Edwardian-style homes on Luas line
Citywest Village, Citywest, Dublin 24
At Citywest Village, the new Edwardian-style homes, with their brick arches, granite windowsills and slate roofs, are all inspired by the traditional full red-brick streetscapes of old Dublin villages such as Drumcondra, Sandymount and Ranelagh.
The large new residential development being launched this weekend is located beside Citywest Business Campus, which has been developed by Davy Hickey Properties over the last 25 years and counts Pfizer, eir, Adobe and Unilever amongst its tenants.
Davy Hickey co-funded a 4.2km extension of the Tallaght Luas line to Citywest with the late Jim Mansfield's HSS and Harcourt Developments. The latter launched the second phase of its own Citywest residential scheme, Cúil Dúin, last weekend.
Citywest Village will consist of 339 three and four-bed homes when it is finished, with a first phase of 40 being released this weekend. Most of the initial tranche are two-storey three-bed homes with two dedicated parking spaces.
Prices start at €295,000 for a three-bed townhouse, with sizes ranging from 1,173 sq ft to 1,216 sq ft.
The semi-detached versions have measurements of between 1,184 sq ft and 1,335 sq ft and are selling from €317,500. There are just four semi-detached four-bed homes available in the first phase - these span 1,410 sq ft and are priced from €380,000.
The block-built homes have shaker-style fitted kitchens from Nolan Kitchens, as well as sanitary ware and extensive tiling in the bathrooms and ensuites, with fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms.
Out back is a seeded garden with block rear walls and timber-post fencing.
With an A3 BER, the homes at Citywest Village will be extremely efficient to run. Energy-saving features include a Glen Dimplex air-source heat pump for the central heating and double-glazed uPVC windows.
The Luas red line passes through Citywest Village and there is a stop adjoining the village green, which will be at the heart of the residential development.
The Luas departs every 10 minutes during rush hour. Citywest is seven miles from the centre of Dublin and a five-minute drive to the N7.
Three fully furnished showhouses at Citywest Village will go on view for the first time tomorrow, between 2pm-4pm.
Viewings will continue at the same time on Sunday.
