Living by the Lough

Resting in an idyllic setting, this stunning detached home oozes quality.

Recently renovated to a high standard, it sits in an acre of private grounds in an area of outstanding beauty with views over Strangford Lough.

The deceptively spacious family home offers 5000 sq ft which includes four reception rooms and five bedrooms.

One of the stand out features is a large balcony with glass balustrade which takes in the most beautiful Lough views.

White units are topped with granite work surfaces and there is a contrasting grey island unit with breakfast bar.

A polished marble floor adds a final touch of class to this beautiful space.

The bedrooms are all modern and bright. The master is rather special with a French door opening to the balcony. There is a dressing room and a luxury en-suite shower room with a sleek vanity unit featuring a rice bowl sink and a fully tiled shower cubicle and chrome heated towel rail.

Bedroom two also comes with a lovely en-suite and the family bathroom is a decadent, modern space with a vanity unit set on a marble plinth with rice bowl sink and a contemporary free-standing bath set on a raised platform.

There is also a walk-in shower cubicle and tasteful modern tiling.

On the lower ground floor there is a large bedroom or children’s playroom, another bedroom, shower room and utility with a range of high and low units and sink which leads directly into the double garage which houses a Beam vacuum cleaner.

22 Ballydorn Road games room

A surprise in here is a beautifully finished entertainment/games room with solid pine floor and recessed spotlights which easily houses a lounging area, TV and pool table. It has access to its own cloakroom.

Outside electric entrance gates lead to a stoned driveway with parking and turning space and there is further parking to the back of the house where the garage is.

The extensive grounds are immaculate with well-manicured lawns bordered by hedging with mature trees, including fruit trees.
