Description of 127 Upper Mealough Road, Carryduff, Belfast

Nestling at the end of a private, if shared lane, this rather attractive detached bungalow with double garage set separately sits proud of undulating countryside with expansive views from the picturesque windows that were clearly designed and installed for that very purpose. An unique, rural setting yet with great convenience for commuting to South Belfast via shaws bridge and only a short drive from local amenities that Carryduff, as the nearest village, offers with an easy connection or drive to some leading schools. Built during the 1970’s with a certain style and character from that era, the bungalow enjoys a split floor level leading to what is a truly magnificent main reception, which together with most other rooms enjoys an extensive use of natural oak and maple strip flooring with moulded stained skirtings and flushed room door architraves, there is also an extensive use of natural stone to some feature walls at floor to ceiling height and an extensive use of wood wall panelling throughout. Traditionally constructed with external pebble dashed wall finish for easy maintenance and certainly generous in proportion throughout its 2,700 square feet (260 Sq M) with no wasted space the bungalow offers a naturally bright airy appeal thanks to the large window design and widely appealing layout. This is no ordinary property, but rather a thoughtfully designed and well constructed home for which a great eye to detail is evident and on the practical side extensive built in storage that is all too rare in quickly constructed, tightly packed and less thoughtful planned new homes today. Special features are numerous, two separate fireplaces on either side of a shared chimney breast feature stone wall, a vented blown hot air heating system fed from a very modern condensing oil fired heating boiler supplemented by a working AGA in the kitchen. We are confident that the large entertainment size reception rooms with adjoining sun room/conservatory coupled with FOUR excellent, well proportioned and equipped bedrooms (some with vanitory basins) will have wide appeal. The large, stand alone garage building, of circa 1,000 Sq Ft  has been designed and built so as not to encroach on those views while at the same time providing much needed storage space even for someone working from home. Externally the property offers excellent parking and turning with landscaped lawns and more mature shrub borders set neatly behind low level granite formed kerb lines with interspersed sections of lawn.
