County town may lure in commuters
Caisleán Mainéar, Navan, Co Meath
The addition of new developments to Navan - one of the few towns in the world with a palindromic name - had lagged behind that of Co Meath towns closer to the Co Dublin border, such as Ashbourne. But a handful of new estates have started to come on stream in the county town last year.
These include Caisleán Mainéar, a development being built on an elevated tree-lined site in the Navan suburb of Athlumney. Of the 19 four- and five-bed properties launched at Caisleán Mainéar last summer, eight are still on the market, with prices ranging from €395,000 to €495,000.
The Kentstown Road scheme is a five-minute walk both from Navan town centre and the River Boyne. The homes are contemporary in style, with a fashionable grey to the hardwood front door, PVC facia, triple-glazed uPVC windows, and rear patio sliding doors, all complemented by brick detailing to the mostly white-rendered façade. The front driveway is laid with paving from Kilsaran's Newbridge range.
The internal finishes include contemporary skirting and architraves, floor tiling to the hall, kitchen and utility, a contemporary-style kitchen with hardwood doors and quartz worktops and upstands, and fitted wardrobes to three of the bedrooms - including the walk-in wardrobes to the master bedroom.
Commuters who travel from Navan to Dublin city centre can use a regular bus service, get the train from Dunboyne - a 20-minute drive away - or drive to the M50, which takes 25 minutes when traffic is light.
Viewings at Caisleán Mainéar are by appointment.
