A-rated homes full of light in Newcastle village
Description: First phase of a new development of 70 houses, launching with 20 three- and four-bedroom homes Agent: Sherry FitzGerald Newcastle, Co Dublin, may be just up the road from some of the capital’s highest-density developments, but it has managed to retain its village feel.
Castlechurch is a brand new development of 70 threeand four-bed houses by Barina New Homes. This is Barina’s first big development since the recession, apart from the recent completion of Brookwood, a small scheme of five large houses in Castleknock.
Its last big developments, completed in 2008, were Mayeston Hall, Finglas and Primrose Gate, Celbridge.
The light-filled A-rated homes were designed by McCrossan O’Rourke Manning Architects (MCORM) and include large windows by Munster Joinery and Samsung air-to-water heat pumps.
There are 20 units in phase one comprising three- and four-bed houses.
Nicola Pollard, of Pollard Design, fitted-out the show houses, and advised on floor plans and a lighting layout.
The three-bed townhouses measure 117sq m/1,266sq ft and prices start from ¤299,000. Prices for the three-bedroom semis, which range in size from 107sq m to 117sq m/1152sq ft to 1266sq ft, in size, start from ¤315,000 while the four-bedroom semis, which range in size from 131sq m to 136sq m/1419sq ft to 1,465sq ft, start from ¤365,000.
These prices don’t include appliances in the soft mink gloss kitchens supplied by Nolan Kitchens. The houses have a separate utility room, and wardrobes by Cawleys Furniture. They also have additional storage – a real boon in new homes – and the shower en suite in the main bedroom has a large window.
The three-bed semi is particularly considered. It features a light-filled dual aspect kitchen and two of its three bedrooms have recessed wardrobes.
The development is near a newly built national school and has good connectivity including a private bus service that connects Newcastle to the Luas at CityWest. The houses are for sale through SherryFitzGerald New Homes.
