Thanks to its exceptionally large plot size, this semi-detached single-storey house offers tremendous potential to refurbish, convert and extend the existing property to create a brand new, A-rated contemporary family home less than five minutes’ walk from Shankill village centre.
While subject to planning regulation, there is ample precedent for such redevelopment, with numerous neighbouring property-owners having carried out major extension and modernisation works to their homes.
With considerable space available to extend to the side and rear, the existing property could easily be increased to more than three times its existing size with the addition of an L-shaped and/or wraparound extension.
Tucked away in a quiet yet highly convenient location 500m from Shankill’s regenerated village centre, the property forms part of the mature, low-rise New Vale Cottages development of 1930s era single-storey homes.
Built at a time when large gardens were much more commonplace than they are now, many local people have over the years taken full advantage of this to extend and build on to their homes. In the case of Number 43, with substantial ground available to the side and, especially, the rear of the existing property, there’s no shortage of space to build on.
At 43 square metres, the existing house is equivalent in size to a large single-bedroomed apartment. Accommodation comprises a kitchen, a well-proportioned living room, a large bedroom and a good-sized bathroom.
Located close to a family-friendly green and within easy walking distance of local shops, amenities and services, the property can be accessed by car from both the village and via nearby Library Road. Speaking of which, the good news for book lovers is that Shankill Library is also close by!
