With views of an early Christian settlement
Yew Abbey, Drogheda, Co Louth
Tinure, a small rural village about 8km north of Drogheda, takes its name from the Irish term Tigh an Iúir, meaning 'house of the yew tree'. Near the Co Louth village is the 10th-century Muiredach round tower at the early Christian settlement of Monasterboice. So it's fitting that a new development in Tinure that commands views of the settlement is called Yew Abbey.
The upmarket enclave of just 11 large detached properties in three different styles is being built by DML Homes and was originally launched in September. After the first phase sold out, a second release of six houses followed in May and all six are still available.
Four of the units are four-beds measuring 2,600 sq ft and costing from €495,000, while the remaining two are 3,500-sq ft five-beds priced from €650,000. The exteriors of the four-bed style are in a painted render with natural slate to the roof and a hardwood front door. Inside, there are solid precast concrete floors and there is underfloor heating throughout. The fitted kitchens and wardrobes are hand-crafted by Christoff, though there is also a €15,000 allowance for the kitchens.
The A3 BER at Yew Abbey comes courtesy of a renewable energy heating system with customised zoned-heating controls and uPVC double glazed windows.
