Quick question, in the ensuite is there supposed to be a token tile at the sink or is it just floor and shower tiled as standard?

Thanks...

Also, if anyone bought a 3-bed in the last phase (Beresford Court), what date were you given for moving-in?

Hi there, we put a deposit down on a house in the most recent phase but haven't received contracts yet. We were told there was a slight delay but thought we would have them by now, hoping they will be issued soon.

Hi All,
my husband and I (and our 1year old) are looking to buy one of the 3bedrooms at Beresford, I am super excited.

I know there is alot of talk about attic conversion on this thread, I have read through it, but does anyone have any pictures of there attic conversion ? I am having struggle visualising it.

Thanks in advance,

Rochelle

Mr.Local wrote:Thanks for the update. Yea we have our name down and think it will be early next year before completion. Does anyone have any recommendations for solicitors and what their cost was? I understand that solicitors provide a fixed fee now instead of an hourly rate. A good solicitor would be great so not to slow down things.

Thanks



Hi there I would highly recommend http://ejwalshsolicitors.ie/ Eamonn was fantastic really responsive and very competitive price

They give you the choice of 4 colours - pick one, there is no option to do each room in a different colour.
Paint they use is Fleetwood.
From houses i've been in a large number of people went with smoked umber myself included. https://fleetwoodpaints.myshopify.com/p ... oked-umber, another choice is cotton ball and i cant remember the other two. I'd ask Valerie what they are and look at them before you go out to site to pick as the samples(pieces of wood painted) that she has are there since site opened so bit grubby and hard to judge.

You'll also have to pick the tiles at the same time. This i found strange, its the same tile they put on the floor as the walls. Again i went with the options that i had seen in the house i viewed as you only see the tile in the builders hut it is hard to visualise what it would look like in bathroom and ensuite. Recently i did get a look at one of the houses that had used the dark grey tile, i taught this looked dull when picking but after seeing up in the bathroom i would now if choosing again pick this one. I've a few photos on my phone of a few bathrooms and ensuites if you want them to see. PM me your email address and i'll send them on)

Thanks so much for that info CBC, really appreciate it. Will deffo PM you for those pics.
Who is Valerie?! We've not heard a thing from anyone since we put a deposit down.
Do you know how long before estimated completion date you're required to make choices to include the kitchen?
Thanks again.

My own advice is to go for the brightest paint if you plan on painting any of your walls a different colour in future, makes a big help.
I got the grey, almost black tile for the bathroom, looks good but very hard to drill through for fitting shower screen etc.

I picked the dark tile for the main bathroom. While the dark tile is on the wall a lighter one is on the floor for some reason. Not sure if this the same in all bathrooms!

Hi! We have just bought in the new phase and are due to move to Beresford at the end of the year. We have just seen the updated brochure on daft.ie with the new style of build for Beresford Court. Have you all seen it? Interested to hear other people’s thoughts on it as we are unsure how we feel about it!

Just had a look. Can only see 3 and 4 bedroom properties, which seem uniform to the rest of the estate.A slight internal difference unless I am missing something......

Interesting. Compared to the brochure that I saw when reserving a 3-bed in Court, the floor plans are identical, but the exterior is quite different:

Yes, that is the same brochure I received too and we were told there would be changes to the exterior, we just didn’t realise how extreme the changes would be!

Thanks newresidents18 for this, hadnt seen this pdf. Im not sure about it but I guess it will have to grow on me :?

Just wondering while im here, have you recieved the contracts yet? We received a contract and a building agreement. To say they were vague would be an understatement. Did anyone recieve a floor plan, layout specs etc with your contracts about their particular house?

We have received them but we haven’t seen them yet as our solicitor says there are various documents missing etc. so not quite sure what is going to be honest! As far as I know there were no updated floor plans included. I have the original floor plan which includes room dimensions etc. I can send you them through DM if you don’t have these?

The layout of the new 3-bed Type C remind me of the original type B but better as you have a window on landing. The new exterior i think is quite nice. Main diff looks to be the removal of the canopy over the front door. This wouldnt be a deal breaker for me. I would think these will look quite nice.
