WITH a stylish in­te­rior fin­ished to a su­pe­rior stan­dard this im­pres­sive coun­try home will wow any vis­i­tor.

It sits in around half an acre of im­mac­u­late pri­vate grounds in a beau­ti­ful ru­ral set­ting close to the vil­lage of Gilford in Co Down.

The prop­erty of­fers 31,000 sq ft of bright and well fin­ished ac­com­mo­da­tion with two for­mal re­cep­tion rooms, a sun­room, mod­ern kitchen, four dou­ble bed­rooms, mas­ter with en suite and a fam­ily bath­room.

Lux­ury touches abound and down­stairs there is un­der floor heat­ing while up­stairs is kept snug with high qual­ity state­ment floor­ing from Ul­ster Car­pets.

The en­trance hall is a grand af­fair and im­me­di­ately sets the tone for the high qual­ity to be found through­out this lovely home.

It is a huge space ex­tend­ing to over 20 feet and is fin­ished with be­spoke Ge­or­gian pan­elling on the walls and an Ital­ian tiled floor. There is an un­der stair cloak­room and or­nate cor­niced ceil­ing.

Glazed dou­ble doors open to the el­e­gant drown­ing room. This dual as­pect room is beau­ti­fully styled and at its heart is a con­tem­po­rary mar­ble fire­place with gran­ite hearth.

Also off the hall­way is the din­ing room which has an­other mar­ble fire­place and more cor­nic­ing, plus gor­geous de­signer wall­pa­per.

The sun room is a re­lax­ing fam­ily space with vast win­dows look­ing out on the gar­dens and is fin­ished with a tiled floor.

It leads out onto a paved ter­race over­look­ing the gar­dens.

From the sun­room you can en­ter the fan­tas­tic kitchen/din­ing room – a chic and con­tem­po­rary space which has been fit­ted out with high qual­ity units topped with mar­ble.

There is a break­fast bar and a se­lec­tion of curved and glazed dis­play units and pride of place is given to a gas dou­ble range cooker. There is also an in­te­grated dish­washer and fridge.

A nat­u­ral stone clad wall makes a de­sign state­ment in the din­ing area which has a large pic­ture win­dow over­look­ing the gar­dens.

There is also a util­ity room plumbed for a wash­ing ma­chine and wired for a tum­ble dryer and which in­cludes an in­te­grated full length freezer and a range of units.

A ground floor WC is ul­tra mod­ern with a nat­u­ral stone fea­ture wall, a wash hand basin set in an at­trac­tive van­ity unit and a wall mounted WC.

The be­spoke wall pan­elling from the hall­way con­tin­ues up­stairs onto the spa­cious gallery style land­ing.

Each of the bed­rooms is mod­ern in styling and has built in wardrobes and the bath­rooms have a cool, de­signer edge.

The mas­ter en suite fea­tures a walk in shower and the wash hand basin is set in a wall hung mod­ern van­ity unit.

There is a heated towel rail, lighted mir­ror and re­cessed sen­sor light, plus un­der floor heat­ing.

The fam­ily bath­room is a stun­ning spa like room with a gor­geous Vic­to­ria & Al­bert free­stand­ing bath and dou­ble wash hand basins set in a mar­ble-topped van­ity unit. There is also a walk in shower and un­der floor heat­ing.

Out­side this home con­tin­ues to im­press with vast grounds im­mac­u­lately kept and land­scaped.

Sand­stone pil­lars with elec­tric gates open onto a long drive­way which cuts through ex­ten­sive lawns to the front of the prop­erty.

There is an­other huge lawn at the back with ma­ture trees and a tran­quil paved ter­race of­fer­ing views over the rolling coun­try­side.

There is also a dou­ble garage with elec­tric Hor­mann doors and a gar­den store with elec­tric door.
