Craigavad has long been associated with affluent living in Northern Ireland and this beautiful property complete with swimming pool is typical of the levels of luxury to be found in this leafy suburb.

The house has been extensively extended over the past 20 years to include a new master suite and additional drawing room with a 10 ft ceiling which opens to a dining room which in turn leads to a family room and study.

The airy, spacious open plan style gives the home a graceful feel and as you would expect of a house of this calibre the fittings throughout in the bathrooms and kitchen are all top notch.

Outside as well as the luxury addition of a pool house with its own living accommodation and heated outdoor pool, you can also enjoy 3/4 of an acre of private, mature, manicured gardens accessed via a tree lined drive.

The location is of course unrivalled and close by is a coastal path and the beach as well as being just minutes from The Royal Belfast Golf Club.

The house itself is impressive and sits proud in front of large immaculate lawns.

Stepping into the hallway gives you an idea of the attention to detail with corniced ceiling, attractive radiator covers, wall lighting and a staircase with hand painted spindles leading to the first floor.

The little touches continue even in the cloakroom which is fitted with Villeroy and Boch sanitary ware with feature black and gold mixer taps on the wash hand basin and unusually it also features a urinal with flush mechanism as well as a low flush WC.

The main living area in this house is breathtaking in terms of its openness, finishes and brightness.

The high ceiling and large picture windows add to the sense of space and there is an Adams style fireplace, cornice ceiling, rose, rese detailing and luxurious underfloor heating.

Steps lead up to an elegant dining room with another large picture window looking out over the garden.

From here, double doors open to a lovely family room where there is a wooden fireplace and another large picture window.

The study with feature port hole window and another large picture window is a pleasant place to work allowing you to enjoy the tranquil views of the garden.

The kitchen is practical in its design with lots of cupboards and designer appliances which include a De Dietrich four ring ceramic induction hob, Gaggenau integrated barbeque grill, deep fat fryer and eye level oven with concealed microwave. There is also an integrated fridge and a Milie dishwasher.

A striking feature is a polished brass slated ceiling and for casual family eating there is a built in dining area with views over the pool.

The upstairs is just as spacious and high spec. The new master suite is a decadent space with a fantastic walk in dressing room all fitted with lots of hanging space, shoe racks, cabinets, shelves and an integrated mirror.

The en suite is like a five star spa room with a large double central bath and a huge shower enclosure, low flush WC and urinal, three heated towel rails and stunning modern tiling.

There are three more double bedrooms and the guest room also comes with an en suite.

The main bathroom is another contemporary spa-like space with a central Jacuzzi bath with gold taps and integrated head cushion – the height of luxury!

There is a Villeroy and Boch bidet and low flush WC, built in cabinets and granite worktops, plus granite tiled floor. A glass shower enclosure is also finished with granite tiled walls and features an over drencher, telephone shower and power jets.

Outside will also wow you. There is an integrated garage and extensive, beautifully maintained gardens.

The 40 ft pool which is seven feet deep at one end is the perfect party space with a sheltered barbeque area and terraces for sun bathing and dining, all surrounded by mature trees and shrubs.

A summer house is another huge bonus and comes with a living area, fully fitted kitchen, shower room and bedroom and is the perfect guest suite, teenage annex or granny flat.
