Mid-market winners in Walkinstown suit most buyer types
Wilkins View, Walkinstown, Dublin 12
The last batch of homes have gone on sale at Wilkins View, a development of three- and four-bed homes in Walkinstown aimed at mid-market house hunters in southwest Dublin.
The residential estate, situated in a quiet cul-de-sac off Temple Manor, Limekiln Avenue, was first released to the market in September. The final phase, launching this weekend, consists of 13 three-bed terraced homes and four-bed semi-detached and end-of-terrace properties. The development is being built by Jackie Greene Construction. To date, purchasers of the three-beds have mostly been first-timers or older buyers trading down, while the four-beds have appealed to trader-uppers.
Prices in the latest tranche start at €445,000 to €450,000 for the B1 type, a three-bed mid-terrace dwelling with 1,280 sq ft of accommodation. The B2 end-of-terrace variety spans 1,330 sq ft with a starting price range of €460,000 to €465,000.
Also on offer is the A type, a four-bed end-of-terrace overlooking a large green; this 1,935-sq ft unit is priced from €550,000 to €555,000. The final type for sale is the A1, a four-bed semi-detached home with 1,960 sq ft of space and price-tags ranging from €565,000 to €575,000.
The houses, which have gas-fired central heating, were designed to have a building energy rating of A3. The east side of the scheme is beside playing fields, with St Paul's Secondary School to the west. The villages of Templeogue and Terenure are close by, while Dublin city centre is 8km away. The area is served by the Luas red line and bus routes 18, 56A, 77, and 77A.
The showhouses at Wilkins View will be open from 2pm to 4pm tomorrow.
