Harking back to the city’s industrial heyday, Belfast is fortunate to have a high concentration of Victorian style properties ready and waiting to be snapped up by an army of prospective buyers that appreciate quality and timeless aesthetic. 

Although there are many imitators, this property at 426 Oldpark Road is the real deal with a current owner who has optimised the potential of this detached property through a programme of modernisation which has resulted in a deliciously inviting home that will be coveted by many.

It’s filled to bursting point with all the features that epitomise a period home of quality - this elegant property illustrates all of the key characteristics that most people love about Victorian interiors. 

The decadent, yet suitably homely, living rooms on either side of the entrance hall boast the large panelled bay windows, feature fireplaces, cornicing and picture rails that are synonymous to that architectural period. 

These features are again echoed in the main bedrooms on the first floor where the hall boasts a stately archway to the luxury main bathroom, large stained glass window and then leads onto a feature Juliet balcony with ornate cast iron balustrade. 

The property boasts six bedrooms in total sprawling two floors. Meanwhile the two upper level bedrooms retain the period cast iron fireplaces and feature arch windows of their time but are now flooded with light from the addition of modern Velux windows. 

The accommodation throughout enjoys the most fantastic floor to ceiling height which the current owners have accentuated by opening the dining room into a fabulous contemporary extended open plan dining kitchen with double doors which lead out onto the enclosed rear garden. 

Reconfigured around a centre island, this ultramodern high gloss kitchen with solid corian worktops flows from the opened period dining room into the extended living/dining kitchen area where the vaulted ceilings and Velux windows also serve to unify the space. 

From the luggage room on the second floor to the cloakroom and separate utility room on the ground floor, the pop-up entertainment system in the kitchen island unit to the smart-phone operated CCTV/alarm system - the evidence is there to show that practicality as well as style has been an integral consideration throughout its history. But the high ceilings, generous room proportions and large bay windows can lend themselves to any design your heart desires when it comes to placing your own stamp on the property.
