Where to start with 49 Loughloughan Road outside Broughshane?

If this house hasn’t appeared on Grand Designs, then Kevin McCloud has missed a trick.

This detached barn conversion successfully merges modern with old, resulting in a quirky property that makes the most of its fabulous rural setting, including stunning views over Slemish.

The floor to ceiling windows in the living area mean the room is flooded with light and the glass balcony ensures undisturbed views over the countryside.

Outside there is a paved patio area, ideal for BBQ season, and helping to make this a wonderful home to entertain family and friends.

The three-bedroom property has been cleverly designed by RIBA Award-winning firm, McGarry-Moon Architects, and boasts dinky little alcoves and plenty of funky storage solutions.

There are vaulted ceilings, solid wooden flooring and don’t get us started on the pink bath!

For those looking for a property that will help them help the world, there’s an electric car charger, solar hot water system, heat recovery system and an electric heating system that can be controlled remotely, reducing the amount of time the heating is used unnecessarily.

There is also shared ownership of four acres of land which includes a grass paddock and wildflower meadow.

Seriously…what’s not to love?
