This superior new build in Holywood will make a dream home for the lucky buyer.

Unmissable because of its striking turreted exterior and position overlooking Belfast Lough this property boasts an exceptional standard of finish inside and out.

Not only is the interior stylish but there is heaps of flexible space too with around 4500 sq ft set over three floors with six bedrooms, four bathrooms and four reception rooms.

This is a home designed for entertaining and modern family life with a top of the range kitchen with room for a 10 seater dining table as well as a spectacular circular dining room.

Designer touches are everywhere from the chic fit out of the many bathrooms to the solid wood floors and feature spiral and glass panelled staircases.

And on top of all this is its wonderful location on an elevated site offering views across Belfast Lough.

The sense of the contemporary quality finishes are immediate on stepping into the hallway with its Travertine marble tiled floor and gallery landing. The staircase is in solid wood with glass panelling and solid wood double doors lead into the downstairs rooms.

There is a stylish little cloakroom with WC also with Travertine marble tiled floor.

The same warm natural flooring has been carried through into the gorgeous circular dining room and the stunning and exceptionally spacious kitchen.

The designer German Pronorm high gloss white units with polished granite work surfaces are neatly fitted along two walls behind a large feature island.

Appliances are all hi-tech and you get a steam oven, combi oven and double oven with warming drawer, a built in dishwasher, fridge, freezer and hob with pop up extractor fan.

There is lots of space for a living area in here as well as a large dining area and glazed doors open onto a lovely sun room which in turn leads to the gardens.

There is a rear hall and fully fitted utility room, plus a spacious and bright drawing room with solid walnut floor and a bay window overlooking the front forecourt with views towards the Lough and Co Antrim Hills.

Travertine marble stairs lead to a long first floor landing with solid wood and glass balustrade.

At one end of the landing double glass doors open onto a balcony which offers great views out across the sea.

There is an amazing duplex bedroom which is circular with a spiral staircase leading to the upper level which would make a fantastic dressing room.

Two of the remaining six bedrooms have decadent en suites, including the master bedroom.

A solid walnut floor and double doors opening onto another balcony make the master bedroom special and no expense has been sparred in the en suite.

His n' hers ceramic wash hand basins sit side by side and there is a wet room style shower with drench shower head and telephone hand shower. It is all fully tiled and has a feature heated towel rail.

The family bathroom is just as luxurious with a stone tiled floor and ceiling and a wet room drench shower plus a deep fill bath with free standing taps.

A concealed staircase leads to the third floor where there are two more bedrooms, a shower room and a large playroom/study/home office.

Outside are lawns bordered by natural stone walls and a detached garage with electric door.
