Dedicated rugby fans will get a kick out of Belarmine Woods, a new residential development being built on the former training grounds and playing fields for the Lansdowne and Old Wesley rugby clubs. Each of the five house types on offer are named after a Dublin club.
The two, three, four and five-bed homes at Belarmine Woods will be launched for the first time this weekend. They are being built in Stepaside, at the foot of the Dublin Mountains, by Castlethorn Construction, which developed the existing mature Belarmine scheme between 2000 and 2006. When it is finished, Belarmine Woods will comprise 126 houses in total. The first phase of 40 houses are scheduled to be finished in November.
The five-bed semi-detached house type at the new scheme is called The Lansdowne. It will be set over three levels and will cost €525,000. Castlethorn has chosen The Wesley for the name of its four-bed semi-detached houses, with prices starting at €485,000. The three-bed type will be called The Belvedere; it will be the main house style at Belarmine Woods and will be available as a mid-terraced townhouse, an extended semi-detached home, or an end-of-terrace house, and will command prices starting at €375,000. The final type, a two-bed townhouse, will be dubbed The Bective and will cost €340,000.
The houses will feature red brick and render exteriors and will be set out in a series of small cul-de-sacs. Inside, there are reception and dining areas, and kitchens by Mountlodge Kitchens that will be fitted with Bosch and Indesit appliances.
The A-rated homes will have a mechanical heat recovery ventilation unit that supplies fresh air into the bedrooms and living rooms, as well as roof-mounted Kingspan solar panels to boost the supply of hot water. The Glencairn Luas stop is a 15-minute walk away.
There are three fully furnished showhouses and two additional houses to view at Belarmine Woods. Viewings will be held tomorrow and Sunday, between 2pm and 5pm.
