Look inside: Stunning detached family home on the outskirts of Coleraine

This stunning home impresses with its generous indoor and outdoor space and its high spec finishes. Stephanie Bell reports...

Nestled on the outskirts of Coleraine along the tranquil Gortycavan Road, this detached family home is a real stunner inside.

It is a surprisingly spacious house which is bright and modern inside with exceptional accommodation over two and a half floors.

The house sits well back from the road behind a large lawn and in fact the gardens extend to almost an acre with lovely secluded entertaining areas at the back.

There are three spacious reception rooms, a bespoke solid sycamore wood kitchen and five double bedrooms with beautiful panoramic elevated coastal and rural views.

The house also comes with an attached annex ideal for teenagers or for anyone who wants to work from home.

Living here puts you close to the North Coast's main resorts of Castlerock, Portrush, and Portstewart.

For the commuter, there are major transport links to Londonderry and Belfast and you are also close to local schools and shops.

From the moment you step into the large hallway there is a sense of space and openness which pervades this lovely home.

Solid wood flooring and feature floor lighting hint at the level of finish which you can expert throughout. Glass windows overlooking the reception rooms are a lovely feature in the hallway.

There has been no expense spared creating the show stopping kitchen/living/dining room where double patio doors open onto a deck.

The kitchen from Mowlem & Co is in solid sycamore with a combination of wood block and granite work surfaces.

There is a matching island unit with casual dining table attached and the full range of appliances including a Miele dishwasher, integrated Neff oven, microwave oven and a fridge freezer.

A ceramic gas hob is fitted into the island unit over which there is a suspended stainless steel cooker hood.

The kitchen floor is tiled while solid wood flooring has been laid in the living/dining areas.

Other smart finishing touches include a feature cast iron school radiator, a contemporary vertical radiator and wood burning stove.

There is also a well equipped utility room and a walk in pantry.

For more formal entertaining you have a separate dining room also with cast iron school radiator, wooden floor and a feature fireplace with gas fire.

The lounge is modern and bright with a lovely wall mounted gas fireplace and sliding patio doors opening to the decked patio.

This house is just as generous when it comes to sleeping and bathing accommodation.

Bedroom one comes with a modern en suite and another has access to a bathroom with roll top bath and there is a shower room with powered jet shower, plus a family bathroom.

The master suite has a walk in dressing room and a luxury en suite to itself. This lovely room also has built in high gloss wardrobes and a full width window seat offering elevated views across to Portstewart.

There is also an Orangery styled glazed link between the house and the annex which has two rooms, one of which features a multi fuel stove and patio doors opening onto a courtyard patio. There is also a cloakroom with WC.

The house also comes with a garage and beautifully landscaped gardens plus a paddock.
