Property: A modern twist, but the same old class as Downview Park home hits the market

It’s commonly said that, when viewing a property, it can take just minutes to know whether you want to buy it - a decision informed by the sounds, feeling of space and the way the light falls.

Light and lighting have been key considerations throughout the contemporary interior at 20 Downview Park West in Belfast. The glazed entrance door breathes light into the spacious hall with dazzling effect - both it and the lounge boast a restored original parquet wood floor, a quality feature which is bang on current trends.

Elsewhere in this glorious and immaculate four-bedroom home, the newly installed open plan kitchen has been remodelled and extended to provide a superb living/dining space where the glass wall and sliding patio doors opens the room further out onto a decked entertaining area in the private rear garden.

A spacious guest bedroom suite opens off from the dining area.

Light spills in from the floor to ceiling windows to the front, mirrored by the patio doors that open out onto the rear garden from the cosy seating area within.

It is a tranquil garden room that offers an irresistible temptation to sink down, kick off your shoes and setting in for a quiet read, while admiring the view of trees, birds and the sky.

LED highlighted stairs to the first floor landing brings you to three further bedrooms and the main family bathroom.

All three bedrooms are doubles with the master bedroom boasting a floor to ceiling window and door to a Juliet style balcony overlooking the rear garden.

The newly refurbished bathroom is simply sumptuous, with a contemporary white suite that includes a bath fitted below a feature corner window and a double width built-in shower cubicle.

The current owner has optimised the potential of this detached property through a programme of modernisation which has resulted in a deliciously inviting home, one which will be coveted by many. It is an example of interior and exterior design at its most vital and intelligent.

Located in a most coveted position close to Belfast Castle, it’s recommended viewing to fully appreciate all this property has to offer.
