Located one kilometre from Naas town centre, past the ruins of Jigginstown Castle, a local landmark, is Ardstone Homes’ Castle Farm, a development of 178 houses that launched earlier this year and where 40 of its traditional two-storey houses have already sold.

The first 20 families have already moved into the estate, lured by price and by the fine showhouses fitted out by House and Garden Furnishings. 

The houses include smart peninsula-style kitchens and appliances, with a separate utility, supplied by Fitzgerald Kitchens, who also did the wardrobes.

The properties, designed by John Fleming Architects, have handsome proportions and are bathed in light thanks to the decision to go with larger than standard uPVC windows by Grady Joinery. These are two-tone, a trend gaining in popularity, where the fenestrations are an agate grey on the outside to match the granite composite sill and surround and white on the inside to merge with the painted walls décor.

Second phase

In this second phase, which launches Saturday, September 8th, there are terraced and semi-detached three- and four-bed houses for sale through joint agents DNG New Homes and Naas-based DNG Doyle.

Prices start from €305,000 for a three-bed mid-terrace house of 105sq m (1130 sq ft). This is up 4 per cent on launch prices last March. The end-of-terrace three-beds start from €320,000 and range in size from 106 sq m (1141 sq ft) to 108 sq m (1163 sq ft). Prices for this house style have increased about 5 per cent since launch.

Well-considered layout

The three-bed semis, of 112 sq m (1206 sq ft), are potentially the best buy, offering a well-considered layout with a large open-plan living/dining/sitting room and a decent-sized rear garden. Now asking from €335,000, prices here are up almost 4 per cent since launch.

Interestingly, asking prices for the four-bed semi, ranging in size from 132 sq m (1421 sq ft) to 140 sq m (1507 sq ft) remain at the same price as they were at launch, from €375,000.  

Naas has excellent connectivity with regular bus services to the city centre and a train time to Dublin’s Heuston station of 25 minutes from nearby Sallins, a five-minute drive.
