Watch: Tour of sophisticated seaside home on idyllic Antrim coast

Striking home offers sophisticated style and space with an idyllic location. Stephanie Bell reports.

It is hard to imagine anything more restful than tucking into a family meal in this magnificent coastal home.

Perched on the edge of the Antrim coast, the dining room is designed with a circular wall of glass capturing the wonderful views across the sea to Scotland.

It is indeed an idyllic setting with the sea on one side and a backdrop of the beautiful Glens of Antrim in the coastal town of Ballykelly, and all just a stone's throw from the beach.

The house itself is also really rather special with clean, stylish decor throughout creating a fresh, modern look with a hint of sophistication.

It is a spacious home with two reception rooms, kitchen/dining room, four bedrooms, master with en suite dressing room and shower room, a cloakroom and a family bathroom.

There is also a handy lower level which features another bedroom or study, a utility and double garage with potential for use as an annexe.

There is a further detached garage and the gardens are spacious with an array of mature trees and shrubs.

The house has solar panels which help keep energy costs down and there is also an option to purchase an adjacent field.

A sweeping driveway leads up to the property which has double entrance doors opening to a bright porch which in turn opens to a lovely hallway.

Brightness is a striking feature of the lounge which has a superb corner picture window looking out over the sea.

The pared down modern style in here includes a multi fuel burner set in a recess and a wall of expertly fitted bookcases.

There is another delightful living room also with a multi fuel stove, solid oak strip flooring and a hard wood double glazed patio door opening to the garden.

The kitchen is very special and is fitted with shaker style painted units with granite work surfaces.

It comfortably accommodates a casual seating area and flows into the stunning dining room with its curved glass wall looking out over the sea.

The kitchen is also a bright and looks out over the coast. It comes with a two-oven oil fired Aga cooker, a pull out larder unit, glazed display cabinets and a dishwasher.

Solid oak flooring runs from the kitchen into the dining room which as well as the circular wall of glass has double French doors opening to the garden.

There is an inner hallway with stairs leading down to the lower level.

The bedrooms are all bright and stylish and the master is very special with its separate dressing area where there is a range of built in wardrobes.

The en suite has a corner electric shower and feature floor and wall tiling.

The family bathroom is modern with a tiled bath, pedestal wash hand basin, large tiled double shower cubicle with rainforest and hand shower, plus a chrome heated towel rail.

There is also an attic room which has been floored and fitted with a radiator and window and a large partly floored roof space.

On the lower level the extensive accommodation continues with a cloakroom and a study with built in cupboard and sea views.

The integral garage has twin remote control doors and there is a utility room with slate floor, a sink and island unit with low level cupboards.

Outside the detached garage is 28 feet long and has large double doors.

The property sits on a spacious site and is approached by a sweeping driveway flanked by lawns and trees.

Delightful gardens to front, side and rear are in lawn with trees, shrubs, flowerbeds and paved sun patios.
