Property: May the wind always be at your back at this stunning family home
Recent lockdowns have brought with them many lessons. The importance of our family and our homes are perhaps the two that resonate the most.
Restrictions have also united in us a passion for the outdoors and swathes of open green spaces. Almost all of us now find ourselves with a deeper appreciation for nature, our constant source of comfort and companionship.
And as life begins to slowly return to some type of normality, we should strive to keep these values close.
This stunning home, “Forest Winds” at Belfast’s Upper Malone Road is perfectly placed to help nurture what we hold dear.
Accessed via a sweeping driveway off a private road and adjacent to Malone Golf Course, Forest Winds is expertly set in impressive mature grounds of 1.4 acres complemented by a plethora of mature shrubs and magnificent trees. In this labyrinth of space, lucky homeowners here can also enjoy a heated outdoor, almost Mediterranean-esque, private swimming pool - a welcome distraction given that holidays to sunnier climes might well be off the cards for some time to come.
This is however a property that is every bit as practical as it is charming. As well as the main build, Forest Winds boasts another massive coup courtesy of a self-contained flat, which can also be accessed internally from the main house, complete with its own kitchen living room, bedroom and bathroom.
The main property meanwhile offers three bedrooms, including a ground floor bedroom and beautifully thought out spaces with many original features such as corniced ceilings and attractive fireplaces. The lucky homeowner here can also enjoy a convenient integral double garage and beautiful sun room which features a ceramic tiled floor and of course, views of your spectacular gardens.
Although the property now requires updating and modernisation, it has all the right ingredients to become a substantial family home where memories can be both made and cherished for generations to come.
A whole host of leading schools are close by and homeowners here can also enjoy leisurely walks to Barnett Demesne and take full advantage of the many other spoils that come with living close to the Lagan Towpath. Malone and Dunmurry Golf Clubs are at your disposal alongside the Mary Peters running track.
Whilst enjoying such a private and secluded setting, Forest Winds is only five minutes from the Malone Road, the Lisburn Road and is in within easy reach of the city centre and further afield courtesy of the Outer Ring and M1 Motorway. It is also worth nothing that the property is within walking distance of excellent public transport links.
Home, filled with the people we love, is everything right now and a whole new world of opportunity and way of life awaits you here at Forest Winds.
Take that first step today.
