Featured Property: A Class Apart


The black windows and white rendered exterior of this striking home reflect the style of the interior, where every room is finished in sleek monochrome with bright pops of colour.

If you get it right, there is nothing quite as chic as black and white and in this stylish home the owners have pulled it off with great panache.

It is a look that works perfectly with the contemporary architectural features which also abound within the interior of the property built in 2008 by its current owners.

It enjoys a private setting, tucked away in a quiet corner of Tweskard Park, with gardens backing onto Massey Avenue.

All 4,500 sq ft of the house has been lovingly styled with lots of luxury touches and special features.

The hallway with its double height ceiling and gallery landing is the first indication of the considered design which gives this house its unique and contemporary character.

Double doors – another special touch – lead from the hallway to a spacious lounge while a second set open into the bespoke high-gloss black kitchen.

This is complemented by a large dining area with a feature glass balustrade, along with another living room enhanced by natural light with its south facing aspect and large patio doors.

The airy, bright and spacious accommodation continues on the first floor with a large master suite, including a dressing room, en-suite with walk in double shower, and access to a private roof terrace.

A further three double bedrooms, one with en suite, and a luxury bathroom with a free-standing feature bath completes this floor and leads to the second floor, where bedroom five can be found along with a study/gym or sixth bedroom if required.

The house is a delight. The clean contemporary black and white styling starts in the hallway and continues into the contemporary living room, a modern but cosy space with a feature hole in the wall fireplace with honed granite hearth, piped for a gas fire.

The bespoke kitchen is show house standard with Opus high-gloss black units complimented by stainless steel appliances. There is a fridge/freezer, Britannia range cooker with six ring gas hob, plus a Neff combi oven. The central island is finished with African Black granite worktops and pop up power points for added luxury.

A glass balustrade runs along the length of the room overlooking a living area below, keeping the whole room bright and open plan.

There are also sliding doors which open to a patio.

Steps lead down into another beautiful living space with large glass windows framed in black including sliding patio doors. Another fireplace with honed granite hearth completes the modern look in here.

There is also a designer cloakroom with mosaic tiled floor and a well-equipped utility room fitted with Mezzo white high gloss units.

The bedrooms are all luxuriously fitted out and the master is simply stunning, with a brilliant walk-in dressing room and a glass sliding door opening onto a roof terrace with glass balustrade. The en suite shower room features a large walk-in shower/wet room with twin rain dance shower units in matching chrome and a feature glass tiled floor. Even the large table top sink has a waterfall mixer tap

Bedroom two enjoys similar luxury in its en suite and the family bathroom is also top notch, with a free standing bath and corner walk-in shower cubicle.

The fifth bedroom and gym enjoy great space on the second floor

Outside, remote control gates open onto a driveway leading to parking area surrounded by flower beds, mature trees and shrubs. There is a large feature patio which encases the width of the property and which is edged with a glass and chrome balustrade with steps leading down to a lawn. The garden also features a tiered deck area housing vegetables and herbs.
