Turn your four-bed into a five in Swords
Knocksedan Demesne, Swords, Co Dublin
Demand for this weekend's 10-home release at Knocksedan Demesne, a residential estate west of Swords town centre, was so high that eight were sold in a pre-launch.
The development, situated between Dublin Airport and Roganstown Golf Course, has been attracting family buyers trading up from areas such as Ashbourne in Meath and Blanchardstown, according to the selling agent.
Some 150 properties were originally built at Knocksedan Demesne a decade ago. As the property market began to recover, building at the scheme resumed in 2014. In total, when the development is fully complete, there will be 200 additional three, four and five-bed houses.
The newest road at Knocksedan Demesne is called Belvedere Avenue. It is here that two of the 10 homes in this weekend's launch will be built. Completions for all 10 are due in June.
Both remaining properties are four-bed semi-detached homes from the type A range and are priced from €440,000. The houses each measure 1,593 sq ft, but would-be buyers have the option of expanding their four-bed home into a three-storey, five-bed dwelling - the houses have full planning permission to convert the future-proofed attic space, thereby increasing the total floor area to 1,900 sq ft.
The exteriors of the block-built homes are finished in a combination of monocouche self-coloured, hand-cut sandstone detailing and chalk-coloured uPVC windows.
Inside, the high-gloss German kitchen comes with modern worktops, appliances, as well as cabinets supplied by Timbercraft. The bedroom wardrobes from Kube also have a high-gloss finish, while internal doors are in an oak shaker-style.
The dwellings were designed to have an A2 BER thanks to the PV solar panels that top up the electricity supply and the air-to-water efficiency system.
Swords is just 4km from Dublin Airport and 14km from the city centre.
Viewings at Knocksedan Demesne will be held tomorrow, from 1pm-2pm.
