Seaside builds with conversion-ready attic
Cois Na Mara, Bettystown, Co Meath
Cois na Mara, a development of family homes in Bettystown, benefits not only from its seaside location - buyers of the three-beds who will need extra space at a later stage can transform the conversion-ready attic into another room.
Developer Bernie Carroll from Carroll Estates Dublin Ltd, which built the nearby Brabazon and Castlemartin estates, said: "Next to the showhouse, we have a house done out with steps up to the attic so people can climb up and see what it's like.
"People buying nowadays are mindful that they may want more space at some stage so there is that opportunity for them here."
There are 17 houses in the first phase of Cois na Mara, which was launched last weekend, and there will be 88 homes in all when the scheme is finished.
Prices start at €237,000 for a three-bed semi-detached property, which measures 1,113 sq ft, and at €265,000 for a four-bed semi-detached home, which has 1,345 sq ft of living space.
There was one four-bed, 1,560 sq ft detached property in this phase but that has already been sold. The internal open-plan layouts maximise the penetration of daylight through the homes, lending a greater sense of space.
The kitchens are fitted with an integrated fridge-freezer, oven, hob and dishwasher, and the bathrooms and en-suites have power showers, as well as tiling to the wet areas. There are contemporary wardrobes in the bedrooms.
Extra finishing touches include painted doors with chrome handles and pendant light fittings. An A-rated gas condensing boiler powers the central heating system.
Cois Na Mara is directly across from Bettystown Golf Club and Tennis Club, and is just a few minutes' walk from the beach and the village. The nearest train station is at Laytown, where there is a park-and-ride facility for commuters. Motorists can avail of the M1 motorway to Dublin Airport, Belfast and the M50. Drogheda is about four miles away.
Viewings at the development will be held between 2pm and 4pm tomorrow and Sunday.
