Property Description

This wonderful detached family home is set on Seafront Road in Cultra with breathtaking views over Belfast Lough, the County Antrim hills and up towards Belfast Harbour.

The house is beautifully presented and decorated with an exceptionally high standard of fixtures and fittings. The accommodation in brief consists of a large reception hallway with built in cloakroom and WC. There are three spacious reception rooms with panoramic views to the front. The feature kitchen has a range of built-in units, designer appliances and an island unit. The kitchen opens to a casual dining / living area, and leads through double doors to the private rear raised patios and gardens.

There are five double bedrooms over the two floors, three with ensuite shower rooms and two further family bathrooms. There is a den / living room on the ground floor which is currently used as a bedroom, which has access to the rear private terraces. There is also a good sized study.

Outside this unique property there are professionally landscaped gardens set behind electric gates with an abundance of colourful flowerbeds, mature trees and a range of patios and terraces, which attract all day and evening sun.

There is a large integral garage with plenty of private parking and turning space to the front. The substantial raised rear lawns have views over Belfast Lough and the County Antrim hills.

With the Airport and Belfast City Centre less than 10 miles away, and Holywood town centre within a short walk, convenience is key. This is one of the many reasons why Cultra is the area most consistently in demand, and one of the most exclusive locations in the province.
