Just three left in Grange Hill scheme
Grange Hill, Rathfarnham, Dublin 14
There are just three homes remaining in the first phase of Grange Hill, a new development on Harold's Grange Road, at the foothills of the Dublin Mountains.
The initial phase of the Rathfarnham scheme was launched in April and two more will follow later this year, according to the selling agent. The development will ultimately comprise about 70 homes.
There are two house types left in the current phase of Grange Hill, namely one in The Kilakee style and two from The Cruagh house type. Both are built over three storeys and have nine-inch ceilings throughout. French windows open out from the kitchens to the paved patios, and the back gardens are enclosed by high walls. There is an option to install either a wood-burning stove or a gas-inset fire in the living rooms.
The Kilakee is a four-bed terraced house with a floor area of 1,883 sq ft, while the five-bed semi-detached homes in The Cruagh style have a living space of 2,637 sq ft. The four-bed costs from €575,000 and the selling agent says the two five-beds are a tad more expensive, but the developer is still crunching the numbers to determine the final price.
The four-bed has a kitchen/dining/living room and guest WC on the ground floor, two bedrooms, one ensuite and a bathroom on the first floor, and two additional bedrooms, another ensuite, a bathroom and a study/playroom on the top floor. The latter can be converted to give the option of a fifth bedroom.
The five-bed properties are laid out over an L shape and the ground-floor kitchen/dining area is located in the elongated portion of the layout. There are two hallways, to the front and rear, effectively splitting the ground floor. Upstairs are four bedrooms, one ensuite, and the family bathroom. The top floor is home to the master bedroom, a bathroom and a study/playroom.
The timber-framed homes have BER ratings of A3 building, a minimum typical for homes built after 2012, and are fitted with solar panels, tripled-glazed windows and a Vaillant eco-TEC pressurised gas heating system.
Access to the M50 is a five-minute drive away and the nearest Luas station is at Balally, about two miles away. Would-be buyers at Grange Hill seeking to relax with a slice of the great outdoors need only walk 300m to reach Marlay Park, with its walks, woodlands and farmers' market.
Viewing is by appointment only.
