A stunning detached property with magnificent views over Monk Stray and a hidden private lake.
This handsome house has undergone a stunning and sympathetic refurbishment with great attention to detail and design, offering a superb balance of period features and contemporary touches. As well as being superbly presented, the property occupies a much desired position overlooking Monk Stray, with wonderful views to the rear over a private tree bordered lake.
The property is accessed at the front via a door with beautiful stained glass detailing into an entrance hallway. To the front elevation is the bay fronted lounge which is centered around an ornate feature fireplace. The hub of the home though is the magnificent open plan kitchen / dining / family room which spans the entire width of the house. Here you can enjoy a second sitting room with log burning stove and solid oak flooring. There is ample room also for a dining table and chairs. The bespoke kitchen is of an extremely high specification and boasts hand painted wooden units with marble work surfaces. The centerpiece of this impressive kitchen is a large solid oak unit which frames the cooker and gas hob. Features include a Belfast sink, a range of fitted appliances and space for an American style fridge/freezer. This wonderful and sociable space is bathed in natural light from a sky lantern as well as twin French doors. There is also a useful courtesy door opening to the integral garage. The entrance hallway has a WC, as well as a handy under stairs cupboard, completing the ground floor accommodation.
To the first floor are three double bedrooms of generous proportions including one with an en-suite shower room. The bay fronted bedroom to the front has commanding views over Monk Stray and boasts stripped and stained hardwood floors with the other bedrooms recently carpeted. The family bathroom suite is stunning and blends the contemporary with a period style and includes shower, roll top bath, WC and sink.
Externally the frontage offers off street parking for two vehicles and leads to a single garage offering a third space if required. To the rear is a patio seating area in addition to a lawned garden with planted borders. Beyond the garden are magnificent views onto the private lake.
