Look inside: Seaside beauty with renovated bungalow in Bangor
This bright and beautiful renovated bungalow offers designer style in a great location. Stephanie Bell reports...
Perched high above Belfast Lough close to the North Down coastal path this beautiful bungalow offers modern designer-style accommodation.
The Mews dates back to 1903 but has been sympathetically modernised throughout turning it into a bright, contemporary family home.
Inside there are four bedrooms, a drawing room, open plan kitchen/living/dining room, utility, ground floor WC and family bathroom.
From many of the main rooms and the gardens you can enjoy fabulous views across Belfast Lough.
This location is just a stone's throw from Carnalea train halt, with Bangor just two stops away and Carnalea Golf Club a short walk.
Inside the property has been beautifully styled and is presented to show house standard.
The hallway with solid oak flooring has a cloakroom for guests with a hand basin set in an oak surround.
On the ground floor bedroom four can be found and could easily serve as a dining room. It is finished with a limestone fireplace and solid oak flooring with superb Lough views.
French doors flood the drawing room with natural light and open to sandstone steps which lead down to your very own seaside garden in lawn with a lovely patio.
This room also has solid oak flooring and a brick fireplace with pine sleeper mantel and an open fire.
The open plan kitchen/living/dining room is high spec and again finished with solid oak flooring with large windows, roof lights and French doors letting lots of natural light in.
The kitchen is fitted with modern handcrafted units topped with granite work surfaces and comes with an integrated dishwasher, fridge and AGA range cooker.
There is a centre island and the kitchen area is nicely finished off with a natural stone floor. This room opens to a courtyard patio.
The utility room is also well equipped with a Belfast sink, wood effect work surfaces and is vented for a tumble dryer and plumbed for a washing machine.
Upstairs and all of the bedrooms have a lovely designer feel.
The master is superb with a large window overlooking Belfast Lough and has a good range of built in robes.
The en suite shower room is ultra modern with a Mira electric shower, wash hand basin with oak wraparound bench and a feature pebbled floor.
One of the remaining two bedrooms on this floor enjoys sea views.
The main bathroom is hotel boutique chic with an oval freestanding bath and a freestanding wash hand basin set on a beautiful wooden unit with shelves. There is a walk in shower with rain head and designer feature floor tiles.
Outside this home also delights. There is a shared laneway leading to a sandstone courtyard area at the front of the house with a pebble driveway and raised lawn bordered by a stone wall.
At the back the garden is in lawn with a patio with uninterrupted sea views.
