Where: The Paddock, Glenleary, Donegal.

Price: €280,000


A discount of €25,000 applies to the first purchaser of one of these four, individually designed detached homes at The Paddock, near Ramelton in Donegal.

Each uses natural stone cladding and comes with a detached garage on sites ranging from 0.6-0.7 acres.

All are four-bedroomed but are differently styled. Type 1 is 2,895 sq ft and priced at €285,000; Type 2 is 2,787 sq ft and €280,000 and the Type 4 measures 2,906 sq ft and costs €270,000.

The Type 3 is the show house and the largest at 3,498 sq ft. It has a large entrance hallway, kitchen, dining room, living room, sun room, utility room and one downstairs bedroom with a shower room.

Upstairs are three double bedrooms, the master is en-suite with a walk-in wardrobe, a study and main bathroom. It is priced at €315,000, although should the purchaser wish to retain the furnishings, the cost will increase to €330,000.

The developer is Charles Roarty who has offered an option for a woodchip solid fuel burner along with the solar panels, which are incorporated into the properties. Each house benefits from countryside views.

Glenleary is 10km from Letterkenny and 2.9km south of Ramelton village and the coastline.

Where: Dunard, Swords Road, Malahide, Co Dublin.

Price: €540,000


Seaside living is always pleasant in the summer so not surprisingly, eight of the 12 houses launched at Dunard on the Swords Road have sold.

This leaves three for sale plus a future showhouse, not currently available. A further seven will come on stream later in the year.

'Dunard' was the name of the big house, now demolished, which sat on this site. And the remaining new homes built after it, by Highpark Developments, include a three-bedroom semi-detached and two four-bedroom semi-detached.
