Carlow three beds on the banks of the Slaney
Park Gate, Tullow, Co Carlow
Park Gate, a development of three- and four-bed homes, is situated on the banks of the River Slaney near market town of Tullow, Co Carlow.
The landscaped development, which fronts onto the Shillelagh Road and is close to the Co Wicklow border, was started in 2006 by a local developer. Thirty of the 98 planned houses were built before building ceased during the crash. The partially completed scheme was relaunched in the spring of 2016. Since then, the houses have been released in small batches at a time. Once the existing stock of 40 is complete, Smartisan Construction will start building new properties from scratch on the site.
For now, the agent is selling two four-bed detached properties with 2,000 sq ft of space apiece and a builder's finish. At €230,000, these may represent some value compared to the €390,000 that four-beds at Park Gate were selling for back in 2006.
There are three primary schools and a large secondary school in the area. The Mount Wolseley Hotel, Spa & Golf resort is on the outskirts of the town.
Park Gate is a 20-minute drive from Carlow town and 60 minutes from the M50 motorway in Dublin.
Viewings are by appointment.
