Braidwater has commenced construction on drainage and preliminary road works at Derry’s newest luxury development, Gleann Elagh. The development, on the Upper Galliagh Road in west Derry, comprises 21 detached homes laid out in a traditional avenue style.
Offering opulent living, Gleann Elagh is located in a secluded setting and sheltered by private land populated with mature beech trees, just five minutes from the city of Derry.
Darren Farnan, marketing manager of Braidwater, said: “This is a welcome stage for those who have pre-booked homes in Gleann Elagh and interested purchasers who have been waiting for work to start. Preliminary works will see drainage installed and a complete new road upgrade which will then lead to full construction works commencing.
“We hope to have our first homes ready to hand over this Autumn which will also tie in with the official launch of a show home. This is an exciting time for Braidwater, with 3 developments now up and running in the north west alone and the business growing in general.’’
The four-bedroom detached homes at Gleann Elagh are classically styled, with four different house types offering a variety of architectural detailing.
Modern timber frame construction gives a robust build quality as well as offering excellent insulation and energy efficiency.
Residents at Gleann Elagh will benefit from easy access to Derry. Both the Waterside area on the east bank of the River Foyle and Cityside on the west bank can be reached in a few minutes by car or bus.
There are ample leisure opportunities nearby. Templemore Sports Complex just around the corner offers swimming and fitness classes, while golfers can tee off at Foyle Golf Centre’s 18-hole championship length Earhart course, Woodlands Par 3 and driving range. Ballyarnett Country Park has a popular playground, and there are beautiful riverside walks along the Foyle.
The area has a good selection of nurseries, primary and secondary schools, plus Ulster University’s Magee campus. Derry has a range of shopping centres with high street stores and restaurants including Foyleside, Richmond and Quayside, while the Brunswick Moviebowl has a seven-screen cinema, children’s play centre and bowling alley.
Gleann Elagh has good transport links as the Buncrana Road offers city access within 5 minutes. The new A6 Skeoge Bypass leads directly to the Foyle Bridge and Belfast can be reached in just over an hour and a half. The scenery and beaches of Donegal are within easy driving distance.
