Building bridges along Grand Canal
Finlay Park, Naas, Co Kildare
The names of the house types at Finlay Park may sound familiar to observant Naas residents - they are all called after bridges that traverse the Grand Canal in the commuter town.
The Westar Group-built scheme, which is perched along the banks of the canal, was launched in September 2016 and the final phase of 14 homes was released last weekend.
Prices for the last tranche start at €385,000 for the Connaught, a four-bed semi-detached style with 1,540 sq ft of living accommodation spread across three floors. The Digby, a two-storey four-bed detached design measuring 1,500 sq ft, costs from €485,000. In the latter style, the main entrance is to the side, opening up space for a large front living room.
The exterior of the timber-framed homes is traditional in appearance: full-brick facade, granite to the windowsills, and iron railings surrounding the front garden and cobblelock driveway. Interior finishes include a contemporary-style feature staircase, a sealed wood-burning stove in the living room, and a fitted and tiled kitchen. There are fitted wardrobes to all the bedrooms.
The A-rated, low-carbon homes have solar panels to the roof to heat domestic water, which is then stored in a large cylinder, as well as high-performance, low-U value windows and external doors. A condensing gas boiler with multi-zone controls reduces energy wastage.
Finlay Park is just a short drive from the M7 interchange and the Sallins train station. The Arrow rail service to Dublin takes about 30 minutes during peak times.
Viewings will be held between 12pm and 3pm tomorrow and Sunday. Enquiries to: Dillon Marshall New Homes (01) 496 7574
