Property: Waiting for the hammer to fall

14 December, 2017 01:00

Make a solid investment this Christmas with this bargain property at 668 Shore Road in Belfast and reap the rewards for many years to come.

It goes up for auction on Thursday December 21 and with a guide price of £115,000, represents a rare opportunity to acquire a detached family home in an area of vast appeal at an affordable price.

The four bedroom property is set on a substantial site on the Shore Road which is just three miles from Belfast’s city centre. There will be no bickering for spaces on the street as this home enjoys an easily maintained tarmac drive along with a garage and a large rear garden - things which are becoming increasingly hard to come by so close to the city centre.

Internally the property offers flexible accommodation over two floors which could be adapted to suit an individual family’s needs or indeed has the potential to become a clinic or an office. 

The property retains many fantastic features throughout giving it a distinct personality. Meanwhile, as you can see from the pictures, rooms are generously proportioned and enjoy an abundance of natural light.

Alongside this generosity of space, highlights downstairs include the lounge which enjoys an open fire and patio doors to the rear garden; a wonderful dining room; a beautiful kitchen with a Belfast sink and range cooker and the first of four double bedrooms.

The other three are to be found upstairs along with the family bathroom. 

The young, and the young at heart, will meanwhile love the raised lawn area to the rear with its mature trees and multitude of hiding spaces. And if you can stand to peel yourself away for just one moment, Loughside Park is situated a mere skip across the road while Fortwilliam Gold Club is a swing around the corner. Meanwhile the Abbey Centre is a few minutes away offering all the big household name stores. In terms of location, it is also ideal for city centre commuters with bus routes at its doorstep and ease of access to the M2. 

Wilsons Auctions, formed in 1936, is today the largest independent auction company in the British Isles with sites in Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales. This auction will be held in Belfast on Thursday December 21 at 7pm while viewing dates for this property take place today (Thursday December 14 at 12-12.30pm) and Monday December 18 at 12-12.30pm.
