DNG Duncan launch Saunders Bridge development

It’s been a while since the market launch of any new development in Mullingar – which means there is a sense of excitement about the launch by DNG Duncan of Phase 1 of the rather super Saunders Bridge development on the Ardmore Road, Mullingar.

Top billing has to go to the fact that these homes have an A2-rating for energy efficiency – something that is not a mere by-the-by consideration in these times of rising fuel and electricity costs. With underfloor heating at ground floor level and an air to heat pump, comfort is guaranteed while the boosted water supply will ensure ample water pressure throughout the house.

All detached, these homes enjoy the benefit of being in a highly sought-after location. They are within walking distance of Mullingar town centre, and of the newly constructed Holy Family Primary School. Access to the Royal Canal Greenway is only minutes away, and anyone who commutes will enjoy the convenience of easy access to both the N4 and the N52.

According to the auctioneers, these homes feature an excellent specification and level of finish throughout, and are built to an extremely high-quality standard.

The finishes are attractive: a classic brick façade to the front, with colour render to the sides and rear; sills of granite-style reconstituted stone and roof tiles of Roadstone Donard low profile concrete.

There is cobbled block paving to the front, and each home has two parking spaces. All front and back gardens are being levelled and seeded, with boundary demarcations of concrete posts and timber fencing. There is a concrete patio extending from the dining/living areas via French doors.

Inside, the walls, ceilings and joinery are painted throughout in a standard colour. There is an airy feeling to the downstairs rooms thanks to the fact that the ceilings are of extra height.

The internal ‘Seadec’ doors have chrome handles, locks and hinges; the front door, from Munster Joinery, comes with a multi-point locking system and the windows throughout are high performance Future Proof 1.2 U Value double glazed windows from Munster Joinery in Chalk shade.

In the kitchen, the units are painted Shaker-style. By Fearon Developments, they feature quartz worktops, upstands and a recessed drainer. Electric hobs are included and fitted utility rooms with sink area where applicable.

High quality Sonas sanitary ware and elegant vanity units have been used in the en-suite and bathrooms.

Fearon Developments were also responsible for the elegant fitted wardrobes. The houses have smoke/heat, carbon monoxide detectors and fire alarms fitted, and they are wired for intruder alarms. They are also wired for phone and broadband and have data outlets in living areas and master suites. They are also car charger future proofed.
