Hollybrook Homes, renowned for their quality and integrity within the building industry in the United Kingdom and Ireland, are delighted to bring the Mount Stewart estate near the centre of Portlaoise to the market through Hume Auctioneers.
Mount Stewart is just off the Stradbally Road in Portlaoise, close to the hospital and near a number of the town’s local schools.
The initial planning of phase one of the site started earlier in 2019, with the focus being on delivering homes that reached the eco-standard many buyers expect from new builds.
With the environment and energy efficiency in mind, the result is a sleek finish and a high BER rating, with the houses in Mount Stewart offering buyers optimal living space, storage space, and a location close to valuable local amenities including schools such as Holy Family Junior School, Holy Family Senior School, Educate Together, Maryborough National School and Gaelscoil Portlaoise.
The development offers an idyllic setting for those wishing to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Midlands life, as well as the convenience of being accessible to major routes with the M7 close by for commuters (Dublin 48 minutes by Car and 41 minutes by Train).
Showhomes at Mount Stewart
The first phase of showhomes are launching on the weekend of October 5th and 6th and have been designed by renowned interior designer and staging specialist Natasha Rocca Devine.
Also known as “The Interiors NRD”, Natasha has worked on many prestigious developments within Ireland and internationally and brings her luxurious and distinctive style to Mount Stewart so that prospective buyers can imagine what living is like in one of these stunning homes.
Speaking of her work on the showhomes in Mount Stewart, Natasha says; “Working with the talented team at Hollybrook Homes on an array of showhomes in Robswall by Hollybrook, Malahide, I am delighted to have been chosen to design Hollybrook’s showhome in Mount Stewart.
“As a staging specialist, it is my job to show people what potential these houses have with beautiful interiors added. What struck me initially when I saw the project, was the quality of the build and the amount of light these homes offer, which is rare nowadays.
“The beauty of newly built homes is you get the benefit of energy efficiency mixed with modern design and for people looking for houses in turnkey condition, this is where homes like Mount Stewart stand out.”
Natasha adds; “When I went to the drawing board with what I had in mind for the showhomes at Mount Stewart, I wanted understated, classic contemporary luxury while using Cole & Son renowned wallpapers from London to integrate the Hollybrook UK influence into this traditional setting.
“I’ve also added quality Irish brands and investment pieces like signature sofas and gilt-rimmed shelves and coffee tables contrasted with thick rugs and throws to show viewers what kind of home they can live in.
“I always include accessories like mirrored trays and stacks of books to give showhomes that lived-in effect so people can imagine what their everyday life could be like here.”
A location perfect for families and commuters
Laois based Hume Auctioneers are the agents behind the development, and they are delighted with the interest expressed in this development already.
Speaking about Mount Stewart, John Dunne, Director of Hume Auctioneers says: “The level of interest in this development is fantastic to see. I think a lot of new buyers are now looking for that high BER rating and energy efficiency when buying a home. Factors like this alongside the location and access to local amenities is incomparable in Portlaoise.
“There are five primary schools close by, shops such as Laois Shopping Centre and also Portlaoise Town Park, so Mount Stewart offers a superb family environment.”
With Portlaoise becoming an increasingly popular place for commuters to live, those working in larger cities around Ireland will be interested in Mount Stewart’s accessibility to the M7 as well as being able to reach Dublin within 41 minutes by train and under an hour by car.
