Property: Historical charm and character perfect for modern times

Beulah-Anne Sinton

Rental: £2,500 per calendar month

Properties like this one at 24 Joy Street in Belfast are a rare find indeed. What’s rarer still, is that this historically, architecturally and arguably culturally important home is currently available on the rental market. Now this sublime build, said to have once welcomed Charlie Chaplin, is ready and waiting for you to begin a new chapter behind its iconic blue door. 

Located in Belfast’s vibrant Linen Quarter, this Georgian townhouse looks like it has been plucked straight out of an episode of Netflix’s Bridgerton or perhaps hosted Jane Bennet as she fled from her rural life to stay in London for a while. 

Fanciful stuff but 24 Joy Street’s real history is perhaps even more interesting. As it has been reported that Charlie Chaplin, one of the film industry’s most important figures, stayed here during a spell in Belfast. 

Boasting three generously sized bedrooms, the property is deceptively spacious. And while it expertly retains its original features and swathes of character, 24 Joy Street is perfectly modern on the inside with a beautiful kitchen and charming living area with feature fireplace. 

In fact the whole area is saturated with industrial history and heritage - the Linen Quarter was once the headquarters of Ireland’s global linen industry. And residents at 24 Joy Street are in the heart of it all mere moments from some of Belfast’s best attractions including the Crown Bar, Ulster Hall and Grand Opera House. 

Its central location is also perfect for city centre workers or commuters further afield courtesy of the nearby Great Victoria Street Station.
