Fully furnished showhouse remains
Chelmsford Manor, Celbridge, Co Kildare
The final four-bed semi-detached homes at Chelmsford Manor near the rolling north Kildare countryside went on the market in early October. All but one, the showhouse for the Celbridge development, have been snapped up.
The remaining property for sale is No12 Chelmsford Manor, a 1,586 sq ft fully furnished home. The four-bed detached residence is priced at €445,000.
During the 1990s, the country village of Celbridge became a target destination for commuters to Dublin, which is just 21km away. It may now be evolving into a dormitory town, but is blessed with a large amount of green space. There's Castletown Demesne, Ireland's largest provincial park, and cycling by the Liffey riverside or along the banks of the Grand Canal are popular amongst locals.
Chelmsford Manor, a mix of three and four-bed detached, semi-detached and terraced homes, was first launched in November 2014. The last home available at the 56-unit scheme has an exterior with a combination of brick and rendered block work, concrete roof tiles, and a sandstone finish to the front windowsills and window surrounds.
The double-glazed windows and the patio doors that open to the back garden are fitted by Carlson, and there are wrought-iron railings and cobble-locked driveways to the front.
Inside No12, there is a large living room on the ground floor with doors leading to the open-plan family/kitchen/dining room. There is also a guest WC and a utility room on this level. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms fitted with wardrobes by Bedroom Elegance, including one ensuite, and a family bathroom. The roof is fitted with attic-style trusses to facilitate extra storage space.
The house has been given an A3 BER thanks, in part, to the A-rated gas condensing boiler system that provides the central heating and the three solar panels on the roof that capture energy from the sun to produce hot water stored in a solar cylinder for use throughout the day and night.
A heat recovery ventilation system produces a constant stream of fresh air and reduces condensation and dust. The system also recovers heat energy from the air expelled from the house and uses it to warm the incoming fresh air.
Commuters can use the Hazelhatch Train Station to reach Dublin City Centre in 15 minutes or drive to the capital using the N4 access point to the M50 motorway.
