IT HAS been de­scribed as North­ern Ire­land’s most lux­u­ri­ous de­vel­op­ment – and lit­tle won­der.

Co­ral­mount on the Li­mavady Road in the Water­side has been caus­ing quite a stir in Londonderry be­cause of its sheer op­u­lence.

The gated de­vel­op­ment by de­signer/buildertag­gart Homes is the last word in lux­ury of­fer­ing per­go­las, or­angeries, New Eng­land style car ports, cop­pered canopies and out­door fire­places.

Inside there are Ital­ian mar­ble fin­ishes, gold chan­de­liers and Ir­ish wood pan­elling.

The lux­u­ri­ous de­vel­op­ment has been at­tract­ing in­ter­est far and wide.

Three of the six have al­ready sold and Tag­gart Homes has been tak­ing in­quiries from all over Ire­land, the UK, the USA and even the Mid­dle East.

Even Derry mu­sic leg­end Phil Coul­ter is among those who’ve been to see the high end homes at Co­ral­mount for him­self.

He said: “I’d heard so much about Co­ral­mount and I wanted to go along and see what all the fuss was about. When got there I un­der­stood! Th­ese are very spe­cial homes in­deed.

“The liv­ing spa­ces, inside and out, are spec­tac­u­lar, as good as any­thing I’ve seen in all my trav­els and I was de­lighted to dis­cover that one of them even has a mu­sic room.

“Our city has come a long way in re­cent years and I think Co­ral­mount says a lot about where we are go­ing. Build­ing high end, lux­ury homes like th­ese is a great vote of con­fi­dence in the fu­ture and in that ‘ bright, brand new day’.”

The dwellings are all around the same size, at more than 3,000 sq ft.

How­ever, each of the six has been in­di­vid­u­ally designed, inside and out, and all in­clude spa­ces that can be used to best suit the owner’s life­style.

The prop­er­ties have been a labour of love for home de­signer Michael Tag­gart.

Michael is strate­gic ad­viser to Tag­gart Homes and has helped to over­see the con­struc­tion and sale of 300 de­signer homes in the North West since 2015.

“Th­ese homes are very spe­cial and are cer­tainly cre­at­ing a buzz, that’s for sure,” says Michael Tag­gart.

“Co­ral­mount is a real state­ment about where the city is at now and more im­por­tantly where it is headed.

“De­sign­ing beau­ti­ful homes has al­ways been my pas­sion. Co­ral­mount rep­re­sents our great­est and most

lux­u­ri­ous pro­ject to date.

“This new gated com­mu­nity of six stun­ning res­i­dences rep­re­sents years of ex­pe­ri­ence in the build­ing in­dus­try and draws from ideas gath­ered around the globe.

“Our crafts­men bought into my con­cept from the be­gin­ning, to turn de­sign ideas into stun­ning homes you just have to love. And I love what we’ve done here at Co­ral­mount.”

Lo­cal ma­te­ri­als as well as ma­te­ri­als from Spain, Asia, Italy, Eng­land and be­yond have been sculpted and honed to cre­ate th­ese spec­tac­u­lar homes.

Per­go­las, gar­den rooms, hand­cut cob­bles and cop­per canopies cre­ate a won­der­ful feel­ing of well-be­ing out­side while the feel­ing inside is el­e­vated to a whole new level with the finest ma­te­ri­als in­clud­ing gold chan­de­liers, Ital­ian mar­ble and Ir­ish wood pan­elling. The fin­ish is exceptional.

Two of those re­main­ing are four bed and one is a three storey five bed house.

Each house boasts the lat­est smart tech­nol­ogy and all fit­tings in­clud­ing the spec­tac­u­lar be­spoke chan­de­liers and light­ing fix­tures, hand­made cur­tains and silk lined car­pets are in­cluded.

As you ap­proach Co­ral­mount you will be met by the grandeur and pris­tine fin­ish on the ex­te­rior of the de­vel­op­ment as a whole, and then of each in­di­vid­ual home.

With min­i­mal lawn ar­eas, the fo­cus is very much on low main­te­nance.

Tag­gart Homes Di­rec­tor Ni­co­las Tag­gart says the whole team at the com­pany has en­joyed the pro­ject: “Ev­ery sin­gle per­son en­joyed work­ing on this be­cause you could see it grow from a derelict site into this beau­ti­ful gated home over­look­ing the Foyle and the Foyle Bridge.

“There’s sim­ply noth­ing like it in this coun­try. It’s a real stand­out de­vel­op­ment.

“We now have 14 show homes open across the city. It is very ex­cit­ing times.”
