Sixteen three-beds in Monasterevin
Moore Abbey Court, Monasterevin, Co Kildare
Monasterevin derives its name from the monastery founded there in the sixth century by St Eimhín (or Evin). A Gothic-style mansion called Moore Abbey was built on the site of the monastic settlement in the 1760s for the 6th Earl of Drogheda.
Moore Abbey Court, a small new development in the Co Kildare town, is a nod to this history. It is being developed by Aston Homes, the company responsible for Ashewood Walk and Aghnaharna in Portlaoise.
Moore Abbey Court consists of 16 three-bed homes. Four of the already completed properties will go on sale this weekend, and the remainder will go on the market as soon as each one is built. Each property has 1,378 sq ft of accommodation and a price-tag of €225,000.
The price includes all kitchen appliances, supplied by Telfords, and kitchen units and bedroom wardrobes supplied and fitted by John Hughes carpentry. The main bathroom has ceramic tiles to the walls and floors. Each house was designed to have an A3 energy rating, and there are three-zone heating controls throughout.
For commuters who buy at Moore Abbey Court, Monasterevin is just off the M7 and is 62km from Dublin, 14km from Newbridge and 21km from Portlaoise. A rail service connects to Heuston Station in 50 minutes.
