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.
