Belmont four-beds par for the course

Belmont, Stepaside, Dublin 18


Belmont, which is being developed on the site of a former pitch and putt course on the edge of the late 18th century Dublin village of Stepaside, was among the first new housing estates to be launched in Ireland in post-crash era.

The first homes at the Stepaside development were sold off the plans in 2013, back when public discourse remained focused on the oversupply rather than shortage of new builds in the capital. Built by the SDR Group, the scheme is set against the backdrop of the Dublin Mountains. It is laid out in a series of small private cul-de-sacs, each with a range of different house styles to add character to the streetscapes.

There are currently 11 houses available at Belmont, all of which are four-beds priced from €499,950. Ten of the properties are from the Jay range, a semi-detached type with 1,453 sq ft of accommodation over three storeys, with the four bedrooms spread out over the top two levels. Also included is the showhouse, which has an asking price of €520,000. All the bedrooms in the Jay type have fitted wardrobes. On the ground floor is an open-plan kitchen and living area. The kitchens have composite Silestone worktops, hardwood shaker-style doors painted in a soft pale grey, as well as Bosch and Amica appliances.

The block-built homes are finished externally in a Leicester Bradgate brick and monocouche render. The A3-rated homes have an air-source heat pump that heats water for the ground-floor underfloor heating, upstairs radiators and hot water tank.

Belmont is a 10 minute walk to the Glencairn stop for the Luas, which travels to the city centre in under half an hour and the M50 is a brief drive away. There is a neighbourhood shopping centre at Belarmine Plaza on Belmont's doorstep and Dundrum Village is a five minute drive or bus journey.

Viewings at Belmont will take place between 2pm-4pm tomorrow.
