Why buy a property in East Belfast?
10th November 2017
For many people, the traditional first choice area to live in Belfast in South but East Belfast has now established itself firmly as one a premium location for the Belfast buyer.
Surrounded by the famous Harland & Wolffe cranes on one side, the infamous Stormont Parliament Building on the other, with the Connswater Greenway running right through, East Belfast is a myriad and mixture of beautiful housing and bustling cafes which are close to main arterial routes and the city centre.
The history of the area - birthplace of Titanic, Van Morrison and homeplace of CS Lewis, lends the area an aura that few if any similar urban areas in Northern Ireland possess. You can really see and feel the atmosphere of the area just by walking around.
Unlike other parts of Belfast, especially in the South and parts of North and West, most of the East of the city is close to major road connections - being near the Knock carriageway or Sydenham means you don’t have a thirty minute trek to get to the M1, M2 or Bangor road.
Ballyhackamore and Belmont are both firmly established as bustling hubs with some of Belfast’s finest bars and restaurants. And while many places have laid claim to be ‘the new Lisburn Road’ over the years, both of these areas can hold their own when it comes to choice locations for drinking and dining.
For those into health and fitness the area has a host of gyms, sports club and is home to probably Northern Ireland’s most famous cycle route, the Connswater Greenway.
The final and most important price of the jigsaw however is price. The fact is that your pound will go further in East Belfast than it will elsewhere, in areas and properties which are among the finest in Northern Ireland.
