Period features beautifully combine with modern finishes to create a stunning home in East Belfast. Stephanie Bell reports…
This handsome detached double fronted property has been beautifully styled inside with fine modern updates blending perfectly with ornate period detail.
It is a large and elegant home of 3400 sq ft sitting on a spacious corner site in a mature and highly desirable part of East Belfast.
There are four generous reception rooms, a gorgeous living/dining/kitchen, a utility, boot room and WC on the ground floor.
Over the first and second floors there are five double bedrooms, master with shower and dressing room and two further bathrooms.
The property has two entrances with a gated driveway to the front and remote electric gates to the side leading to secure parking and turning for three or more cars.
The entrance hall captures the charm of the property's origins with cornice ceiling, ceiling rose, picture rail and beautiful mosaic tiled floor.
An elegant drawing room opens into a bay window and has a double aspect creating a bright and airy feel. There is a decretive period slate fireplace with gas fire and corniced ceiling with decorative rose.
The living room is just as charming and also opens into a large bay with another side window and slate fireplace with open fire.
There is a cosy family room with built in shelving and cupboards also with a bay window and slate fireplace.
The reception space continues in the magnificent open plan kitchen/living/dining room - the hub of this beautiful home.
This delightful room is modern in design with a fantastic conservatory style dining area, hand build grey painted wooden shaker style kitchen and cosy lounge area.
There is a built in range style cooker and dishwasher, plus an island unit with granite worktops, sink and a breakfast bar.
Double doors open to a conservatory which houses a huge dining table and more double doors opening onto the gardens.
A back hallway leads to a well fitted utility room with granite worktops and a tall fridge freezer, washing machine and dryer which are included. There is also a boot room and a WC.
The extensive ground floor accommodation also includes a lovely study with built in storage and shelving.
There is a family bathroom with a panelled bath and corner shower cubicle and a shower room.
The bedrooms also have a lovely graceful feel and three feature bay windows and ornate period fireplaces.
The master comes with a large, decadent en suite with feature floor to ceiling vanity unit with his and her sinks and granite top, plus an indulgent deep fill Jacuzzi bath, bidet and shower.
Outside the large gardens have been just as well designed and cared for. The drive is laid in brick with a matching patio and mature trees and colourful flowerbeds surround a neat lawn.
There is also a secure yard with a dog run and two sheds, plus outdoor lights and power.
