Distinctive family home with a difference in Dunmurry
This spacious family home offers a unique interior with designer character and modern finishes. Stephanie Bell reports...
Brilliant design and an unusual layout give this modern family home unique character.
The house has taken open plan living to a whole new level with a beautiful wooden vaulted ceiling and feature staircase making the main lounge/dining area feel open, stylish and bright.
The accommodation is laid out in a non-conventional way which also adds interest with the kitchen/dining room on an upper ground floor level accessed from that wonderful staircase.
The house offers around 2,000 sq ft of space and also includes four bedrooms, a study, utility room and family bathroom.
The location ticks a lot of boxes too as the house sits in a quiet cul-de-sac off Upper Dunmurry Lane surrounded by many amenities and close to leading schools.
It sits on a large site with a beautiful private back garden, driveway parking, a front garden in lawn and a garage.
The striking living area is found on the lower ground floor. A beautiful wooden stair case leads directly into this spacious room which has been exquisitely finished off.
A double height ceiling which is finished in wood with dark beams creates an airy, open space to relax with the family.
An exposed brick fireplace with railway sleeper mantle and raised hearth and a solid wooden floor perfectly fits with the rustic, relaxed style of this room.
Sliding glass doors open directly onto a back garden patio.
Upstairs on the ground floor is the modern kitchen/dining room.
A galley style kitchen opens up into a large dining area which could easily serve as a causal lounging area as well.
The kitchen is well equipped with an integrated four ring halogen hob, oven, fridge/freezer and dishwasher.
Three of the four bedrooms are on this level and each is modern with wood strip flooring and the master has built in robes and a vanity unit with sink.
The family bathroom is fully tiled and features a panel bath with electric shower over it and a pedestal wash hand basin.
The fourth bedroom on the lower ground floor also has strip wood flooring and there is a study and basement storage.
The large back garden of this property is a real delight, screened by mature trees and with a sitting area in stone which can be accessed from the kitchen as well as a patio.
