Property: Carn Wood takes the plaudits

The standard of Ballymena’s Carn Wood development has unsurprisingly garnered plenty of attention, with an inevitable nomination for those behind the ambitious project at this year’s NHBC Awards.

Headed up by site manager Neil Scullin, meticulous attention to detail was paid to every aspect of this Carniny Road site with its assortment of spacious and extremely energy efficient three bedroom townhouses, semi-detached homes and two bed apartments.

There are however, only a few apartments left to buy at £125,000, some semi-detached homes coming in at £140,000 and only one detached property on sale at £180,000.

The majority of Carn Wood properties are finished in an attractive brick and are incredibly spacious, offering up 900 to 1,474 square foot of living space.

All house types are finished to comprehensive turnkey standards that include internal painting throughout, a choice of kitchen with appliances, fitted sanitary ware, wall tiling and floor tiling to the kitchen, bathroom and en-suite and a choice of fireplace. All houses also offer parking and are fitted with gas fired central heating.

In terms of location, Carn Wood ticks all the boxes.

Not only is it within walking distance of the town centre, but it is also easily accessible to Ballymena’s main amenities and road links giving it an enviable location when considering a home that delivers on all fronts.

Ballymena is a hub for some of the best retailers in the country with household names, but it’s also a gateway to the stunning Glenariff Forest Park, followed by the famous Causeway Coast.

Great transport links means day trips to Ballycastle and Portrush are easier than ever, while the world famous Dark Hedges near Armoy is half an hour away by car- a perfect option for when the relatives stay over.
