Three and four beds selling off the plans
Elsmore, Naas, Co Kildare
The Co Kildare commuter town of Naas has witnessed a plethora of new residential developments over the last year, including Bellingsfield at Piper's Hill, Stoneleigh and Castle Farm.
In September, Cairn Homes opened an information suite in the town to market Elsmore, a new scheme near Naas town centre. Showhouses for Elsmore, which will consist of three and four-bed family homes arranged around open green spaces, will likely open in mid-May, during the official launch.
At present, though, there are six three-bed homes and 11 four-beds selling off the plans at the development. Prices start at €295,000 for a 1,178-sq ft three-bed and at €340,000 for a four-bed measuring 1,776 sq ft.
Externally, the homes will be finished in a combination of brick and self-coloured render, with natural Portuguese limestone to the surrounds and sills of the UPVC high-performance, double-glazed windows. Each house will be fitted with a contemporary-style kitchen that comes with soft-close doors and drawers and integrated appliances, as well as a separate utility room.
Additional interior finishes will include extra-high ceilings to the ground floor, painted solid timber doors, contemporary grooved architrave and skirting, a pull-down attic ladder to the two-storey styles, and fitted wardrobes in double bedrooms.
The A3-rated homes will also be equipped with PV panels to generate additional electricity and a demand control ventilation system to automatically create a continuous supply of fresh air.
The new Devoy Link Road, due to be completed this year, will directly connect Elsmore with the centre of Naas.
Elsmore is a 20-minute drive - traffic permitting - from the Luas stop at Saggart and a seven-minute drive from the Naas/Sallins train station, from where the rail service to Heuston Station takes 17 minutes. The N7 connects Naas residents with Dublin and the M50 motorway.
