Home hunters at every level have a budget that they have to work within, yet the property portals show increasing numbers of new-homes schemes shown as price on application (POA). While developers are challenged by rising material costs and labour shortages, it does make it difficult for would-be buyers to determine whether the scheme that has caught their eye is within their financial reach.

It takes a lot of legwork to get agents to reveal pricing. In our time-poor world, here are six worth noting that give you an indication of the costs.  

1. Price: Three-bedroom houses from about €350,000

Address: Kilcarbery Grange, Clondalkin, Dublin 22

Commute distance to Dublin city centre: Clondalkin’s Fonthill train station is an eight-minute drive, as is the Luas Red Cow stop with a journey time of about 27 minutes from Fonthill to Connolly. Buses 51 and 13 stop at the gates. O’Connell Bridge takes about 55 minutes.

Kilcarbery Grange is a hugely significant and exciting development, says michael Whelan of Maplewood Homes. The 72-acre publicly owned site is being developed by Adwood, a joint venture of the Maplewood and Grandbrind Groups, in close partnership with South Dublin County Council, with 30 per cent of the homes being used for public housing. The residential element of the scheme will be built around a new village centre with community retail and creche facilities, and it borders Corkagh Park, one of the largest green spaces in the country. The development has been designed by BKD Architects, with 30-40 homes launching from plans in the coming weeks through DNG New Homes.

While final numbers and prices are still to be agreed, its three- and four-bedroom houses, from about 114-150sq m (1,227-1,615sq ft), will cost about €350,000-€400,000, says Whelan, with first completions in either Q1 or Q2 of next year. In total the development will deliver 1,034 new homes, with a programmed build-out of about four years.

2. Price: From about €440,000 for a four-bed, mid-terrace house

Address: The Heath, Adamstown, Co Dublin

Commute distance to Dublin city centre: 16-minute train journey to Heuston Station.

Adamstown offers great connectivity to the city centre. The Heath is a new development of sizeable four-bedroom homes by Quintain, whose 17-acre site will deliver 159 houses and 76 apartments. The development, designed by London-based Allies & Morrison LLP Architects, is between Airlie Park and Tandy’s Lane Park. This launch phase of 15 four-beds is of mainly mid-terrace and semi-detached homes, with one end-of-terrace and one detached house. Pricing for the 152sq m (1,636sq ft) mid-terrace homes start at €440,000. The end-terrace units are the same size, while the semis are slightly smaller, at 148sq m (1,593sq ft), and start from €465,000. The detached houses are 154sq m (1,658sq ft). The estate has good bus services and easy access to the M50, N4 and N7.
