Ballymore has launched its new ‘River Walk’ development. It is located in the idyllic village of Ballymore Eustace in Co. Kildare, where Ballymore built its first home over 40 years ago and provided the company with its name. The development will feature 80 energy-efficient homes, all within walking distance of Ballymore village and a mere 45-minute drive from Dublin.
The 80 new homes on the banks of the River Liffey are a mix of two-bed contemporary interpretations of the typical Irish cottage priced from £400,000 and three- and four-bed homes designed for the modern family priced from £430,000 and £495,000, respectively. Each house will feature stunning interiors, quaint gardens, and open floor plans. The interiors at River Walk are designed to pay homage to tradition while also embracing the modern.
The quaint two-bed cottages at Ballymore Eustace feature black granite worktop finish, traditional painted panelling, traditional brass and enamel bathroom fixtures, and quality Irish craftsmanship throughout that all speaks to the past. Grand windows, open living, volumetric space, striking lighting and luxury appliances such as high quality Smeg fridge freezers ensure the cottages also celebrate contemporary living.
The larger homes exude character and charm reflected through their modern design, with fully designed contemporary kitchens and features such as high-quality brass fittings, sliding door options and terrazzo style wall and flooring as well as feature painted staircase balustrades with solid oak handrails. The architectural styles throughout the development celebrate the diversity of the architecture and the use of local artists complements the interiors to demonstrate authentic modern Irish living. Each home is also appointed with two parking spaces.
River Walk boasts fantastic sustainability credentials, with all homes built to an A rating for energy efficiency. Each home features well-insulated walls, floors, and roofs as well as an air-to-water heat pump system that provides domestic hot water and efficient heating, serving wall-mounted radiators and excellent indoor air quality due to mechanical ventilation.
Linda Mulryan, Deputy Managing Director at Ballymore, said: “River Walk is a long-awaited homecoming for us some 40 years after starting our journey in Ballymore Eustace. The village has a special place in my heart and our primary goal with this development has been to ensure the village thrives in the future, not just by retaining its magic but by having the capacity to welcome a new generation of locals.
“As is the standard for all our developments, River Walk homes embody exceptional design and build. We have invested a great amount of time into tastefully integrating the new homes so that they are not only an extension of Ballymore Eustace but also a great addition to the historic village.”
A perfect place for those that value a village lifestyle in the countryside, River Walk offers plenty of great experiences for locals right at their doorsteps. The walks and trails along the banks of the Liffey are a year-round favourite among the amblers and runners of Ballymore Eustace, while on the water, rowers, kayakers, paddle boarders and the odd wild-bather frolic. The surrounding area has a rich equestrian history, so tracks and horse facilities are also close at hand. The area is home to numerous sporting ovals, various outdoor courts, and even a water ski club so locals always have plenty to occupy themselves with. River Walk is also the perfect community for families, with the local school and many of the village amenities just a short walk from the new homes.
The development is ideal for workers who follow a hybrid working schedule and want to embrace the tranquillity of the Irish countryside while also maintaining a very commutable distance to Dublin. Ballymore is also home to ‘The Hub’, a fully equipped coworking space in the village which offers a state-of-the-art boardroom with video conferencing, a private phone booth, collaboration spaces, and photocopy and scanning needs for the modern remote worker. Residents of River Walk automatically become VIP members of ‘The Hub’ for the first year, which offers them the benefit of 30 complimentary days to use the hub workspaces as well as other exclusive discounts and benefits.
