Property: Why this barn conversion is a lesson in character and class

Beulah-Anne Sinton

Fancy your own Grand Design style property, without all the toil and tears, leaving you more time for say, a round or two of tennis?

It’s game, set and match with this beautiful converted stone barn in Dunadry, Co Antrim which has all the hallmarks of a property that will undoubtedly appeal to fans of something truly original that will endure for generations to come. Approached by a mature tree lined avenue, this impressive four bedroom family home offers the ultimate in family countryside living. And converted to an exacting standard by the current owners, no expense has been spared to create a home of considerable character and charm. 

The elegant internal accommodation is perfectly complemented externally by a range of loose boxes, full size tennis courts and mature gardens. All perfectly in keeping with Co Antrim’s infamous rolling green countryside.

Featuring exquisite original stonework on the outside, the inside is sure to strike a chord with fans of contemporary design and aesthetics. The entrance hall is flooded with natural light, a common theme throughout this property, enjoying also low voltage lighting for added atmosphere. 

A generous lounge enjoys French doors to the garden that’s perfect for summer entertaining but for those long winter nights, there’s a hole in the wall style fireplace complete with a multi-fuel stove. 

On through to the dining room and the family room which both boast decadent but practical ceramic floors. 

The kitchen is a highly functional space featuring sublime granite worktops and a wonderful island unit. Two Keylight roof lights also mean that it will become a space you will love spending time in. A separate utility room offers added convenience and practicality. Downstairs there’s also a bedroom with its own French doors to the garden and a bathroom. 

The decadence and quality continues with an oak staircase to the first floor landing where you will also stumble upon three additional bedrooms (master with ensuite) and a shower room.

Outside, the lucky homeowner can enjoy a tree lined shared lane and stone driveway with ample parking. There are of course your tennis courts alongside a range of stables and storage sheds. The unparalleled sense of space continues with a detached garage and wonderful courtyard.

You are of course a mere hop and skip to Antrim, Lisburn, Belfast and of course The International Airport. 

Undoubtedly the combination of the unique setting and the quality, style and accommodation that is offered within, will render 12 Shanoguestown Road as one of the most distinctive homes in the local area. Early viewing is therefore an absolute must.
