Keeping it cool close to Donabate Beach
Beresford, Donabate, Co Dublin
Residents of Beresford in the north Dublin coastal town of Donabate don't have far to go to cool off in the heatwave - the development is just a five-minute drive from Donabate Beach.
The scheme is tucked away off Turvey Avenue, beside Newbridge Demesne, which has parks, walkways, a stately home and playgrounds.
The development will consist of 400 three and four-bed semi-detached houses and four-bed detached houses by the time it's finished. They are being built by Hora Homes,and about 200 of Beresford's properties have already been sold or are occupied.
A new phase is due to come on the market there soon, but in the meantime there are still three properties available from the last tranche. Each one is a four-bed semi priced from €430,000 and measuring 1,475 sq ft. The developer is leaving the attics conversion-ready. The houses are built to a traditional format, with red-brick exteriors and the facades have a granite trim to the windowsills, and a black front door.
Buyers can choose their kitchen from Kube Kitchens and select sliding wardrobe doors too. Siemens kitchen appliances are included as standard if contracts are signed within four weeks. The living room is fitted with a traditional stone fireplace and wood-burning stove. An air-to-water heat pump provides heat and on-demand hot water.
Viewing is by appointment. Enquiries to: Hora Property Consultants, (01) 6650456.
