Video tour of stunning Islandmagee home on the water's edge

This modern beauty sits right on the water's edge offering a tranquil and luxurious lifestyle. Stephanie Bell reports…

This substantial modern home sits right on the waterfront with stunning uninterrupted views across Larne Lough from almost every angle.

It has been recently renovated to a very high standard creating a contemporary and open interior extending to around 2500 sq ft where the emphasis throughout is on space and light.

It sits on a glorious site which has been enhanced by the beautiful landscaped gardens which allows the property to blend into its natural environment.

A huge bonus is an adjoined two bedroom cottage that currently offers a rental income but could be adapted for a number of uses. There are also stables, a garage and a workshop.

Inside the attention to detail is apparent in the many special features which have been incorporated into the design, such as zoned under floor heating areas via a ground source heat pump, solar panels for heating water and huge floor to ceiling windows to maximise the incredible views over the water.

There are four beautiful reception rooms, a luxury kitchen, four double bedrooms, an office, laundry room, utility, master with en suite shower room and dressing room, plus a lovely family bathroom and a ground floor cloakroom with WC.

You step into a porch with a feature window and off it is a stylish WC with a vanity suite.

The dining room is open and airy and has a fireplace with marble surround and granite hearth and stairs leading to the first floor.

The quality bespoke kitchen opens into a fabulous light filled lounge with huge floor to ceiling window on one side and French doors with side windows.

Light marble floor tiles further enhances the feeling of light and space and balances with the warmth from the rich solid wood kitchen units.

A sleek island unit with sink and breakfast bar separates the two spaces perfectly and all of the units are topped with granite.

There is a five ring gas Falcon range oven and an integrated Smeg fridge freezer with wine cooler.

A second lounge with a bespoke brick fireplace with multi fuel stove and solid walnut floor offers a cosy retreat on a cold winter's night.

The ground floor also has a large laundry room with a walnut floor and a range of units as well as a utility room, also fitted with units and finished with a marble floor and which doubles as a perfect boot room after walks along the shore.

An office with an attractive bespoke built in unit completes the extensive ground floor accommodation.

Upstairs and there is also a range of built in units offering great storage on the large landing with leads to four modern bedrooms.

The master is luxurious with a walk in dressing room and a contemporary shower room with vanity unit and fully tiled shower cubicle.

The family bathroom is also modern with a white corner bath, fully tiled shower cubicle, low flush WC and wash hand basin.

The adjoining cottage is just as well finished inside. A beautiful wooden ceiling with beams adds a cosy touch to the lounge which has an attractive modern fireplace with wood surround.

The kitchen/dining room offers a large range of units and comes with a Zanussi oven and hob with space for a fridge and plumbing for a washing machine.

There is also a modern bathroom and two bedrooms which are connected by a doorway.

The outside of the property offers around an acre of glorious grounds which reach down to the water's edge.

A large brick patio at the back of the house is the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the soothing vista.

Mature trees and plants add to the natural beauty and there is a paved driveway with parking for several vehicles.
