Homes from Phase 4 and going forward, that have their own off street parking, will have their own e-car charge point located on the exterior of their new home. With the country moving closer to near zero every day, we feel this is an important addition to make our new homes future proof new homes. For a list of the homes in the current phase, that come with a chargepoint as standard, click here.

Bathrooms and Ensuites
Each new home in Castleoaks, comes with stylish sanitary ware from TilenStyle in Carlow. All en-suite’s have a large shower tray and each main bathroom will have either a shower over the bath or a separate shower and bath, depending on house type.
Every home comes fully painted as standard. Gone are the days of boring Magnolia. At Castleoaks, we have looked at whats current and decided to paint each house throughout with a modern, Apron Grey. In the living/sitting room, the chimney breast wall features a deeper Spit Stone Grey. All architrave, skirting and doors throughout are glossed in a crisp white, while the stairs features a varnished oak handrail with white glossed spindles and string. If you decide our selected colours are not for you, don’t worry. You can meet with our decorating team and organise to discuss your needs or you can simply take our generous painting allowance.
Each house is wired and fitted with an intruder alarm, giving you one less thing on your list when moving into your new home and giving you and your family peace of mind, that your new home will be secure, right from the moment you move in.
A combination of brick and render finishes, future proof low U-Value PVC windows and coloured composite front doors together with aluminium fascia and soffit gives the high standard finish to match the high standard specification inside every home at Castleoaks.
High levels of insulation incorporated into walls, roofs and floors work hand in hand with high efficiency heating systems to give warm, cosy, energy efficient homes for you to enjoy for many years to come.
Mechanical Venitaltion System with Heat Recovery (MVHR)
With a MVHR unit, fresh air is continuously drawn into your home via a low energy heat recovery ventilation unit located in the roof space. The ventilation unit filters air to remove pollutants and insects. Once passed through the heat exchanger within the ventilation power unit, the warm, clean, frash filtered air is distributed around your home through a series of vents, which are run to each habitable room, i.e. living room, bedroom, etc. To learn more about your MVHR unit watch a short video here
Taking the latest construction designs and focusing on detail, improved air tightness works together with the MVHR to retain heat, reducing heat loss and minimising exposure to the elements.
Concrete First Floor
Replacing the conventional timber first floor with precast concrete slabs, improves the thermal mass of the building as well as reducing noise levels and providing a more solid structure
Air/Water Heat Pump
The dwelling is heated by means of an external air/water heat exchanger. This is a highly efficient heating system replacing your conventional oil or gas fired burners and the need for solar thermal panels to provide your hot water supply. This system will leave you with just one bill (electricity) and will provide your heating and hot water on demand all year round.
Coupled with the use of the air/water heating sytem, each house has zoned, programmable, underfloor heating throughout on both ground and first floor. Under floor heating gives a comfortable even heat throughout the home and frees up wall space for furniture etc.
Each home comes fitted with a highly efficient, room sealed, insert stove in the sitting room as per showhouse. A room sealed stove ensures your home gets sufficient air from outside, to function correctly, while maintaining the airtight envelope of your home.
Building Energy Rating (BER)
Using the combined expertise of ourselves here at JC Brenco Ltd., our engineers at PDS and our energy consultants at 2EVA, we have created extremely energy efficient homes. Each home in the Castleoaks development will be “A” Rated and individual certs can be viewed on request.
Not all developments include for something as simple as this but when Christmas comes and the evenings are damp, you’ll be glad all you have to do is pull down your attics stairs, hit the light switch in your attic and away your go with the decorations.
