Elmhurst is a wonderful, architect designed, detached brick fronted single storey four-bedroom family home that was built in approximately 1979. The grounds were once the orchard for Ellerslie House and Elmhurst occupies a large private plot extending to approximately 0.7 acre. This family home has been renovated throughout to a very high standard and now offers potential purchasers’ turnkey accommodation, tastefully decorated in a Scandinavian style. The accommodation is conveniently laid out over one level with a B1 energy rating, triple glazed windows, and an energy efficient heat exchange system. The property is approached via a long tree-lined private driveway accessed from the Ballybride Road and there is a cedar clad electric gate with a keypad and intercom system. To the front there is off street parking for several cars and a large garage to the side. Internally the accommodation extends to approximately 180sq.m. (1,938 sq.ft.) with Kährs wide oak engineered flooring throughout and comprises a welcoming dual aspect entrance hall with bespoke birch ply fitted storage and a workstation/home office. To the rear of the hallway there are steps down to a cosy family room overlooking the rear garden and central courtyard. There is an inner corridor with further fitted birch ply storage which provides excellent space for sporting equipment, shoes, and coats. To the end of the hallway there is a contemporary shower room and access into the garage where there is a climbing wall, gym and ample storage space. The kitchen/dining room is the focal point of the house, it is filled with natural light and is positioned to the centre. It is fitted with bespoke contemporary solid birch ply units, high end integrated appliances and a large central island with Dekton worktop overlooking the garden and courtyard. Off the kitchen there is a functional utility room with excellent storage and access out to the side of the property. The bedroom accommodation is located off the kitchen and there are four bedrooms, three of which overlook the garden and the master bedroom overlooks the courtyard, a contemporary family bathroom completes the internal accommodation. The house was recently renovated and now benefits from a B1 energy rating, all the glazing was replaced with smart forest green Alu composite triple glazed windows and the heating is provided by a heat pump system with underfloor heating throughout and nest heating controls. The grounds of Elmhurst are incredibly private and the garden wraps around the house. The property was designed in a clever U-shape with a central courtyard accessible from most of the rooms which results in light filled accommodation throughout.

To the side of this there is a gate which opens into a large lawned garden which measures approximately 24m in length, it benefits from a sunny northwesterly orientation.
