Big and beautiful sums up this swish modern home in Belfast's popular Belmont area.

Covering a massive 6,000 sq ft this marvellous detached villa is believed to be one of the largest private properties currently on the market in the city.

While the space is a major attraction, it is by no means the only draw of this classy home which was built just seven years ago to a very precise standard.

Set back from the road it enjoys a great sense of privacy and straight away you get a feel for the splendour that waits behind its impressive solid wood double front doors.

Inside five of the possible seven bedrooms are located on the first floor and bathrooms/shower rooms are in abundance.

A designer kitchen stretches to over 600 sq ft and is an ideal focal point for modern family living. The open plan family and dining areas which adjoin it have bi-fold doors opening on to the back garden and patio area.

Any growing family will find more than enough rooms to escape to with a sitting room, dining room, family room, study, open plan kitchen/family/dining room, utility and cloakroom, master suite with dressing room and bathroom, six further bedrooms, two with en suites, a family bathroom, shower room and laundry room.

Like every room in this immense and immaculate house the reception hall is an impressively large space dominated by a gorgeous bespoke sweeping walnut staircase. This room also features a contemporary wall mounted gas fire and ceramic tiled floor and is wired for sound.

The downstairs WC is a chic space with modern floating walnut vanity unit with a Duravit wash hand basin and matching low flush WC.

An elegant sitting room with polished walnut floor and gorgeous modern marble fireplace with cast iron inset is an ideal space for receiving guests.

A formal dining room is also finished with a solid walnut floor and ceiling speakers, plus contemporary wall-mounted gas fire. Double doors with glass panels opening to the hallway are another lovely feature.

The first of two family rooms is currently being used as a playroom and has a wall-mounted TV plus French doors opening to a patio.

A superb study is fitted with a range of attractive built in furniture including shelves, a desk and drawers - a home office fit for any professional.

Right at the heart of this home, the biggest space has been reserved for family living with a spectacular open plan kitchen/living/dining room which is framed at one end with glass walls and bi-folding doors opening to the back garden.

The luxury handmade kitchen from "Design Yard" features a sleek circular breakfast bar topped with granite and has every gadget and appliance you could dream of.

Included are two fridges, two ovens with warming drawers, a combi microwave oven, coffee machine, dishwasher, five ring hob and under hung twin sinks.

The room opens to a spacious living and dining area where there is an intercom phone for the entrance gates and a wall mounted gas fire with wiring above for a flat screen TV.

This room is also fitted with ceiling speakers and wiring for a home theatre system.

And as if there isn't everything you need in the kitchen, you can also enjoy the added bonus of a well fitted utility room fitted with a range of units and granite work surfaces with two freezers and two wine coolers

Upstairs and the two landings have been designed as galleries keeping a consistent sense of quality and flow throughout the house.

The first floor landing features a great utilities cupboard and walk in storage while the second has a laundry room and sitting area.

Every room on these two floors is finished to the highest standard and the bathrooms are all showcase style with designer sanitary ware and tiling.

As you would expect the master suite is the last word in luxury. The sleeping area features French doors opening onto a balcony and a door leads to a wonderfully fitted walk in dressing room.

The en suite is pure opulence. A free standing Kohler bath faces a flat screen TV where you can imagine relaxing and escaping from the stress of a long day.

This incredibly spacious room also features a long bespoke solid wood vanity unit with twin basins and a Matki shower enclosure with rain head and telephone hand showers.

Designer porcelain tiles enhance the feeling of luxury and relaxation.

Outside you enter the property through electric sliding gates with an intercom system onto a paved driveway with parking and turning area.

There is a double garage with twin roller electric doors and a large enclosed rear garden. This private space has been designed for outdoor family living with speakers and wiring for a hot tub.

The lawn is bordered by mature trees and plants and there is a paved patio of for outdoor dining.

The location of this special home is also ideal for family living as it is within the catchment area of some of the province's leading schools and close to the many shops, amenities and eateries of both Belmont and Ballyhackamore Villages.
