Property Description

Quietly nestled away off Kensington Road in the sought after leafy Cherryvalley no. 104a is a unique property, unequivocal in design and carefully constructed using natural materials and maximising natural light throughout with minimal running costs in this truly outstanding contemporary 'low carbon home'.

Constructed by the present owners 6 years ago, the property is highly efficient, aesthetically pleasing on the eye yet is immensely practical and flexible in layout. This is a home that has been carefully planned to maximise the living experience with various internal living spaces combined with external retreats, an abundance of natural light and a superb amount of storage. Such is the layout and flexibility of this charming home it offers the ability to host large parties or more intricate and private dining functions depending on one's needs.

Constructed using an I beam timber frame, this is a super-insulated airtight house with all natural wood based components to the walls and hemp and lime render finish. The property also incorporates 4 solar panels with back up from two sealed high performance wood burning stoves for winter use feeding the underfloor heating and Rotex vessels. The extensive Argon filled double glazing and heat retaining glass ensure maximum daylight flows through the property and ventilation is via whole house Brookvent units achieving 83% heat recovery.

The property would also be suitable for those working from home as there is separate access to the ground floor home office and art studio above but these could easily be utilised in a number of ways as they are connected within the house. Approached by electronic gates the driveway leads down into a courtyard style front garden with covered parking and garaging under a sedum roof, mature trees, shrubs and specimen plants and various seating areas to enjoy. The side garden is landscaped and exceptionally private attracting the sun for most of the day and is ideally located off the kitchen/living/dining room making it ideal for outdoor entertaining.

Cherryvalley has long been a sought after suburb of East Belfast. The variety and quality of housing and the mature surrounding area with trees make a most desirable location. Highly convenient to Ballyhackamore, yet more peaceful and tranquil there are also superb public transport links to the city centre and beyond with a number of leading primary and secondary schools in the vicinity.
