A stylish veranda and open porch lead to an attractive entrance with a half glazed panel door with side lights. The hall is visually split with an outer reception area and an inner hall with staircase and built in storage. There is also a
separate built in linen press. This is a good space that lends itself to period furnishings, enhanced by the plaster cornice work and the original floor ceramics and panel doors.
A downstairs WC & wash hand basin facility is located off the rear hall.
11'9 X 20'4 (3.58m X 6.20m)
This is a spacious lounge and a comfortable family room with an attractive bay window providing views to the sea front and the prominent land mark of Fair Head beyond. The wood paneling to the bow window and the plaster
cornice work well with the restored wood flooring and a wood burner in a recessed fireplace with a beamed mantle.
9'10 X 13'5 (3.00m X 4.09m)
This is another stylish room with a splendid front aspect to capture the views. There is a decorative fireplace feature here and the exposed wood flooring and architectural themes from the lounge are also repeated here.
11'9 X 11'6 (3.58m X 3.51m)
A versatile room currently fitted as a fourth bedroom, but would be well suited as a TV room, play room or home office. An authentic oak and tile fireplace is the highlight here and there is an attractive wood laminate floor.
10'6 X 12'10 (3.20m X 3.91m)
A very traditional kitchen with some contemporary additions like the coloured sink inset and the modern wall tiling. The vintage ceramic floor tiles reappear here along with a wood strip ceiling. We have a good range of high and low level
units, with a range style cooker featuring a gas hob and electric oven. There is space for a dish washer and fridge/freezer. Family dining space.
9'10 X 8'3 (3.00m X 2.51m)
The utility is in the style of a "scullery" with Belfast sink and rustic mixer taps complementing the pine storage units. There is also space here for an extra fridge/freezer and other white goods.

Knocklayde. Attractive wood laminate floor finish and excellent under eaves storage.
15'9 X 8'10 (4.80m X 2.69m)
A double room full of character created by the valley and ridge roof line and the dormer window, which offers views to Knocklayde. There is great "nook & cranny" storage and wood flooring.
14'5 X 8'6 (4.39m X 2.59m)
The third bedroom is not just another double room but a room with a breath taking view to the coast. This is another character roof with valley and dormer roof lines and more "nook & cranny" storage. Wood laminate flooring.
There are two separate storage areas located off the first floor landing.
Garden & Exterior
The outside space here offers as much character as the interior. From the back door we enter an enclosed courtyard, with an L shaped configuration taking full advantage of the south western aspect. This courtyard area is
enclosed by an attractive row of traditional outbuildings (detailed below) and pedestrian gates to the driveway and garden.
The gardens to front and rear are for the most part in lawn with mixed border and railings to the front boundary and a mature hedge to the rear boundary. The rear garden is particularly private and sheltered from the sea
9'10 X 7'10 (3.00m X 2.39m)
The outbuildings are of a rustic single skin wall construction with a slate roof and they are functionally divided. This is a large boiler house with space for tools and materials.
A bit of a throwback but a useful facility for summer days in the garden.
9'10 X 7'10 (3.00m X 2.39m)
This is in the nature of a craft room or a small workshop and a great asset for
9'6 X 14'9 (2.90m X 4.50m)
A bit small compared with modern spec, but a great utility space and currently used as such. Power light and metal up and over door.
Outside lights and outside tap.
