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.”
