Maoilin on Ballymoneen Road

Maoilín, Galway’s newest residential development consisting of 73 contemporary homes, will see its first phase released into the market early July.

This is the first example of building to this scale in Galway for the last seven years and the developer says Maoilín is meeting a fundamental need for quality, affordable, sustainable family homes in the city.

Developed by Michael Burke and built by Burkeway Homes in conjunction with renowned architects McCauley Daye O’Connell, Maoilín is located on the Ballymoneen Road in the prosperous and thriving suburban area of Knocknacarra.

All houses are A-rated and include fully fitted kitchens.

Designed for families, the overall development consists of two, three and four bedroom semi-detached and detached homes complimented by a large central green, children’s play area and carefully designed landscaped areas.

Phase 1 will comprise of three and four bedroom houses starting from €239,500.

Speaking about the development, Michael Burke, Managing Director of Burkeway Homes, emphasised that “the houses are all A-rated and finished to the highest quality standards”.

“Energy efficient specifications include solar panels, thermal insulation, heat recovery systems and high efficiency gas boilers as standard,” he said.

He noted that these features will result in low running costs, making the houses very attractive to families and first time buyers who want to settle in Galway.

Maoilín also benefits from close proximity to both Galway city centre and easy access to West Galway.

Knocknacarra boasts a range of local amenities including two shopping centres, schools, leisure centres, public parks, sports facilities, restaurants and public transport.

Phase 1, comprising of 13 homes, will launch in July.

Clever home design maximises use of every inch of space

Number, 55 Palace Fields, Tuam

As an estate, Palace Fields requires little introduction to prospective housebuyers in Tuam. It has a reputation of being a family desirable place to live, a reputation earned by the quality of its houses, the desirability of its location and the sense of community it embodies.

Number 55 is a house that due to its design maximises every inch of space.

The ‘front’ door is to the side of the house and opens into a large hallway with downstairs toilet/cloakroom. The kitchen/dining area has double doors from the hall. The kitchen is a cook’s dream and a room where it is easy to imagine a family gathered around the table overlooking the rear garden or friends casually chatting around the convenient island unit. The floor is tiled with black tiles while the shaker units have quartz worktops. The Pyrolytic eye level oven, combi oven microwave and fridge are integrated and generous storage is provided by soft closing drawers and larder units. Open shelving and a modern extractor add charm and character to this room.

To the left of the hallway, the sitting room has two large windows framing the open green space to the front. This room has a solid oak floor, an open fireplace with a cast iron inset. A large single storey room to the side of the house has been imaginatively divided to accommodate a small but very convenient home office to the front and a good sized playroom to the back. The playroom is shelved and includes patio doors which invite little people to play in the back patio or further into the well-kept lawn.
