Carlow town has emerged as a centre for development of late with Barrowville joining Brownshill Wood and others to appeal to the first time buyer market along with the trader-uppers.
This development of 36 detached homes is at the higher end marketed at larger families needing a bit more space. Constructed by Nesselside Builders Ltd., there are four and five bedroom homes on offer. The four-bed is 1,660 sq ft and the downstairs layout maximises extra space given to a sun room off the kitchen/dining area, making it T-shaped and leading directly to the back garden. Worktops are granite. There are also two further reception rooms, one on either side of this double-fronted property. A guest WC and utility room make up the ground floor. The staircase joining the two is solid oak.
Upstairs are four bedrooms, the master is en-suite, and a family bathroom also. The finish is in a red-brick and dark yellow render with granite cills, feature railings in the garden and a cobble-lock driveway. This property is priced at €250,000. The five-bedroom is also double-fronted with a fanlight middle window on the first floor. It measures 2,100 sq ft and will sell for €325,000. The added extras here is an integrated garage which is accessed from the utility room. It has a similar layout to the four-bed otherwise and comes with a B3 energy rating.
