The Castlebridge project has homes for a variety of tastes.
Location: Elderwood, Castlebridge
Castlebridge is a village 8km from Wexford town where you will find Elderwood, a development of mixed styles from Noonan Developments, which was also responsible for constructing Redmond Cove in Wexford and Bartra Rock in Dalkey, Co Dublin.
Designed by Raymond Kelly Architects, the styles on offer range from two-bedroom mid-terraced properties, at 842 sq ft priced at €110,000, through three-bedroom semi-detached houses, which measure 1,155 sq ft and cost €135,000 with their detached counter-parts a little larger at 1,231 sq ft and priced at €150,000.
On the larger side are the four-bedroom detached homes, which measure 1,783 sq ft and cost €195,000.
In terms of layout, the three-bedroom semis come in two styles: the A (1,155 sq ft) and C (1,186 sq ft) with only slightly different interior plans.
Both have three bedrooms, the master en-suite along with the main bathroom upstairs.
While the downstairs of the 'C' style is traditional with the kitchen/dining area to the rear and the sitting room to the left/right of the front door, the 'A' style has the entrance in the middle of the property with the kitchen/diner to the left and rear while the sitting room is to the right. A downstairs WC completes both.
The 'B' style is a four-bedroom mid-terrace unit with a kitchen/dining room, utility room, sitting room and WC downstairs.
Upstairs are four beds, one en-suite with the bathroom.
The 'H' is the largest at 1,783 sq ft and is a detached property with four bedrooms, three doubles (one en-suite) and a single, while downstairs features a kitchen/dining area open plan and running the width of the house with a lounge and separate study upfront. The latter could easily be converted to a fifth bedroom should family needs decree it. It is priced at €195,000.
All homes include uPVC double-glazed windows and maple wardrobes in the bedrooms.
Castlebridge itself is a village with a number of retail units, overlooking Wexford Estuary.
The local beaches are Curracloe (9km) and Ballinesker, which is the same distance, and was the location shoot for the Normandy Landing scenes from the movie 'Saving Private Ryan'. Enniscorthy is 18km away while New Ross is 42km.
