Seldom do you get the combined benefits of a new bespoke build and a mature landscaped site, but “Chestnut House” offers it all. A creatively designed and highly specified 4/5 bedroom chalet bungalow, incorporating the latest in contemporary design technology, quality materials and modern building methods. The interior design embraces several strong themes that are diligently incorporated throughout the property. This is a superb family home on a spacious site, that features the original tree line frontage, adding maturity and interest. Located in the heart of the North Antrim countryside in close proximity to the famed “Dark Hedges” and less than 10 miles from the Causeway Coast, with it’s golden beaches, world class golfing and historical antiquities, this property has to be viewed to be appreciated. A property that will only be appreciated on internal inspection.

Reception Hall 11’2” x 12’9”
The desire to maximise the natural light flowing through the accommodation is core to the design of the property. The entrance hall with it’s vaulted ceiling featuring an imposing roof light and a sharp composite entrance door with twin unencumbered side lights, illuminates the reception. The combination of a natural brick feature wall with cool ceramic floor tiling enhances the overall effect.
Located off the main reception hall, we have a switch room and store, housing the hot water cylinder and integrated vacuum system. A cloakroom with rustic wood and tile elements, provides the essential wc and wash hand basin facility.
Lounge 17’0” x 16’0”
As you move from the hall to the open plan, split level lounge/dining/kitchen area, there is a distinct wow factor. Stepping down into the lounge with it’s rustic brick fireplace featuring a beamed mantle and wood burning stove, the vaulted ceiling with it’s exposed trusses overhead and the full length windows flanking the fireplace, reflects in the tiled floor theme running through the accommodation, where we have thermostatically zone controlled underfloor heating.
Dining Room 14’9* x 13’10”
Adjacent to and interacting with the lounge and kitchen areas, the formal dining area enjoys superb private aspects over the rear patio and garden, through another full length window with pivot door. The vaulted ceiling and a contemporary T&G feature wall, along with the themed floor tiling speaks to the quality of the design and the materials incorporated.
Kitchen 22’0” X 17’0”
The solid framed and hand painted kitchen units are presented in a very contemporary finish with a central island, framed by the superb arched window to the rear featuring bi-fold doors to the patio. The island itself features a light quartz work top with a downdraft extraction hob and a stainless steel sink inset incorporating waste disposal and “quooker” boil tap. The eye level “Neff” appliances comprise, fan oven, microwave, steamer and coffee maker. There is a “Liebherr”” full length integrated fridge with island freezer. The full range of high and low level units are complemented by an attractive dresser unit with display doors and a separate walk in shelved pantry with sink inset and traditional tile and timber finishes. The kitchen is a standalone feature of the accommodation, but together with the open plan lounge and dining areas, they create a stunning reception area.
Master Bedroom Ensuite 14’2” x 12’2”
This is a master suite with fully shelved walk in dressing room and a superb full bathroom ensuite, comprising tub bath, twin ceramic hand basins on a décor co-ordinated vanity unit and a superb walk through shower. Wall and floor tiling, sanitary, shower and bath fittings are to the highest specification. The bedroom itself features solid wood flooring and patio doors provide private aspects over the rear garden.
Bedroom 2 Ensuite 14’2” x 11’10”
A second ensuite bedroom of similar quality to the master suite in style and finish, but minus the tub bath and walk in dressing room. This bedroom also features solid wood flooring and a window aspect over the rear garden.
The main hallway opens into a second reception hall which accesses the ancillary areas on the ground floor and the first floor accommodation. The latter comprises a further two bedrooms and shower room.
Bedroom 3 15’9” x 12’8”
Double bedroom with gable window and enhanced electrics for computer area.
Bedroom 4 14’5” x 10’6”

Utility Room 12’5” x 7’6”
This whole area is fitted with a traditional “upstairs downstairs” type theme. The utility provides traditional high and low level storage with space for appliances, but also incorporates a wonderful fully fitted “ boot room” facility with a pedestrian door to garden.
Home Office 15’5” x 10’6”
Between the utility and garage we have a home office with a fully shelved wall. This area could be adapted to provide a fifth bedroom if required.
Double Garage 21’10” x 17’5”
Fitted with twin automatic roller doors and internal and external pedestrian doors. The latter leads to a useful covered area outside.
Garden & Exterior
The interaction of internal and external space promoted by the various glazed doors to the rear of the house leans heavily on a series of patio structures, which incorporate sleeper style retainers and rustic slate style paving stones. These provide fantastic recreation and social areas with the raised garden above sloping up to the tree line. The remaining garden areas are for the most part in lawn, but the superb mix of mature trees on the boundaries create a colorful and picturesque backdrop.
The site features ranch fencing to the front with splendid rustic brick gate posts housing the automatic driveway gates. The drive opens immediately to an extensive tarmac forecourt and a spacious parking area adjacent to the double garage. Shallow steps approach the front door in a front façade featuring a wonderful combination of stone and render finish and the superb window lines that impact so intrinsically on the interior design.
A combination of pillar and bulkhead lighting fixtures ensure a well illuminated exterior. Outside water tap.
