The leafy Back Road that runs along part of the perimeter of the 12th-century Malahide Castle and its 268-acre grounds has increasingly become a popular destination for two residential developers catering to trader-uppers and first-time buyers in the upmarket suburb.
Bernie Carroll's Carroll Estates and Bryan Lynam's CE Cladewell Estates buy sites in the area together and apply for planning permission jointly, before dividing up each site for their own separate developments.
Brookfield, which will eventually comprise 80 houses off the Back Road, is their latest project. A second phase was released at Brookfield at the end of January and there are eight houses still available there. Prices start at €620,000 for a three-bed semi-detached home measuring 1,250 sq ft. The four-bed semis from the A design, which spans 1,485 sq ft, cost from €670,000 to €710,000, while the D style of four-bed semi, which measures 1,382 sq ft, is priced from €699,000. The largest and most expensive house type is the B style of four-bed semi, which has 1,905 sq ft of living space and a starting price of €795,000.
The A2-rated houses have a BeSpace kitchen with handle-less cabinets, Lagoon Silestone worktops, a large island unit, integrated appliances and a wine cooler.
Brookfield is a short walk from the centre of the village, while Malahide Dart Station is about a 20-minute walk. It also offers easy access to the M1 and M50. The four-bed semi-detached showhouse will be on view tomorrow and Sunday, between 11am and 1pm.
