The Paddocks, Newbridge

Hi All

Just went Sale Agreed on a 3-bed semi house in the 1st Phase of The Paddocks in Newbridge. Has anyone else been to view the development? What are your thoughts?

Moving out of Dublin to go there and the commute doesn't look too bad for the frequent train service.

Looking forward to finally living in a house that we own

We have been thinking about the Paddocks.
Haven't gotten a viewing yet, but went by the site on the 26th and had a stroll around.
It's definitely our first choice but we still need to find out if any 4-beds are left.

dragon5678, did they give you an estimated date of completion?

Hi SusyCares

Our house is already completed and ready to move into. Currently at the contract stage and we have our loan pack.

You should give the EA a shout to arrange a viewing. I don't know if i can post names/phone numbers here but the information about The Paddocks is up-to-date on Daft.

Thanks

Hi dragon5678,
Thank you.
we heard back today from the agent.
We will look to get a viewing in soon. They still have some of the units left that we are interested in, in the current phase.

Still going back and fourth with Revenue to get the H2B sorted though.

Are there any management fees in this new estate?

Hi guys whats the story with these houses, when are people moving in? I passed by there today and they still seem to be still building houses. Will there be a new entrance onto station Road or is the entrance through the meadows estate?

Hi Silverview

I went to the house were buying a few weeks back and it looks like our neighbours have already moved in as they had the bins out.
We've signed our contracts yesterday and looking for a closing date of a few weeks so hopefully it happens.

For the entrance, you currently have to go through the meadows. The through road to station road is partially there as a road to an apartment block. There going to have it ready in about 2 years I was told

I bought a house in that development and I think it’s a good choice. As some of you mentioned it’s a great location since it’s close to the station. Plus Newbridge has a lot of amminities and it is not just your typical commuting town.
Silverview, I would like to think that the road that joins the state to the train station will be done earlier than 2 years. The site between the apartment blocks and the paddocks its own by a different developer than Montane (paddocks’ builder). They got planning mid October for building another apartment block in that site and a planning condition was to build that road. I would hope it’s ready in the next year!!

Regarding commuting to Dublin it all depends where you go. I commuted to Dublin south side for years and I never realized how bad it was until I stopped doing it during my maternity leave. My bus was leaving at 7:15a.m. And I was getting there on the good days at 8:50. On the bus /car you always depend on traffic,road works,accidents... my husband has done easier commutes up to the red cow. Those are easy And under the hour. The best it’s the train . If you have a job in Dublin close to pearse, Tara or Connolly you are in business. In 50’ you are in and you can work/ relax on the train. We both tried it and so far it has been great. At the moment there is a petition to reduce rail fares for Newbridge . The idea is to add Newbridge in the Short Hop Zone as Naas and Kilcock. So if you are thinking to use the train might be useful to sign the petition.

Dragon5678 and Silverview are you both living there? My house it’s not finished yet. How long from snagging to moving in?

Hi Thurn

We actually did our snag on Monday and they started on it Today. All going well, looking to close in 2 weeks

I was already optimistic when buying the house so already have my Newbridge to Connolly TaxSaver since January. Really helped when I was going out there. At least the heuston yo Connolly work on the luas to get to work so not paying for an extra ticket.

Great! Two weeks is so close.
I hope mine can be as fast.
I drove in yesterday and the place was full of people working on the snagged houses after 5.pm. So perhaps you might even move sooner!!

Hi. We have bought in The Paddocks too. We bought one of the 3 bed townhouse. We are being told we can do our snag this coming week or next week. Really hoping to be in by the end of this month.

Yup it's really close. When we went Sale Agreed, the house was already completed. It was one of the ones along the showhouse stretch (but not a showhouse of you get what I mean) so it was good to go back in November when we placed the deposit.

Just sorting the insurances for the mortgage. Have life done and waiting on closing to set the date on the home. Should know more on Tuesday
