Belfast Telegraph - Propertynews - - Front Page - Stephanie Bell re­ports

THIS im­pos­ing pe­riod prop­erty in Malone has re­cently been ex­ten­sively ren­o­vated and skil­fully styled to give it a cool, con­tem­po­rary edge.

The new fin­ishes are of the best qual­ity mak­ing this a lux­u­ri­ous fam­ily home.

It sits on a gen­er­ous site in the highly sought af­ter, tree-lined Cam­bourne Park, and was de­signed in the 1930s by renowned Belfast ar­chi­tect Thomas Hous­ton, and built by Alexan­der Mcdow­ell.

Prop­er­ties of this era have be­come syn­ony­mous with high qual­ity con­struc­tion and gen­er­ous pro­por­tions, and this one is a prime ex­am­ple of both.

In­side, it of­fers a spa­cious lay­out suit­able for a num­ber of dif­fer­ent fam­ily re­quire­ments with ac­com­mo­da­tion which in­cludes a re­cep­tion hall, cloak­room with WC, draw­ing room, din­ing room, liv­ing room, kitchen with ca­sual din­ing area, util­ity room, five bed­rooms, two with en suites, and a fam­ily bath­room.

There is a real feel of pres­tige in­side and out where elec­tric gates open to a drive­way which cuts through gar­dens laid in lawns, to a large park­ing area.

At the back of the prop­erty there is a lovely paved pa­tio area which leads to a gen­er­ous gar­den, again with ex­ten­sive lawns which are bor­dered with ma­ture trees and shrubs.

Sit­ting in one of south Belfast’s most pop­u­lar neigh­bour­hoods it is also within range of ex­cel­lent schools and recre­ational ameni­ties.

An open en­trance porch leads into the hall­way where a nat­u­ral solid oak floor and match­ing oak ar­chi­traves give an im­me­di­ate sense of the rich fin­ishes which are found through­out this gor­geous home.

There is a cloak­room with a mod­ern white suite and fin­ished with de­signer Ge­berit tiled walls and floors just off the hall­way.

The draw­ing room is a huge, bright and open space with a real con­tem­po­rary vibe. Orig­i­nal fea­tures com­pli­ment the re­cent ren­o­va­tions — there’s a lovely cor­niced ceil­ing with the ad­di­tion of low volt­age light­ing, and there is also a re­cessed dog grate gas fire with gran­ite hearth.

A fam­ily snug is an­other stylish space with fab­u­lous cor­nic­ing and a hard­wood floor.

The heart of this el­e­gant fam­ily home is the show-stop­ping kitchen/liv­ing/din­ing room where ev­ery­one can con­gre­gate for eat­ing and re­lax­ing.

Again cre­ated with an eye for mod­ern style, black-framed fold­ing floor to ceil­ing doors are a great fea­ture open­ing onto the back pa­tio and flood­ing the din­ing area with light.

The liv­ing area has its own unique fea­ture with a hole in the wall fea­ture gas fire. The kitchen from Parks fea­tures con­tem­po­rary high gloss units with gran­ite work sur­faces and a full range of top ap­pli­ances in­clud­ing a Neff five-ring touch screen hob, in­te­grated oven, plate warmer, mi­crowave, Miele coffee ma­chine and dish washer.

There is a rear hall­way with ac­cess to the back gar­den, and a util­ity room which is fit­ted with low level units and a sink, and which is plumbed for a wash­ing ma­chine and tum­ble dryer.

Up­stairs and the bed­rooms all of­fer a won­der­ful sense of space and again the styling is up-tothe-minute.

The mas­ter comes with an in­dul­gent wet room with low flush WC and pedestal wash hand basin.

Two of the re­main­ing four bed­rooms are nicely fit­ted with van­ity units with wash hand basins and an­other has a newly in­stalled en suite shower room.

The fam­ily bath­room is an­other cut­ting-edge space with a fully tiled shower cu­bi­cle, a mod­ern van­ity unit with sink and a chrome heated towel rail.

The beau­ti­ful out­doors has been re­cently land­scaped and there is an at­tached gorge.
