Apartments 'are chance to get dream home'

THEY have already prompted a flood of calls from Dubliners eager to avail of a dream home bargain.
And walking around the cosy interior of one of Dublin City Council's new "rent-to-buy" apartments at Herberton in Rialto yesterday, it was not hard to see why.
The perfectly formed apartments come equipped with all the furnishings a new home owner could need.
Tastefully designed curtains, biscuit-coloured couches and cream double beds are just par for course in the new apartments, which are also decked out with wooden floors.
Under the new "rent-to-buy" scheme, sixteen of the 91 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments will be available in Herberton, which is an apartment complex directly across from the LUAS line.
And the remaining units will be available to rent at Prospect Hill in Finglas, and Park View in Dublin 11. The apartments will be fitted out to the same standard and design.
Speaking at the launch yesterday, Tony Flynn, senior executive officer at Dublin City Council Housing and Residential Services insisted that people were already showing interest in the scheme.
