L-shape will make most of the garden
Brambledown, Carrickmines, Dublin 18
Located on a cul-de-sac in Carrickmines, at the foot of the Dublin Mountains, Brambledown is an enclave of just 11 contemporary-style detached and self-detached homes surrounded by land zoned for agricultural use, ensuring privacy for buyers.
Three of the four-bed-plus-study properties have sold since the Glenamuck Road scheme - developed by Collaboration Land - was launched in May. The remaining eight are being relaunched this weekend, under a new agent. All the 11 homes have been fully completed.
Prices start at €695,000 for a semi-detached house, while the detached version costs from €755,000. Sizes range from 2,153 sq ft to 2,250 sq ft.
Designed by Coady Architects, the three-storey properties are arranged in an L shape, so they all have back gardens with good orientations; numbers one to four have west-facing rear gardens, while numbers five to 11 face south.
The timber-framed, A3-rated houses have higher-than-standard ceilings to the ground floor and first floor, lending a sense of spaciousness. The ground floor is home to a living room with a log-effect electric fire and a 430-sq ft open-plan kitchen/dining/living space to the rear. The handle-less kitchen and quartz worktops were supplied by Kitchen Elegance and come with Siemens appliances, including a wine cooler. A sliding door opens on to a utility room.
There are also handle-less built-in wardrobes from Bedroom Elegance to the three bedrooms on the first level.
On the top floor is an ensuite bedroom and across from that is another space has been floored, plastered and fitted with two large Velux windows: this room can't be sold as another bedroom under building regulations but it could be an office or nursery.
Brambledown is near the M50, with Dublin Bus and Luas stops within walking distance.
The showhouses are on view tomorrow and Sunday, from 2pm to 4pm.
