Agent: Quillsen (01) 850 0900
Blanchardstown hasn't witnessed a new residential development in almost 15 years, let alone one in the centre of the village. But this is where Church Lane, an infill scheme of just four contemporary-style houses, comes in.
The development is situated on Church Avenue, just off Main Street and beside the Scoil Bhríde boys' and girls' national schools. Two of the new 1,507-sq ft houses are launching tomorrow, with the selling agent fielding expressions of interest above €545,000 apiece.
The exterior of each home has aluminium cladding to details such as the flat-roofed porch, complemented by anthracite-grey frames to the Rationel timber composite windows. To the rear, large sliding glass doors open from the kitchen/diner on to a patio and a long, south-facing back garden.
The contemporary-style kitchen is fitted with painted ash hardwood doors, solid brass handles and Verona quartz countertops, as well as an integrated Nordmende fridge-freezer, a dishwasher, a ceramic hob and a double oven. A twin-wall flue pipe system between the chimney and the living room allows purchasers to choose between a wide range of wood or multi-fuel stoves.
The A3-rated homes at Church Lane are equipped with an air-to-water heat pump, a heat recovery ventilation system, and an alarm that can be monitored remotely.
The scheme is a 10-minute walk from Castleknock train station and within 1km of the M50/M3 interchange. The area is also served by the 38, 38a and 39 bus routes.
Viewings tomorrow and Sunday, from 12pm to 1pm.
