The Co Kildare commuter town of Naas has been a hive of building activity, with a slew of new developments over the last three years.
A year ago, Cairn Homes launched three and four-bed houses arranged around landscaped green spaces at Elsmore in Naas. This weekend, Cairn is releasing 12 apartments and duplexes at the development, with a second block of a further 12 units due to come on stream at a later stage.
The two-bed apartments in the initial tranche measure between 877 sq ft and 1,015 sq ft and are priced from €249,000, while the three-bed duplex homes have between 1,326 sq ft and 1,367 sq ft of living space and cost from €285,000.
The opening in August of the Devoy Link Road in Naas has enabled residents of Elsmore to walk, drive or cycle directly to the centre of the town. Cairn linked up with Kildare County Council to develop the road, pedestrian and cycling route.
Meanwhile, commuters can use the Luas stop at Saggart, the Naas/Sallins train station, or use the M7. The Elsmore sales office will be open for bookings from 2.30pm to 4pm tomorrow and Sunday.
