This lovely bungalow has been extensively renovated in recent years and today is presented as a bright, modern family home which has been tastefully finished inside.

The house enjoys an enviable elevated position offering views across Seahill to Belfast Lough.

An outdoor terrace and good gardens are the perfect place to enjoy the peace and beauty of this location which is a short walk away from Seahill railway halt.

Martello Park is also close to the National Trust coastal path and bustling Holywood town centre is not far away,

Most of the main rooms inside offer glimpses of the sea and the current owners have transformed this bungalow into a stylish home with some very smart finishes.

The hand painted bespoke kitchen is new and it opens into a good dining and living space. There is also a lounge, a new family bathroom and three bedrooms.

The owners have made the most of the location and views by creating a lovely terrace patio at the front which looks out across Belfast Lough.

The terrace is accessed from the front door which opens onto a bright entrance hall.

The living room is a beautiful space with large double aspect windows looking out over the front and back gardens. The views are stunning.

This room is finished with oak laminate wooden flooring and a hole in the wall fireplace with brick recess and multi fuel stove.

The kitchen is right up to date with hand painted grey units with pewter fittings and Quartz effect work tops.

There is an integrated Bosch dishwasher, integrated Neff oven and five ring induction hob, integrated Neff high level combination microwave oven and a fridge/freezer. The kitchen opens into a generous family/dining area.

It opens onto a large sun drenched terrace at the back which is perfect for summer dining and entertaining.

Upstairs and two of the three bedrooms look out across Seahill to Belfast Lough and the Antrim coastline.

The bathroom has also been recently installed and is tastefully finished with a vanity unit, deep fill panelled bath, a chrome heated towel rail and illuminated mirror.

There is a built in shower cubicle and the room is fully tiled with a ceramic floor and uVPC panelled ceiling with LED recessed spotlighting.

This charming home comes with attractive, mature gardens.

At the back there is a large lawn and patio and at the front a tarmac driveway and garage, with plenty of parking and raised flowerbeds, plus that lovely front patio offering Lough views.
