Video tour of stylish new homes in idyllic Down river setting

These stylish new homes blend beautifully with their idyllic setting close to the historic centre of Comber. Stephanie Bell reports...

These beautifully designed full turnkey homes are nestled along the tree lined banks of the Comber River.

This idyllic setting is just a short distance from Comber town with its family-run shops, cafés and restaurants.

Alan Patterson Design, one of the foremost architectural practices in Ireland, has again worked its magic to produce homes with stand out character.

Under the skilful guidance of founding partner, Alan Patterson, the design team has nurtured an enviable reputation for producing a consistently fresh and individual approach to its work, which is more than captured in Ardnavalley.

Here the properties are characterised by spacious, modern interiors with attractive contemporary exteriors offering a perfect blend of style and comfort.

Comber has become a popular location for families and young professionals looking to lay down roots in a thriving community with great transport links and easy access to Belfast, Newtownards, Bangor and Lisburn.

Not only is it home to some of the most breathtaking scenery around, the town is also steeped in history and abounds with historical buildings and monuments, from the old linen mill to the town square, the Comber Stones, Scrabo Tower and the ancient Nendrum monastic site.

The houses at Ardnavalley with their rendered walls, ornate eaves and door and window mouldings blend in beautifully with the picturesque surroundings.

Great attention has gone into creating kerb appeal with landscaped gardens which will blend with the extensively landscaped common areas.

Inside the specification is top notch with fully painted walls, moulded skirting and architraves and panelled internal doors with quality ironmonger.

Each house will have cabling for digital TV and Sky TV as well as a comprehensive range of electrical sockets and a zoned security alarm.

Kitchens are of the latest design and each buyer will have a choice of doors, worktops and handles.

Integrated electrical appliances include a gas hob and electric oven, glass extractor unit, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

Contemporary designer white sanitary ware with chrome fittings will be installed in bathrooms, en suites and WCs with thermostatically controlled showers over baths in bathrooms and in en suites as well as chrome heated towel rails.

Flooring will also be fitted with the lounge, bedrooms, hall, stairs, and landing carpeted and tiling in the kitchen/dining room, ground floor cloakroom, bathroom, and en suite.

Heating is gas fired and each home will have an energy efficient combination boiler which provides instant hot water on demand.

Another lovely touch is a pot belly stove in the living rooms.

A show house is now open on Sundays from 2pm until 4pm or you can arrange a private viewing by appointment through the agent.
