Making your way to bend in the river
Brocan Wood, Monasterevin, Co Kildare
Monasterevin, the dormitory town near the Kildare/Laois border, was built on a right angle bend off the river Barrow. Not far from the Barrow, just off the town's Dublin Road, a second phase of homes is being released.
The release at the 117-unit scheme is being developed by local company Masonbrook Holdings. The selling agent for Brocan Wood expects the new tranche to contain about 25 terraced, semi-detached and detached homes, depending on demand. Prices range from €228,950 to €294,950. The smallest house type is a three-bed townhouse measuring 1,076 sq ft, while the largest is a four-bed detached style with 1,571 sq ft of accommodation. The facades of the block-built houses are finished in a mix of brick and render, materials that are complemented by triple-glazed UPVC windows. There is a double driveway and a garden out front, and a garden out back with a block wall boundary.
Interior features include extra-high 9ft ceilings and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. The A2-rated homes are just a two-minute drive from the M7 motorway. The rail service to Dublin takes 45 minutes. Viewings between 3pm and 5pm on Sunday. Enquiries to: REA Brophy Farrell (045) 431327
