Taste of village life in pastoral setting
Fan Glas, Kilmeaden, Waterford
Kilmeaden is the original home to its eponymous cheddar cheese, though production moved to Co Kilkenny a decade ago. But this quiet pastoral setting still holds an appeal to house-hunters keen on village life.
SE Construction (Kent), a family owned business that's been building homes in Waterford since 1970, is selling the second and final phase of Fan Glas at Kilmeaden, which is seven miles outside Waterford city. After completing 56 homes during the first phase, the company built 13 houses around two cul de sacs north of the existing development.
There are two units still for sale in the three-bed semi-detached format, which is laid out over 1,180sq ft and priced at €179,000. There is also one 1,400 sq ft four-bed semi-detached house on the market and three four-detached properties from €255,000.
The homes come with an energy rating of A3, thereby reducing the cost of running the properties. The developer says that solar energy provides free heating for between six and seven months of the year.
SE Construction (Kent) has made a show house available for viewing and is handling sales directly. The developer is also starting to market a new development at Knockenduff, Tramore, Co. Waterford, with prices starting at €180,000.
