Tucked away in one of south Belfast’s best kept, least known, tree-lined avenues, this quintessential Victorian three storey, four bedroom, town house has been carefully modernised and extended by the current owners to provide an elegant family home full of period features and contemporary style.
Of particular note is the wonderfully crafted and proportioned kitchen/dining room, bathed in natural light from the feature roof-light over the single storey extension.
Original period features have been enhanced through thoughtful and considered improvements including the reinstatement of sliding sash windows to the front of the property.
The redesign of the first floor return has cleverly created a compact and very functional utility area, alongside two modern bathrooms.
Astute landscaping has provided a tranquil, south facing courtyard-style front garden which, combined with the trees bordering the street itself, offers the most pleasant of settings. It is hard to believe the bustling Ormeau Road is only a three minute walk away.
This is a property that requires serious attention from those seeking a stylish period property with the modern requirements of twenty-first century living.
