CHARMING PERIOD HOME IN BELMONT
This handsome home in East Belfast boasts many original features and offers lots of space for all the family. Stephanie Bell reports...
THIS charming detached period home was built in the 1930s for a wing commander in the RAF and still retains many original period features today.
It sits in one of East Belfast’s tree lined avenues on a large mature corner site within walking distance to a range of local primary and grammar schools.
It is a spacious home with many bespoke features and includes a kitchen/dining room, sun room, dining room, lounge, a family room, utility room, WC, shower room, four bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The property is easily maintained with surrounding lawns and a large driveway plus a lovely landscaped private back garden.
A covered entrance porch leads into the hallway which takes you right back to the origins of the house with its handsome oak wood panelled walls and stained glass windows.
The elegant drawing room opens into a bay window and is finished with a solid French oak floor. There is cornicing and a marble fireplace.
There is also a fireplace in the dining room and lovely French oak solid wooden floor. Double doors open to a large sun room with vaulted ceiling.
The family room is cosy with a cast iron fireplace and Acacia herringbone wooden flooring.
Painted tongue and grove panelled walls add interest to the quaint kitchen/dining room which is fitted with Chestnut units with solid teak work surfaces.
