This new development on Howth summit is sure to attract attention when it launches this weekend. With 30 detached houses sitting on a third to a half acre each, they are substantial family homes with the initial six ready to be sold.

Measuring 3,358 sq ft, they are finished in a traditional cream render exterior with double fronted interesting four-panelled windows to the lower half, and three up top, set into grey granite surrounds. The front door is inset into a granite portico with leaded glass surround.

Inside, the kitchen/dining/family area takes precedence with floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors stretching to 603 sq ft - bigger than some apartments reviewed on these pages. Cupboards are hand-painted by Cawleys.

There is a utility room off this, with the ground-floor accommodation being completed by a study, lounge, dual-aspect living room, again with floor to ceiling glass doors and windows, and guest bathroom. Upstairs are five bedrooms, three of which are ensuite, and the master also has a walk-in wardrobe. There is a large family bathroom also.

Outside, gardens have been landscaped with a mixture of paving, pebbles and shrubbery with low stone-cut walls and shaped hedging marking out boundaries.

The A3 energy rating is thanks to the heat recovery ventilation system, low-energy windows and a highly efficient gas condensing boiler. The price quoted is €1,400,000.

The development sits adjacent to 2.5 acres of woodland, on the Thormanby Road, which is linked to both Carrickbrack Road and Harbour Road. Developer Cosgraves are known for their top-end finish to both houses and sites, having constructed Honeypark in Dun Laoghaire and Bracken Park in Castleknock, among others.

The launch is this weekend with viewing today from 12-2pm, 2.30-4pm on Saturday and from 11.30am-1pm on Sunday.
