More new homes for Strandhill as estate launches another phase
NEW PHASE FOR KNOC NA RÍ ESTATE
[ PG 5]
Seventeen new homes are being built in Strandhill with a third phase of development just announced for the estate Cnoc na Rí.
Auctioneer David Reynolds who is handling the sales for the new housing development says the demand has been so great that planning permission was sought for a further 17 houses bringing the total number of units to 37.
David says: “The first and second phase of this development has sold out. There is now going to be a third phase. We have just got word that planning permission has been granted. These houses will be released before or just after Christmas.”
He says there is no price tag yet for the new units but predicts the cost of the new 2,3 and 4 bedroom homes will be similar those already sold.
“These A-rated homes built by RPC construction are affordable at between €200,000 and €260,000. We’ve had no problem selling them. In fact there’s been a waiting list.”
David says there is a mix of buyers from young couples to elderly people looking to downsize but he admits: “There are a few investors too just looking to rent.”
A second smaller housing estate of under ten units is almost complete next door to Knoc na Rí. Building in Strandhill is a profitable business but David says elsewhere in the county including Sligo town is a different story: “You won’t see building in those areas until house prices rise and we can cover the cost of the build.”
