One of Northern Ireland’s premier home builders, Porter&Co, has commenced construction on the £22.5m development Governors Gate Demesne in Hillsborough, which includes 70 new homes and a major £60m development in Lisburn – Charlestown Hall – extending to 250 homes over a six year period.
The first phase of these developments will be released in early 2021, starting with six luxury homes at Governors Gate Demesne, situated opposite the walled boundary of Hillsborough Forest Park, together with 14 homes in Charlestown Hall.
This announcement coincides with Porter&Co opening the doors to the ‘Porter Experience’ an incredible £3m Georgian House in Wallace Village, Lisburn, housing a stunning interior and lifestyle experience for Porter&Co homebuyers.
Commenting on the new releases and launch of the ‘Porter Experience’, Managing Director, Bill Porter said: “With the positive activity in the current market, we feel comfortable at making this major investment which will generate substantial employment in the local construction industry, building supply trades, and our own professional team. We are committed to sourcing locally and know that this support will be very welcome now and next year.”
Selling agent Simon Brien, Partner of Simon Brien Residential, said: “We are confident that Charlestown Hall and Governors Gate Demesne will be very well received by the market as we are currently experiencing strong demand in the Lisburn and Hillsborough areas.
“This latest addition of the ‘Porter Experience’ in Wallace Village, is yet another progressive step by the company in delivering the ultimate for homebuyers here in Northern Ireland.
“It’s been a long-held vision to create a spectacular Georgian House that showcases those unique and personalised details that we’re renowned for; a space that inspires homeowners, helping them to visualise features and options that can be incorporated into their new home. We’re thrilled that the building is now open, and is a beautiful place where homebuyers will start their journey in owning a Porter home,”
Designed and furnished by Evelyn and Luke Mehaffey of Stylish Living, the interiors duo have relocated their interior design practice to within the building, sitting alongside displays of some of the finest craftsmanship from local companies including Alconn Kitchens and bathrooms by Bathline, Haldane Fisher.
