EX­PECT pri­vacy, peace and more than a lit­tle lux­ury in this su­perb pe­riod de­tached home in Craigavad.

Nes­tled in al­most an acre of ma­ture, pri­vate grounds this lovely prop­erty sits on an el­e­vated site of­fer­ing beau­ti­ful views over Belfast Lough.

In­side there is ex­ten­sive ac­com­mo­da­tion all fin­ished with in­cred­i­ble at­ten­tion to de­tail.

The house also boasts many fine orig­i­nal fea­tures in­clud­ing high ceil­ings, or­nate cor­nices, ceil­ing roses and fire­places.

The gen­er­ous ac­com­mo­da­tion has been thought­fully laid out so that the prin­ci­pal rooms make the most of the pri­vacy and nat­u­ral light.

Down­stairs of­fers a gra­cious draw­ing room, for­mal din­ing room, liv­ing room, fam­ily room, kitchen with ca­sual din­ing area, a large laun­dry room, a study and WC.

Up­stairs there are six bed­rooms most with won­der­ful views across the gar­dens to­wards Belfast Lough.

Two of the bed­rooms come with an en suite shower rooms and there is a large and mod­ern fam­ily bath­room.

A vestibule with orig­i­nal hard­wood front door leads into an el­e­gant hall­way which is beau­ti­fully fin­ished off with part pan­elled walls, cor­niced ceil­ing and wood strip floor­ing.

Off this spacious room is a mod­ern cloak­room with WC and wash hand basin and a range of built in units for hang­ing and stor­ing out­door clothes.

The for­mal din­ing room cap­tures the pe­riod beauty of the house with its in­tri­cate cor­nic­ing, dual win­dows and stun­ning mar­ble fire­place.

The same dec­o­ra­tive cor­nic­ing is a real fea­ture in the draw­ing room which also has dual win­dows in­clud­ing a large bay and an­other fire­place with carved wood sur­round.

The liv­ing room is equally charm­ing with an­other large bay of­fer­ing views over Belfast Lough and again there is fab­u­lous cor­nic­ing, a ceil­ing rose and an open fire.

If you work from home you will love the study which looks out over the gar­den and Belfast Lough and has a glazed door lead­ing into the gar­den.

Off the study is an­other cosy fam­ily snug which in con­trast to the pe­riod style of the other liv­ing rooms, is a mod­ern ad­di­tion to this lovely home with a wall of glass and French doors open­ing to the gar­dens.

Pride of place is given to a mag­nif­i­cent stove and this room of­fers ac­cess to a but­ler’s pantry.

The kitchen which comes with a bright and spacious din­ing area is also up-to-the-minute with light grey painted units and gran­ite work­tops.

There is a two oven oil fired Aga cooker as well as a Smeg in­te­grated oven and four ring gas hob. You also get a built in Bosch dish­washer and a break­fast bar.

The din­ing area which would eas­ily hold a ta­ble for up to 10 peo­ple is per­fectly lo­cated in front of French doors which open onto a rear court­yard and the gar­den.

A well equipped util­ity room with tongue and groove wall panelling com­pletes the ex­ten­sive ground floor ac­com­mo­da­tion.

Up­stairs all of the bed­rooms en­joy a beau­ti­ful out­look over the gar­den.

The mas­ter bed­room has sleek built in robes and comes with a mod­ern en suite shower room and there is a guest bed­room with its own en suite.

The fam­ily bath­room is a mod­ern space with tongue and groove pan­elled walls and a range of built in stor­age cup­boards.

It has a pan­elled bath with mixer taps, tele­phone hand shower and shower screen with a fully tiled sur­round, an at­trac­tive van­ity sink unit with mixer taps and a heated towel rail.

The won­der­ful grounds of this home are the per­fect re­treat for all the fam­ily with a mul­ti­tude of ma­ture plants and trees, man­i­cured lawns and a choice of pa­tio ar­eas.

There is also a dou­ble garage and a gated en­trance lead­ing to a stone drive­way with park­ing for sev­eral cars.
