Property: A true beauty right under Napoleon's Nose
Asking Price: £389,500
Forest Bathing, the Japanese practice of spending time surrounded by trees and natural beauty, is fast gaining momentum as the holy grail of good mental and physical wellbeing.
However with the pressures of modern life, especially in the city, it’s becoming increasingly hard to get the recommended time outdoors that our minds and bodies crave.
North Belfast and in particular Cavehill, is regularly cited as a top place to live in Northern Ireland. On the edge of the city, here you can enjoy a wealth of amenities including shops and schools and of course excellent commuter links into Belfast and beyond. But it is perhaps less to do with built amenities and more to do with natural ones that makes this a great place to live.
As here, underneath Napoleon’s Nose and from 618 Antrim Road, you can enjoy setting off on one of Northern Ireland’s most iconic hikes as and when tickles your fancy.
An imposing five bedroom detached home, families can enjoy contemporary luxury in a property that’s bursting with history and character.
Period elegance and modern luxury work in perfect harmony in this extended and improved home. A grand entrance leads to three large reception rooms. Meanwhile spaces are bright and airy, a common theme throughout this stunning property.
A spectacular lounge features a marble fireplace while the living room enjoys a beautiful bay window and the family room boasts views of Cavehill. This uncompromising design aesthetic continues through to the kitchen, the heart of a home, which features a built-in split level double oven, ceramic hob and extractor fan plus a spacious separate utility room. No effort has been spared in creating a stunning yet functional family home.
Upstairs, and past an ornate stained glass window, this sublime sense of space continues with five bedrooms all offering views to the mountain or Belfast Lough and of course a generous and again, newly installed, luxury family bathroom.
More subtle improvements include new gas heating, improved wiring, updated insulation, new decoration and quality flooring throughout - all while retaining those most sought after period features. Externally the property offers ample driveway parking, mature gardens to the front and rear in brick paved patio, mature lawns and hedging - offering less maintenance and therefore more time for the property’s lucky owner to enjoy all the spoils that come with living in this much coveted location.
Given its location in an area of increasing popularity and of course its sympathetic modernisation, interest in 618 Antrim Road is expected to be high. Early viewing is advised.
