Description

'Shakespear House' was built in 1891 for J.F. Warden, the proprietor of the Grand Opera House. In 1918 the property changed hands to the Haslett family and to this day the house remains in the ownership of their descendants. The impressive three storey home is a B1 listed late Victorian red brick house with Dutch gables, highly ornamental cast iron balustrading and verandah. The accommodation is over three floors; the entrance vestibule opens up to a large spacious hallway, off which there are a Drawing Room, Dining Room and Morning/Sitting Room with their own distinctive character, a kitchen, breakfast room, pantry/scullery and laundry room and downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor the main landing is wide and spacious with five bedrooms, bathroom and separate wc. On the second floor there are two further bedrooms, a billiard room, nursery bedroom and storage room. The house has outstanding original features with period fireplaces, high corniced ceilings, ornate panelling, stained glass windows and a wide sweeping staircase. The property is ready now for renovation and restoration inline with current modern day living. Outside the gardens are mainly to the front in lawns with a variety of trees and shrubs. To the rear, and with vehicular access from the Lisburn Road, there is a small plot of ground (shown on the Land Registry map) with six garages suitable for conversion subject to obtaining the necessary planning permission.
