Finding a new abode is a walk in the park
The Park at Hansfield, Dublin 15
Hansfield, which was singled out by Fingal County Council in the early noughties for fast-track planning, sits to the north of a green belt running west from the Phoenix Park, through Farmleigh, Luttrellstown, Westmanstown and on towards the Carton Estate in Maynooth.
After Hansfield Wood, a scheme launched in 2016, was sold out, the developer, Alanna Homes, set about building a new development called The Park at Hansfield. Set around five acres of open parkland, it will consist of 213 homes - including apartments - when it is eventually finished.
Some 50 homes at The Park at Hansfield were sold off the plans before an official launch at the end of September. A second release, consisting of 11 three- and four-bed homes, came on stream at the weekend, with five properties still for sale. Prices start at €335,000 for a three-bed semi-detached of 1,184 sq ft to 1,281 sq ft, while a 1,448-sq ft four-bed version costs from €400,000.
The facades of the Delphi Architects-designed homes are finished in a combination of brick and monocouche render. The front door, as well as the double-glazed patio door and windows, come from Munster Joinery.
Inside, there is an Irish-made custom-designed kitchen with soft-close doors and drawers. Extensive wall and floor tiling, and sanitary ware come as standard in the bathrooms and en suites, while the bedrooms are fitted with contemporary-style wardrobes.
The homes at The Park at Hansfield were designed to have an A3 BER. Each is equipped with a Joule air-to-water central heating system. For commuters, the neighbourhood is served by the 39 and 39a bus routes and by Hansfield train station, while the M50 is a 10-minute drive away.
The showhomes - featured last month in the TV3 programme Showhouse Showdown, in which the public judges two identical homes styled by competing interior designers - will be on view tomorrow and Sunday, between 2pm and 4pm.
