Making A2 grade with school around corner
The Grove, Goatstown, Dublin 14
The Grove, a development being built by Durkan Estates beside Our Lady's Grove School in the south Dublin neighbourhood of Goatstown, comprises a series of apartments and four-bed terraced houses.
The scheme, first launched two years ago, will have 39 houses, duplexes and apartments when it's eventually complete. For now, there are two houses still for sale from the current phase with prices starting at €825,000.
Each of the properties has 1,786 sq ft of accommodation spread out over three floors. On the ground floor are 10ft-high ceilings, a formal reception room with dark oak flooring, and a porcelain-tiled hallway leading to a custom-designed kitchen/dining room that spans the entire width of the house. The latter space has large sliding doors that open out on to a split-level patio and garden. The landscaped garden can be fitted with AstroTurf - handy for downsizers seeking a low-maintenance property - or real grass, and a Barna shed.
The first floor has three bedrooms, including an ensuite with walk-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom. There is another ensuite bedroom on the second floor, as well as a storage room. The A2-rated home counts solar panels, triple glazing and gas-fired central heating among its energy-saving features. Viewings by appointment.
