Thirty-eight new homes are to be built at Darby Road, in Carrick, in a £4.5 million development which will create 50 construction jobs.

Work on the Hagan Homes site has just started and will take approximately two years to complete.

Phase one of the development is scheduled for completion in spring 2018, with prices starting from £114,950.

Jamesy Hagan, Managing Director, Hagan Homes, said: “We are delighted to announce our plans for the new Darby Road development in Carrickfergus.

“It is a clear indication of Hagan Homes’ confidence in the local market and a further sign of rejuvenation in the construction sector.

“Demand for superior homes offering value in Northern Ireland is high and the Darby Road development offers home buyers the opportunity to live in one of the most historic locations in the country.”

The development will be comprised of three-bedroom “turnkey” townhouses, semi-detached and detached houses.

“The homes are designed to appeal to all demographics, whether first-time buyers, families, young professionals and downsizers,” Mr. Hagan continued.

“Hagan Homes’ aim is to build affordable, quality, stylish homes and achieve this by appointing award-winning architects, interior designers and craftspeople. Our homes are built to be lived in, so the usability of homes has been a primary consideration in the design and build. Hagan Homes reflect the needs of the modern day family and are designed to cater for changing needs as families grow.”
