A WIDER VIEW
THE Obel tower — Ireland’s tallest building — changed the face of Belfast and signalled a new beginning for the city when it was built in 2011.
Recently passing into new ownership, it has had a £ 2m refurbishment to include its lobby, lifts, outside area and remaining apartments.
The first of these luxury new homes have just gone on the market, to a flurry of interest. Little wonder. Its wonderful location beside the river and within walking distance of the city centre are on their own a huge draw, but you also get unrivalled views and an incredibly high specification. You’d better move fast if you fancy living in this iconic tower.
And from an iconic building to an iconic address — on pages four and five we have a much-admired family home in the sought-after Malone area of Belfast.
A recent renovation has transformed what was already an attractive home into a high- end modern house designed for today’s lifestyle.
The property also enjoys a private, south-facing site.
On page 15 we have a superb historic home perfect for a first-time buyer. The former labourer’s cottage has also benefited from a refit and is beautifully presented inside.
