Appealing to downsizers and families
Killart, Cabinteely, Dublin 18
New residential developments in the sought-after south Dublin neighbourhood of Cabinteely have been as rare as hen's teeth in the post-crash market. But beside Cabinteely Park, Kingscroft Developments is offering just that - albeit at a hefty price.
Killart, a scheme of 17 homes arranged in a cul-de-sac off the Clonkeen Road, is being developed on a site known locally as Treacy's Yard. The land went up for auction in 2013 through Allsopp Space, where it had a guide price of between €650,000 and €750,000. But the starting price-tag for just one of the 14 four-bed semi-detached homes now for sale at Killart is €725,000.
The only three-beds at Killart were reserved in recent weeks by house-hunters who registered for an enquiry list during a pre-launch. The remainder are four-bed semis in a variety of styles. Depending on the design, each home has between 1,916 sq ft and 2,034 sq ft of living space, all spread across three floors.
The exteriors are finished in a mix of brick and render, complemented by Alu-Clad window frames. The custom-designed kitchen is in a contemporary style.
The A3-rated homes, which have a high efficiency gas condensing boiler for the central heating system, as well as solar panels and PV panels on the roof, are likely to appeal to downsizers who are seeking a low-maintenance, energy-efficient property in the locality, according to the selling agent. Family buyers will also be drawn to Killart because of the number of amenities and well-regarded schools in the area, the agent added.
Killart is located on the western side of the N11, and the stop for the 145 bus route is nearby.
Viewings at Killart will be held between 2pm and 4pm tomorrow and Sunday.
