Homes for sale in Craigavon are all detached single-family homes, but that doesn't mean any two are alike.

Regardless of style, these homes can offer anywhere between four and six bedrooms, and typically provide around 2,000 square feet of living space, making them a very comfortable fit even for a growing family.

The vast majority of the homes in Craigavon were built in the late '80s and early '90s, which makes them ideal for anyone who's sick of the "McMansion" suburbs of the 21st century. These homes are well constructed, with beneficial features such as heated garages and tankless water heaters, as well as other modern features like central air conditioning and vaulted ceilings. And while the overall construction of these homes reflects the sensible tastes of the previous generation, the interiors tend to have been renovated with the latest and greatest amenities, such as granite countertops, kitchen islands, and skylights. But the biggest benefit of these homes being a bit older is that they've had time to grow healthy, mature trees on their properties—while you may not feel as though you're in the wilderness, you'll have shade and privacy on many Craigavon lots.
With large garages, fully furnished basements, and luxurious master suites, these homes should appeal to anyone who absolutely needs space. If you have (or are about to have) a house full of teenagers, you can't go wrong with a Craigavon home. With gently winding streets and dead-ends limiting traffic, as well as an abundance of well-integrated greenspace throughout the neighbourhood, you can think of the streets and parks as a safe extension of your backyard, ideal for letting your children play. Truly, Craigavon homes are a dream for families.
