Yeah it’s a pain, but when we bought the prices had gone up as well, I’m sure when another phase comes around they’ll up again, just the market that’s out there now unfortunately.

Hey guys, I'm just after putting my booking deposit down, think I'll be #2. I'm considering going with the turnkey package, it's an extra 10k but not sure. Any insight?

Good to finally hear some feedback from you all.

We got the turnkey service as standard originally. Were hoping to move in September. I think its something to do with the Kildare county council. To be honest, house insurance, life insurance and mortgage protection has me in a tizzy.

Haven't been down in a week or so, we snagged the other day, and there is quite a lot on the snag, and we sent it to Laurie today. To be fair, the whole process has been great and we couldnt be happier with the house etc. Almost to good to be true, but then again, we hoped to be in by now...

We’re in the same boat, snagged last week, list given to Laurie today, from what I hear it takes them a while to complete the snags, here’s to hoping they’re done soon, we should have been in by now, maybe September, hopefully no longer. There was over 100 things on our snag, but I’m
Told they’re only small things, so fingers crossed

That came as standard for me because I bought in the previous faze, what comes as standard for yourself? Maybe someone could help you out then with what the extras are

The difference from standard to turnkey is; Flooring included, skirting finished rather than just primed, bathrooms tiled rather than tiling allowance and choice of paint colours, rather than all rooms the same colour (which I wouldn't get any choice in so I'm assuming is white)

If I go standard I get a tiling allowance of €1.5k and there are no floors and the skirtings are only primed. For the reduction in hassle alone I'm thinking I'll just go with the package.

I know they say you have a choice of wall colour/tiles/carpets/wood floors etc. Just wondering for those of you who have picked these for their own house, was there many option of tile colours, floors etc?

Also, I don't get any appliances, and I'm not sure how that worked in earlier phases, but how do they do integrated kitchens without the appliances to integrate? [That's probably a stupid questions hahaha]

And for my future neighbors I am a 31 year old Dublin lady, buying on my own

In regards to flooring, there is a good bit to choose from, we didn’t get to choose the colours of each room, that would take a lot of hassle out of it, in our phase we got a 1500 Appliences allowance , I got all my own appliances tho. When it comes to picking out the kitchen you’ll be asked to pick Appliences from cash and carry kitchens, that’s the supplier of your kitchen, you don’t have to go with this, but maybe it would save a lot of the hassle doing it that way.

I’m 28 from Dublin moving in with my fiancé

I’ve no idea of measurements , we went with the “saxon” from DFS, we wanted to get a corner sofa, but we didn’t think it would really work in the sitting room because of where the doors are.

Anyone think the prices these are are a bit high? The green space in the estate is a little on the small side and location wise they will be a bit away from the new secondary school on the Athy road.

Brocan would seem similar or lower priced and more central.

Considering a 3 Bed semi in a nice estate could be had for 120K less than three years ago

Thanks Aaron yeah i reckon the only way to have a corner would be to close off the door in the sitting room . Are you in yet ??

Considering the market and how it is now all houses are overpriced. Unfortunately i only see them increasing if i bought this house in naas or newbridge it would cost me a 100k more.Feel sorry for people trying to buy

The pre school in oldgrange is good, but I can see it being difficult getting a place in future. Lots of new familys in the area, but it is good thing for the town. With the new primary and seconday schools on the way, the town is up and coming.

Sadly the tennis and sports club was refused permission which would have been massive for the kids in the town
