It's a Shore Thing
This home is a haven of tranquility close to Belfast Lough, says Stephanie Bell
This fine period family home enjoys a great location on the main Shore Road at Greenisland, in a pleasant private residents' cul-de-sac where the new road network is due for completion this summer.
A well-maintained home, it offers lots of charm and character with great family accommodation.
The house also sits on a spacious mature site with lovely lough views from the first floor.
There are four bedrooms and three reception rooms, including a quaint garden room which looks out onto the private gardens.
Original oak panelling and a parquet floor makes a grand first impression in the beautiful period entrance hall.
The drawing room has a feature brick fireplace and more beautiful wood block parquet flooring.
This room opens on to the delightful garden room, which is full of character with a sloping tongue and groove ceiling and built in bookcase - the perfect retreat, whatever the weather. A large picture window is a wonderful feature in the family room, which also has built-in units and a wood block parquet floor plus stone fireplace.
The kitchen is fitted with cream shaker-style units which suit the period style of the property perfectly.
There is a Prima four ring hob and electric oven, integrated fridge and dishwasher.
A separate utility room is also fitted with a sink and a good range of units. Upstairs, all four bedrooms benefit from built-in wardrobes and three of them enjoy great views over Belfast Lough.
The family bathroom is modern with a sleek, glass-topped vanity unit and there is a panelled bath with telephone hand shower and mixer taps.
Outside, the property has an integral garage and mature gardens to the front and back. If you love gardening, the private, mature rear garden is geared up for you with its own potting shed and greenhouse, plus garden equipment store. There is also a patio and,at the front, a generous driveway with parking.
