Welcome to Shaw’s Wood, a development of picture perfect village homes in Cullybackey, outside Ballymena.
The development is designed in continuity with the charm of its surroundings, and this can be seen in elegant touches throughout the considered architecture - with each layout maximising living space and light. The exterior elevations flow naturally throughout the site, with every house type combining a soft red brick with ivory render providing a contemporary architectural twist to these elegant 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes. Whereas the design is inspired by the heritage of the village, the build quality is inherently modern using timber framed construction to deliver the most environmentally sustainable, highest quality, energy efficient homes.
Shaw’s Wood is located off Tobar Park and within an area that is surprisingly self-contained with local amenities including a train station, shops and schools (nursery through to secondary level), all under a mile from your front door. Cullybackey train station enjoys direct routes north to Derry~Londonderry and south to Belfast City Centre.
The vibrant village street with its coffee houses, a bakery and grocery stores, is just a few minutes away by car, or via a quaint pedestrian pathway next to the development. For those who enjoy the great outdoors, there is Tobar Park across the road with a superb children’s play area and open parkland. Or walk the beautiful Maine riverside walkway that meanders for two miles from the village to the world-class Galgorm Resort and Spa.
The area offers a quiet and close-knit lifestyle, yet residents need not compromise on convenience. The bustling town of Ballymena lies three miles to the east and benefits from a compact town centre with popular high street brands, supermarkets (M&S, Tesco and Sainsbury’s), shopping malls, restaurants and leisure centres.
Additional schooling options are also available here, including the recently refurbished Northern Regional College campus with a variety of further and higher education options. Commuters can conveniently join a wide-reaching commuter network including the M2 motorway and a comprehensive bus/rail network.
