Fine design should always acknowledge the history and ambience of its surroundings. This new development in Abbeyleix does exactly that
ABBEYLEIX is one of the finest planned estate towns in the country with spacious tree lined streets and picturesque period houses. The town was founded by the de Vesci family in the mid-eighteenth century near the site of a 12th century Cistercian Abbey.
The de Vesci Hill development (no prizes for guessing why it has this name) is situated in the middle of the town and is being built in what is probably one of the last remaining sites in the area, combining convenience with privacy.
Built by PA Bello they have been sympathetically designed to capture all the essence of their location. Along with the estate landscaping and old world street lighting the small development of 29 homes is bound to appeal to house-hunters with class.
Carrying price tags which start at ?475,000, the houses have just gone on the market and already a number of them have been sold. These are traditionally built houses with floor areas of 198 sq.m. Window frames are in Scandinavian redwood timber and the hand crafted and hand painted kitchens are by County Kitchens of Ballymore Eustace.
The Show house kitchen is standard including the granite and timber worktop.
Each house has a high quality stone fireplace and bathrooms and ensuites come with high quality modern sanitary ware. All internal walls and ceilings are insulated for soundproofing.
These are family homes and close by are schools, shopping, medical services and all modern comforts. There is a thriving arts scene here and excellent sporting facilities, including golf.
Abbeyleix is just off the new M7 motorway, so is a comfortable drive to Dublin and there are also regular rail connections in nearby Portlaoise to both Dublin and Cork.
