description

Occupying a private, elevated site with breathtaking views across Belfast Lough to the County Antrim shoreline, this magnificent residence, constructed c. 2006 is undoubtedly one of Northern Ireland's finest contemporary houses.

The property is located in the heart of the highly regarded Cultra / Craigavad area with the coastal path and beach within a minutes' walk providing coastal walks to both Holywood and Bangor. For the commuter, Belfast is within 15 minutes, Bangor 10 minutes, Holywood 5 minutes, Belfast City Airport 10 minutes, and Belfast International Airport 35 minutes.

Whilst the property has been designed to optimise the view from all principal rooms, it also enjoys an attractive wooded backdrop, and a sweeping driveway from the bottom of Glen Road to the pillared entrance with automated entrance gates.

Designed by RPP Architects, and winner of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Awards in 2007, the primary design consideration was to optimise views and natural light, and to bring as much of the outdoor space, indoors.

The accommodation which extends to 7,000 Sq Ft over 3 floors comprises a glazed reception hall with stairway leading to the upper ground floor and lower ground floor.

On the upper ground floor, there is an impressive 880 Sq Ft living space with a feature double height ceiling / gallery, and floor to ceiling glazing overlooking the mature gardens, woodland, pond, and Belfast Lough. This area provides the principal living and dining space with sliding doors leading to a covered terrace with a cantilevered upper level creating an attractive design feature.

The living / dining area leads to a magnificent contemporary kitchen with fitted Bulthaup units and Gaggenau appliances, with sliding doors leading to a private terrace area with extensive views, and an outdoor living room. A study / utility room, and rear cloakroom are also directly accessed off the kitchen.

There is also an attractive drawing room to the southern side of the house.

On the first floor, there are four bedrooms, all with private ensuite bathrooms, including a magnificent master bedroom suite with outstanding views across Belfast Lough, a dressing room, WC, and large contemporary bathroom.

On the lower ground floor, there is a spacious games room which could be readily adapted for use as a 5th bedroom / guest suite if required, plus a 3 car integral garage.

Whilst the emphasis has been on design throughout the house, this has also carried through to the exterior finishes and layout. The external finishes are a mix of zinc, treated hardwood, glass and granite and blend into the contrasting foliage and woodland combine to create a home of exceptional quality and style. There are secluded patio areas carefully positioned to maximise the views and sunlight at different times of the day.

All in all, the sale of this magnificent contemporary residence represents a unique opportunity to acquire one of Northern Ireland's finest private homes in a tranquil, highly regarded coastal setting.

Viewing is by private appointment and is highly recommended.
