THERE A LOADS of financial benefits to buying a brand new home these days. For one you’re guaranteed an A-rated build, which means your bills will be inevitably lower. And if you’re a first-time buyer, most new developments work with the Help To Buy scheme, meaning you could get up to €30,000 off the purchase price – provided the house stays under the €500,000 mark.

If this sounds good to you, then take a look at Rath Ullord, a new development just outside Kilkenny city that’s made up of houses that start from €459,000.

Made up of detached and semi-detached houses, each one has a bright and airy layout with some offering up to five bedrooms. 

The open plan kitchen, sitting room and dining area ensures natural light pours in. Keeping things local, the kitchens are designed by Sinnott Kitchens of Kilkenny. The ground floor also comprises a spacious utility room, a guest toilet and a separate sitting room.

Chic and minimalist, these homes provide a workable canvas for any new homeowner. A number of features contribute to the high energy rating – including the large, double glazed windows and the air to water heat pump which provides hot water 24/7.
