Offers around £750,000

The splendid coastal town of Donaghadee, nestled along the Ards Peninsula, was recently named as the best place to live in Northern Ireland. 

If ever there was a property to showcase the best of the best, Barn Hill would surely be the one.

Occupying an outstanding elevated site with stunning views of the Irish Sea, Donaghadee Sound, Copeland Islands and beyond, here is a rare opportunity to purchase arguably one of the finest homes in the area and a fine example of how to extend and modernise a home whilst retaining its character. 

Located off the highly prestigious and popular Warren Road, the property is conveniently positioned with straightforward access into Donaghadee’s town centre and its many amenities which include shops, cafes, restaurants, golf course, picturesque lighthouse and harbour. 

Finished to an exceptional standard throughout, there is little left to do but move your furniture in and enjoy.

This deceptively spacious property offers a wide range of different layouts to suit the needs of its home owners and undoubtedly centres around a magnificent large superb modern fitted kitchen with quartz worktops, extensive range of bespoke high and low level units, and range of integrated appliances - which includes wine cooler, built-in speaker system, feature vaulted ceiling and polished concrete breakfast bar. 

The kitchen is open plan to a fantastic casual dining/family area with Mazona wood burning stove and has double glazed sliding patio doors to balcony. 

There is also remote controlled mood lighting and eight Velux windows, some of which are remote control, giving additional natural light. 

A large living room is enhanced by an attractive marble fireplace, gas coal effect fire and double glazed sliding patio doors to an extensive terrace.

A dining room or home office features an extensive range of cabinetry to include shelving, cupboards, drawers and desk, while a second kitchen with solid wooden work surfaces is also a highlight.

The ground floor boasts a sitting room with the potential to be another bedroom or playroom, alongside two bedrooms and a bathroom with four piece white suite and under floor heating, including bath and separate built-in shower cubicle.

There is a stylish staircase with solid oak stairs, glass balustrading and wine rack to the lower level. 

The lower level consists of three further bedrooms including main bedroom with great views, en suite shower room and double glazed sliding patio door to large terrace which is partially covered. 

A spectacular viewing gallery with decking - which can be accessed from the kitchen, results in no less than five different areas to relax and enjoy the spectacular views

Outside does not disappoint either. Beautiful gardens and unrivalled features means all you have to do is sit back and enjoy.
