Video: Tradition mixed with the unexpected at Finaghy Road South
Property of the week 107 Finaghy Road South, Belfast
Expect the unexpected when you step through the door of this traditional-looking detached home in Belfast.
Inside, the mother of all makeovers has transformed what was once a fairly modest house into a high-end designer haven with style stamped all over it.
This property is a superb example of how, with the right amount of vision and talent, the most ordinary of properties can be given an extraordinary lift.
As well as the luxury finishes, once inside one of the biggest surprises is the sheer size of the house.
Walls have been knocked down and large spaces opened up to create dream-like living areas which open on to equally beautiful gardens.
In fact it's the beauty of the finishes and interior design which make this property feel so unique and touring it is a delight.
The extensive accommodation includes a modern open plan drawing room/kitchen/diner, lounge, five bedrooms - two with Jack and Jill en suites and the master with en suite and balcony sitting area - a cinema room, family bathroom and utility.
The real star is the extensive and beautifully-styled open plan kitchen/living/dining room.
Gorgeous solid oak wood flooring provides an instant luxury feel to this huge L-shaped room.
The living area is situated beside concertina windows which fold back to reveal a wonderful deck area.
Built-in book shelves provide a focal wall which carries a large flat screen TV and French windows make a lovely feature in the dining area which joins the fabulously stylish kitchen.
Super sleek high gloss white units with granite work surfaces provide a stylish space to prepare your meals. There are top notch appliances with a Zanussi five-ring gas hob, oven, integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer.
While you can't imagine relaxing anywhere else, there is a beautiful second living room with a bay window and solid wood floor which is currently being used as a play room.
The chic styling continues throughout the entire house and the master bedroom is a real designer space with wonderful French doors flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows opening onto a balcony and smart fitted robes align an entire wall.
The bathrooms and en suites in this house also have that lush feel with contemporary sanitary ware and tasteful designer tiling.
If the house hasn't wowed you then outside at the rear of the property the very luxurious self-contained cinema room certainly will.
This stunning space has also had the designer touch and again is a cool, contemporary room wired for home cinema and sitting in its own building at the back of the garden.
There is also a cloakroom and workshop here.
The garden itself has been attractively landscaped with a paved sun terrace along the back of the property, with steps leading up to lawns in what is a sunny, private space.
The front of the house offers extensive parking space.
