Asking price: €000k

Buyers in Greystones with a love of sea views will be keen to check out the latest phase of Glenveagh Home's Marina Village which overlooks the new marina and the Irish Sea.
The development which will comprise 358 houses and apartments on completion last year saw the release of the Tuskar house type at The Shore section, which will also benefit from a new boardwalk, clubhouses for sporting facilities, and a 14-acre coastal park on the north shore of Marina Village.
Last weekend, a similar house style called the Burford was launched at The Shore. Ten of these 2,450-sq ft, four/five-bed semi-detached homes were released, with prices starting at €1.05m.
The Burford is being marketed from the showhouse for the Tuskar style as it has a similar design, albeit with an extended kitchen to the rear.
The exteriors are finished in a combination of brick, granite and render, with a grey high-performance Scandinavian timber front door. There is natural granite to the sills of the double-glazed Scandinavian timber windows supplied by NorDan.
Inside, there are 9ft-high ceilings to the ground floor, where the living room is fitted with an Opti-V electric fire. Double doors open from the hallway to the kitchen, which comes from Nolan Kitchens' Signature range.
On the first floor is the master bedroom, with its walk-in wardrobes and ensuite. To the front is a family room with a balcony to enjoy the sea views, though buyers could transform this space into a fifth bedroom. On the second floor, there are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
There is also one Tuskar home still on the market; it spans 2,314 sq ft and costs from €1m. The selling agents also expect to release three-bed townhouses off the plans later this spring, with prices ranging from €450,000 to €470,000.
These townhouses will face directly on to Strand Road. Meanwhile, show-apartments will open this summer for the release of one-bed units priced from €425,000 and two-beds selling for €535,000.
Viewings of the latest release are by appointment.
