SHORESIDE SEDUCTION – Cultra home that has it all.
This wonderful home sitting on the shores of Belfast Lough at Cultra offers everything you could want for stylish, comfortable, modern family living.
The location is one of the most desirable in Northern Ireland and as well as views out to sea the secluded mature gardens make you feel that you are in your own wee hideaway.
The current owners have enjoyed the tranquillity and beauty of the setting as well as the convenience of the location on the edge of Holywood.
They really sum up the joy of this property: “This house has given all five of us immense pleasure in many different ways. Its ease of access to Belfast City allowed our teenage daughters freedom to travel in and out of town.
“Being 500 yards from miles of costal paths has given all of us the joy of the stunning outlook of the whole of Belfast Lough.
The little oasis where the house is situated allowed privacy but wonderful neighbors kept it social.
“Between the gardens, patios and large rooms, the house lent itself to the many parties which we have had such delight to host.
Winter, summer, spring and fall the gardens and our own river never stopped changing and each season is more beautiful than the last.”
The house itself is pretty spectacular and rather unusual with an ultra modern design to the front while the back has a Spanish village look.
Inside the split level accommodation which stretches to 5,500 square foot is also a combination of traditional and high end modern style.
There is a drawing room, dining room, conservatory, family room, brand new kitchen with dining area, a master suite with bathroom, sitting room and dressing room, a guest suite with dressing room and en suite bathroom, a further three double bedrooms, shower room and bathroom.
Large picture windows and generous solid wood flooring are special features of this home which also has two raised balconies which catch the sun both morning and afternoon.
The house is approached via a shared laneway which opens into a driveway with parking for up to five cars.
Glazed double doors with side and top lights open into a spacious entrance hall with 12 foot ceiling and a black and white tiled floor.
A staircase leads to a lower ground floor and also to the first floor.
Glazed double doors open into a beautiful soothing drawing room where a wall of arched windows look out over the garden.
This modern, calming space is finished with a solid mahogany floor and a Jotul double sided glass wood burning stove which also serves the dining room, another huge space with mahogany floor.
A black framed conservatory is the perfect space for lapping up the peace of the beautiful gardens while a cosy family room with built in book shelves and wood burning stove offers another relaxing sanctuary.
