The Edwardian-style new homes at Citywest Village, with their brick arches, granite windowsills and slate roofs, are all inspired by the traditional full red-brick streetscapes of old Dublin villages such as Drumcondra, Sandymount and Ranelagh.
The development was launched last year beside Citywest Business Campus, which has been developed by Davy Hickey Properties over the last 26 years. Davy Hickey co-funded a 4.2km extension of the Tallaght Luas line to Citywest with the late Jim Mansfield's HSS and Harcourt Developments and there is now a Luas stop adjoining the scheme's new village green.
Another phase of Citywest Village went on the market last weekend, with 30 new homes released for sale and seven still available. Prices start at €320,000 for a three-bed townhouse, at €330,000 for a three-bed end-of-terrace home, and at €425,000 for a four-bed semi-detached house.
The block-and-brick built homes have high ceilings on the ground floor, shaker-style fitted kitchens from Nolan Kitchens, sanitaryware and extensive tiling in the bathrooms and en suites, and fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms. Out the back is a seeded garden with block rear walls and timber post fencing. There are two allocated parking spaces for each home.
With an A3 BER, the houses at Citywest Village are efficient to run. Energy-saving features include a Glen Dimplex air-source heat pump for the central heating and double-glazed uPVC windows.
Citywest is 11km from the centre of Dublin and a five-minute drive from the N7. The Luas departs Citywest Village every 10 minutes during rush hour.
