A three-year family membership to the leisure centre at the Killashee Hotel is aimed at sweetening the deal for buyers at Bellingsfield, a residential development near the four-star hotel.
Ballymore Group is developing Bellingsfield, which launched last year in the Co Kildare commuter town, beside Piper's Hill, another Ballymore scheme. Showhouses at Bellingsfield, which will comprise 243 homes when it's finished, will reopen this weekend to market the third phase of 28 houses.
The cheapest style in the latest tranche is the Robin, a 1,082-sq ft three-bed semi-detached design that's priced from €300,000 and targeted at first-time buyers. The Foxglove's 1,300 sq ft costs from €345,000. A four-bed semi from the Hazel type, which measures 1,557 sq ft, is priced from €385,000, while the four-bed detached Skylark, which spans 1,753 sq ft, has a €457,000 starting price tag.
Ballymore has used a combination of render and Ivanhoe or red-hued Viola brick to finish the front exterior of the homes. Each house has two dedicated parking spaces, and a rear patio and garden.
Inside, there is a bespoke kitchen fitted with quartz worktops. An air-to-water heat pump system at the A-rated properties provides energy-efficient heating and domestic hot water.
Bellingsfield is 1.5km from the centre of Naas and a 15-minute drive from Newbridge.
Viewings of the showhouses will be held between 1pm and 2:30pm tomorrow and Sunday.
