"The Priory" development site, Holywood

A development of apartments, at the corner of Stewart’s Place and High Street, on a site occupied by the former “Olde Priory Inn” and the once semi-derelict “Maryville House”.
Work has now (September 2018) started on the construction of apartments on the site. The development is described by one of the joint agents as follows “THE PRIORY BOAST A COLLECTION OF 16 LUXURY APARTMENTS OF VARYING SIZES. ALL APARTMENTS HAVE BEEN INDIVIDUALLY DESIGNED AND WILL BE FINISHED TO THE MOST EXACTING TURN KEY STANDARDS. With high quality kitchens, bathrooms, floor finishes, under floor heating and aluminium windows no detail has been overlooked in the quest to ensure these are fabulous homes to live in. Some apartments will also benefit from feature balconies with stunning views of the Holywood Hills and Belfast Lough. The Priory strikes the perfect balance between minimal maintenance living along with convenience and modern comforts. The Development will also see one of the oldest houses in Holywood be refurbished to its former glory in 1 Stewarts Place. With timber sash windows, original cornicing and mouldings, high ceilings and a Bangor Blue Welsh slate roof. The contrast between the new and old in this development will create lots of character and a landmark development within Holywood town centre. These stunning apartments will be perfectly suited to a wide spectrum of purchasers. It will be a wonderful place to live due to the quality of finishes, design and location”.
