Net a new home on site of old tennis court
Broadlands, Killiney, Co Dublin
Broadlands, a new development directly across the road from Killiney Golf Club and backing on to the upmarket suburb's Cluny Park, has been in fruition for more than a decade.
In 2006, O'Flynn Construction, one of the country's biggest developers, spent €22m on buying Broadlands, a vast pile with tennis courts on Ballinclea Road.
Planning permission to build a residential scheme was denied in the spring of 2008, just as the property market was set to implode. O'Flynn returned to property development in 2014.
Broadlands is now a high-end scheme of 28 family homes. The prices, naturally, reflect the properties' salubrious environs: a two-storey, three-bed costs from €635,000, while a three-storey version, with a second living room on the first floor, is priced from €720,000. A four-bed, two-storey type is selling for €860,000, while a three-storey style that can be used as a four or five-bed home costs from €865,000.
The A2-rated properties have hand-painted kitchens and wardrobes from Cawleys Furniture. Three showhouses will be on view tomorrow and Sunday, between 2pm and 5pm.
