Contemporary pads close to city centre
Grosvenor Manor, Rathmines, Dublin 6
Three of the nine ultra-contemporary townhouses and apartments built by New Generation Homes at Grosvenor Manor, just off Leinster Road in Rathmines, are still on the market.
The homes, located on the grounds behind 29-43 Grosvenor Place, are aimed at the executive market, thanks, in part, to the high-end complex's proximity to the city centre and the villages of Rathmines, Ranelagh and Rathgar. The development is made up of four two-bed apartments and five three-bed townhouses. While the apartments have since been sold, three townhouses remain on offer.
Two of the townhouses are priced from €700,000 apiece, while the third costs from €725,000. Sizes range from 1,324 sq ft to 1,367 sq ft.
New Generation Homes, run by brothers Greg and Hugh Kavanagh, built a series of two-storey blocks in a variety of styles at Grosvenor Manor. The blocks are laid out around communal gardens.
The exterior of the homes are finished with cut-stone cladding and coloured render with a charcoal trim, while the high-performance double-glazed windows and doors are made from Scandinavian timber.
Sleek Crystal View balconies with a timber decking provide a seamless view of the gardens, which come with custom-cut sandstone paving.
Two of the townhouses have inverted living spaces, so the kitchen, dining and living room are on the first floor to avail of the balconies and natural light, while the three bedrooms are on the ground.
The internal layout of the other house is more traditional in style, with the large living area downstairs and the bedroom accommodation upstairs. This home also benefits from a large south-facing rear garden. All of the homes have an A3 energy rating.
Greg Kavanagh's Vimovo Leinster Road Ltd had sought to add two more three-bed units to the site but was refused permission from Dublin City Council in the autumn. In March, the company submitted a revised planning application to build one more home at the scheme, namely a single-storey three-bed, bringing the total number of units in the development to 10 if the application is successful.
Grosvenor Manor has a slew of schools, amenities and transport links right on its doorstep.
The nearest Luas stops are at Cowper and Beechwood, while there are myriad bus services into the city centre.
The city centre, St Stephen's Green, and Grafton Street are all within walking distance.
