Property: ‘Development's popularity tells us that there is still a strong demand for family homes in Belfast' - Braidwater

DEMAND for new family homes in Belfast is high, reports Northern Ireland house-builder Braidwater. The award-winning developer, which launched its Castlehill development on the Ballygowan Road just eight weeks ago, is already releasing additional homes at the development - weeks ahead of schedule.

Demand was apparent from the beginning, as purchasers queued overnight for the initial release of properties at Simon Brien Residential on the Lisburn Road in order to secure one of the three or four-bedroom homes.

Darren Farnan, marketing manager at Braidwater, said: “We are delighted with the record levels of interest we have received for our latest collection of family homes at Castlehill, well before even having a show home built. Our sales success is testament to the fact that high quality family homes in Belfast are clearly in strong demand and also that homebuyers are opting for new homes with contemporary finishes and modern layouts, all designed with family living in mind.”

Selling ahead of schedule, Castlehill offers a stylish collection of three- and four-bedroom family homes in the sought-after area on the Ballygowan Road to the south east of Belfast. With excellent views over the city and towards the Antrim Hills, easy access to the neighbouring countryside and great commuter links back into Belfast, Castlehill provides quality homes in a prime location.

Proving popular with buyers, the attractive homes offer classic exteriors, with kerb appeal and off-street parking, ensuring that buyers can enjoy a sense of privacy and exclusivity.  Internally, space in the homes has been optimised, with bright open-plan kitchen/dining areas being the centrepiece; an appealing choice for families. Bedrooms are generously sized, and homes benefit from large family bathrooms with ensuite facilities completing the master bedrooms.

Shane Maguire, of Simon Brien Residential, added: “Since the information evening that took place back in May we have been inundated with enquiries and bookings for the first release of homes at Castlehill. The majority of interest is coming from first time buyers and families looking to get onto the property ladder and they are impressed with the quality homes available at the development.

“After a promising start, we expect this success to continue, both due to the property types available and Ballygowan Road being a highly sought-after south east Belfast area.”

The professionally designed show home at Castlehill is set to be officially launched on Sunday October 7 and will give homebuyers the opportunity to find out more about living at the development. A beautiful bright and spacious four-bedroom home, Braidwater will be able to showcase the quality, consistency and the high specification finish being offered throughout the development, giving homebuyers a glimpse of life at Castlehill.

Overlooking Belfast City Centre and the Antrim Hills, Castlehill offers the luxury of countryside air and city views with a range of local amenities which are easily accessible including shops and restaurants in the trendy Ballyhackamore and Forestside Shopping Centre.
