Room to study in Clontarf red-bricks
Churchfield, Clontarf, Co Dublin
Churchfield, a boutique development of red-brick townhouses and apartments beside St Anthony's Church in the heart of Clontarf Village, offers buyers a rare chance to purchase a new home on the upmarket neighbourhood's seafront.
The showhouse for the development, a 19-unit scheme built on an infill site at 59-60 Clontarf Road, opened yesterday. There are 15 three-bed-plus-study houses and four one-bed apartments. Each of the houses extends to 1,340 sq ft and costs from €625,000, while the apartments measure about 600 sq ft and are priced from €325,000.
Churchfield was developed by MKN Property Group, a company headed by Brian McKeon that recently sold apartments and penthouses at Seascape, on the former site of the Dollymount House pub in Clontarf. The townhouses at Churchfield are laid out over three floors, with a study and a third bedroom occupying the top floor. They have a full-brick facade with granite windowsills, Rationel triple-glazed windows and natural slate roofs.
Each house has its own rear landscaped garden with a granite patio and a shed, and 11 of the homes enjoy a west-facing back garden. The matte kitchens are from the Leicht range by Kube and come with a breakfast bar, Silestone worktops and integrated Siemens appliances.
The apartments, which are on the first and second floors above a retail unit (expected to be a ladies' boutique), are to the front of Churchfield, so they command views of the promenade and the sea beyond from their balconies. They have clay brick facades, lift access, designated surface parking, large lobby areas and storage rooms.
The A-rated homes have a mechanical heat recovery ventilation system and the development has a Dimplex air-source heat pump located externally. Viewings are today from 5pm-7pm, and tomorrow and Sunday from 2pm-4pm.
