A series of new luxury homes are being developed by an Ulster Rugby player in east Belfast, Ulster Business can reveal.

Craig Gilroy, alongside developer Austin Baird, is currently building two large detached properties on a site at his home close to the Belmont Road.

Work is under way on the properties, which will include a five-bedroom and six-bedroom development.

“One of the properties is around 2,700 sq ft and the other 2,900 sq ft – we are still working on a price,” Mr Gilroy said.

“The market seems to be pretty good, looking at the other properties in the area.”

He said the properties will come to market in the next few weeks. The plans began after he bought his home, which included planning permission.

Following that, he put initial foundations in for the developments, before working with Austin Baird to build the homes.

“We got some advice and help from Austin Baird. He has been so helpful,” he said.

The properties are being marketed and sold by David Menary, head of residential at property firm Colliers.
