Look inside: Unique setting of Lisburn's Ballantine Garden Village
Ballantine Garden Village announces the launch of a new phase of these stunning architectural homes tomorrow. Stephanie Bell reports...
A new show home opening today heralds the launch of a new batch of the beautifully designed homes in the quaint Ballantine Garden Village development in Lisburn.
Inspired by a bygone approach to architecture and design, including the picture book prettiness of the Arts and Crafts movement, this development stands out for its sense of style and grandeur.
There are 17 new high specification turnkey homes in this latest phase with a choice of two, four and five bedroom detached and semi detached houses.
Open viewings are being held at the new show home today from 5.30pm until 7pm with the properties going on release at 8.30am tomorrow morning. You will then have a chance to visit the show home each Sunday from 2pm-4pm.
Ballantine Garden Village's location is one to be envied as it sits on the edge of Lisburn City, seconds from major routes into Belfast, minutes from some of the region's finest schools and a stone's throw from the countryside.
The superb aesthetics of this development stretch beyond the beauty of the house designs as all around are generous green spaces overflowing with colour.
Every home in Ballantine Garden Village is fitted with a combination of Georgian-style sash windows, casement windows and contemporary roof windows to flood the key living spaces with natural light.
The period styling of the large sash windows is enhanced with an impressive energy efficiency that will keep every home bright and warm all year round.
Each home combines a unique, easy to maintain exterior with a clean, contemporary interior that where space has been a priority to cater for today's busy lifestyle.
You can work with the team to put your own personality on your home with a choice of kitchens, worktops and handles.
Each kitchen comes with a full range of appliances including gas hob, extractor fan, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and combined washer dryer.
Bathrooms, en suites and WC's will feel luxurious with vanity units throughout and chrome towel radiators, plus a free standing bath in the main bathroom.
Flooring will also be provided with carpets in the living room, stairs, landing and bedrooms and tiling to halls, dining areas, sunrooms, kitchen and bathrooms.
Energy efficient LED spotlights will be fitted in many rooms and each house will have an energy efficient boiler which is gas fired to provide instant hot water.
Intelligent wiring will give you USB charger points in the kitchen and master bedroom, broadband and Wi-Fi, plus extensive switches, sockets, telephone and TV points.
Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors will be fitted and wiring for a security alarm.
While the inside will be painted and finished to the highest standard, the same attention to detail is being lavished on the outside of these lovely homes.
Each house will come with gardens already landscaped with planted beds and turfed lawns and driveways at the front and more attractive planting and patio areas at the back.
