Lambay island view for new coastal village properites
Station Manor, Portmarnock, Co Dublin
Would-be residents of Station Manor in Portmarnock won't have too far to go to catch a train to Dublin city centre - the new development, which launches this weekend, is being built right across from the coastal village's train station.
The north Dublin village, famous for its 8km-long Velvet Strand and its views across to Lambay Island and Ireland's Eye, is gradually attracting the return of developers catering to buyers priced out of the capital. Sean Mulryan's Ballymore Group, which launched Drumnigh Wood in Portmarnock in 2002, is building 101 homes at St Marnock's Bay in the village. Now Regency, which is funded by Bain Capital Credit, is overseeing the construction of 62 houses and 51 apartments at Station Manor.
This weekend's initial release of 20 homes at Station Manor consists of three and four-bed terraced and semi-detached houses, with sizes ranging from 1,195 sq ft to 1,625 sq ft and prices going from €460,000 to €585,000. The apartments and five-bed homes will be released at a later stage.
Designed by O'Mahony Pike Architects, the homes come with hand-painted kitchens featuring Silestone worktops, and the integrated appliances are thrown in for free if contracts are signed on time. Other finishes include tiling by Stone Emporium throughout the bathroom and enuites and bedroom wardrobes from BeSpace.
A heat recovery ventilation system has been installed in each of the A-rated houses to allow for continuous removal of stale moist air from the kitchen, bathrooms and ensuites.
Portmarnock itself is 15km from Dublin city centre -- a journey that typically takes up to 20 minutes by Dart -- and 10km from Dublin Airport.
Viewings at Station Manor will take place tomorrow and Sunday, between 2pm and 4pm.
