A look at Holly House

Located in Belfast, Holly House is a detached, two-storey house with connected two-storey extension. The development provides a home to six people through supported living, having recently undergone a successful refurbishment, which focused on internal modifications.

When we acquired this property Holly House was in excellent condition, so the focus of the refurbishment was on enhancement. Working with our partners, our aim was to improve and upgrade Holly House through a dedicated program of works, including drainage, electrical works and decoration, all with the goal of meeting the needs of each resident.

Refurbishing Holly House

Following a series of strip out works, new partitions were installed, windows were updated or replaced, flooring and ceilings were given an overhaul, and new internal doors were fitted. TV points were added to bedrooms and lounges, lighting was upgraded, and carpets and radiators were fitted.

To improve accessibility within Holly House, ramps were added to the kitchen, lounge and entrances. Disabled Discrimination Act (DDA) compliant handrails were also installed throughout, including a mix of timber rails, Tubular Kee Klamp rails and safety rails in bathrooms.

Safety was also improved with the introduction of a new fire detection system, which included smoke detectors to all rooms and circulation areas, with heat detectors in the kitchens.

To complete the refurbishment works at Holly House, a program of landscaping work took place, including the installation of new tarmac and the relocation of an existing timber fence. A space for staff was also created in the existing extension.

Holly House transformed

This was a successful refurbishment for Sense, and a great example of the work our teams can achieve for organisations who specialise in supporting people with complex disabilities. Holly House provides a comfortable living environment for each person in beautiful surroundings.

Holly House is close to train stations and is just a short drive away from the city.
