A Fusion of Traditional and Contemporary
Millmount Village has been designed by Alan Patterson Design, one of the foremost architectural practices in Ireland. Under the skilful guidance of founding partner, Alan Patterson, this design team has nurtured an enviable reputation for producing a consistently fresh and individual approach to its work, and this is reflected in every project, no less so than in Millmount Village.
Alan Patterson outlines the ethos and influences that have helped to shape this unique development:
Where Past, Present and Future Merge
The centrepiece of Millmount Village is Millmount House, a grand Georgian residence, now listed, which has stood here proudly for almost two hundred years. It was once the principle dwelling for Millmount Farm, a holding of around 53 acres, which in the nineteenth century boasted five whitewashed labourers' cottages, known collectively as Milltown.
From the late 1800s until recent living memory, Dundonald Cricket Club played competitively on the paddock in front of the house. Now, with its sympathetic conversion to period apartments, new life and vitality is being injected into this fine, historic building.
