Purchasers at Bellingsfield, a scheme in the Kildare commuter town of Naas, will have few excuses for skipping a workout: they all get free membership to the leisure centre at the nearby Killashee Hotel, a four-star hotel with a pool and fitness classes.
Sean Mulryan's Ballymore Group is developing Bellingsfield, which launched last year, near the hotel and beside Piper's Hill, another Ballymore scheme. Bellingsfield will comprise 243 homes when it's finished.
There are currently 17 homes available at the Naas scheme. The cheapest style is the Robin, a 1,082 sq ft three-bed semi-detached design that's priced from €300,000. The Foxglove - which, at 1,300 sq ft, is larger than the Robin - costs from €350,000. A four-bed semi from the Hazel house type, which measures 1,557 sq ft, is priced from €385,000, while the four-bed detached Skylark style, which spans 1,753 sq ft, has a €465,000 starting price tag.
Ballymore has used a combination of render with Ivanhoe or red-hued Viola brick detail for the facades of the homes. Each house has two parking spaces and a bespoke kitchen fitted with quartz worktops. An air-to-water heat pump system at the A-rated properties provides energy-efficient heating and domestic hot water.
Bellingsfield is 1.5km from the centre of Naas and a 15-minute drive from Newbridge. Commuters to Dublin can use the rail service from the Sallins and Naas train station. Viewings are by appointment.
