs through­out.

There is also a good util­ity room fit­ted with cup­boards and hard­wood work sur­faces with an­other Belfast sink and plumb­ing for a wash­ing ma­chine and tum­ble dryer.

Up­stairs and the curved land­ing has a spec­tac­u­lar floor to ceil­ing fea­ture win­dow of­fer­ing stun­ning coun­try views.

The bed­rooms are all mod­ern in pre­sen­ta­tion and the mas­ter comes with a good walk in dress­ing room with hang­ing and shelv­ing space and an en suite shower room.

Bed­room three also comes with an en suite shower room and the fam­ily bath­room caters for every­one with its con­tem­po­rary free­stand­ing bath with mixer tap and tele­phone hand shower over as well as a fully tiled shower cu­bi­cle.

Out­side this prop­erty also has much to of­fer with drive­way park­ing and an en­closed pri­vate back gar­den with pa­tio and lawns look­ing out over the coun­try­side.
