Property of the Week – 21 The Chase, Parkgate, Ballyclare


TWENTY FIRST CENTURY LIVING – Bright family home with designer edge.

If ever a home was designed for 21st century family living then this has to be it.

Open, bright and spacious with plenty of interesting design features, it is a marvellous family home.

The house stands proud in a quiet cul de sac within the popular Parkgate Development from where it enjoys pleasant views over the surrounding countryside.

Inside, the split level layout adds a sense of individuality to the design and the heart of this property is an impressive open plan kitchen, living, dining area which opens onto a beautiful landscaped patio at the back and a sun terrace to the front.

There are four bedrooms, two with en suite and a large games area and garage on the ground floor.

The property was built just eight years ago and incorporates plenty of mod cons, including a Beam Vacuum System, under-floor heating and solar panels to provide hot water.

It is impressive from the outside with its glass first floor balcony and dramatic double height glazing at the side.

A large solid wooden door opens into a hallway where the main feature is a solid oak open tread bespoke staircase. Just off the hallway is the first bedroom, finished with a wooden floor and en suite shower room.

There is a utility room here as well and access to the garage and a large games room.

Unusually you climb the stairs to access the main living areas.

On the landing a lovely glazed door opens into a magnificent kitchen/dining/living room which is as high as it is wide and long, with a dramatic vaulted ceiling.

A circular island and breakfast bar neatly defines the kitchen area which is fitted out with a mixture of high gloss white and contrasting oak units which are cleverly fitted flush into the wall.

Corian work surfaces add a rich finish and there is a six-ring gas hob, electric oven, combination microwave and oven with warming drawer, integrated fridge/ freezer and dishwasher.

Double glass doors, which open onto the garden, cast light across the kitchen work area.

At the opposite end of the room is a real designer space for lounging where natural light is plentiful thanks to glazed roof lights, double height windows flanking a huge chimney breast and a wall of glass opening onto a sun terrace.

The bedrooms have each been beautifully styled and finished.

The first comes with a superb en suite and is fitted with wall-to wall robes and finished with a wooden floor.

The adjoining shower room has a sleek vanity unit, bidet and walkin shower cubicle with modern feature tiling.

The remaining two bedrooms are also finished with wooden floors.

The family bathroom has been kept stylish and contemporary with a free-standing roll-top bath on chunky feature chrome feet, pedestal wash hand basin and fully tiled shower cubicle.

Outside the main living area is a delightful back garden which is ideal for family summer dining and entertaining with a patio surrounded by well planted greenery.

The front of the house offers a huge driveway with parking again nicely softened with planting.

The development is well located a short drive from local shops, schools and the International Airport and just a 20 minute commute to Belfast City Centre.
