The first phase of OakHill, a new development of contemporary-style homes in Gorey, proved so popular that all 16 properties in the release were reserved before the official launch earlier this month. As a result, the selling agent has begun to take bookings for the second phase of the sunny south-east scheme.
Built by Robeco Construction, the Wexford development will consist of 53 three and four-bed semi-detached and detached homes when the project is complete. The properties are being constructed on the grounds of a derelict period house, which will eventually be renovated and converted into an additional three new homes.
There are 21 homes available in the second phase. Prices start at €240,000 for a three-bed semi-detached home, which measures from 1,270 sq ft, while the four-bed version, which spans 1,550 sq ft, costs from €255,000. A four-bed detached home measuring 1,550 sq ft at OakHill is priced from €270,000, while prices for the larger version, with 1,722 sq ft of accommodation, start at €320,000.
The exteriors of the block-built homes are finished in a mix of white cement render, a nap render and dual-coloured render, with the black Tegral Supercem slates on the roof.
A protruding mono-pitch cantilever roof profile over a front balcony with stainless steel and glass railings adds an ultra-modern touch to the façade, making them standout compared to standard new builds in regional towns.
The rear gardens, which have a block boundary wall, are levelled and seeded, and to the front is a tarmacadam driveway with kerbing to the grass area.
Inside, the walls are painted with an Egyptian cotton finish. The kitchen is in a shaker-style, as are the custom-made wardrobes in the bedrooms.
The bathrooms, ensuites and ground-floor toilets have white sanitary ware. If the kitchen units and tiling are not to the would-be purchasers' tastes, they can avail of allowances.
Throughout each home at OakHill, there are contemporary-style two-panel doors and moulded skirting and architraves that have a white gloss finish, including on the balustrades and newel posts of each staircase. The A3-rated homes have an air-to-water heating system with underfloor heating on the ground floor and radiators on first.
The scheme is a short walk to the centre of Gorey, the town's railway station and Gorey Shopping Centre. The town itself is a 45 minute drive from the M50.
The showhouse is open for viewing tomorrow from 2pm-3.30pm.
