Dalriada final phase launched
Dalriada, Knocklyon, Dublin 16
Five show houses are opening this weekend to promote the last tranche of homes in the final phase of Dalriada, a mixed development of apartments, duplexes and houses on a 12ac site off the Ballycullen Road in Knocklyon.
After selling 10 of the 35 unit release in January, there are now 25 on offer as part of the last phase, as developer Winterbrook Homes wraps up the scheme it built at the foot of the Dublin Mountains.
Winterbrook plans to build a separate development across the road from Dalriada if it succeeds in getting planning permission.
The middle-class south Dublin suburb of Knocklyon often attracts families seeking to trade up to the neighbourhood first settled by their parents' generation the 1970s and 1980s, transforming what was, up to then, a sleepy rural village.
Knocklyon is overlooked by the ruins of the hilltop Hellfire Club, infamous for the wild behaviour and Satanic rituals of its 18th century aristocratic members.
Dalriada, first launched last May, is in the newer part of Knocklyon. This weekend, there will be a duplex show unit and four three-bed show houses on view. The three-bed duplex, which measures 1,119 sq ft, will cost from €310,000, while the townhouses, which have the same floor area, will be priced from €345,000. The three-bed end-of-terrace and semi-detached homes, which have measurements ranging from 1,173 sq ft to 1,399 sq ft, will command prices starting at €255,000.
Inside, the homes have kitchens with a contemporary finish and a range of Zanussi integrated appliances. The bedroom wardrobes are shaker style and the bathrooms have Villeroy & Boch fittings.
In keeping with the latest building regulations, each home has a high energy efficiency rating.
The properties have been given a BER of A3, courtesy of uPVC double-glazed windows and patio doors, a top-end condensing boiler, a heat recovery ventilation system and PV panels on the roofs.
Dalriada is also a short drive from the shopping centres in Dundrum and Knocklyon, as well as from Marlay Park and the M50.
The 15 and 15A bus routes to the city centre stop outside the scheme.
The show houses are available for viewing between 2pm-4pm tomorrow and Sunday.
