Hagan Homes has announced it has commenced construction on its latest residential development, Carncormick Meadow, located on Gortnageeragh Road, Cargan, Ballymena.

Initial work kicked off in spring, marking Hagan Homes’ first-ever housing development in the Cargan area. The project, a significant £8 million investment, is expected to take two years to complete, creating up to 60 jobs during the construction phase.

Carncormick Meadow promises to be an exemplary residential community, blending modern living with the neighbouring beauty of County Antrim’s countryside and popular NI attractions.

The development will feature 53 homes, including three-bedroom semi-detached and detached houses, designed to cater to families and individuals. The homes will be priced between £160,000 and £190,000, making them an attractive option for a range of buyers.

Each home at Carncormick Meadow is designed to an impeccably high standard, ensuring style, comfort, and luxury. The properties feature bright, spacious interiors, striking exteriors, and high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout. Homeowners will benefit from modern conveniences, including the Ember PS Smart Heating Control System, pre-wiring for BT and Sky Q, and ultrafast full fibre broadband.

Additionally, Carncormick Meadow is Hagan Homes’ first A-rated EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) development. The EPC’s purpose is to indicate how energy efficient a building is, providing an energy efficiency rating from A to G, where A is very efficient, and G is the least efficient. The better the rating, the more energy efficient the building is, and the lower the fuel bills are likely to be. This rating underscores Hagan Homes’ commitment to sustainability and energy efficiency, ensuring lower fuel bills and a smaller carbon footprint for homeowners.
