Rockville, Kilternan, Dublin 18
Asking price: €650,000

In the early 19th century, the dairy farm that belonged to Rockville House in Kilternan supplied fresh milk to much of Dublin city.
Now Rockville House is in the midst of a renaissance, after Maplewood Homes launched the first new-build homes on its grounds almost a year ago.
The gate lodge at the original entrance to Rockville house at Glenamuck Road is going on the market this weekend, having been restored to its former glory. The 1,087-sq ft two-bed-plus-study property, which comes with a southwest-facing landscaped garden, is selling for €650,000 by private treaty.
Inside the revamped gate lodge is an entrance hall with vaulted ceilings and panelled walls. The kitchen/ dining/ living room has a bespoke kitchen with separate utility room and pantry. The focal point of the living area is a panelled chimney breast fitted with an electric fire, and there's a corner window and French doors to the patio. The master bedroom has an open fireplace, built-in wardrobes and en-suite shower.
Also for sale this weekend is a large newly-built four-bed detached house which costs from €895,000, as well as three- and four-bed homes ranging from €530,000 to €695,000.
Viewings at Rockville will be held from 10am to 11am tomorrow.
