Jockey for position for 16 homes at The Paddocks
The Paddocks Newbridge, Co Kildare
Asking price: From €255,000
Agent: Coonan New Homes (045) 832020
The Paddocks development is in the heart of bloodstock breeding and racing country - it's located on the outskirts of Newbridge, near the Curragh.
Montane Developments, which launched the Station Road scheme in 2017, is building 200 properties at the site. A second phase of 30 two and three-bed houses was released in early May, and there are still 16 homes available from that tranche.
Prices start at just €255,000 for a 932 sq ft, two-bed semi-detached house. Three-bed semis measuring 1,152 sq ft cost from €277,000, while three-bed detached houses ranging in size from 1,279 sq ft to 1,293 sq ft are priced from €315,000.
The DDA Architects-designed development has a mix of façades, namely a full-brick front elevation or a monocouche render finish that adds variety to the streetscapes. Inside, each contemporary-style kitchen comes with soft-close doors and drawers. The A3-rated houses are equipped with a heat pump for the heating system and a demand-controlled ventilation system that removes moisture in the air from cooking or showering.
Newbridge itself is home to a slew of primary and secondary schools, most of which are located a short distance from The Paddocks. For commuters, Newbridge is just off the M7 bypass and is on the Dublin-to-Cork train line.
Viewings of the showhouses at The Paddocks will take place tomorrow, between 12pm and 1.30pm.
