Luxurious Living

by Stephanie Bell

A WONDERFUL sense of opulence pervades the sumptuous interior of this luxury family home.

The Courtyard is an imposing stone-fronted detached house enjoying a pleasant semi rural location on the Dunadry Road.

The beauty of the locale is made even more appealing by its convenience - just a few minutes' drive from Templepatrick, 10 minutes from Belfast International Airport and 25 minutes from Belfast City Centre.

The house itself is huge and looks amazing from the outside.

Inside the space just keeps coming with five bedrooms and four reception rooms.

Every inch of this glorious home has been lavished with superb styling and well chosen fittings which give it a professional interior designer feel.

As well as the five beautiful bedrooms and four impressive reception rooms there is a study, a top quality kitchen with casual dining area, separate utility room, modern bathroom and also an en suite.

The bright hallway has been finished with a ceramic tiled floor and the staircase makes a great feature as it winds its way up to the first floor presenting the upstairs like a gallery-style landing.

The family room, with a very attractive sandstone fireplace and gas inset, is certainly cosy but also manages to be a stunner in the style stakes.

Large feature double doors separate the living and drawing rooms.

Again, these are two beautifully-styled rooms. A striking white marble fireplace is simply gorgeous in the living room and the drawing room is straight from a modern style book with its wonderfully laid out furnishings and wall of glass with patio doors opening to the back garden.

More double doors open to a lovely dining room and the study is an exquisite space with an attractive wooden bespoke fitted desk and wooden floor.

The sense of quality in this house continues into the kitchen which is fitted with solid wood units.

There is a country feel in here which is reinforced with a Range cooker and slate floor.

The kitchen also comes with a fridge/freezer and integrated dishwasher. A bright dining area sits in front of patio doors leading to the garden.

The utility room is also fitted with high and low units and is plumbed for a washing machine and there is a downstairs cloakroom with WC.

Even the landing in this house is an appealing space with a natural sitting area in front of a window and gallery-style banister making another feature. The bedrooms have all been carefully styled and the master features large built in mirror wardrobes and a stylish en suite with fully tiled shower enclosure.

Three of the remaining four bedrooms all have the added benefited of built-in mirrored sliding wardrobes - a great space saver and wonderful storage benefit.

There is a luxury modern edge to the bathroom which has crisp white tiled walls with black ceramic tiled bath panel and grey ceramic floor tiles.

The rooms has a separate shower enclosure and pedestal wash hand basin.

Outside, the house has been given every bit as much attention with landscaped gardens to the front and rear.

A sweeping brick driveway with a circular lawn and attractive planting at the front enhances the overall look of this attractive home.

The back of the house is a delight with another circular lawn with a stone and paved path cutting through it and leading to a raised deck patio.

There is also a detached garage and plenty of parking.
