Property: Modern living and design in new Holywood development
This new designer-led development in Holywood sets new standards for 21st century living. Stephanie Bell reports...
Setting new standards in modern living and design is this exciting and extremely exclusive new development of just eight luxury homes at Twisel Brae in Holywood.
In what is a first for the property market, internationally-acclaimed designer Kris Turnbull has worked his magic on creating bespoke interiors with features which elevate these properties to a new level.
Commissioned at a fundamental stage of Twisel Brae's development, the award-winning interior architect and designer's influence permeates the very fabric of these stunning homes.
With a deep understanding of how great design impacts on lifestyle and functionality, Kris and his experienced team have cleverly engineered these spaces to optimise their size, aspect and flow.
Inspired by the rich character of the surrounding woodland, the interiors at Twisel Brae draw on the contrasts between rustic and refined.
Sleek, urban spaces achieve a new level of glamour and luxury through meticulous attention to detail in the materials and finishes.
Clean lines and industrial references are softened by a neutral colour palette and use of stunning natural timber for effortlessly understated style.
Reconnect with nature via thoughtfully-designed spaces that flow effortlessly from sleek, contemporary interiors to the generously sized outdoor terraces and elegant, landscaped gardens beyond.
Softly shimmering in silver granite, the terraced areas benefit from clever lighting design and are the perfect place to pause and appreciate the stunning woodland surroundings.
Kris's vision for the aesthetic finish of each project combines elements from both the urban and natural environment to create a dynamic yet understated appeal which ultimately is infused with luxury.
Expect unique features such as bold Crittall glass screen interior walls, your own state-of-the-art home office and gym, sculptural handmade kitchens, marble finishes and wraparound terraces.
Occupying an elevated and completely private site with views over the shores of Belfast Lough, this one-off development sits in a beautiful woodland setting yet is just a short walk from Holywood town centre.
Currently under construction the first three were released last Friday, with two booked within hours.
The attention to detail really is second to none with properties which encapsulate the best of 21st century design and technology.
The developer's technological expertise brings these unique homes to life in ways you never dreamed possible, using home automation.
Imagine one remote for everything; no bulky audio-visual equipment and trailing wires.
The options are endless with smart illumination that knows when you need bright task lighting or a soft ambient glow, a super-efficient intelligent home heating system and automated security designed to give you peace of mind both at home and away.
Available as an optional extra, home automation at Twisel Brae can be tailored to your individual specifications, whether you choose to simply pre-wire, or invest in a complete smart home design including everything from door locks and window blinds to underfloor heating and alarms.
ELAN technology gives you one-touch convenience for smart home control and automation.
Each of these designer homes will be finished to a turnkey standard with luxury bathrooms and kitchens all with the signature Kris Turnbull edge.
