Prepare to fall in love when you step through the door of this designer haven in Bangor.

It is a period home which has been renovated and extended to the highest standard with new designer fittings throughout.

The wonderful scale of the interior will seduce you as will the immaculate finish in each generously proportioned room.

A home for the 21st century, it offers around 4,500 sq ft of accommodation, every inch of which reflects a standard of style and finish which are second to none.

The extensive interior accommodation includes a drawing room, dining room, family room, dining reception hall, gorgeous kitchen open to a casual living area with bi-fold doors leading out to a raised terrace.

On the first floor there are five bedrooms, three with en-suite facilities plus a master bathroom.

Outside is just as impressive with well manicured gardens and an 'in and out' driveway with additional parking plus a detached garage.

The entire house has been rewired, re-plumbed and re-roofed with Bangor blue slate.

Modern black aluminium windows make a striking impact in each beautifully finished room.

From an entrance porch you step into a spacious dining reception hall which, with its generous proportions and period features, creates an immediate wow factor.

HomeFinder Property of the Week: The Boat House, Donaghadee

Avoid an urban sprawl with perfect city trees  

Finished with a solid oak floor it also has a lovely granite fireplace, ceiling rose, cornice and period spindle staircase leading up to the first floor. Under floor heating keeps this space cosy for dining and entertaining.

More solid oak flooring runs through the huge family room which is wired for sound and also features a cornice ceiling and ceiling rose.

The incredible living spaces continue with a lovely drawing room with modern wall mounted remote control gas fire, cornice, ceiling rose, solid oak floor and under floor heating.

Panelled bi-fold doors open to the dining room which again is a great space simply styled with a solid oak floor, cornice and ceiling rose.

There is a downstairs cloakroom and then you step into the wonderful open plan designer kitchen/living/dining room.

This ultra modern space oozes sophistication with its high end features. The stone coloured kitchen units are sleek and stylish and feature a large central island with breakfast bar.

They are finished with composite stone worktops, concealed plugs and top of the range appliances which include a Govenje four ring ceramic hob, Bosch dishwasher, Bosch eye level double oven, Whirlpool stainless steel coffee maker, microwave oven and fridge/freezer.

A wall of glass has been created with two sets of bi-folding doors which open onto a terrace.

Just off the kitchen is a chic utility room fitted with the same stone coloured units as the kitchen with composite stone worktops and splash back and housing a clothes shoot from the first floor landing - so no excuses for dropping dirty socks on the floor.

There is also a rear bootroom and a second staircase leading to the first floor landing.

Even the landing is exceptionally spacious and houses a store room with access to the roof space which is floored.

This lovely space retains the period beauty of the original house with a stained glass window and three ceiling roses.

The master suite is luxuriously finished with double doors opening to a balconette.

There is a superb walk in dressing room and an opulent en suite bathroom with free standing bath and infinity tap walk in shower with over drencher, plus a contemporary sink set on a granite shelf with a drawer below it.

Similar luxury can be found in two further en-suite wet rooms and the main family bathroom is simply stunning.

This large designer-styled space features a modern free standing bath with a wall mounted over drench and the sink unit is also wall-mounted and sits on a granite shelf. A fabulous touch is a period cast iron fireplace. Grey slate effect tiles on the floor and one wall gives the room a professional designer feel.

Outside the property has been given just as much attention with electric gates opening onto a gravelled driveway with parking for up to four cars.

There is a detached garage and the large south facing garden which has been landscaped with Milona paved sets and a raised terrace with wall surround and feature wall incorporating mood lighting.

The gardens are laid in lawns with flowerbeds and mature hedging.
