The Owner's Perspective
"Living in this house for the past 12 years has been like living in the country whilst in the heart of the town. Once we enter our drive the trees and hedges which have been there way longer than us have grown and matured to make our home very secluded and picturesque. We have loved living here and extending the house whilst our family has aged. Everyone has their own favourite space in the house but mostly we enjoy the garden and the games room where we have had many competitive moments. Belfast Road is a great place to live for a growing family. No need for taxis here!"
