Playgrounds and sports at Honeypark
Honeypark, Glenageary Road Upper, Co Dublin
There are 11 four and five-bed homes up for grabs at Honeypark, a development built on the site of the old Dun Laoghaire Golf Club that retains some of the club's mature trees and features.
Honeypark is well named: it is surrounded by three large parks, has landscaped gardens, a feature lake with a jetty and viewing deck, children's playgrounds and playing areas for football, basketball and tennis.
The Cosgrave Group, the developer that bought the former golf course in 2002, has been working with The Curlew Trust charity to create a better habitat for native plants and wildlife in the park areas.
The Cosgraves last month launched Roseland, Cualanor, a scheme across the road from Honeypark, on the same former golf club site.
Beside the Glenageary Road Upper entrance to Honeypark is the Park Pointe shopping centre.
The retail development, which has a Tesco, Costa Coffee and Boots, was the first new shopping centre in south Dublin since 2007 when it opened earlier this year.
There are five homes still available at Honeypark from the Ash four-bed house type and these are priced from €670,000. Six properties from the Oak style of five-beds are on the market from €730,000. All will be ready to close in July and August.
The homes have brick elevations and higher-than-standard ceilings in their living areas. The Oak house plan has contemporary timber kitchen units in a Haze finish with Victoria quartz worktops, all from Nolan Kitchens.
The bathrooms and ensuites have shower enclosures as well as floor and wall tiling as standard. Each of the gardens has a patio leading off from the living area with outside lights and sockets for barbeques.
The properties at Honeypark, which won the environment category at the SEAI 2013 Energy Awards, have a heat recovery ventilation system that minimises heat loss by 90pc, as well as an A-rated condensing boiler unit and a solar PV system that generates electricity.
Residents at Honeypark can reach the city centre by bus or Dart. Dun Laoghaire is 2km away, while Blackrock is 4.5km.
Honeypark is within walking distance of Dun Laoghaire harbour.
