Final phase of Clairville Lodge in popular Malahide
Clairville Lodge, Malahide, Co Dublin
Asking price: From €900,000

When Clairville Lodge was released in the north Dublin coastal village of Malahide more than a year ago, affluent international buyers accounted for a quarter of the sales.
Professionals moving or returning to Dublin from locations including Britain, the US and Hong Kong were drawn to the high-end development because of its proximity to the airport, a 15-minute drive from Clairville Lodge, according to the selling agent.
Maybury Properties is developing the 34-home scheme off the semi-rural Streamstown Lane, where it is set amid mature parkland. A second and final phase is going on the market this weekend. The latest release comprises 11 four- and five-bed detached houses, including the new showhouse, which was fitted out by Elaine Jerrard from Elk House Interiors. Prices start at €900,000 for the four-bed Charleton style and at €1.05m for the five-bed Berkeley design.
All the ODA Architects-designed homes are traditional in style: they are double-fronted, and feature bay windows, brick detail and even a chimney - a rarity in an A-rated home. Internally, there are high ceilings, a study, a separate living room, and an open-plan kitchen/dining/family room. There are gardens to both the front and back.
The attics in the Charleton have been designed with a future conversion in mind, enabling purchasers to add value over time.
The underfloor heating and bespoke wood-burning stoves to the ground floor will likely prove an additional draw when the new showhouse opens this weekend.
Clairville Lodge is a five-minute drive from Malahide village and from Portmarnock Beach.
Viewings are by appointment.
