Moving heaven and earth at Clay Farm
Clay Farm, Leopardstown, Dublin 18
When Clay Farm, one of the largest housing developments to launch in Dublin 18 since The Gallops in Leopardstown in 1990, was released a year ago, so many prospective buyers lined up that the selling agent had to issue tickets to prevent overnight queuing.
The south Co Dublin scheme is being built by Park Developments which secured planning approval in 2016 for 163 houses and 262 apartments for the first section of Clay Farm. It then submitted a planning application for 927 extra homes to An Bord Pleanála.
The planning authority earlier this month gave the go-ahead after securing extra information from the developer after initially refusing the plan. Approval comes just as the selling agents prepare to release the next phase of Clay Farm this weekend. The tranche consists of 26 three- and four-bed homes from five different house types, ranging in size from 1,173 sq ft to 1,733 sq ft. Prices for the three-beds start at €500,000, while the four-beds cost from €570,000.
The facade of each property has a brick-and-render finish, with Tobermore permeable paving to the front driveway. Inside, there is a custom-designed kitchen from Nolan Kitchens and access to super-fast broadband. The energy-efficient homes have solar PV panels.
Clay Farm is just 150m from the Leopardstown Valley Luas station.
