An ideal place to raise a growing family
Beechpark, Leixlip, Co Kildare
Beechpark, a development in the north-east Kildare town of Leixlip, was designed with expanding families in mind: each has an attic that can be transformed into an extra bedroom or den at a later stage; Leixlip GAA is close by; and there is a crèche and Montessori on site.
Four homes are still on the market from the final tranche, released in May. Most of the homes in the 15-unit release overlook a large green space to the front and all have south or west-facing gardens to the rear.
Buyers who want the option of extending into the attic to gain extra living space can do so without any major costly structural alterations because the builders have added attic trusses and engineered the roof structure to create soft spots for Velux roof lights and a staircase.
Three of the four houses remaining at Beechpark are four-bed semi-detached properties with 1,426 sq ft of accommodation and starting pricetags of between €395,000 and €400,000.
There is also one five-bed version; it has 1,649 sq ft of space and costs from €435,000.
The development is a few minutes' drive from the M4 motorway at exit six, though commuters who buy at Beechpark can also use the train station at Louisa Bridge to reach Maynooth or Dublin city centre.
