New development to be launched tomorrow … Stephanie Bell reports
Tomorrow sees the launch of an exciting new development of top quality energy efficient homes in Templepatrick.
Temple Hall will offer a range of attractive three and four bedroom semi detached and detached homes from 997 sq ft to 1593 sq ft.
Builders Narva Developments, a Cookstown based company run by Des Nugent, have taken great care in the overall design to ensure the development reflects the character of the village of Templepatrick.
Elegant properties of Georgian style and detailing will be set in relaxed landscaped avenues blending contemporary living with a more established and traditional feel.
Vistas through the site have been introduced to retain the relationship of the development to the open countryside beyond.
The planning of Temple Hall has been painstakingly carried out to ensure sustainable architecture, modern technology, green space and a strong sense of community.
While the properties look fantastic on the outside, considerable thought has also gone into creating interiors that offer the very best in terms of design, layout, fixtures and fittings.
There will be a total of 104 houses built in a variety of designs and sizes to accommodate different needs and tastes with both open-plan living options with kitchen-dining and snug or others where dining rooms and lounges are separate.
Fully-fitted kitchens, utility rooms and elegant bathrooms with wonderful clean lines and crisp white suites are all standard.
The overall aim has been to fashion a contemporary living space for all the family with the added value of living in a wonderful, thriving village community.
Superb local facilities such as the golf course, hotel and spa at the Hilton Templepatrick, combined with excellent 'park-and-ride', road, rail and airport links and just 15 minutes from Belfast makes this a great location.
The houses are constructed in traditional brick block with insulated cavity walls and timber construction to the upper floor levels.
A lovely touch is traditional style triple glazed UPVC sliding sash windows to the front.
Inside high skirting and architraves are another fine finish and all walls and ceilings will be painted.
Bathroom and en suites will be finished with high quality floor and wall tiling to compliment the contemporary interior styling.
The modern white sanitary ware will include wall mounted WC with concealed cisterns, stylish ceramic hand basins with polished chrome single lever pillar tap, stone resin shower trays and thermostatic controlled shower valves with glass screen and chromium plated heated towel rails in most of the properties.
Buyers will have a choice of carpets for the lounge, bedrooms, stairs, landing and hallway as well as the option of tiling or laminate flooring the kitchen, plus laminate flooring in the dining area.
Kitchens will be custom designed with a combination of finishes with chrome handles and tall storage cupboards which have been incorporated into most of the properties.
Quality appliances include a full height integrated fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, oven and hob and stainless steel extractor canopy.
The properties will have gas fired heating systems with thermostatically controlled panel radiators.
High spec electrics include TV points in the lounge, kitchen and bedrooms in most house types, plus smoke, heat and carbon monoxide detectors, telephone points, external lighting to rear doors and wiring for a burglar alarm.
Comprehensive landscaping will include walls, estate railing and hedging throughout the development. Front and rear gardens will be top soiled and seeded with high timber screen fencing or masonry walling to rear boundaries plus a paved patio area.
A showhouse opens for first bookings at 8.30am tomorrow and then on Sundays from 2-4pm.
