This superb stone home was converted from an old coach house into a bright and contemporary home.

It is one of just five homes sharing a quiet cul de sac location close to the centre of the historic village of Hillsborough.

As you would expect the interior is quirky with lots of unique character and sliding sash windows throughout enhance the period beauty of the property.

The reception hall serves as a dining room and opens up into a living area.

There is a separate lounge, a great kitchen, three bedrooms, master with en suite shower room, a ground floor cloakroom and a family bathroom.

The property is within walking distance of Hillsborough village centre and close to the M1 at Sprucefield.

From the outside with its old stone walls and pretty planting, the property makes a superb first impression.

You enter through an arched doorway with side lights into the bright and open reception/dining hall/living room.

Bespoke built in book shelves are a real feature of this large room which is finished with ceramic flooring.

Just off this open plan space is a striking lounge with solid walnut flooring and Adams style limestone fireplace with granite hearth. There are part wood panelled walls and a wood panelled ceiling and more attractive built in bookcases.

The kitchen is right up to date in white with granite work surfaces and matching splash back. It comes with a Neff four ring hob and matching electric oven, integrated fridge freezer, dishwasher and heating drawer. A wood panelled ceiling makes a lovely feature.

The cloakroom has been cleverly concealed behind book shelves in the reception hall and features a lovely white vanity unit with marble surround with build in storage and mirror.

There is more ceiling panelling upstairs on the landing and in all three bedrooms.

An exposed stone wall adds charm to the master suite which comes with a luxurious fully tiled en suite with shower.

Bedroom two is fitted with an extensive range of bespoke built in robes.

The family bathroom is modern with a tiled panelled bath, pedestal wash hand basin and part tiled walls and tiled floor.

The house comes with parking for two cars and a small paved sitting area to the front and another sheltered paved patio to the side with garden stores.
