Castleknock Cross serves up a treat
Castleknock Cross, Castleknock, Co Dublin
The Castleknock Lawn Tennis Club had humble beginnings when it was set up in 1927 - there was a tent for ladies' changing facilities and a single grass court.
The club now has a slew of courts and almost 1,300 members, more of which could be added by prospective buyers at Castleknock Cross, a development of high-end five-bed houses launching across the road this weekend.
Castleknock Cross is situated on the corner of Beechpark Avenue and the old Navan Road, about a 10 minute walk from Castleknock Village. The development will consist of 33 houses in total, with semi-detached, terraced and detached three-storey homes available over a series of phases.
The first phase will comprise just seven properties, with a semi-detached showhome featuring interiors styled by Jennifer Grace of The Good Room bound to attract house-hunters. The houses vary in size but are all in the region of 2,300 sq ft. Prices start at €820,000, and go up to €1.025m for a large detached five-bed.
Inside, there's select tiling and hardwood floors on the ground floor, all of which will have underfloor heating.
Built by Cleary Doyle, the houses at Castleknock Cross are equipped with custom-designed kitchens from Arena Kitchens, with built-in appliances and stone worktops. There are fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms, while the bathrooms and ensuites have Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware. The homes have been designed to reach a BER of between A3 and A2, with triple-glazed windows, a mechanical ventilation and heat recovery system, solar panels and a Kingspan rainwater harvesting system.
The showhouse will be available for viewing tomorrow and Sunday, between 12pm-2pm.
