By using Templeton Robinson we had more viewings in the first week than we ever had. Moreover the feedback was tremendous with all viewers being telephoned the next day for their opinions, with these comments then being relayed to us. Not only that, all first viewings were conducted by your staff, only second viewings being conducted by ourselves. Also all phone calls about the property were logged and sent by email to us.
The strange thing was, all the companies were charging the same commission! All in all a fantastic service, don't try the rest, use the best.

Neil, just to say a big thank you for all your and your team’s help with selling our property. A few tricky and stressful moments but with your help, we got there in the end! We’ll be sure to give you a ring when we decide to downsize.

I have dealt with Neil Templeton re the sale and purchase of various homes over a period of almost twenty years and can thoroughly recommend him. His professional, pragmatic and friendly approach has always made what can be a stressful and daunting process as smooth and painless as possible. The sale of my most recent home has just successfully completed and he provided me with excellent service and communication throughout. (The TR photographer also deserves a special mention for producing a beautiful series of pictures of my home). The eventual selling price far exceeded my expectations so obviously I am delighted. Thank you again to Neil and the Templeton Robinson team at Ballyhackamore!

Designed by local architect Robert Sharpe Hill and dating back to 1934 this historic Art-Deco property has become a well-known and much-admired landmark.
The current owners have, to their credit, created a superb, modern home whilst retaining many original and beautiful, period features.
There are two large reception rooms to the ground floor and a spacious kitchen open to breakfast room/snug, ideal for family living and entertaining. There is also a convenient ground floor w.c. and utility room.
To the first floor are four double bedrooms, main bedroom with terraced balcony, and a luxurious, contemporary shower room. The roof conversion which was added in 2010 is simply fantastic. Accessed by an oak and steel staircase, the roof lounge and surrounding terrace provide 360 panoramic views from Cavehill to Scotland to the north Down coastline, Mourne Mountains and Belfast Harbour.
The property also provides excellent storage space with a large, walk-in store room, single garage and double garage.
Waterloo Park provides easy access to the city centre and to main arterial routes and airports. An excellent choice of primary and secondary schools are nearby as well as amenities including golf clubs, parks, local shops and retail parks.
