Home builder, Kap has secured one of NI´s most prestigious sites at High Street, Holywood. The secluded, woodland 6 acre site is just moments from Holywood´s thriving town centre and the proposed development represents a rare opportunity to buy a new build home in Holywood.
16 traditionally designed detached homes are planned, alongside two classically styled mansion style apartment blocks. There will be 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and 4 & 5 bedroom detached homes.
Philip Polly, MD of Kap is understandably delighted by his company´s acquisition of the land. "It´s a perfect location, but there´s more to it than that. It´s packed with natural beauty - mature trees and woodland foliage - and also with great local heritage. Kap believes retaining these features is key to giving the site a genuine sense of place as well as respecting the stunning surroundings. Protecting nature and celebrating heritage are at the heart of Kap´s approach."
The development will be known as `The Firs´, a nod to the history of the site as that was the name given to the original period residence built there in 1889. Back then it was home to the Payne family, local tailor merchants and more recently was used as a convent school and then as a headquarters for the Council of Catholic Maintained Schools.
The development has been designed in a classical architectural style with spacious contemporary interior layouts and every home will be built and finished to an exceptionally high standard. Sites of this quality are few and far between, especially in this area. We have no doubt that when the first phase is released in early 2024, interest and demand will be exceptionally high. The proposed house and apartment designs, together with the scheme layout and mature environment all combine to ensure that the completed development will be perceived as one of the premiere addresses in Holywood. All of houses and apartments offer generously proportioned and elegant accommodation, echoing the period architecture of Holywood.
The Firs offers all the perfect qualities for both families and downsizers - easy walking distance to town centre and schools, easy commuting distance to Belfast and Bangor and a private wooded setting on the edge of Holywood town."
The Firs phase one will be released in early 2024.
