Fourth phase will appeal to families
Longview, Millers Glen, Swords, Co Dublin
Swords natives with young families have dominated house purchases at Millers Glen, a development about 2km from the centre of the satellite town, with many of them drawn to its location opposite two primary schools, Swords Educate Together National School and Gaelscoil Bhrian Bóroimhe.
Launched in 2014, Millers Glen was the first new scheme in Dublin in seven years, and was so popular that prospective buyers queued overnight to bag their house of choice. A second section called Fairbrook followed in 2015 and the third, Longview, was released a year ago. Longview will comprise 130 three and four-bed homes when it's finished.
A fourth phase is being released this weekend at Longview, with three-bed homes accounting for the majority of the 20 units on offer. A three-bed townhouse measuring 1,195 sq ft is priced from €330,000, while a 1,260-sq ft three-bed terraced home costs from €340,000. A semi-detached version of the latter style - which has the same floor area - has a price-tag of €365,000, and a four-bed semi spanning 1,550 sq ft costs from €400,000.
The concrete-built houses at Longview, designed by Conroy Crowe Kelly Architects, are traditional in style, albeit with a modern edge. The facades are finished in a combination of render and brick, with a slate canopy over the front door. Each driveway is cobble-locked and out the back is a seeded garden.
Interior features included as standard are oak-veneered internal doors, kitchens and wardrobes from Cawley's Furniture, as well as sanitary ware, pumped showers, and extensive tiling in the bathrooms. Each home has an A3 BER.
Airside Retail Centre is 3km away from Millers Glen, as is the Pavilions Shopping Centre. The development is just off the M1 motorway and close to the M50. A Swords Express bus stop is right outside the development.
The showhouses will be open tomorrow and Sunday, from 2pm to 4pm.
