Through the keyhole at sumptuous Tullylish Co Down home


Bright, bold and beautiful sums up the superb interior and exterior of this wonderful Co Down family home.

There is no doubt the current owners possess a natural flair for interior design and this combined with an eye for quality has created a wonderfully welcoming and ultra stylish home.

The property has been extensively renovated in recent years with large black framed picture windows standing out against smooth white walls perfectly teamed with blonde solid wood floors giving an overall sense of brightness and space.

Designer touches are everywhere, adding another dimension to the overall sense of beauty and quality in this superb home.

It is a spacious property with the potential for five bedrooms, a large reception hall which has a delightful living area, a huge open plan kitchen/living/dining room, playroom, conservatory, family bathroom and two en suites.

With the spacious grounds is a one bedroom cottage which like the main house enjoys views over the River Bann and open countryside.

The house sits on an elevated site extending to approximately 1 3/4 acres with mature trees, a fabulous raised deck and plenty of play areas for the kids.

A double height glazed entrance provides an immediate wow factor even before you have entered this amazing home.

This black framed glazed entrance provides one of many features inside the stunning reception hall/living area.

A curved designer black and wooden staircase makes a real style statement but there is so much more to draw the eye in this vast space.

A broad L-shaped room, it winds round to a picture window where there is a beautiful feature wooden fireplace with open fire which reaches to the ceiling and offers a tranquil nook to relax in.

The space has a lovely solid strip wood floor and off it is a downstairs WC and store room.

A bright children’s play room can be accessed directly from the hall. This room is fitted with attractive wooden storage on one side and has French doors opening to the garden. It has its own en suite shower room so could easily make a ground floor fifth bedroom if needed.

The main heart of the house can be found in the superb and extra spacious kitchen/living/dining room. Unusually the kitchen is in the middle and so beautifully designed that it almost forms part of the furniture of the room with appliances set into sleek white wall and island units.

Double doors open onto a lovely raised deck and in the vast living area there is a multi fuel wood burning stove. Two sets of double doors keep the dining area bright and the whole room is tied together with more natural wood strip flooring.

A conservatory is the perfect place to enjoy the special location and views of this vast property.

The bedrooms all have the tasteful contemporary finish of the living areas and one of two en suites is tucked behind a feature curved wall.

The main family bathroom is a statement in style. A huge room it has three windows and a modern freestanding bath set on a wooden plinth, plus a chic wall hung modern vanity unit with sink.

Outside the property is just as impressive. Electric gates open onto the driveway and lead to a double garage and parking forecourt.

Mature trees surround the expansive grounds and circular steps lead to every child’s dream tree house which is designed like an old fort. The large raised deck which is partially sheltered is the perfect entertainment spot and a great place to enjoy the rugged countryside and gardens.

The cottage set within the grounds is a quaint building which would be perfect as an annex or granny flat with a living room, kitchen/dining room and bedroom with en suite.
