10 Ferns Bridge homes left with more to come in May
Ferns Bridge, Monasterevin, Co Kildare
Due to its numerous bridges and a 19th century aqueduct that carries the Grand Canal over the River Barrow, the Kildare village of Monasterevin has sometimes been dubbed The Venice of Ireland. So it makes sense that Ferns Bridge, a scheme located a kilometre outside the village, would retain a bridge reference in the development's name.
Ten units are left from the most recent phase of the development: these are three-bed semi-detached homes and two-bed terraced properties, priced from €224,950 and €165,000, respectively. Buyers who are keen to live in the commuter village, but are seeking a larger home, can spring for one of the four-bed semi-detached or detached properties that Masonbrook Holdings, the developer of Ferns Bridge, is planning to launch in Monasterevin in May.
For now, prospective purchasers at Ferns Bridge could opt for a three-bed that measures 1,260 sq ft, but comes with the option of an attic conversion, bringing the accommodation up to 1,600 sq ft. At ground floor level, there is an L-shaped kitchen/dining room that has double doors leading out to the rear garden. There is a separate living room with a feature fireplace and electric insert to the front, with a guest WC off the hall.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is ensuite and there is a family bathroom also. Kitchens come from Gallaghers and the A-rated family homes have a thermal heat pump that provides a constant and cheap supply of hot water and heat.
Ferns Bridge is a five-minute walk from the train station, which serves Dublin city centre, while motorists can use the M7 and M9 motorways. Viewing at the development is by appointment.
