Barnhall Meadows – A chance to live in a ‘Wonderful Place’

The Wonderful Barn in Leixlip, Co Kildare, provides the perfect backdrop to the stunning Barnhall Meadows development by Glenveagh Homes.

Situated on the edge of Castletown House estate, formerly belonging to the Conolly family, the corkscrew-shaped building – which was built in 1743 – sits in front of these new architecturally designed, 2 and 3 bed homes which have prices starting from €320,000.

As well as providing a protected 4 acre parkland area right beside these fabulous new homes, the enchanting Wonderful Barn also forms part of the scenic 16km Arthur’s Way Heritage Trail which provides a superb walking, running or cycling route for local residents.

Barnhall Meadows takes its name from The Wonderful Barn and is further evidence of developers’ Glenveagh’s appreciation of the past. They might be a young company but they appreciate their history and even the brochures for this new development have been designed in such a way as to encapsulate the inside of the barn.

The Wonderful Barn is described as a fairy tale-style building and you can create your own wonderful story in Barnhall Meadows – a development which truly blends the best of town and country. The aforementioned walk and scenery brings peace and tranquility while Leixlip with its wide range of services and amenities – including two railway stations with regular links to the capital and further afield – has all you could ever need on your doorstep.

Following the hugely successful previous launch in Barnhall Meadows, Glenveagh Homes have now released new 2 and 3 bed semi-detached and detached houses to the market.
