Peaceful Living – Beautiful stone barn conversion in Portaferry

SITTING in an area of outstanding beauty in picturesque Portaferry this expertly converted stone barn blends perfectly with the natural splendour of its surroundings.

The setting is further enhanced by the prettiness of the acre of grounds which comes with the property which is planted in meadows, with lawns and winding pathways and a patio which allows you to sit and take in the beauty all around.

The house itself is quite spectacular and a modernist approach to the design has seen extensive use of beautiful materials such as stainless steel, tinted plate glass and engineered oak flooring which blend perfectly with the rugged charm of the traditional stone structure.

It is an environmentally friendly home with geo-thermal technology linked to underfloor heating and an Ecoforest ground source heat pump which is self regulating according to need.

You enter through a quaint part cedar clad/glass

 block entrance porch with oak flooring where glazed double doors open to the entrance hall. This leads into a magnificent double height lounge with vaulted ceiling and floating staircase with glass balustrade leading up to a mezzanine with glass balcony.

The flooring is natural oak and there is a beautiful French contemporary wood burning stove with glass hearth angled in one corner of the room.

French doors open onto the gardens. A separate utility room is also fitted with low level units and is plumbed for a washer/dryer.

The bathroom makes a real statement with feature wall tiling used to create a matching plinth for a circular bowl sink and also as a feature on the side of the biojet whirlpool bath.
