Bolton Hall House, a five-bay property with paddocks and walled gardens that was built in Rathfarnham in 1818, is the focal point for Bolton Park, a development of four-bed new-builds with design elements echoing those of the main Georgian building.

The scheme, which launched a year ago, was developed by husband-and-wife team Neil and Aoife Collins, who run Homeland Projects.

The pair also restored and sold Bolton Hall House itself, for an estimated €1.5m. In addition, Homeland Projects, which acquired the 4.5ac site in 2015, transformed the old estate's paper mills and stables into an amalgamated building with three individual homes. Two of these coach homes, as they were known, were released in May, along with three- and four-bed new builds.

Of the latter tranche, there is still one four-bed detached home and one four-bed semi-detached house on the market. The detached home spans 1,840 sq ft and is priced from €840,000, while the semi-d is a showhouse that extends over 1,830 sq ft.

The site also features 163 Ballyboden Road, a single-storey, end-of-terrace cottage. This property, which adjoins Bolton Hall, has 876 sq ft of accommodation - including two bedrooms - and a price-tag of €475,000.
