The Property
The Gables, built in the 1980's, is a stone under slate detached property located in a quiet and peaceful village location with fabulous countryside views. The property is of good size and well maintained and offers flexible accommodation over three floors, with the added benefit of scope for further development if required, subject to the necessary planning consents.

Steps lead to the partially glazed front door and entrance vestibule and onwards to the spacious reception hallway. Set within a central position, the hallway gives access to the main reception rooms, kitchen, downstairs cloakroom and WC and staircase to the upper and lower floors.

Double doors lead to the naturally bright and spacious sitting room, a welcoming room with a large picture window to enjoy the fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. It benefits from an open working fire with a decorative tiled insert and hearth with a wood surround. A single glazed door leads from the sitting room to the study/therapy room.

To the opposite side of the reception hallway is the kitchen and breakfast room. The kitchen offers dual aspect to the front and side along with bespoke maple wood wall and floor units with complementary granite work surfaces, sink and drainer. Integral appliances include a combination microwave oven, ceramic hob with extractor over and dual electric oven; there is plumbing for a dishwasher and ample space for a fridge freezer and table and chairs. Off the kitchen is the utility room with further storage solutions, a Belfast sink, plumbing for a washing machine and access to the garden.

The dining room, another room of good size enjoys views over the rear garden whilst a further reception room is currently used as a bedroom but could lend itself to a number of uses, such as a home office or children's playroom. There is access to the garden and one of the sun terraces. A useful downstairs WC is also located off the reception hallway.

To the upper floor the spacious landing area is light and bright, currently used as an office and leads to four good sized bedrooms. The master bedroom benefits from fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom comprising a walk-in shower, corner spa bath, twin wash-hand basins set within a vanity with an illuminated mirror over, heated towel rail and WC. The guest bedroom also benefits from an en-suite shower room, whilst two further bedrooms are served by the family bathroom. All of the upstairs bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.

A staircase from the reception hallway leads down to the basement and family room, a room of impressive size used as a relaxing TV room. An adjoining door leads to the bar and entertainment room, currently fitted with a full size bar and pool table. An access door from the family room leads to the integral garage which has an electric roller shutter door, power and light.

A block paved driveway with parking for several cars leads to the integral garage with electric door. The gardens are terraced to the front with perennial plantings, shrubs and trees. Steps lead up to the private rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn with a relaxing south-facing sun terrace to enjoy the fabulous views, a feature garden pond and established trees, shrubs and perennial plantings and a garden shed.
