Look inside: Cool and contemporary marina townhouse in Bangor

This elegant period town house offers high end modern living right by the sea at Bangor marina. Stephanie Bell reports...

This elegant period town house stands proud on an elevated site with stunning views over Bangor marina.

The turn-of-the-century property has been transformed inside into a chic and contemporary family home.

Quality and style can be found in every well finished room and special mention has to go to the luxurious bathrooms and the high end kitchen which opens into a wall of glass with sloping glass ceiling.

This is a beautiful home where space is not an issue as you get five bedrooms, all with access to one of three decadent en suites, a drawing room with dining area, kitchen/breakfast room, utility and cloakroom.

The owners have taken full advantage of this property's wonderful setting looking out over the sea with a front sun terrace, a balcony and there is also a barbeque area at the back.


The location couldn't be better for walking into town for shopping, dining and socialising.

This house itself really is quite special. An entrance porch leads into the hallway where original corbels and cornicing remind you that this home has history.

Enter into the sweeping drawing/dining room which has dual aspect windows with a large bay overlooking the marina.


There is a multi fuel stove sitting in a tiled recess and a sliding stained glass panel opens to the kitchen/breakfast room.

The kitchen is top quality, fitted out in rich solid oak units with polished granite worktops and there is a large central island with inset twin enamel sinks.

What elevates this room into something unique is the breakfast area which is built into a conservatory style bay housing a solid granite breakfast bar.

An oak door leads out to a balcony and barbeque area.

The kitchen comes with a Belling range cooker and is plumbed for a dishwasher.


There is a utility room with a bi-fold door opening to a cloakroom with half tiled walls and feature bronze glass wash hand basin and WC.

Upstairs all five bedrooms are beautifully presented and each has access to a stunning en suite.

The main bedroom opens into a large bay overlooking the sea and bedroom five, which would also make a perfect office, opens onto a balcony with sea views.


The bathrooms really are designer in style and the attention to detail is impressive.

The master comes with an infra-red sauna and a large fully tiled 'wet' shower with telephone hand shower and oversized drencher shower with double glazed crackled glass panel.


It is beautifully finished with feature tiled walls and a stunning large format bronze tiled floor and gold glass 'his and her' wash hand basins.

Outside there are lots of lovely spaces to relax and enjoy the views including a screened first floor balcony. There is also a driveway with parking for two cars.

For the full lisitng visit
