Look inside: Stylish family home in East Belfast
This neat East Belfast abode has recently been remodelled into a modern and stylish family home. Stephanie Bell reports...
A major recent renovation has transformed this detached property into a fabulous modern family home.
An eye for fine detail and quality craftsmanship combined with tasteful choice of flooring and finishes gives the house a stylish and luxurious feel.
Essentially though it is a relaxing and welcoming home where the hub is the fantastic new kitchen/dining room which opens via sliding doors to the back garden.
There are also two spacious reception rooms with bay windows, a ground floor bathroom and bedroom and two large bedrooms on the first floor.
Sitting in one of East Belfast's most sought after streets you can enjoy easy access from here to Belfast, Holywood, Bangor, Newtownards and Dundonald.
The property also lies within the catchment area of a range of the province's leading grammar schools and the vibrant villages of Belmont and Ballyhackamore are within strolling distance.
A driveway leads to the front of the house where a hardwood front door with stained glass inset opens to a superb hallway.
This lovely room is finished with rich oak wall panelling with a plate rack, corniced ceiling and an exposed and treated wooden floor.
The lounge looks superb with an extensive range of bespoke built in shelving flanking a fireplace with cast iron stove and brick recess.
The floor here is also exposed stripped wooden and there is a picture rail and corniced ceiling.
A second living room also oozes personality with wood panelled walls and thick decorative cornicing and another cast iron stove with cherry wood fireplace.
Double doors open to the wonderful modern kitchen which looks right up to date with its green painted units, bespoke display cabinets and Earthstone worktops.
There is an integrated four ring ceramic Bosch hob, integrated wine cooler, built-in Bosch double oven and frosted display units.
The kitchen opens to a dining area with dual aspect windows and extra light coming from a Velux above.
There is sleek built in corner seating and a sliding door to the rear.
The ground floor bedroom could easily serve as a study with its bespoke built in shelving and the bathroom is brand new and super stylish.
It is fitted with a feature vanity unit with a grey ceramic sink, a panelled bath with built-in chrome shower unit, a chrome heated towel rail and is richly finished with feature gloss brick wall tiling and porcelain tiled floor.
The WC is separate and is also fitted with a vanity unit and part tiled walls.
The upstairs bedrooms are modern and bright and one has dual aspect windows, an extensive range of built-in bedroom furniture including wardrobes and cupboards, plus storage in the eaves.
Outside is just as neat with lawns and a paved driveway to the front and an enclosed landscaped back garden with limestone paved patio area, a lawn with loose stones, shrubs and raised flowerbeds. There is a garage plumbed for a washing machine and an outhouse with storage space.
