Built in 1893 and offering accommodation over three floors extending to over 4000 sq. ft. the building was designed by the renowned architect Vincent Craig. The property is a former Bank with the original banking hall and vaults on the ground floor and the area which would have served as the bank manager's home on the upper floors. The property is noted as a property of historical interest retaining many of the original features.

At present the property offers accommodation over three floors with a ground floor apartment consisting of two intriguing double bedrooms in the former bank vaults and a magnificent open plan living area in the banking hall. The upper floors currently offer further adaptable accommodation with numerous options for bedrooms and reception space including a magnificent L shaped lounge area which is currently divided in to 2 generous bedrooms.

This unique opportunity offers potential purchasers an array of options and possibilities.

A magnificent, bespoke family home which would offer substantial space combined with privacy and original character whilst remaining extremely convenient to many amenities including public transport, shops and leading schools.

Alternatively, some purchasers may see the potential to convert to individual apartments or a ground floor apartment with separate accommodation above which would present an investment opportunity to resell or rent as an Air BnB or longer term lease investment. All with easy access to Belfast City Centre, particularly the vibrant Cathedral Quarter. There is existing planning permission for change of use from single residential unit to 4 no. apartments including an additional floor and rear extension, the replacement of windows and doors, partial demolition and all associated site works.
