Full of charm and Steeped in History

Immersed in a wealth of rich culture and fascinating history, West House at Belvoir Park incorporates the classical appeal of striking Edwardian architecture into the perfect living environment for any modern homeowner.

Situated in the established Belvoir Park development and surrounded by some of South Belfast’s most beautiful landscapes, West House is intended to reflect the traditional design and construction of the surrounding buildings, from which it takes its inspiration. Notably, West House combines the best of both worlds in its ability to replicate captivating elements of the past, all the while maintaining a sense of contemporary living.

First opened in 1926, West House was originally built to provide accommodation for nurses working within the city. Designed by the renowned James R. Young, West House is just one of the many outstanding buildings erected by the prolific Young and Mackenzie architectural firm. Responsible for much of the city’s significant buildings and notable landmarks, Young and Mackenzie have played a prominent role in the creation of the cultural and historic Belfast city which thrives today. Thanks to the spectacular new refurbishment of West House, this listed building is truly an architectural marvel which has withstood the test of time for almost one hundred years.

Throughout previous restoration works, the impeccable refurbishment of the original Edwardian Pavilions paved the way for the seamless incorporation of the old and the new into unique living spaces. West House offers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to connect with history, featuring seven immaculately designed homes. Boasting spacious accommodation and integrating high-quality, modern fixtures at every opportunity, these exceptional homes are the perfect choice when it comes to contemporary city living whilst encompassing significant features of the past.

Not only enabling residents of Belvoir Park to truly appreciate the beauty of momentous architecture, this exclusive site also imitates the natural attraction of the surrounding rural landscape. Residents of West House are guaranteed the experience of countryside living, all the while remaining a short distance from Belfast City Centre.

From a wealth of high-street boutiques and convenience stores in the city centre, to an array of trendy cafés and restaurants dotted throughout the Lisburn Road and Ormeau area, residents of West House don’t have far to travel in order to witness the appeal of city life. Located nearby, the thriving Queen’s Quarter is host to a range of prominent attractions, including Queen’s University Belfast, Botanic Gardens and the Ulster Museum.
