Forest Hill is our current development. Work has been in progress on this site since 2007 and approximately 100 houses have been successfully completed and sold to date. Located on the south side of Carrigaline, this is an ideal location for the growing family. Overlooking the Owenabue estuary and surrounded by beautiful views across the Cork countryside, Forest Hill is an exclusive new development located on a south-facing site. Close to every facility including excellent schools, shops, restaurants and sports fields it is only 10 minutes walk from the vibrant and growing town centre of Carrigaline.

Forest Hill is a development designed with quality urban forms and spaces to meet the current urban design standards of Cork County, which successfully integrates the development into and enhances its scenic surroundings. As the site is located on the southern boundary of Carrigaline, its context is characterized by the village like edge of the neighbourhoods to its northern boundary and also the rolling rural landscape that surrounds the southern side of the site. This is very much a tranquil, rural setting next to a vibrant small town, as the predominant views are of rural countryside and yet one is within walking distance of the village centre. A strong framework for the organisation of circulation and services to the site is provided by the new Carrigaline southern relief road, which forms a boulevard-like spine to the development. The site is organised into a network of various housing clusters and quality open spaces on either side of this tree lined primary avenue that is pedestrian and cycle friendly. A short walk along this new avenue brings one directly on to the Owenabue Estuary walk and cycle path, which is one of the most scenic and popular amenities in Cork.

Forest Hill has enjoyed much attention to design detail at various levels. The variety and arrangement of building types is designed so as to create clearly identifiable areas of character within the development, which avoids the uniform and monotonous suburban developments of the past. With Astra Construction's years of experience in building family homes, all homes have been designed in order to maximise usable living spaces and room sizes. The best quality red brick facades are offset with painted, smooth cement render and traditional bay windows and vibrant red clay roof tiles, which add character to the country setting of the houses. Specially made coloured timber front doors with sidelights and in the larger houses fanlights, smartly capped with locally custom made lead roof porch canopies on ornate timber frames, invite visitors into the spacious hall ways of these homes.

Beautiful photographs and well-constructed commentaries do not really do complete justice to the simple beauty of this development. It's best to visit and experience this development for oneself, and experience it all first hand.
