Cyprus Avenue, now a recognised conservation area, is unquestionably one of East Belfast's most desirable addresses. This wide, tree lined avenue is set on each side with elegant homes from the Victorian and Edwardian periods and is immortalised in the Van Morrison song of the same name. Situated just off the North Road, this impressive Edwardian residence has benefitted from a large extension that provides deceptively spacious and immaculately presented accommodation.
The property has retained many of its original features including deep moulded corniced ceilings, centre roses and feature fireplaces in each of the principle reception rooms to the front of the property.
The fantastic 'Siematic' kitchen with breakfast bar is open to the dining room and living area – a large, bright and stylish room that is the hub of this home. To the side there is a utility room with WC and cloakroom area.
Upstairs there are generous bedrooms, a bathroom with antique bath and double shower and a master suite with eaves ceilings, bedroom, full dressing and bathroom.
Externally the property sits back of Cyprus Avenue with electric gates to the front parking bordered by flowerbeds. To the side there is a terrace that attracts evening sun that is accessed via the living and dining areas that leads to large rear lawns, ideal for family.
Examples of this type of property are rare; rarer still are opportunities to acquire them – view without hesitation and by private appointment.
