Scenic and close to Luas
Overlooking 35 acres of heritage parkland and located just a few minutes walk from Blessington Lakes, the Downshire Park development in Co Wicklow will have the last of its remaining units -- apartments, duplexes and townhouses -- on show this weekend.
Two-bedroom apartments in Downshire Park are 70sqm and, being priced at €148,000, might be of interest to first time buyers. There is one en suite bedroom in these apartments, as well as a fitted kitchen, and living area. A high level of insulation helps to keep heating costs under control.
The three-bedroom duplexes are €210,000 and are measured at 122sqm.
These duplexes have an inverted-type design: the main bathroom and three large bedrooms (one en suite) are on the ground floor, while upstairs is the kitchen and living area, another bathroom and a balcony.
Elsewhere, the mid-terrace three-bedroom townhouse costing €220,000 (99sqm) comprises of a large living room with dividing doors into open-plan kitchen/ dining room and three large bedrooms (master en suite) on the first floor.
Lastly, there are just two four-bed dormer bungalows left at €305,000.
Measuring 124sqm, these homes overlook a large green to the front.
The unique features of this house type include a designer kitchen with all appliances, and an American-style fridge-freezer.
Downshire Park is right in the centre of Blessington village and only 10 minutes from the Tallaght Luas stop. It is also adjacent to Blessington Town Centre, which has a flagship Dunnes Stores, and there are plans for a hotel, leisure centre and further retail outlets.
Schools and churches are within walking distance, while the nearby heritage park is set to include a bowling green, playing pitches and restored garden at Blessington Demesne.
Viewings are this Saturday and Sunday, 3pm -- 5pm. Contact Leahy Property Consultants, 01 6243060
