Property: An unbeatable blend of countryside charm and convenience

Offers Around £475,000

Space, and an idyllic sense of seclusion, doesn’t always go hand-in-hand with amenities and commuting convenience.

Prospective buyers with their heart set on living in the country often have to sacrifice this romanticised 18th century notion in favour of the certainties of 21st century life - like getting to the office on time every morning and easy access to good schools as the days of reciting French for the governess before a turn in the garden with your parasol are long gone.

However this beautiful home, just off the Station Road at Upper Ballinderry, is an exception to the norm. Here enjoy tranquil country living that boasts a convenient location close to Moira, Lisburn, Craigavon, Belfast and of course, The International Airport. 

A most impressive and individual detached family home designed by Emily Warwick of Warwick Stewart Architects, much thought has gone into the layout, design and orientation of this home and viewing is thoroughly recommended to fully appreciate all that it offers.

It also benefits from there being no onward chain involved - perfect for those purchasers looking for a quick completion.

Located on Irwinstown Lane, enjoy well planned accommodation spanning approximately 3,500sqft.

Specially designed to capture the heat from the rising and setting sun, enjoy spaces flooded with warmth and natural light. Marvel at a spacious entrance/reception hall with oak spindled staircase leading to a feature glass gallery landing. The sitting room meanwhile features a large bay window with the property also boasting a truly unique dining room with a curved glass wall and impressive vaulted ceiling - a truly unexpected but show-stopping design feature. 

The family room features a hole in wall fireplace - the perfect spot from which to regale at the end of a busy day - while the contemporary oak fitted kitchen enjoys a concealed walk-in pantry and opens to a spectacular sun room with vaulted ceiling and a ceiling to floor window - some 4.1 metres. Here bask in the sunlight whilst enjoying beautiful views of your gardens and the lush local landscape.

Enjoying five bedrooms, the first can be conveniently found downstairs with its own en-suite. Furthermore there’s the rear hallway/ boot room, a utility room, a cloakroom, the four first floor bedrooms - two with feature balconies overlooking the gardens, two en-suite bedrooms and of course the, master bedroom with dressing room and family bathroom.

Enjoy ample parking space courtesy of a double integral garage with remote control operated door and the pleasant addition of a games room.

There’s also an array of high specification flourishes for fans of good design and aesthetic to enjoy. These include bespoke oak internal doors, an oil fired Stanley range style cooker, high and vaulted ceilings to many rooms helping to create a fantastic feeling of space, a built-in surround-sound system to lounge, dining, kitchen and family room, a security system and a built-in vacuum system.

This home has been designed using many energy efficient technologies and boasts a high B82 energy efficiency rating. It also offers advanced insulation, underfloor heating from a ground source heat pump, energy efficient high performance double glazing, a pressurised water system, insulated concrete floors to both upstairs and downstairs and a multi fuel stove to family room. Anyone viewing this home will fully appreciate these measures and benefit from the investments to experience an environmentally friendly and cost-effectively performing snug and spacious home.

Meanwhile outside this home comes with spacious grounds extending to approximately one acre in lawns. 

Early viewing is very highly recommended. For more information contact Locale Home Sales and Lettings today on 028 9261 6999 or go online at
