Affordable Home Purchase Scheme Launched in Newcastle West

  • Woodfield Manor Newcastle West

Limerick City and County Council in partnership with DC Manor Ltd present Phase 2 of the Woodfield Manor affordable housing scheme, a superb new development of 21 homes available for private purchase.

Prices start from €250,000 for a three-bedroom mid-terrace house, from €255,000 for a three-bedroom end-terrace house, and from €260,000 for a three-bedroom semi-detached house.   

The affordable home purchase scheme is generally aimed at first-time buyers and fresh start applicants and helps people on moderate incomes to buy new homes at reduced prices. Through this scheme, Limerick City and County Council will take a percentage equity share (share of the ownership) in the home.   

Potential applicants looking to buy a home in Woodfield Manor are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the eligibility criteria and the application process.   

More information can be obtained at Affordable Home Purchase Scheme.   

Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Cllr Gerald Mitchell welcomed the launch of the affordable housing scheme at Woodfield Manor, saying:  

“The launch of Phase 2 of this development will provide additional much needed affordable homes in Newcastle West for first time buyers and fresh start applicants who are ready to start their journey to owning their own home”.

Caroline Curley, Director of Housing with Limerick City and County Council said:   

“The 21 homes in Phase 2 of this scheme offer eligible buyers an opportunity to secure their own newly built home at a price lower than its open market value. This scheme is one of a number of affordable home purchase schemes in the pipeline for delivery by the Council across the city and county.”

DC Manor Ltd. owner, Denis Corbett, commented:

“As a local firm based in Newcastle West, we are delighted to be launching Phase 2 of this scheme following the successful launch of Phase 1 in October of last year. We see first-hand the need for homes in the area and we are delighted to be providing affordable homes for families who need them.”
