This imposing detached 4 bedroom family home occupies a mature, established setting within the popular Galgorm area of Ballymena and exudes a level of quality and finish of particular note internally which is unique and of a standard seldom seen. With well stocked and neatly maintained gardens, a walled and gated entrance and sunken patio to the front, the setting perfectly compliments the interior that awaits. A fine entrance hall completed with raised fielded oak panelling which is extended to the first floor and landing provides an impressive reception which is further extenuated with a beautiful oak staircase designed and replicating the main staircase which featured in the owner’s previous house. A fully tiled cloaks is accessed off this area and the formal living areas which include a spacious lounge, dining room and separate family room. A Hayburn fitted kitchen detailed with dovetail joints, castellated cornicing and a range of fitted cabinetry carries the level of presentation through which is married with further oak panelling and an archway leading to the sunroom positioned to the rear of the property. In addition, a well-designed utility room provides further scope with a selection of fully fitted matching cabinetry. This in turn gives internal access to the integral garage.

The first floor encompasses a separate bathroom with spa jet and steam shower cubicle, 4 bedrooms with the master bedroom suite including an open dressing area and twin built in wardrobes. The 3 additional bedrooms are generous in size and all benefit from built in wardrobes providing an excellent level of storage.

Perhaps one of the most striking features within this superb property is the study which is fully fitted with a range of book cases, cupboards and two desks creating a pleasant and inviting environment to both enjoy and work within.

Features such as cornicing, radiator cabinets, solid oak doors, deep skirtings and hockey stick trim architraves combined with a comprehensive electrical specification complete the overall level that this outstanding home has been finished to.

Externally, an asphalt driveway leads to the rear which is private and includes a tiered patio.

Overlooking Galgorm Castle Golf Course, the property is conveniently situated to Galgorm village and amenities, main road links, schools and the town centre.

We highly recommend internal inspection of this excellent home to fully appreciate its quality and accommodation.
