Private Paradise – 1 Kildare Road, Bangor


SOULFUL SECLUSION – A prestigious home which has to be one of the best in North Down.

Located just off the prestigious Killaire Road, Carnalea and approached by a sweeping driveway, this exceptional property has to be one of North Down’s finest.

It enjoys an elevated site with incredible panoramic views over Belfast Lough towards Scotland on one side and the Antrim hills towards Belfast on the other.

Designed and built by the current owners, the house is nestled within a mature setting, enjoying considerable privacy and seclusion.

The location could not be more convenient for access to Bangor, Holywood and Belfast City Centre, leading schools and academic institutions, shops, parks, golf clubs and shopping facilities.

The grounds offer around three quarters of an acre of well-tended lawns, meticulously landscaped with many mature shrubs and trees offering a profusion of colour all year round.

The house itself is an elegant pile with 5,000 sq ft of well-proportioned accommodation complimented by many fine architectural features including high corniced ceilings, decorative ceiling roses, a magnificent staircase and ornate fireplaces.

The accommodation comprises a wonderful entrance hall with double height ceiling with stained glass window, a drawing room with attractive ornate wooden fireplace surround, dining room with direct access through to the large family kitchen/living/dining area, additional living room, utility room and cloakroom.

The first floor boasts five double bedrooms, four with en suites and a large family bathroom adjoining the fifth bedroom.

There are two further reception rooms currently used as a playroom and study on the lower ground floor and a large garden workshop/storage room.

The interior finishes throughout are of the highest quality and the hallway with its galleried landing, fireplace and carved staircase makes a spectacular first impression.

The open plan kitchen is the heart of family life with a beamed ceiling and large range style cooker.

You even have your own walk-in bar area with a wine cellar and a wonderful formal dining room is finished with solid oak parquet flooring and offers panoramic sea views.

The games room has French doors opening onto the gardens and all of the bathrooms are luxurious.

Electric entrance gates open to a driveway which leads to a parking area and large double garage with electric doors.

At the back of the property there is an extensive stone patio area for entertaining guests with great views over Belfast Lough.

As well as a profusion of colourful flower beds there is a vegetable patch and a greenhouse for those with green fingers.
