Property: A stylish masterpiece here at Ravenhill
Anyone seen ITV’s excellent drama series Cheat recently?
In the midst of a woeful tale involving blackmail, stalking and a unhealthy dollop of family drama that most of us will thankfully never see, you might well have noticed that the show’s main protagonists, university professors, were swigging the occasional whiskey and marking dissertations in a stunning period home in an eternally sunny Cambridge, England.
Although we can’t promise the good weather, Cheat was ironically a piece of fiction after all, this beautiful property at Belfast’s Ravenhill is similarly striking and the perfect opportunity to acquire a visually charming yet equally timeless and practical family home. A place in which you can start to write your own, and most likely less dramatic, chapters.
An exceptional double fronted six bedroom and semi-detached home, 55 Park Road enjoys a prime residential location in south east Belfast that’s close to the city centre, Queen’s University, hospitals, the city airport and of course the Friday night roar at The Kingspan Stadium.
On arrival the enclosed entrance porch with original ceramic tiled floor harks back to the property’s golden history. These charming features continued by way of feature walnut hardwood flooring and cornice ceiling.
The drawing room enjoys floods of natural light courtesy of its beautiful bay window and a feature sandstone fireplace. Just one of many delightful surprises, folding doors open to a dining room while beyond that, French doors open onto a substantial decking area - all unite to make the perfect space for entertaining.
The living room also enjoys the spoils of bay windows and a superb marble fireplace with easy keep gas coal effect fire. Downstairs also boasts a cloakroom and WC.
As the saying goes, the kitchen is the heart of the family home and it will likely become true at 55 Park Road. It’s spacious and features an exceptional range of units and polished granite work surfaces complemented by recessed lighting and of course the coveted breakfast bar. French doors also lead outside for al fresco dining.
On the first floor, you’ll find five spacious bedrooms - each with their unique features - and a deluxe bathroom. On the second floor rests the final bedroom with an open aspect to a dressing area and ensuite shower room.
Outside you’ll enjoy spacious off street parking, utility space and an enclosed south facing rear garden and separate paved courtyard.
Stunning property aside, it’s easy to see why this is such a coveted place to live in the city. A whole range of top schools are nearby as is wonderful Ormeau Park and a wealth of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
Come see for yourself the many charms of 55 Park Road as Templeton Robinson host a special open viewing event this evening, Thursday March 21, from 6-7pm.
