High demand for new Ballyclare development

By Staff Reporter

The developers of new housing in Co Antrim have said they are having to release additional homes to meet demand.

Neptune Group director Creighton Boyd said the company will open a new show home tomorrow at its Ollar Valley development in Ballyclare.

He said more than half the 59 three and four-bed homes had been sold off-plan.

Mr Boyd added: "The opening of this show home reflects our continued confidence in the local housing market and our commitment to creating properties of exceptional quality and superior design without compromise."

The houses are priced at between £140,000 and £230,000.

Neptune Group is based in England and now owns a number of housing developments in Northern Ireland.

Mr Boyd said: "We currently have in the region of 110 employees working on the Ollar Valley site and are in the final stages of providing a new roundabout on the Templepatrick Road which is a major improvement to local infrastructure.

"With a gross development value in the region of £10m, the local construction sector in Northern Ireland will benefit greatly from Ollar Valley."

David Menary of Colliers New Homes, joint agents with Country Estates, said: "We've been delighted by the Northern Ireland market's response to the homes on offer at Ollar Valley prior to the first handovers."
