A-rated homes with schools on doorstep
Killart, Cabinteely, Dublin 18
Cabinteely House, built in south Dublin in the 1760s, was once home to Joe McGrath of the Irish Hospitals' Sweepstakes fame. The controversial lottery helped fund Irish hospitals for half a century.
These days, Cabinteely House forms the centrepiece of the 112-ac Cabinteely Park. Next to the public park is Killart, an upmarket scheme of 17 homes being built by Kingscroft Developments off the Clonkeen Road. The final phase of the enclave was launched a month ago. Of the eight houses released, six are still available, with prices starting at €725,000. Each of the four-bed semi-detached properties has between 1,916 sq ft and 2,034 sq ft of living space, all spread across three floors.
The A3-rated homes are likely to appeal to downsizers seeking a low-maintenance, energy-efficient property in the locality. Family buyers will also be drawn to Killart because of the number of amenities and well-regarded schools in Cabinteely.
The showhouse at Killart is open tomorrow and Sunday, from 2pm to 4pm. Enquiries to: Beirne & Wise (01) 288090
