The Paddocks, on the outskirts of Newbridge, is so named because of its location beside the Curragh and near the heart of bloodstock breeding and racing country.
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 at the start of this summer, and there are still about 10 homes available from that tranche.
All the €255,000 two-bed homes in the latest release have sold out, so the remaining properties are all three-bed semi-detached and detached houses. Starting prices for the semi-detached, 1,152 sq ft three-bed styles range from €275,000 to €280,000, while a detached version with 1,279 sq ft of space costs from €325,000.
The DDA Architects-designed development has a variety of façades that nicely mixes up the streetscape: some styles have a full-brick front elevation, while others have a monocouche render finish. Inside, there is a contemporary-style kitchen with soft-close doors and drawers.
The A3-rated houses at The Paddocks are equipped with a heat pump 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 are by appointment.
