Ormeau Park House is of typical Victorian style and combines both red and blue brick and stone in its construction and is roofed in slate. The exterior of the house is quite plainly decorated but would have originally have had a cast iron covered veranda wrapping around the right exterior side of the house, providing the family with outdoor living space.
The brick used in the construction of this house would have originated from one of the 30 brickworks in Belfast, possibly from one located at Annadale, very close by. The stone and slate in contrast may have travelled from Scotland or England to be used here. Belfast being a port city made importing such materials by sea from far away much easier.
The brick, stone, slate and timber used in the creation of Ormeau Park House can be recyled and reused in a new building.
