What you will discover as you step inside – a treasure trove
Listed on PropertyPal, photos show rocking horses in every room, two large taxidermy bears, with one looking out a window across the sea, multiple moose heads, and a rather scary looking statue of a man at the top of the stairs.
Other features include elaborate and ornate wallpaper, mirrors, and chairs. Whether you find this house charming or creepy, it certainly boasts a lot of character!
Offers for his peculiar house for sale in Northern Ireland start at £399,950. Alongside five bedrooms, there are three reception rooms and one bathroom. The house runs on oil and is a three-storey build.
Although it’s unlikely that you’ll get to keep the rocking horses or bears, there are plenty of character features that will come with the house.
Victorian features abound – elegant finishings
Walking into the property, the entrance hall boasts a Chinese slate tiled floor and traditional ceiling cornicing.
The lounge also features ceiling cornicing, with a cast-iron fireplace that has the added indulgence of a white marble mantel. A bay window looks out across the sea.
The large kitchen has space for a dining area, and there’s also a separate dining room.
The largest bedroom, like many of the rooms in the house, has wooden flooring. Four out of five of the bedrooms have a cast iron open fireplace.
At the back of the property, there’s a paved courtyard with access to an external W.C. The stepped garden can also be accessed via Carisbrooke Terrace. At the front, there’s an off-road parking space, and a raised patio offers more space for rest and relaxation.
