The Donabate peninsula, which forms a hammer-head shape between the Rogerstown Estuary to the north and Broadmeadow Estuary to the south, was traditionally part of North County Dublin's market gardening hub.
These days, it's popular amongst developers catering to buyers who want to live within easy commuting distance of Dublin city centre, thanks to a train station in the village.
One of the newest schemes in the area is The Paddocks Donabate Village, so named because it's just 250m from the village centre. The scheme, which is located off the Portrane Road, was launched in mid-September 2019.
There are currently eight houses for sale from the first and second phase of The Paddocks and all but one are three-bed homes. Prices start at €390,000 for a terraced three-bed, climbing to €410,000 for a semi-detached version. The sole four-bed available is a detached property priced from €615,000.
The homes are faced with a Belgian dappled brick. To the rear is a patio and a seeded lawn. A gate at the back of the development leads to the local Educate Together primary school, while the St Patrick's Boys' and Girls' national schools are minutes away. The rail journey from Donabate train station to Connolly Station takes about 30 minutes.
Viewings are by appointment.
