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!

Set in approximately half an acre of well-stocked gardens, this sympathetic but modern family home expresses an undeniable silhouette of the traditional curved barn roof, finished with Zinc and partially clad with Siberian Larch.
Architecturally designed by the current owners, the building is essentially two blocks. One set parallel with highly regarded Lisleen Road and the other rotated on an axis looking across fields towards Scrabo Tower. They are connected by glazed curtain-walling, forming a two-storey void that accommodates the curved staircase and linking bridge at first floor level.
Many of the spaces enjoy an easterly and southerly aspect which brings an added bonus of views towards Strangford Lough and some stunning sunrises.
The building has undeniable green credentials. It is highly insulated with either double or triple aluminium glazing, a Heat Recovery System and benefiting from a wood-pellet burner with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.
Offering that ever-appealing blend of a tranquil, semi-rural location with those stunning views, both Ballyhackamore and Forestside are nevertheless within four miles.
Rarely do individual homes of this calibre come on to the open market in the Gilnahirk Hills so we would recommend viewing at the earliest opportunity in order to appreciate all this superb home has to offer.
