Plenty of bang for your buck with Johnstown five-beds
Carne Wood, Johnstown, Navan, Co Meath
Thanks to development throughout the Celtic Tiger, Johnstown morphed from a country village two miles outside Navan to a suburb of the Co Meath town that became popular with locals working in the county and commuters to Dublin.
In 2006, during the peak of the boom, Carne Wood, a scheme of 21 homes, was built outside Johnstown.
After half of the houses were sold at the time, the developer, Laurence McLoughlin Ltd, decided to hold on to the remainder until the property market recovered.
Four were relaunched at the start of the year and there are presently a further nine on the market.
Buyers at the Royal County development will get plenty of bang for their buck: prices for the five-bed properties range from €395,000 to €420,000. However, they will have to spend extra on fitting out the homes with kitchen units and other items.
There are two house types available within the development, each measuring in excess of 2,500 sq ft, including a garage. Type A, the more expensive style, has a conservatory, family room, lounge, living room and kitchen/dining room on the ground floor.
Upstairs, two of the five bedrooms are ensuite, while another bedroom could be used as a study. Type B is quite similar, but doesn't have a conservatory and there are three, rather than two, ensuite bedrooms on the first floor.
Johnstown Village is off the M3 motorway and is 45km from Dublin. Viewing of Carne Wood is by appointment.
