Look inside: Rural bliss with modern country home in Bangor
This modern country home offers lots of designer style and space for all the family. Stephanie Bell reports...
This impressive gated country home enjoys a peaceful rural setting yet is just minutes from Bangor, Newtownards and Donaghadee,
Everything you need for family life is right here with generous gardens of around a third of an acre and beautifully appointed accommodation of 3,100 sq ft set out over three floors.
The flexible interior offers four double bedrooms with a rather special master suite with en suite shower room, a walk-in wardrobe and a balcony with great views over the countryside.
The spacious ground floor offers an open plan drawing room and dining room with access to a first floor bedroom.
A lower ground floor contains a deluxe bathroom, another double bedroom and a utility with access to the garage and there is an upper ground floor devoted to a luxury kitchen, lounge and sun room. This floor also has a shower room and double bedroom.
Another bedroom and the master suite are located on the first floor.
Outside electronic cast iron gates open onto a driveway which sweeps round to the front of the house where there is attractive landscaping and plenty of parking as well as a garage.
The interior has been well thought out with a multitude of bespoke designer features and top quality finishes adding personality.
These begin in the hallway, the central hub of the home and a room in its own right with feature ceiling beams and multiple windows with steps leading up to some of the main rooms.
The large drawing room/dining room has a cosy feel with more beams and a solid wooden floor. A staircase leads up to a double bedroom.
The bathrooms are all contemporary in styling and there is also a utility room and walk in pantry.
A rear hallway with more ceiling beams and feature glass brick walls leads to the luxury kitchen which is fitted out in solid wood units with granite worktops.
The kitchen comes with an integrated dishwasher and two sinks. There are two sets of French windows here, one opening to a Juliette balcony and the other to a larger balcony.
A modern lounge at the back of the property is also finished with a solid wooden floor and a lovely feature in here is a Dan Skan self cleaning wood burning stove.
Sliding patio doors open into a large sun room also with wooden floor and feature ceiling beams.
The master suite is very special too and as well as that great walk in wardrobe there is a decadent en suite with a large corner shower and sink area with granite worktops. It opens onto a lovely balcony where you can sit and enjoy breakfast with superb rural views.
A lot of care has gone into designing the outside of the property which has a large back garden in lawn with an entertainment area and patio, as well as the balconies and spacious driveway parking.
