Look inside: Seriously stylish Comber family home

This wonderful family home offers generous space and tasteful finishes inside and out. Stephanie Bell reports...

A superb sense of space and style spreads through every delightful room in this Co Down family home.

The current owners obviously have an eye for design and have created a beautiful home which feels warm and welcoming as well as classy and stylish.

The house sits on an elevated site at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and is nestled among pretty, mature gardens.

Just a short journey from Belfast, Comber offers a sense of community with plenty of good schools and all the natural attractions and parks around Strangford Lough to enjoy.

An ideal spot to bring up a family, this detached home will delight any viewer with its tasteful interior and generous room sizes.

In total there is 2,900 sq ft which includes a large hallway with gallery landing, drawing room, dining room, family room, sunroom, contemporary kitchen, utility room, five bedrooms, master with en suite shower room and a family bathroom.

The property is set back behind a front garden in lawn with an array of mature trees and plants alongside a brick driveway.

You step from a porch into a surprisingly large and bright hallway with a double height ceiling and an impressive staircase leading up to a minstrel gallery landing.

This room is finished with a solid walnut floor and double glazed doors open to the drawing room.

This room has been beautifully styled with a striking feature wall in purple where a stone fireplace with large open dog grate takes pride of place.

This room is also finished with a rich solid walnut floor and double glazed doors open into a bright dining room where French doors lead to a patio in the garden.

Solid walnut flooring runs through the dining room and is also used in the family room which is a cosy space with a contemporary wall mounted Gazco gas fire.

The kitchen is really special. Ultra modern, it has been fitted by a company called Function Design and is entirely bespoke.

The slab limed units are fitted from floor to ceiling along one wall with open shelving and space for a double American fridge freezer.

The worktops are in stone and a lovely contrast is the bright beech worktops on a large central island.

The kitchen has a Quooker hot water tap, space for a wine fridge and comes with an integrated Fisher & Paykel chest freezer and a Britannia range with six ring gas top and double oven.

A casual dining space opens via an archway into a south facing sun room which opens directly onto the garden.

There is also a utility styled by Function Design with stone worktops and plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer.

Off the utility is a ground floor cloakroom with WC.

Upstairs and all of the bedrooms have that lovely boutique hotel feel with modern decor.

The master has the added luxury of an automated drop down TV unit with integrated speaker and it comes with a spacious en suite shower room.

There are built in robes in three of the remaining four bedrooms.

The family bathroom is also contemplator with a deep fill panelled bath and a fully tiled shower unit.

The gardens are also very special. As well as the mature front garden, the sun filled back garden is in lawn with a Tegular paved patio with plenty of room for outdoor dining and children at play.

There is also an integral garage.
