Lisburn housing development goes on market

By Margaret Canning

An entire housing development in Lisburn formerly occupied by Army families has gone on the market.

It's understood the Ministry of Defence (MoD) is selling Hamilton Gardens as part of a reduction in its estate across the UK.

There are 23 four-bed detached and six three-bed detached homes for sale - but all 29 must be bought as a block.

Michael McCafferty of selling agents GVA said the portfolio "presents the potential purchaser an excellent refurbishment opportunity of the strongest performing house type in Lisburn". He said average prices for detached homes in the area were now £267,843, according to the NI house price index for the second quarter. Meanwhile, Communities Minister Paul Givan has announced plans to overhaul an ex-Army barracks in Ballymena.
