Holywood is an affluent commuter town on the shores of Belfast Lough in Co. Down, approximately 5 miles north east of Belfast and 8 miles west of Bangor. It was recently voted the best place to live in Northern Ireland in 2021 (The Sunday Times Best Places to Live 2021).
Holywood benefits from a high level of accessibility given its location off the main Belfast to Bangor A2 dual carriageway and direct railway lines. This development opportunity is located in a prominent position on Church View close to its junction with Downshire Road in an area predominated by high density residential.
