The lands at Vesey Park, now part of the 200-acre Griffeen Valley Park in the former spa town of Lucan, were once owned by James Gandon, the architect behind Dublin landmarks such as the Custom House and the Four Courts. The English architect died in 1823 at his Lucan home, having spent 42 years working in Dublin.
This heritage is recalled in the name of Gandon Park, a new development of three and four-bed family homes close to Lucan Village. It's being developed by Cairn Homes, which is also building some 1,100 houses and apartments in the village at Shackleton Park.
When it's finished, Gandon Park will comprise 230 properties. The selling agents are releasing the first phase of 40 three and four-bed houses this weekend. The three-beds range in size from 1,216 sq ft to 1,248 sq ft and are priced from €350,000, while the four-beds span between 1,474 sq ft and 1,496 sq ft and cost from €395,000.
The A-rated houses at Gandon Park are within walking distance of Adamstown train station, with the train journey to Heuston Station taking about 22 minutes. For motorists, the N4 is just minutes away, providing access to the M50 motorway.
The showhouses at Gandon Park will be on view from 2.30pm to 4pm tomorrow and Sunday.
