Mid-market buyers the target at Walkinstown
Wilkin's Court, Walkinstown, Dublin 12
The name Wilkin's Court is a nod to the agrarian heritage of Walkinstown, the mature Dublin suburb called after Wilkins, a tenant farmer who lived in the area in the 15th century.
Housing in the area took off in earnest in the 1930s and the latest addition to its residential landscape is Wilkin's Court, situated off Limekiln Lane. It will consist of 61 houses, duplexes and apartments when it's finished.
The final phase of the scheme, which is targeting mid-market house-hunters, was released earlier this year and the selling agents are reopening the showhouses this weekend to market the remaining 12 three and four-bed homes still for sale.
Prices for the three-beds start at €485,000 for a 1,310-sq ft semi-detached type, while the four-beds range in price from €555,000 to €590,000, depending on the chosen style. The fully furnished three-bed showhouse is also going on the market, at €520,000, while the four-bed showhouse costs from €595,000. The timber-framed homes are finished in a combination of brick and render. There is a garden and a paved patio to the rear of each house, while the front driveway has a cobblelock finish. Inside, the fitted kitchen is custom-designed.
The A3-rated homes have PV panels and a mechanical heat recovery and ventilation system.
Viewings take place tomorrow and Sunday, from 2pm to 4pm. Enquiries to: Sherry FitzGerald New Homes (01) 667 1888
