Video: Peek inside idyllic loughside development at Jordanstown
Property of the week - Oakfield Park, Jordanstown Road, Jordanstown
If you ever hankered after the relaxed pace of life which comes with living by the coast but still need to be near the city then one of the new properties in Oakfield Park could be the home of your dreams.
Launched just last week, this new development offers the best of both worlds - a quiet location on the shores of Belfast Lough just a short commute to Belfast.
Tucked in a peaceful setting, Oakfield Park is in a naturally secluded site surrounded by mature trees and open garden space close to the shore.
This exciting new development is expected to have wide appeal for families, those downsizing and first time buyers.
Phase 1 will set the scene for the development with a mix of five house types framing the entrance and a tree lined open garden area.
Each house type offers a range of accommodation, with garden rooms and garages available on selected sites. You will have the option of choosing between three, four and five bedroom homes.
Internally the houses will be finished to a high standard with bespoke kitchens, contemporary bathrooms and your choice of premium wall and floor tiling and carpets.
With high quality finishes and fittings throughout, the emphasis is on delivering a welcoming home environment which enjoys the best in design.
There are 14 houses available in the first phase which are expected to be ready for occupation by late August. In total around 100 houses will be built.
The developers are determined to create an idyllic living environment and as you enter Oakfield Park you can expect tasteful and contemporary landscaping, combining traditional planting with a modern approach. In keeping with the mature setting and existing trees, outdoor spaces and gardens will be practical and innovative.
All properties have private driveways and gardens will be planted with grass and low level shrubs where applicable.
As well as quality homes the beauty of the location is expected to be a big draw.
In an area renowned for its prime coastal location and easy commute, Jordanstown is much sought after and Oakfield Park aims to offer that enviable, and often exclusive perfect work-life balance.
