For family suitability on valuable Rostrevor soil, you decide (STCC), with cul-de-sac positioning and a double brick, double level five-bedroom home worth filling or restyling minutes to favoured Rostrevor schools and Newton Shopping Centre.
But be warned, it's big.
From its slate and exposed brick entry, left finds the formal dining and right the sunken living/study; each zone can meet your lifestyle, and each offers passage to the kitchen, casual living or double garage.
Scope to improve indeed, with updates worth considering.
Such as the kitchen remodel – white cabinetry, engineered stone tops and a mobile island meets an Electrolux range, self-cleaning oven, LG dishwasher and an amazing walk-in pantry taking some time to fill…
Gloss floor tiles add timeless style and connectivity to the meals and family living zone where its bay window and gas fireplace makes it a spot to slide shoes off and relax.
Upstairs accommodates all five, light-gifted bedrooms (plus study) branch off from a carpeted landing where French doors meet a hills-facing balcony, and distant neighbours give you far off privacy.
Two rear bedrooms reserve balcony rights via sliding glass doors sharing more hills views and a backyard aspect, as the master suite owns sought-after parental space of a walk-through robe and a fully-tiled en suite - although it's dated, the layout works.
And you'll assign a designer to the family bathroom too, where a separate WC sits alongside a suite equipped with a corner spa, dual vanities and make up lights.
While outdoors is ready for further progress with a level block, brazier zone and a rear carport, LED lit and paved for entertaining.
But you'll relish this position. Point in any direction to respected schools such as Thorndon Park, St. Ignatius College or St. Josephs School, or a dash on foot finds Newton Village and some 30m to a city bound bus stop.
St. Georges Bakehouse or Rostrevor Pizzeria will become midweek staples, and a kid-friendly mix of local parks in the area extends your leg-stretching space even further in Rostrevor – make it your natural step up…
