To say that this property has kerb appeal is a little bit of an understatement. The rustic charm of it’s façade, using an attractive combination of brick, stone and coloured dash; the tidy well bounded lawn; the spacious and pristine drive way; and the impressive double garage in the background, do not tell the whole story here. The classic chalet design with velux and gable windows lighting the first floor accommodation and the splendid single story return at the rear, housing a stunning social hub, with sets of bi-fold doors impacting on the relative inside outside dynamic, suggests that internal inspection here is essential. The interior design, quality of finish, high tech specification and exceptional site characteristics, combine to make this a prestige property. Located in an attractive, but not remote rural location only three miles from Ballymoney town centre and only a five minute drive from the dual carriageway, this is a very commuter friendly property, with Belfast, Derry and the International airport all within a fifty minute drive.

The front entrance to the property is set in an arched stone surround, housing double composite doors which open to an impressive reception hall with a vaulted ceiling and a stunning first floor gallery. There is a distinct wow factor on entering and the combination of glass, steel and ceramic finishes in this area gives a very modern, contemporary ambience. This is further enhanced by the clever and thoughtful combination of spotlighting and natural lighting giving a bright airy and welcoming feel to the reception area. The solid engineered and part glazed “walnut” interior doors and satin chrome wall switches are themed throughout the accommodation.
The extended hallway accommodates a series of built in “stores” and essential space that is often neglected in contemporary design. Here we have dedicated accommodation for the switch gear, the hot water system and the cctv control.

The room is functionally divided by it’s uses, which comprise a comfortable casual seating area, a dining area and the superb kitchen area which is the central feature here, with s superb island facility providing additional seating and fronting the open aspect provided by the bi-fold doors. Here we have another vaulted ceiling which very much contributes to the “wow factor” and the spot lighting, satin chrome controls, and ceramic flooring are themes carried throughout the accommodation. The kitchen itself is solid framed and hand painted in a contemporary ivory and midnight blue finish and the island features a superb marble work top which incorporates an induction hob with downdraft extractor system. There is a comprehensive range of high and low level storage units with integrated dishwasher, fridge, freezer, twin eye level self cleaning fan ovens and separate microwave oven and drinks cooler in the central island.
