Just three remain at Ardilea
Ardilea Crescent, Clonskeagh, Dublin 14
The transfer of the UCD campus from Dublin City Centre to Belfield in the 1960s inspired a slew of university-themed names for new residential estates that sprung up on cul-de-sacs in Ardilea in Clonskeagh, such as Harvard, Yale and the Sorbonne.
Off Heidelberg, one of these college- themed enclaves, lies Ardilea Crescent, a development launched for the first time in April. There are still three homes available there, all of which are four-beds laid out over three floors.
There is one of three different house types on offer. The cheapest house type, from the B plan with 2,121 sq ft of space, costs from €875,000. There is also one dwelling from the A style, a semi-detached type with a floor area of 2,423 sq ft and a starting price of €1.05m, and one from the A1 style, a 2,734 sq ft version costing from €1.25m.
The three-storey builds were designed by architecture firm McCrossan O'Rourke Manning and built by O'Malley Construction.
The homes have Mayfair kitchens from Nolan Kitchens' Signature range. These solid-wood painted kitchens come with natural stone worktops and integrated AEG appliances, including a five-ring hob, a built-in microwave and a multi-function oven combi.
All of the bathrooms and ensuites have Villeroy & Boch sanitary ware. The bedroom wardrobes are also from Nolan's. The master bedroom is on the top floor and features a large walk-in wardrobe and dresser unit.
The Ardilea Crescent homes come with either an A2 or A3 energy rating and are fitted with PV panels to generate solar power, thereby reducing electricity bills.
A heat-recovery ventilation system captures the heat energy in the air leaving the house and uses it to heat the incoming fresh air. There is underfloor heating to the ground floors.
Ardilea Crescent is close to recreational facilities such as the Deer Park tennis and sports grounds and the golf courses at Elm Park and Milltown. Commuters can use the Luas stop at Churchtown or the regular bus services into Dublin City Centre.
The most recent round of viewings at Ardilea Crescent began yesterday and continue today, from 1pm-2pm, and from 11.30am-1pm tomorrow and Sunday.
