Home Life

The Height of Class

From its delightful front porch you can sit and take in the wonderful views offered by elevated Glenmount which looks out over Crawfordsburn Country Park to Belfast Lough, the Co Antrim coastline and the Irish Sea.

On a good day you can even see Scotland and the pleasure offered by the delightful sheltered veranda will have already sold this house to many before they even glimpse the great beauty beyond its front door.

A distinguished, double fronted, traditional style home, the house is filled inside with attractive period features including deep moulded skirtings, architraves, cornices, picture rails and high ceilings.

Carefully restored, it has been freshly decorated and combines modern facilities without spoiling the inherent charm and atmosphere of the original house.

The cloakroom, bathroom and en suite shower room have all been replaced and a new solid Ash fitted kitchen with cream gas fired Redfyre range has been recently installed.

It is a perfect family home with four double bedrooms, three reception rooms and space for casual dining in the kitchen.

Surrounded by carefully maintained, screened gardens and within two minutes walk of the Olde Inn and Crawfordsburn Country Park as well as public transport, shops and the local schools this is a charming and immediately appealing family home.

When you do draw yourself away from that lovely little porch with its incredible views you step into the hallway to find one of the property's most striking features.

A beautiful, turned staircase leads to a minstrel gallery in what is a bright room with some wood panelling, solid wooden floor and corniced ceiling.

Double doors open to the drawing room. This elegant room which also has a fresh modern feel opens into a bay window and is superbly finished. Also a door opens to the veranda.

The family room also has a delightful bay window and another living room or formal dining room has a lovely cosy old world feel with exposed wooden beams and a wood burning stove with wooden mantel and tiled hearth.

Also on the ground floor is a play room or study.

The kitchen/dining room is a huge and modern space with an excellent range of solid wood Shaker style cupboards with a mixture of granite and solid wooden worktops. A door leads to the utility room.

Upstairs and the first landing return is home to a bedroom and the family bathroom. Again all newly installed, the bathroom is modern in styling with a panelled bath with mixer taps and telephone hand shower and tiled surround plus a pedestal wash hand basin with mixer taps.

On the first floor the front rooms have fantastic views of Belfast Lough. The master has a large bay window taking in the views and is a beautifully styled and finished room. It comes with a luxury en suite shower room.

Outside the house has a garage and private rear courtyard where there is a detached store which would make an ideal studio, playroom or home office. There is also parking for several cars.

The private gardens are in lawns and mostly overlook the sea views taking maximum benefit from the wonderful setting.
