Head for the hills and eco-friendly homes
Clay Farm, Leopardstown, Dublin 18
Some 42 homes were sold at Clay Farm in Leopardstown last weekend, during the launch of the biggest housing scheme in Dublin 18 in almost three decades.
Park Developments is building the scheme near the foothills of the Dublin Mountains.
The developer, led by Michael Cotter, last year secured planning permission for 163 houses and 262 apartments for the Clay Farm site and this summer applied for a further 900 units under the fast-track planning system. While the three-beds among the first phase of 48 houses at the scheme sold out, there are still six four-bed three-storey homes from two house styles for sale, with prices ranging from €560,000 to €580,000.
The timber-framed brick-fronted properties are fitted with custom-designed kitchens from Nolan Kitchen. The A2/A3 rated homes have high-performance triple-glazed windows from Rationel, are equipped with a heat recovery and ventilation system, are wired for electric car charging points, and have solar PV panels to generate electricity.
Clay Farm is 150m from Leopardstown Valley Luas station.
Showhouses will be on view from 2pm to 4pm tomorrow and Sunday. Enquiries to: (Savills New Homes) (01) 618 1300.
