Somerton, a development off Newcastle Road in Lucan, was designed to cater to a range of purchasers, from first-timers to trader-uppers.
Castlethorn Construction is catering to a hotbed of demand for new homes in Lucan and regional planning guidelines estimate the area's population will swell by 12pc in fewer than three years.
A new phase of 32 three, four and five-bed homes is being released at Somerton this weekend, with prices starting at €350,000. Sizes range from 1,248 sq ft for the Blackthorn, a three-bed terraced style, to 2,150 sq ft for the Oak, a five-bed detached.
All the A-3 rated house types are classical in style, with a mix of brick and render to the facades and cobblelock front driveways.
Inside, all designs have 9ft-ceilings to the ground floor, a formal living room and an open-plan kitchen/diner. Mountlodge supplied the kitchen units and the wardrobes.
Somerton is a 15-minute walk from Adamstown train station, with the trip to Heuston taking 11 minutes. The M50 is a seven-minute drive in light traffic. Viewings tomorrow and Sunday, between 2pm and 4pm.
