Lough side living: Video tour of modern family home in Strangford
This fine modern family home in Strangford enjoys a superb location and a high end interior. Stephanie Bell reports...
Sitting alongside Strangford Lough this marvellous modern home has the wow factor.
Thought to be one of the best sites in the village of Strangford, the setting alone with its picturesque views over the Lough will charm you.
However prepare to be impressed as you tour the stunning interior which boasts a wonderful modern extension.
The majority of the rooms look towards Strangford Lough and take in the ferry travelling to and from Portaferry.
It is a spacious family home with a living room, family kitchen with breakfast bar and formal dining and living areas, family room/office, three bedrooms, two sharing a Jack and Jill en suite bathroom and the master bedroom with its own en suite.
Step into the long hallway which is finished with oak laminate flooring and leads down into the stunning living room where the eye is immediately drawn to a large feature corner window looking out over Strangford Lough.
This generous room also has an attractive Belfast brick fireplace with reclaimed beam mantle and a large opening leads to the magnificent kitchen/living/dining room.
It is this room which elevates the property into the realms of luxury living.
Two walls of glass make the most of the beautiful setting and two large ceiling lanterns flood the kitchen area with natural light.
The units are country style hand painted solid wood with composite work surfaces.
A matching island is inset with a stainless steel sink and you also get a Quooker hot water tap and circular woodblock breakfast bar, integrated dishwasher and under counter fridge.
There is also a Rangemaster cooker with induction hobs with mantle.
This space opens to a spectacular dining and living space created in front of large walls of glass looking out on the gardens and the Lough.
There is also a walk in pantry with shelving.
A family room would also make a ground floor bedroom with a doorway leading to an adjoining shower room which could serve as an en suite.
The shower room is ultra modern with a large fully tiled shower area with glass panel and chrome shower fitting, a vanity unit with inset antique basin and mixer tap and a reproduction period style radiator with chrome heated towel rail. An added touch of luxury is electric under floor heating.
Upstairs and the spacious master bedroom has a beautiful feature corner window with stunning panoramic Lough views.
It has an extensive range of built in wardrobes and a decadent en suite with large tiled shower area, a sleek vanity unit with woodblock top and inset basin. It is finished with partly panelled walls and a reproduction style radiator. There is also electric underfloor heating.
Bedrooms two and three also share their own bathroom which is another luxury space with white panelled bath with tiled surround, a chrome shower with glass door and a lovely vanity unit with polished granite top and inset antique basin. The walls in here are also part panelled and there is another reproduction period style radiator and electric under floor heating.
Outside the space is also superb with a tarmac driveway leading from a private road.
The landscaped gardens looking out over the Lough are a delight and are well designed with patio areas, trees, shrubs and flower beds.
There is even a picnic area surrounded with trees which provide shelter without obscuring the stunning views across the Lough.
Strangford village is a short walk from this fine home and enjoys lovely restaurants along with shops and schools.
