Stand Out Quality – 38 Raffrey Road, Crossgar


FARMHOUSE STYLE – A splendid rural new build family home.

This newly built detached Irish farmhouse style home sits proud on a generous site of over an acre in a delightful rural location.

Large woods and surrounding farmlands offer beautiful rural views from every side and the recently landscaped grounds are laid in lawns with newly planted trees.

The house is just a short distance from Balloo Village and within easy reach of Strangford Lough with good commuter access to many local villages including Saintfield (5 miles), Ballygowan (4.7 miles) and Comber(7.3 miles). Belfast is only 35 minutes away.

Impressive entrance pillars with wrought iron estate fencing and double electric gates open onto a new sandstone gravel driveway leading up to the house where there is generous parking and a detached garage to the side.

Inside a good deal of thought has gone into the layout of the accommodation to suit a modern family and maximise natural light with many rooms enjoying multiple aspects.

From the large reception hall to the gracious lounge and formal dining room through to the open plan kitchen/dining/family room and into a large sunroom there is space aplenty for a growing family. Upstairs are four bedrooms and the house has three bathrooms.

The spec throughout is high with oak internal doors and quality flooring and a pressurised hot water system. An entrance porch leads into a spacious entrance hall with minstrel gallery landing finished with plaster cornicing and oak style wood laminate flooring.

There is a cloakroom with WC just off the hallway and a beautiful lounge. This bright room features French doors opening onto the garden and has a lovely limestone fireplace which is piped for gas.

The dining room is finished with oak strip wood laminate flooring and two windows flood it with natural light. There is also a rear hallway leading to a well equipped utility room.

No expense has been spared in the bright kitchen/living/dining room which is lined along two sides with large windows.

It is fitted with antique cream high and low level units with granite worktops and comes with an integrated fridge, Bosch dishwasher and double Belfast sink.

Nestled in a feature chimney recess with over mantle is a Rangemaster Classic 110 combination cooker with five ring induction hob, grill, double oven and plate warmer drawer, available through separate negotiation.

A matching island unit with granite work top comes with built in drawers, cupboards and a breakfast bar.

The family area has a chimney breast with cast iron multi-fuel stove and twin, glazed double doors open into a delightful sun room.

This lovely space also has French doors opening onto the garden and looks out onto farmland.

Upstairs and a bright minstrel gallery landing offers views to the front and leads first to a guest bedroom with a luxury en suite shower room.

Bedroom two and three each have a vanity unit and the master bedroom comes with a walk in wardrobe and an en suite shower room.

A beautiful modern bathroom is kitted out with a white suite featuring a freestanding bath with mixer taps and retractable hand shower, a dual flush close coupled WC, wall mounted wash hand basin with mixer taps and a fully tiled shower cubicle with Aqualisa thermostatic shower.

Outside there is a matching detached double garage with twin remote operated roller shutters as well as a store room with a cloakroom and WC.

Extensive gardens at the front garden are laid in lawn and the rear and side gardens feature paved patio areas, with flower beds and decorative gravel.
