TV show putts golf resort homes in spotlight
The Brennan brothers' TV programme, At Your Service, recently brought a new lease of life to the St Helen's Bay Golf Resort near Rosslare, Co Wexford, which is owned by the Byrne family.
The TV broadcast coincides with four of the owners in the resort selling their holiday homes. With 97.5sqm of accommodation, the three-bedroom semi-detached bungalows are priced between €95,000 and €125,000.
Prices vary depending on location, condition and how much they benefit from the sun.
As well as three large bedrooms including en suite masters, there is a kitchen diner and a sunroom which opens on to a patio.
Aside from the golf and beautiful beach, it is the array of additional child friendly facilities at St Helen's that sets it apart from other holiday and golf locations.
Its Rosslare Activity Centre with its 12 Challenge Assault Course has a zip wire, wall climbing, high ropes course, archery and canoeing.
There are 380 holiday home dwellings situated around the golf course and beaches and all are already in private ownership.
Auctioneer Stephen Barry of Sherry FitzGerald Haythornthwaite says the large bedrooms provide sufficient room to cater for extended families who like to enjoy holidays with young cousins. "I have seen some of these homes sleep up to 10 people," he adds.
The houses also have extra storage space for all those fishing rods, golf clubs and other sports and leisure equipment.
To help pay for the holiday home, the clubhouse will provide a full service for short-term holiday lettings.
Rents range from €200 a week in the winter to €800 in the peak season.
St Helen's is a safe environment for children, with several playgrounds, tennis courts and vast green areas connected by a network of private roads.
The development is 10 minutes' drive from Wexford town.
All houses are on view this Saturday from 11.30am to 2pm. Call Sherry FitzGerald Haythornthwaite on 053 9146046.
