Live close to our very own Bay of Naples

Woodbank, Shankill, Dublin 18


One of the biggest selling points of Woodbank is the new development's location - it is situated off an old road north of Shankill Village, is surrounded by the Dublin Mountains and is close to Killiney beach, which has been dubbed Ireland's Bay of Naples.

Woodbank, which is also only a short drive away from Glendalough, Powerscourt Estate and the Glen of the Downs, will consist of 40 four-bedroom semi-detached and terraced houses, and 18 two and three-bed apartments and duplexes.

Built by Ravenshall Developments, the scheme is aimed at young professionals, expanding families and house hunters keen to downsize from larger homes.

The developer has released 25 units for sale in the first phase of Woodbank. Prices start at €315,000 for the two-bed apartments and go up to €595,000 for the four-bed semi-detached homes.

The four-bed end-of-terrace properties, which measure 1,688 sq ft, are priced from €530,000, while the four-bed mid-terrace houses, which have the same amount of living space, cost from €505,000 to €525,000.

The three-bed duplexes at Woodbank are priced from €395,000, while the single three-bed apartment in this tranche is for sale at €360,000. The two-bed apartments cost between €315,000 and €335,000.

The houses have been constructed with timber frames, the facades are finished in select brick and self-coloured render, and the roofs have concrete tiles.

Inside, the kitchens are finished with painted shaker-style doors, quartz counters and a modern breakfast bar.

The wardrobes in all of the bedrooms also have painted shaker-style doors, as well as polished chrome handles. Ceramic tiles are fitted to the kitchens, utility rooms and ground floor guest WCs.

The tiled bathrooms and ensuites are fitted with a Kohler bath and polished chrome towel rails, while the master bedroom ensuites have a Mira electronic remote control shower.

Upon closing of a house sale, a wall-mounted Dimplex SP16 flame-effect fire will be installed in the main living room.

The front gardens have feature planting with permeable paving for parking and the rear gardens have large patio areas, grass and tree planting.

All of the units were designed to have an A3 building energy rating, which will reduce household energy bills.

Woodbank is a two-minute drive to an M50 interchange, but would-be residents can also avail of public transport links such as the Dart station at Shankhill, the Cherrywood Luas stop, or the 7B, 145, 84 and 45A bus routes.

Viewings of the four-bed show house started yesterday and continue today, tomorrow and Sunday, between 1pm and 3pm.
