Foxleigh Meadow will also offer open green space and close proximity to attractions including Lissanoure Castle, Gracehill Golf Course as well as amenities including Ballymoney Train Station which opens up destinations on the North Coast.

Speaking about the site, Chair of Hagan Homes, James Hagan said: "We are delighted to kickstart work on the Foxleigh Meadow development, which is one our biggest in recent years. 

"The range of properties on offer and their stunning aesthetics make this a beautiful addition to the NI property market.

"It's a bittersweet moment to unveil the site to the NI homemaker because it marks one of our final projects here. 

"We have made the decision to stop purchasing any further sites in Northern Ireland because of the challenges we face from an intensely bureaucratic planning system but we know this site and our others that will follow in the very near future will be built with love and ensure we leave a lasting legacy in Northern Ireland."
