Shining Light

by Stephanie Bell

This ultra modern, intelligently designed home within 'Old Holywood' has been created for those who enjoy the finer things in life.

Luxury is key here, with designer fixtures and fittings throughout and, nestled in a private setting, it also enjoys a peaceful residential location within easy walking distance of the town centre.

The main focus of the design was to create a high quality and energy-saving living environment, while keeping maintenance and upkeep to a minimum.

The architecturally striking exterior whets your appetite for what's to be found inside and, if contemporary is your thing, then this house will not disappoint.

Large, square, modern black-framed windows are a feature of the house and they add to the modern feel of this property's spacious, open plan interior.

The accommodation includes an open plan entrance hall leading to a vast and very beautiful living/dining/kitchen area.

There is also a separate drawing room with fireplace, a study/snug/kids' room, a large utility and cloakroom with WC on the ground floor.

Upstairs, there is a fantastic master suite with dressing and bathroom with separate shower, three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom with shower cubicle and hot press.

The house is fitted with high tech wiring which includes a security system, satellite TV and a range of telephone and TV points.

There is a Beam central ventilation system with heat recovery and a Beam integrated vacuum.

The Phoenix gas central heating system is electronically programmed and there is a pressurised hot and cold water system.

Small details which give the house an added touch of class can be found in the moulded skirting, architraves and oak internal doors.

Even the staircase makes a style statement, built in oak with stainless steel handrail.

The house is triple glazed for added comfort, not to mention savings on heating bills, and the exterior walls are Webber rendered with granite sills.

Entering through electric gates with an intercom system gives an immediate sense of the level of luxury which lies ahead, and the bespoke design of the exterior is also impressive.

Most of the ground floor has been given over to one vast modern, family, open plan living space.

White walls, black-framed windows and solid strip wooden flooring create an immediate contemporary feel to the interior and, in keeping with this theme, the kitchen units by 'Parks' are a blend of designer high gloss black with a white L shaped island unit - very sleek and modern.

A large gas stove sitting on a simple ledge of grey brick makes a bold statement in the living room and, everywhere, the oversized windows flood this bespoke home with natural light.

The utility room is very spacious and also comes complete with fully fitted units.

An ultra modern designer bathroom features floating his and her washbasins, a long open shower wall and deep fill bath with central wall mounted taps.

The house nestles on a private site surrounded by stone walls and mature trees, with a tarmac driveway which is flanked by lawns.

It also enjoys a great location, close to Holywood's vibrant centre and also just a short walk to the stunning North Down coastline and local parks.

Leading schools are close by, as are many sporting facilities such as golf, tennis, sailing and various after school clubs.
