32 Brighton Avenue enjoys a prime setting within this mature and settled development with open green spaces and treelined pavements. Accommodation extends to 281sqm/3,024sqft plus converted attic of 34sqm/366sqft. A corner position provides a generous garden to the front with parking for several cars and a delightful outlook overlooking open green space. Added to this a private, south west facing garden to the rear, it is without compromise. No. 32 has been extended and refurbished in 2008 under the direction of MosArt Architects, specialists in designing buildings that perform to the highest energy, comfort and health standards. In this project they have gone beyond their brief resulting in this impressive and imaginatively designed home enjoying a wonderful flow of accommodation designed with taste and flair and an enviable A3 Building Energy Rating. Presented in exceptional decorative order the property is classic contemporary in style with some tastefully applied design touches creating stylish and comfortable living spaces. A converted garage has made way for the bright and well-equipped kitchen and the addition of a family room and a converted attic (with shower and toilet) provides invaluable additional space.
On entering the property, you are immediately struck by the sense of light and space throughout. The flooring is a blend of softly polished oak floorboards and polished ceramic tiles creating uniformity and flow. Extensive use of shaker style glazed double doors, plantation shutters and neutral colours are used to maximum effect. An air-tight environment has been created without severity of compromise with the use of log stoves in two reception rooms with sealed glass doors adding further to the sense of warmth and comfort. It is a home that is ideal for entertaining with a seamless connection between the formal, informal and recreational areas. An eye for the practicalities of life is also catered for with Smart understairs storage, two dishwashing machines, a utility with two washing machines and two Miele heat pump dryers complete with a lazy Sheila for drying clothes indoors made efficient by the HRV system.
This is a home that has been refurbished to standards ahead of its time and still today competes with the best of the modern builds from a sustainability and energy efficiency viewpoint. In addition to the air-to-water heat pump, our client has taken a belt and braces approach with the addition of a wireless controlled gas condensing boiler. Added to this the property presents in excellent turn-key condition and is without doubt a home for the future.
Enjoying a generous site and ideally positioned overlooking open green space to the front No 32 has a large cobble-lock driveway providing parking for several cars. Complete with Ballylusk pebbles and well-stocked flower beds delineated by raised stone borders. Neatly clipped buxus hedging and a delightful array of specimen plants to the front of this superb home. The garden to the rear is laid out mainly in lawn for ease of maintenance. The sunroom steps down to the lawn with granite paviers. There is a buxus hedge delineating the perimeter of the garden with a mature wall of hedging as a backdrop. A private south west-facing orientation is the perfect cherry on top.
