Semple Woods in Donabate is near Newbridge House, one of the finest surviving examples of Georgian architecture, and its 370-acre park. Indeed, the new development is named after George Semple, the local architect and builder who oversaw the construction of Newbridge House and designed a large drawing room with a picture gallery to the back of the mansion.
Glenveagh Properties is building 250 homes at the Hearse Road scheme, which launched in April with the release of 20 houses. There are currently five properties available from that release. Prices start at €460,000 for a four-bed end-of-terrace home spanning 1,435 sq ft and go up to €584,000 for a five-bed detached style measuring 1,984 sq ft.
Externally, the houses either have a brick-and-render finish or a full-brick façade, depending on the design chosen by the buyer, and there are uPVC double-glazed windows throughout.
There is enough parking for two cars in the paved driveway, which is to one side rather than to the front at some of the house styles. French doors open from the rear of each home to a seeded garden enclosed by post-and-panel fencing.
The kitchen is supplied by CBK Design, while the master bedroom and second bedroom are each fitted with shaker-style wardrobes. There is tiling to the floors and wet areas of the bathroom, ensuites and guest WC, as well as contemporary-style sanitaryware.
The A-rated houses are located on the southern edge of Donabate town centre, where they are less than a 10-minute walk from Donabate train station.
Viewings are by appointment.
