With four double bedrooms and a great location, 1 Upper Malone Road ticks all of the right boxes
Location, space, opportunities to extend, plus city living close to areas of greenery — there aren’t many properties of this kind that come onto the market, making 1 Upper Malone Road very special.
This exceptionally attractive detached family home is located in a highly sought-after residential area in south Belfast.
Spanning 1,900 sq ft, it occupies a private corner site just off the Malone Road.
Family homes are high up in searches by prospective buyers, says Clare Greene, associate partner at Fetherston Clements Estate Agents.
“There is great demand for people seeking a forever family home to put their own stamp on,” she adds, “particularly in such a sought-after location.
“This property already benefits from spacious accommodation without necessarily needing to extend.”
Created with warmth and character in mind, the home offers spacious, comfortable family accommodation and retains many fine original features, such as a welcoming, oak-panelled entrance, stained-glass windows and bay windows in the formal reception rooms.
Upon entering, you’re greeted with a reception hall, and from there a cloakroom with a sink and WC.
The lounge features a fireplace with hardwood mantle, cast-iron inset, tiled surround and hearth. Cornicing adds an attractive look to the room.
The separate dining room also houses a fireplace and cornicing, the perfect place to enjoy Christmas dinner.
The tiled kitchen with terrazzo floor offers a range of high and low units, a worktop and a sink unit with a mixer tap, half-sink and drainer.
Spotlights add brightness and there’s plenty of space for a range of appliances.
To the rear hall, you’ll find further kitchen units and additional space for appliances, plus a worktop and extractor hood.
The rear porch lets the glow of winter light in through a skylight. There’s also a door to the garden.
Moving upstairs, it’s difficult not to be dazzled by the stained-glass window. You’ll also find a hatch to the roof space, plus a hot press.
On the first floor, there are four well-proportioned double bedrooms, perfect for family or festive guests, with the space of each allowing privacy and comfort throughout.
There’s a separate WC, while the family bathroom comes with a pedestal sink with single taps and a bath with thermostatic shower extension and a mixer tap.
Outside, there’s a garage and basement. Gardeners will appreciate the established greenery to the front, rear and sides, with shrubs, trees, flower beds and decked and paved areas.
The site lends itself perfectly to a rear extension, which is handy for potential purchasers who wish to increase the internal accommodation, subject to the necessary planning approvals.
The area is home to a range of amenities, including independent shops. Of course, access to excellent public transport is a given; the home is convenient to the city centre and the M1 motorway.
There are a selection of schools less than two miles away from the property, including Methodist College, Rathmore Grammar School and Victoria College.
Despite many opting to move out of the city thanks to the freedom that working from home has brought, for plenty of homeowners, living in Belfast remains important, say the property experts.
“Particularly for families who require easy access to the city centre, arterial routes, leading schools and local amenities,” explains Clare from Fetherston Clements.
“This property is also close to ample green spaces, such as the Lagan Towpath, prestigious golf clubs and Shaw’s Bridge. It really gives the best of both worlds.
“This property has wide-ranging appeal, but I feel that the superb location and spacious accommodation, spanning approximately 1,900 sq ft, will tick important boxes.
“This property has a lot of character and warmth to it which can fully be appreciated at a viewing.“
The detached home is available for offers over £475,000.
