Helen Turkington and her team have spent more than 20 years helping people design their homes. Born in Tyrone, Helen moved to London where she worked on many high-profile interior projects. She recently hooked up with Keith Craddock of Red Rock Developments to launch a new brand called Turkington Rock. They are Ireland’s first design-led, luxury residential property developers.

In a recent interview Helen said: “The internal layout and design is not being focused on early enough in many developments. This is critical and it means we will deliver amazing homes that have been designed with families in mind.

They are currently working on a development of six new houses in Stepaside called Cairnfort Green, which is due for completion in early 2020.
