A new show house will mark the launch of the next phase of the popular Millmount Village development in Dundonald.

Another 20 house are due for release in the next six months and viewers will have an opportunity to appreciate the high specification of these fine new homes with the opening this Sunday from 2pm-4pm of a new 1,210 sq ft semi-detached show house.

Lagan Homes is one of Northern Ireland's foremost house builders and is known for its creative designs and stylish homes and Millmount Village is no exception.

Enjoying a village setting among rolling green hills, Millmount embodies the elegance of classical Georgian style with modern form and function.

Outstanding location, superb architectural design and the very best in contemporary engineering have been fused together to create a very special place.

The development will reflect community life offering two, three and four bedroom homes including detached, semi-detached, townhouses and apartments.

From young families, looking for a clean, safe environment close to schools, shops and entertainment, to mature couples who value peace, calm and a sense of community, Millmount has been designed to cater for everyone.

While enjoying a semi-rural setting, the thriving village of Dundonald is only a few minutes away and Belfast City Centre can be reached in around 15 minutes.

Millmount Village lies in close proximity to the major conurbations of Castlereagh, North Down and Ards offering families access to some of the best state, private and integrated schools in Northern Ireland.

The award-winning Comber Greenway, a seven mile traffic-free cycle and walking route, lies adjacent to the development, providing a unique and wonderful attraction for residents.

The Comber Greenway is also a haven for local wildlife, nature conservation and urban diversity.

The centrepiece of the Village is Millmount House, a grand Georgian residence, now listed, which has stood proudly on the site for almost 200 years. It was once the principle dwelling for Millmount Farm, a holding of around 53 acres, which in the 19th century boasted five whitewashed labourers' cottages, known collectively as Milltown.

From the late 1800s until recent living memory, Dundonald Cricket Club played competitively on the paddock in front of the house.

Now, with its sympathetic conversion to period apartments, new life and vitality is being injected into this fine, historic building.

The period façade will be the first thing to impress, while inside, there is ample interior space, offering modern living with a traditional touch. Each room is light, bright and spacious, reflecting the refined elegance of these exceptional homes.

Ornate eaves, subtle brick corbelling and mouldings give the properties a distinct and prestigious air.

Brick paved driveways and front landscaped gardens blending in with the rest of the extensively landscaped common areas in the development will add curb appeal along with smart solid timber painted front doors.

The back of the properties will be finished with top soiled lawns, timber fencing and walling.

Inside expect top-notch full turnkey modern homes. Each property has been built with a high standard of floor, wall and loft insulation to ensure minimal heat loss while reducing fuel bills.

You can put your stamp on your own fitted kitchen with a choice of doors, work top colours and handles. Integrated appliances include a gas hob, electric oven, extractor unit, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer.

All bathrooms, en suites and WCs will be fitted with contemporary designer white sanitary ware with chrome fittings and minimalistic overhead drench showers over baths with screen doors, all finished with modern ceramic tiled flooring and splash-backs.

Comfort is ensured with fitted carpets to lounges, bedrooms, hall, stairs and landings.

Sun rooms will also be included on elected sites.
