Three storeys and an amphitheatre to boot in Cualanor
Roseland, Cualanor, Dun Laoghaire, Co Dublin
Cualanor, the name of the Dun Laoghaire development being built by the Cosgrave Group, derives from the term 'gold of Cualan'. During the era of the High Kings, Cualan stretched from the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains to Dalkey Island and was ruled by the Cuala. It was in this ancient kingdom that gold was first smelted, according to the Annals Of The Four Masters.
Cualanor is a tad smaller these days, but it still amounts to a vast patch of land off Upper Glenageary Road that was once home to an old Dun Laoghaire golf club before the site was snapped up for development in 2002.
In May, the first section of the development, known as Roseland, was launched. Since then, 65 houses have been sold there and there are currently 12 three-storey homes from a September release still up for grabs.
Ten of these dwellings are from the Alder type and command price-tags ranging from €715,000 to €745,000. Two are from the Birch styles, with prices going from €800,00 to €820,000. The Alder house type has five bedrooms, one of which would work as a study, and has a total floor area of 2,206 sq ft. The scheme has a dedicated 6.5ac woodland park, a playground and a large green space with seating laid out as an amphitheatre. The entire area has already been fully landscaped.
The A-rated Roseland properties feature a heat recovery ventilation system and outside there is a charging point for an electric car. Viewings at Roseland, Cualanor, are scheduled for 2.30pm-4pm tomorrow and Sunday. The properties on view will be ready to be occupied by April.
