The new home view: Strike gold on Silveracre in D14 for €895k
Four three-storey, four-bed homes with more to come in Rathfarnham
This former Regency manor house at Silveracre has been fully restored by NColl Construction and Homeland Investments with careful detail to retaining coving, cornicing, sash windows and marble fireplaces of the era.
It will convert to a four-bedroom and three-bedroom house within its walls while two separate large detached houses are being built in the grounds for release at a later stage and will be worth keeping an eye on. This could have been ripe land for a load of duplexes, so restraint was used to bring these high-end properties to bear instead.
For now, there are an additional four four-bedroom detached houses on offer which are built in a contemporary style in the gardens, with the backdrop of the period residence. The styling is 'Amare' and they are built over three storeys in a white render and grey finish with a zinc pitched roof.
They measure 2,634 sq ft, which is quite large these days, and incorporate a kitchen/dining/sitting room with utility off and double doors to the rear patio and garden, a separate living room and guest WC on the ground floor.
The mid-floor has two bedrooms, one en-suite with the main bathroom while the upper storey has two bedrooms, both en-suite. The four will range from €895,000-€950,000 depending on aspect while the show house is being sold with or without contents; fully kitted out it brings the price to €995,000.
Drives are gravelled, with greenery and lawn planted and iron railings to the front. The development is adjacent to the Pearse Museum, St Enda's Park and sandwiched between the Castle and Grange golf clubs. Marlay Park is a short walk.
The period units phase will feature a three-bedroom lodge and three four-bedroom properties - two are single builds on the grounds in Edwardian style, while the feature one is in the original house and will extend to 3,371 sq ft with granite steps, leaded fanlights and guarding sphinxes to protect from the wilds of Rathfarnham!
