Tieve Tara was designed and built in 1907 by Watt and Turlock. Among their many projects in Belfast were the gas works and the baths at Ormeau Avenue. Also in 1905, out of three entries, the firm won the competition to build three libraries in Belfast. In 1997 this handsome family home was sympathetically extended and restored. The property is a hidden gem located on a private lane on the leafy Somerton Road close to excellent schools ,shops and public transport facilities. It benefits from easy access to Belfast City centre and the M2. The interior of this fine home certainly makes an impression with the many original features including fireplaces, flooring, skirtings, architraves, wood panelling, picture rails, cornices, newel posts and handrails. Warmth of character are immediately evident as one enters the gracious reception hall. This is an outstanding red bricked residence occupying an exceptional mature private site along with the benefit of generous car parking.
