Harpur Lane, Leixlip, Co. Kildare Asking Price: from €400,000 Brokers: Coonan (01) 628 6128 & Hooke & MacDonald (01) 631 8402
Arpur Lane is a new development with a historical background. The entrance shares the same lime tree lined avenue as Leixlip Gate, which was once a gateway to the Castletown Estate. With the park grounds and lawns of the great house open to the public, residents of Harpur Lane have an impressive garden on their doorstep.
The program was named after Thomas Harpur, who founded a cotton and linen factory in the town. He was known worldwide and some of his prints can be seen today at the National Gallery and the Chicago Art Institute.
The Cairn-built houses on Harpur Lane are a mix of two, three and four bedded rooms. Prices for the two beds (923sq ft) start at €400,000; triple rooms (1,248 square feet) start at €455,000; and the four-bed rooms (1,440 m²) cost from €570,000.
All houses have an A2 energy efficiency class, which is due to the building’s high level of insulation, a heat pump system and high-performance windows.
The kitchens are modern in style with quartz worktops as standard. Shaker style wardrobes will be fitted in all double rooms and bathrooms will be tiled.
Subtle touches like higher ceilings, grooved architraves and baseboards, and brushed satin hardware give the homes that extra edge.
A retractable attic ladder will be installed in all homes and smoke detectors will be placed throughout. The engineered wood front doors are equipped with a multi-point locking system and there is a power supply for a burglar alarm control panel.
Harpur Lane caters to first time buyers and young families. The wide range of crèches, primary and secondary schools in Leixlip will certainly play a role when shoppers do their research in the area.
The village has Aldi, Supervalu, Lidl and Eurospar for shopping and the Salmon Leap Inn, Da Vinci’s Italian Restaurant and the Court Yard Hotel for socializing.
A journey into Dublin city center takes half an hour, or residents can catch a train from nearby Louisa Bridge Station.
The show house can be visited tomorrow from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Contact Coonan New Homes (01) 628 6128 or Hooke & MacDonald (01) 631 8402 for more information.
