Amongst the trees in Newbridge
Barretstown Meadows, Newbridge, Co Kildare
This development in the suburbs of Newbridge, near the Curragh plains, comprises six styles of house, all of which are named after a different species of tree.
Three of those house types are available in the final phase of Barretstown Meadows.
The scheme was originally launched in 2006 and about half of the 67 units were sold before the property market collapsed, prompting the developer to close the site. Construction restarted two years ago and the last 12 units are now on the market.
The Maple is a four-bed detached property stretching out over 1,959 sq ft and costs €390,000, while The Cedar is a slightly smaller, four-bed detached house with an area of 1,800 sq ft, priced from €370,000.
The Chestnut is a four-bed semi-detached dwelling laid out over 1,600 sq ft, with prices starting at €295,000.
There is a showhouse for the latter open for viewing tomorrow, between 12pm and 1pm, but visitors can also see the other house types.
Buyers will have a choice of paint colours, wardrobes and kitchens. The living room and hall both have a coved ceiling and all of the doors are solid painted timber.
There is moulded skirting and architrave throughout, and tongue and grooved flooring upstairs.
The Maple house has both a living room and a dining room, as well as a study.
The exterior features include cream-painted windows with a coloured render plastered-facade.
There is a cobblelock driveway and seeded garden out front. French doors open from the kitchen to the rear garden. Barretstown Meadows is a short walk from Newbridge and its Arrow rail station.
It is a 50 minute drive from Newlands Cross and the M50, and a one-hour drive from Dublin City Centre, traffic permitting.
The Dominican school and Newbridge College are about half a mile from the estate, while the Kildare Village Outlet centre, which sells designer goods at reduced prices, is five miles away.
