This terrace house in Belfast may appear normal from the outside, however, it is hiding a surprising interior.
89 Henderson Avenue is located off the Cavehill Road and appears to be a traditional red-brick home. However, this period terraced property is hiding a surprising interior as beyond the front door is a bright and open space that has been finished to the highest of standards.
Situated in a popular residential area, this North Belfast home is within walking distance of Belfast city centre and various transport routes, making it the perfect starter home.
An open plan integrated kitchen with built-in microwave, an integrated washer / dryer, under oven and gas hob can be found on the ground floor.
This area emits a luxurious feel through the recessed lighting, solid oak worktops, stainless steel sink and a range of high and low level units.
The feature open tread copper staircase provides the focal point of the ground floor. This staircase blends into the space and gives the room a unique feel.
The perfectly placed kitchen window allows light to flow through the open plan dining room and living area, illuminating the area with natural light.
Semi-solid herringbone floor and a double panelled radiator is found in the living area.
Double glazed patio doors opens to a patio deck and the well-maintained garden area. High fencing ensures that there is privacy among neighbours.
Upstairs, this North Belfast house features two generous bedrooms and a contemporary white bathroom suite. This bathroom features a panelled bath, vanity unit, shower screen, low flush WC and is accentuated with partly tiled walls, recessed lighting and a ceramic tiled floor.
Carly Walsh, who is selling the property, highlights that her biggest annoyance about the house when she moved in last year was the staircase.
Carly said: “The stairs was the one thing I hated about the house before we bought it.
“We designed the house around the stairs, trying to create a feature around something I hated.
“I wanted initially to change the metal to wood, but we basically discovered this copper coloured paint was the same tone as the wood we wanted.
“Due to the stairs being the way they were, we decided to do the kind of industrial look. We kind of coordinated everything to that.”
Carly doesn’t put an age limit on those who have been interested, but she believes that “the finish it has with the modern vibe is going to appeal more to young professionals or first time buyers”.
Carly carried out the refurbishment work with her partner and described the lighting as being a “big priority.”
“It was a bit ambitious going for a black kitchen in a house open-planned and quite small.
“We put time, effort and money into the lighting. We made lighting a big priority. You feel a bit less claustrophobic.
