Harcourt Developments, the company best known for developing the Titanic Quarter in Belfast, has reached the final hurdle of its sales campaign at its Citywest estate, Cúil Dúin.

Harcourt was among a number of developers that co-funded a 4.2km-extension of the red Luas line to the Citywest Business Campus during the boom in the hope of attracting more employers and house-buyers to the area. The extension didn't open until 2011, but the transport link finally bore fruit for the company when it launched Cúil Dúin beside the Saggart Luas stop in 2016.

This weekend will see the release of the final phase of 15 three and four-bed homes at the Citywest scheme, which will comprise 220 properties when it's completely finished. Two of the 15 houses in the last tranche are large three-beds, ranging in size from 1,270 sq ft to 1,355 sq ft, with prices starting at €345,000. The remainder are all four-bed semi-detached houses measuring 1,688 sq ft apiece and priced from €420,000.

Passive building principles were applied throughout the design, specification and construction of the A-rated houses at Cúil Dúin.

The showhouses will be on view from 11am to 1pm tomorrow.
