Up on Cyprus Avenue

You may be familiar with one of Belfast’s most famous streets made legendary in a hit song by local star Van Morrison.

This stunning property enjoys a prestigious history dating back to 1877 during which it has had just four owners throughout this 141-year period- a true testament to the charm of this property. The semi-detached residence sits in a conservation area within walking distance to the popular Ballyhackamore and Belmont Villages and close to local amenities.

Designed by architects Young and McKenzie, 2 Cyprus Avenue forms part of Plevna Villa- two pairs of semi-detached residences.

An extremely spacious property, the residence boasts three reception rooms and five bedrooms.

The inside is well-maintained with many original Victorian and Edwardian features.

The charming period architecture is evident right from the moment you enter this superb property. Original cornicing, a picture rail and part wood paneled walls line the hallway at the entrance of the home.

The first of three reception rooms is charming and inviting. From the semi solid oak floor to the mahogany fireplace with granite hearth and open fire, the way in which this property has been maintained is a credit to its owners.

The living room is traditional and opulent. The bay window allows for daylight to flood in and casts light onto the centrepiece of the room- an incredible marble fireplace with open fire. High corniced ceilings and a rose further add to the elegance of this space.
