Property of the Week – 20 School Road, Millisle


MODERN BEAUTY – A spectacular home that keeps on giving.

CALM, bright and contemporary is the marvellous feel which has been achieved by the tasteful interior design of this beautiful home.

Outside it has a quaint cottage look while inside is quite stunning with quality finishes and individual design which gives it a real sense of style.

It’s a spacious family home with a fresh and inviting lounge, traditional handmade country style kitchen with living and dining areas, five bedrooms, master with en suite, family bathroom, snug area and utility room.

Every striking room is finished to the highest standard and then you come across an incredible orangery style sunroom extension, which is another extensive and charming space to entertain family and friends.

The houses sits on a generous two acre site with vast landscaped gardens as well as a self-contained art studio which could easily be used as living quarters for a visiting guest or elderly relative.

The location and setting also tick a lot of boxes and as well as being surrounded by beautiful countryside it is convenient to many parts of the province via the Bangor dual carriageway as well as being close to the seaside towns of Groomsport, Donaghadee and Bangor.

An entrance porch with quarry tiled floor opens into a reception hall which also serves as a bright open lounge.

The eye is immediately drawn to a stone feature fireplace with a railway sleeper and tiled hearth.

Sliding doors open to a rear patio. The open plan kitchen/living/ dining room is a spectacular space that is contemporary yet cosy.

Painted country style handcrafted cream units with granite work surfaces are pure quality and there is a gorgeous stand alone double feature larder cupboard.

A Belfast sink and Aga stove with mantle blend perfectly with the traditional style and there is an integrated fridge/freezer and four ring gas hob.

A multi fuel stove set in a white brick chimney breast is a lovely focal point in the living area.

The extension is a spectacular split level space with formal dining on the lower level and a stunning lounging area surrounded on all sides by large floor to ceiling picture windows finished with polished solid wood flooring.

The family bathroom is a large and luxurious space kitted out in modern sanitary ware including a free standing bath, a built in raised shower cubicle, contemporary vanity unit with circular bowl and chrome heated towel rail.

Feature border tiling adds a touch of class. The utility is well fitted out and leads to a superb snug which has a wall of attractive modern built in storage cupboards and a sliding door opening onto the garden.

All of the bedrooms have a contemporary look and the generous master bedroom features a range of built in storage and comes with a large en suite with double shower unit.

Bedroom two has a lovely natural stone feature wall. Outside this property just keeps on giving with delightful extensive gardens surrounded by mature trees and featuring numerous raised patio areas as well as a pond and a tranquil summer house.

There are two entrances with plenty of private parking and a garage and then of course the spacious self contained studio.

The studio comes with a kitchen, shower room and casual living space with wood burning stove which leads to the room currently being used as an artist’s studio.

There are also three store rooms and a gallery space.
