A stunning Victorian home built in 1896 in an idyllic location overlooking the magnificent Wallace Park.
The property was originally built for the doctors of Lisburn and the location was carefully selected both for its prestige and convenience to service the people.
Lisburn is derived from the Irish Lios, meaning 'fort of the stream' and dates back as far as the early 1600s, the fort was located north of Wallace Park. Lisburn has grown in size and stature with a population of over 71,000 and is now the third largest city in Northern Ireland.
Lisburn is a popular choice for all ages. Situated on the Dublin-Belfast corridor and within 30 minutes of both airports enables easy commuting. The city boasts some of the best schools in the Province along with a host of sporting facilities including Salto National gymnastics centre, Alpha National Badminton Centre and the Lagan Valley Leisureplex which offers some of the most extensive leisure facilities to be found in the UK and Ireland. Rugby, cricket, football, tennis and many others sports can be enjoyed in the immediate area.
The City offers good shopping facilities, gastro delights in its many restaurants and a museum exhibiting artefacts of Lisburn's linen industry.
Oakleigh House is approached by a private road servicing four properties only. It is a marvellous example of Victorian architecture, built to impress and still impressing over 100 years later.
The asymmetric design is both elaborate and imposing yet retains the romantic Victorian notion that fashion and architecture are one of the same.
The present owners have extensively modernised the property both inside and out. Great care has been taken to maintain many original features and sensitively restore others with reclaimed 'period fitting' materials.
Features include an 1890s reclaimed wooden floor, refubished school house cast iron radiators, a bespoke stained glass door commission by Wilson's Yard (based on the original design), restored sash windows, most with Slimlite glass, custom made carpets from Ulster Weavers and wooden shutters by Frazer Nolan.
A contemporary kitchen caters wonderfully for modern day living and opens onto a low maintenance secluded courtyard gardens, perfect for relaxing after a busy day.
One of the properties outstanding attractions are the panoramic views over Wallace Park. The 26 acre meadow was bequeathed to the people of Lisburn in 1884 by Sir Richard Wallace. Today it incorporates a fabulous play park, duck pond, and sporting facilities such as cricket, football and tennis. The park hosts many events including The Lord Mayor's Show, Park Run and the annual fireworks display.
