Video: Contemporary Portrush home on spectacular north coast

An ultra-contemporary home set in five acres of land on the spectacular north coast. Stephanie Bell reports...

This beautiful family home enjoys a superb location on one of Northern Ireland's most spectacular stretches of coastline.

The property in Portrush which is priced at just under £1 million looks out over Royal Portrush Golf Club, The Skerries and Donegal.

As well as the stunning views the house is surrounded by five acres of lush greenery which includes mature meadow land.

A tarmac driveway cuts through the meadow and leads up to an attractive modern home built in natural stone with a forecourt neatly designed and bordered by a wall in the same stone.

Inside is contemporary in finish and there are lots of well-styled spaces with a drawing room, dining hall, sun room, kitchen/living/dining room, utility, four bedrooms, two with en suites, and a family bathroom.

The ground floor is wired for a home entertainment system and has comfortable underfloor heating.

Upstairs and Junkers light oak flooring adds a warm and modern finish to the sleeping spaces.

Other fine finishes include walnut clad doors throughout and a mix of American oak and aluminium windows.

A circular entrance leads into a wonderful reception/dining hall.

This beautiful space is finished with a polished limestone floor. A glass brick wall adds a contemporary touch while two Bose ceiling speakers make this an ideal place to host guests.

There is a WC off the hallway and double doors open into the magnificent drawing room.

This is another tastefully finished room teaming with design features. A beamed ceiling frames the space and there are double aspect windows and a modern gas stove. Luxury finishes include a home cinema with four Bose surround sound wall speakers.

Prepare to be wowed as you step into the chic and bright kitchen/living/dining room where simple styling and clean lines create a contemporary upmarket feel.

The modern white kitchen units are from Robinsons Interiors.

Composite worktops and a tri-flow mixer tap are among the luxurious fittings which also include a Gaggenau cooking unit with ceramic hob, two gas rings and steam unit, a Miele warming drawer and integrated fridge.

A sleek island houses the oven; a waste bin and a stainless steel single bowl sink with mixer tap and waste disposal.

A Stanley multi-fuel stove is a nice touch in the living area and there are two Bose wall speakers.

This room leads into the beautiful ultra modern sun room with seamless glass walls and a vaulted ceiling. This is an all year round room with underfloor heating as well as air conditioning.

There is also a rear porch with another WC and a utility room with a range of built in units and twin Belfast sinks.

Also on the ground floor is a bedroom suite with an exquisite en suite shower room featuring a Philippe Starck thermostatically controlled pressurised shower, low flush WC, bidet, heated towel rail and vanity unit with wash hand basin.

On the first floor there are another three bedrooms, one with a similarly sophisticated en suite.

The family bathroom is also luxuriously fitted with Villeroy and Boch furniture, including a superb freestanding bath with mixer tap and telephone hand shower attachment, low flush WC, heated towel rail and a large corner shower.

Outside this house has much to offer with beautifully landscaped gardens which include a sandstone patio offering magnificent views over the golf course and the sea. There are also extensive 15 year old natural meadow areas which are a haven for wildlife.
