Just one remains in Georgian-style estate
Kensington Manor, Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin
Published 29/01/2016 | 02:30
Thanks to a last-minute cancellation, there is one home left at this 12-unit scheme of high-end houses off Rochestown Avenue.
Kensington Manor, as the scheme is known, is reminiscent of some of the great London and Georgian Dublin squares.
The development is set around Kensington Lodge, a Victorian period house built for the Malpas family, one of Dublin's largest landowners at the time.
The remaining property at Kensington Manor is a 1,950-sq ft, four-bed detached home with a south-facing rear garden and is priced from €750,000. It has an open-plan ground floor, with a kitchen, dining space and a TV room, as well as interconnecting doors to the formal living room, which is home to a natural stone fireplace with a wood-burning stove. The first and second floors have two bedrooms each, and three of those bedrooms are ensuite.
The exterior is full red-brick to the front and rear, with decorative granite features in the windowsills and arch over the front door. The window frames are deep cream in colour and the front door comes with a period-style fanlight and glazed side panels. The frontage has a paved driveway and there are PV solar panels on the pitched roof.
The homes, a mix of semi-detached and detached dwellings, were designed by Keenan Lynch Architects and launched in early 2015.
Rochestown Avenue is located 3km from Dun Laoghaire's harbour and has easy access to the M50 at Carrickmines, where there is also a Luas stop.
Viewings will be held tomorrow from 10.30am.
