Quietly tucked away in the heart of one of Belfast’s most coveted addresses, 24 Derryvolgie Avenue is ideal for growing families looking to set up home next to a wealth of amenities for work and recreation. 

Designed in 1898 by William J.Fennell, this three-storey Victorian semi-detached home retains many of its beautiful period features with a dash of modern, but sympathetic, updates including a recent extension. And as you would expect, the property boasts all the authentic marks of grandeur that were typical of this period - the kind that have been copied, but never perfected, in quite the same way as these original examples.

On this leafy avenue in the Malone area of south Belfast, this impressive property extends to some 3,800 sq feet and boasts spacious and well proportioned accommodation ideal for expanding families. Eager children can take their pick from a total of five bedrooms - two of which (including the main with ensuite) are located on the first floor while an additional three offer a treasure trove ripe for exploration on the second floor. There is an additional sixth room which is ideal for use as a study or an extra bedroom if required. That’s what makes 24 Derryvolgie Avenue so special - it’s a period property but adaptable to family life. 

Yet there are plenty of quirky features sure to satisfy all fans of aesthetics including the hardwood front door and wood panelled and terracotta tiled cloakroom. Living spaces enjoy bay windows, lashings of light and original fireplaces but in the family room, a more contemporary stove peeks through to the wonderful kitchen and dining area. Keen cooks will want for nothing here, while not so keen cooks can ease their pain with the beautiful views to the enclosed rear garden and cosy underfloor heating.

Upstairs stumble upon the property’s magnificent drawing room and accommodation quarters. And as you might expect, rooms are not exactly shy of space. Outside this high level of practicality continues with a large landscaped garden, driveway and double garage. 

This property has it all in terms of looks but in terms of its location, is a true gem. Here you are mere minutes from the Lisburn Road, leading schools, excellent transport networks and of course, Queen’s University.
