Just two townhouses left at Kingsford Cross
Kingsford Cross, Woodford Lane, Portmarnock, Co Dublin
Portmarnock is famous for its five-mile Velvet Strand, the beach from which Australian aviator Sir Charles Kingsford Smith took off on his Southern Cross aircraft in 1930 on a pioneering 33 hour flight across the Atlantic to Newfoundland.
Indeed, Kingsford Cross, a development of apartments and townhouses in the coastal suburban village, is named after the legendary aviator. The 19 apartments at the scheme have been sold, but two of the townhouses are still available.
Kingsford Cross is located in the village, on the corner of Carrickhill Road and Strand Road. The estate was first marketed by developers Carrickhill Developments in 2011, but Knight Frank have since been instructed by a receiver, Tom O'Brien of Mazars, to sell the homes. Prices start at €389,995.
Accommodation at the remaining three-bed houses extends to 1,250 sq ft, laid out over three floors.
At ground level, dividing doors separate the living room from the kitchen/dining area and there is also a guest toilet at this level. On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom, while the master bedroom and its ensuite are on the top floor.
Interior finishes include brushed stainless steel switches and sockets, semi-solid timber flooring and bathrooms finished with Turkish travertine tiles. The kitchen has a high-gloss finish and comes with Neff appliances throughout.
Portmarnock is 10km away from Dublin Airport and 15km from the city centre. The village is served by Dublin Bus and the Dart.
