Sitting on the edge of picturesque estate Barnett’s Demesne, this charming detached chalet- style property oozes elegance and a relaxed yet refined style.
A deceptively spacious home, it boasts two bright reception rooms, an open plan living/kitchen/dining room, utility room, ground floor shower room, a bathroom and four bedrooms, master with en suite dressing room, and a balcony.
The Gate Lodge sits on a prominent private site surrounded by pretty gardens and with views over the park and playing fields. It offers a little oasis of calm just minutes from the city centre.
The tasteful interior has a traditional feel, but there is a contemporary edge to the neutral shades chosen for the walls throughout.
The bright and spacious drawing room extends to over 22 feet with cornicing and an ornate ceiling rose.
The family room is equally bright and has double doors opening to the showcase open plan kitchen/living/diner which is a vast space finished to a high specification.
A solid oak floor adds a cosy touch to the space along with a wood burning stove.
Cream shaker style kitchen units are topped with granite and there is a Belfast sink and an eight ring range cooker, plus integrated dishwasher. Double doors open to the living area.
A separate utility offers more storage units and has French doors opening to the gardens.
There is a downstairs wet room with fully tiled walls and floor.
Upstairs is just as quaint and bright with four bedrooms and a wonderful master suite.
A real feature in the master bedroom is French doors opening onto a balcony overlooking the gardens.
There is also an en suite dressing room with built-in wardrobes and a low flush WC and wash hand basin.
The main bathroom is an elegant space with a striking pink panelled bath and vanity unit.
Outside the property is accessed through electric gates which lead to a driveway and parking area.
The landscaped gardens which surround the house are in lawns with patio areas bordered by shrubs and flowerbeds.
