Video: Check out stunning house for sale in Belfast's Malone Park

Published 18/02/2016

Taking its name from the Italianate influence of its architecture, this wonderful Belfast home offers luxury all the way for its £2.5m price tag.

The exterior certainly impresses and inside is exquisite too.

But while certainly grand and beautiful, Verona is also a welcoming and comfortable home.

The house which dates back to 1897 is approached along a wide, straight avenue flanked by mature trees.

It is nestled among over half an acre of mature grounds with rolling lawns, lots of shrubs and trees and a private kitchen patio plus courtyard area.

The stunning exterior boasts a plethora of 19th century architectural features including a hipped roof, bracketed eaves, stucco quoins and canted bay windows with Tuscan columns flanking the door.

Inside there is a lovely mix of both formal and informal living areas which have been created through careful renovation and extension of the property.

There are three formal reception rooms and a music hall, a wonderful family living/dining room and kitchen, large utility room, five bedrooms, master with an en suite bathroom and dressing room, a shower room and a luxury family bathroom.

As you would expect, period features abound inside with original stained glass windows, ornate cornicing and grand fireplaces.

Modern touches include a Beam vacuum system, zoned central heating as well as some triple glazed windows for extra comfort.

Double front doors open onto an elegant entrance porch with ornate plasterwork which leads into a spacious and bright hallway with original staircase and access to a cloakroom with WC.

In the formal dining room, pride of place goes to a decorative carved mahogany fireplace with marble inset and there is a huge bay overlooking the garden.

An antique marble fireplace makes a statement in the elegant drawing room and a similar showstopper also graces the living room.

The hub of this home is very much the very relaxed open plan living/kitchen/dining room which is a large space flooded with natural light from an atrium roof unit and French doors opening onto an alfresco dining area.

Hand painted units in a quaint buttermilk shade contrast beautifully with black granite work surfaces and are expertly designed at one end of the room. There is a gorgeous black gas Aga range cooker, double French style sink, an American style fridge freezer and a dishwasher.

The spacious living and dining area makes this a lovely focal point for family living.

Off the kitchen is a well equipped utility room.

The five upstairs bedrooms are well catered for with bathing facilities, all finished to a very high standard.

The main family bathroom features a cast iron roll top bath as well as a fully tiled shower cubicle and there is a separate shower room with steam shower and spray jets.

The master bedroom is a luxurious suite on its own, it is complete with walk in dressing room and decadent en suite with a corner shower, bidet and corner bath.

Outside as well as the spacious and exquisite gardens there is a double garage and an outside WC.
