Three on release in high-end scheme
Cluain Mara, Kinsale, Co Cork
Cluain Mara, off Farm Lane in Kinsale, is a high-end scheme for a high-end town renowned for its gourmet seafood restaurants, sailing and golfing.
Built by Centurion Homes, the development is a 10 minute walk to the historic town centre. The 27-unit development was launched in April, followed by a series of small releases.
Savills quietly opened a showhouse in Cluain Mara at the end of January to market a new type of four-bed detached home now on release. Type C is a tad smaller than the type A four-bed detached style from a previous phase, but, at 1,818 sq ft, is still quite large. Prices start at €450,000, but there is currently only one available.
There is a living room to the front of the home and a large open-plan kitchen/dining area with a set of steps that leads down to an open-plan triple-aspect sunroom.
On the first floor, there is a master ensuite bedroom, a family bathroom and three other bedrooms. There is access from one of these bedrooms and from the landing to a balcony to the front of the property. There are seven homes in all left at Cluain Mara, though only three are actively on the market. In addition to the single type C home, there is No18 Cluain Mara, a three-bed mid-terrace from the E plan with 1,200 sq ft of space and a price tag of €295,000, and No20, a four-bed type D semi-detached home measuring 1,500 sq ft and costing from €395,000.
Of the remaining four units at Cluain Mara, one is the showhouse, which won't be sold until the rest of the scheme has been snapped up, and three, from the type C range, are open to offers but won't be finished until June at the earliest.
They feature contemporary-style kitchens with Silestone Carrera worktops and island units from Kube Interiors.
Energy-saving features at the A3-rated homes include triple-glazed windows and a modern heat pump system.
An open viewing at Cluain Mara will be held between 1.30pm-2.30pm on February 25.
