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!

Long regarded as one of Belfast's premier addresses, Holland Park is a secluded, tree-lined street only a few minutes' walk from the heart of Ballyhackamore with its array of shops, amenities, eateries and the Glider Rapid Transit system.
As soon as you enter the gracious reception hall of this beautiful, "linked detached" Edwardian home, you get a feel for its warmth and character. Many original period features have been retained and natural light abounds as it follows you around the charming interior.
The well-appointed kitchen is an ideal focal point for modern family living with its casual dining and sitting areas. This leads in to a lovely conservatory which in turn opens out on to a sheltered, south-facing terrace leading on down to a large paved patio area, perfect for family barbeques.
The delightful, private gardens have been landscaped by the current owners to ease maintenance and create separate but adjoining spaces for adults and children alike.
With floor-to-ceiling sliding doors overlooking these lovely gardens, there is also a unique studio with adjacent cloaks/WC. It would be perfect for a variety of uses including a home office, exercise room and those looking to run a business.
Ideal for availing of a range of excellent, renowned schooling for all ages, the quiet yet convenient location will appeal to a broad range of discerning purchasers.
The perfect post-lockdown house: work from home in the superb, glass-fronted studio office which overlooks the spacious gardens with their raised beds and a potting shed for growing your own produce.
It is only upon internal inspection that one can fully appreciate all this fabulous home has to offer.
