Belfast’s Malone area is home to some of the city’s finest period properties and this commanding detached house is typical of the lofty living standards offered in these leafy suburbs.
Red Roofs is a generous home which sits on a beautifully mature site in what is one of the area’s most sought after residential tree-lined streets.
Built around 1930, this is an ideal family home with four bedrooms, a study and three reception rooms.
The garden room, a later addition to the property, leads out onto the patio area overlooking the beautifully maintained and secluded gardens, offering a real city haven in the summer time.
Inside the house is a real gem. The wonderful scale of the outside has been carried indoors where great space allows the many fine features to be showcased in a house that is full of personality.
An enclosed tiled porch opens to a superb entrance hall. Here a beautiful feature wooden staircase and wooden floor is tied together with decorative wood panels spaced along the walls.
It is a lovely, inviting, bright and cosy room filled with bespoke style which continues as you tour the house.
Off the hallways are a cloakroom and WC and the ground floor tour takes you to a drawing room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, garden room and utility.
The drawing room is a warm space filled with personality. A brick fireplace set within a feature brick wall adds a wow factor to the room and there is a glazed wall with French doors and glass side panels, flooding it with light and offering lovely views over the mature back garden.
The dining room is another impressive room with a brick fireplace, plus Tudor style decorative wood panels.
From the period feel of these main reception rooms you step into a delightful bright, stylish and modern kitchen.
Green units trimmed in oak beautifully line the walls between a matching island unit. Open shelving and an Amtico floor compliments what is an overall feel of quality in here.
A large dining area is a bright focal point in front of French doors opening onto a patio.
Another set of double doors open into a stunning garden room. A white wood vaulted ceiling makes this room a real knockout. With its solid oak strip floor, sandstone fireplace with coal effect gas fire, underfloor heating and French doors, this space has it all.
Completing the extensive ground floor accommodation is a well fitted utility room with a wine larder and a drying cupboard for your laundry.
The master bedroom is a luxuriously large space with his and hers built-in robes and a walk in dressing room and en suite shower room.
Two of the remaining three bedrooms have a pedestal wash hand basin and one bedroom has a connecting door into a study which also has a wash hand basin and fitted robe so could easily serve as a fifth bedroom.
The bathroom is spacious and features a tiled panelled bath with shower screen and Mira shower, low flush WC, heated towel rail and wash hand basin.
Outside the house is immaculate. At the front the driveway is pavior with lots of parking space and surrounded by lawns, trees and shrubs.
The secluded back garden is huge and is also beautifully landscaped with mature trees and shrubs, and has a lovely south facing patio. The house also comes with basement storage and a detached garage.
