First-time buyers in the hunt at Belltree
Belltree, Clongriffin, Dublin 13
Families hunting for an affordable house in the capital with plenty of green space could do worse than check out the latest release of properties at Belltree, a development that overlooks the 52ac Father Collins Park, Ireland's first wind-powered and sustainable public park.
A show house in the Clongriffin scheme is opening for the first time this weekend to promote a new house type at Belltree. Gannon Homes, the developer, has built 10 Type A homes at the north Dublin housing estate.
The three-bed townhouses have 1,506 sq ft of space laid out over three floors, rear gardens and are priced from €330,000, putting them in the first-time buyers category.
The homes have two large reception rooms, one of which could be used as a den or playroom, and the main living room has uninterrupted views of Father Collins Park.
The interiors are by Ventura Design and finishes include large family bathrooms and kitchens fitted by Cawleys and available in a choice of colours.
There is also a small selection of B, C and E types for sale in this release, all of which are also three-beds. They range in size from 1,205 sq ft to 1,399 sq ft, with prices starting at €280,000.
Belltree itself will ultimately consist of 114 dwellings. The first phase of Belltree was launched in September 2015 and comprised 60 units and these have all sold out.
Each of the properties have an A3 energy rating, with very high levels of wall, floor and attic insulation, solar panels that provide a continuous supply of low-cost hot water, and double-glazed uPVC windows.
Located off the Hole-in-the-Wall Road, Belltree is close to Baldoyle, Donaghmede and Portmarnock.
It has its own Dart station and park-and-ride facility on site.
The Dart from Clongriffin takes less than 20 minutes to get to Connolly Station, while the picturesque village of Malahide is two stops away in the other direction.
There is a terminus for the 15 Bus route in Clongriffin, with the bus leaving the development for the centre of Dublin every 10 to 15 minutes during the day and every 20 minutes in the evenings.
More than 700 homes have been built at Clongriffin. There are restaurants, convenience shops, a gym, pharmacy and doctor's surgery in the neighbourhood.
