Commuter-town scheme has broad appeal for first-timers
Broadmeadow Vale, Ratoath, Co Meath
Broadmeadow Vale, a Co Meath development within walking distance of the commuter town of Ratoath, will especially appeal to first-time buyers and families priced out of Dublin.
The scheme, which launched in early March, is situated beside St Paul's National School and some of its house types have attics designed for an easy conversion.
When it's finished, the Sherwood Homes scheme will consist of 126 two, three, four and five-bed homes available as terraced, semi-detached and detached styles.
A second release, consisting of 13 houses, came on stream last weekend, and nine are still available. Prices for the three-beds range from €310,000 for a mid-terraced style to €325,000 for an end-of-terrace design.
There's also one four-bed on the market that has a large garden and a price-tag of €410,000, and there are three five-bed homes selling for between €495,000 and €510,000. The attics in the three and four-bed semi-detached styles can be converted at an extra cost.
Almost all the homes at Broadmeadow Vale will overlook an open green space.
The facades of the traditional-style houses are finished in a mix of red and yellow brick and monocouche coloured render, with high-performance double-glazed PVC windows from O'Grady's Joinery.
Each house type has a custom-designed fitted kitchen with quartz countertops, all supplied by Gallagher Kitchens, while all the four-bed semi-detached styles have separate utility rooms.
All the homes were designed to achieve an A3 BER and come with a Samsung air-to-water heat pump for the central heating and domestic hot water system.
Broadmeadow Vale is a 10-minute drive in light traffic from the Dunboyne/M3 Parkway train station, from where there are rail services to Dublin Docklands and to Connolly Station.
Viewings of the showhouses at Broadmeadow Vale can be arranged by appointment.
