Description of 1 Manse Gate, Manse Road, Carryduff

Enjoying a pleasant South facing sunny outlook, fronting Manse Road itself but from behind a walled boundary and accessed via a private gated entrance this is a superb, detached villa which was built to an exacting specification just a few years ago. It offers great family sized accommodation of circa 2,300 Sq Ft over two floors with a private concealed garage, excellent surrounding garden space and useful parking for a number of cars all of which competes more favourably with brand new homes being marketed today. Traditionally and carefully constructed using attractive facing brick elevations, a concrete tiled pitched roof and light Oak Upvc windows and continuous seamless aluminium guttering all for easy maintenance the emphasis in its design has been to create appealing family space which has generated not just excellent room sizes but a coupling of external garden and patio space to compliment. Readily identified, often admired when passing, this is an excellent opportunity to benefit from the many exciting features, characteristics and carefully chosen fixtures and fittings which this home incorporates all beautifully enhanced by the present owner’s careful choice of decoration and soft furnishing throughout. Special features throughout are numerous and include a luxury contemporary kitchen, Oak-stained moulded skirting and architrave wood, extensively tiled surfaces to ground floor, Oak shaker style internal room doors, recessed ceiling lighting plus five-amp wiring and USB sockets to some rooms, attractive limestone fireplace with steel inset surround, modern Phoenix gas fired central heating and instant water heating provision.
