Watch: Video tour of former farmhouse with designer style in Kircubbin, Co Down
This former farmhouse has been reborn as an ultra contemporary country home with superb styling and luxury finishes at every turn. Stephanie Bell reports...
A dramatic renovation has transformed this period farmhouse into a stunning state-of-the-art contemporary home.
Every inch of this beautiful detached property has been reconfigured to maximise its picturesque rural setting and creating a luxury, designer interior.
Sitting on an exclusive private site it enjoys a superb location right in the heart of the Ards peninsula, just half a mile from Kircubbin Village and with a wonderful outlook over Strangford Lough with the Mourne Mountains on the horizon.
The immaculate accommodation is spread over two floors with a modernistic lounge, dining room, grand entrance hall, designer kitchen/dining room, three bedrooms, shower room and first floor entertainment space.
A private laneway leads to the house which is set within private grounds surrounded by a generous lawn featuring plants and shrubs, some of which were gifted by the historic Mount Stewart Estate.
Adjacent to a detached garage with a utility space, there is a raised decking area and space for an outdoor hot tub.
The property also offers scope for a further extension to the side subject to planning approval.
From the moment you step into the hallway, this beautiful home captivates with its stylish design features.
A custom made open tread staircase with walnut steps and glass panelling makes a dramatic statement in an otherwise minimalist hallway which is finished with polished porcelain tiled floor.
Feature LED lighting leads the way upstairs and along the hall a series of windows have been cut into the interior wall to create yet another wow factor.
These windows make a superb feature in the lounge which is another modern space, also finished with a porcelain tiled floor and featuring a contemporary floating remote controlled gas fire.
A formal dining room allows for entertaining and the kitchen is a luxurious space with high gloss units including a feature island topped with granite and a breakfast bar crafted from Italian oak.
The flooring is porcelain and double patio doors lead to the garden.
Also on the ground floor is a full tiled WC with floating vanity unit with granite top and porcelain square sink, a feature LED built in mirror and vertical chrome radiator.
Upstairs another wonderful space has been created in the first floor entertainment room which is surrounded by floor to ceiling glass windows with a wraparound balcony which looks out over glorious country views.
This room has a wood burner stove and is finished with American walnut flooring, feature LED lighting and a surround sound music system with wall mounted controls.
There are three bedrooms and a beautiful designer shower room with a floating vanity unit with square porcelain basin and a large shower all finished with contrasting feature tiling.
