Energy-efficient homes near commuter routes
Sizeable houses with economical heating and solar power; Elder Heath, Kiltipper Road, Dublin 24 Asking price: €275,000 - €315,000 Agent: DNG New Homes
Eight houses are released at Elder Heath which will eventually be a full mixed development of terraced, semi-detached and detached houses located on the Kiltipper Road in the Old Bawn area of Tallaght.
Built by Kelland Homes Ltd., the exteriors are a mottled red and yellow brick with cream render and grey uPVC window surrounds.
Pitched roofs allow for possible future development and families may well decide to extend into this valuable space in the future.
For now, they encompass solar panels on the outside which, along with a condenser boiler and gas-fired central heating allow for a competitive A3 BER rating.
Both house styles are similarly styled inside: the three-bed (Type C) measures 1,163 sq ft and will be priced at €275,000.
There is a kitchen/dining area with utility room off, a separate living room at the front of the house and a guest WC. Upstairs there are two double and one single bedroom, one of which is ensuite, and a family bathroom.
The four-bed (Type B) is 1,270 sq ft and comes to market for €315,000. It also has an L-shaped kitchen/dining room, utility, WC and living room. There are two double bedrooms and two single. Again, one is ensuite and there is the main bathroom.
In both styles, kitchens are supplied by Whitehill kitchens and a full range of appliances will be included in the sale. Interior doors are four-panel with brushed chrome handles.
Homes are pre-wired for telephone, internet, UPC broadband and an intruder alarm.
Driveways are cobbled in the same colour brickwork as the properties and separators are landscaped with shrubbery and lawn.
The developers have included timber side gates and seeded back gardens.
Kiltipper Road is close to many popular amenities. The Square Town Centre is less than 3km while Tallaght village and the Children's Hospital are within the same distance.
Kiltipper Road is adjacent to Dodder Valley Park and the river which provides some pleasant green space. The much larger Tymon Park is 4.5km away.
