The North Co Dublin rural village of Ballyboughal has long been popular among pilots and airport workers. After all, Dublin Airport is just a 20-minute drive away.
The original Cnoc Dubh was launched at the peak of the Celtic Tiger, but the property crash called a temporary halt to the development. Glenveagh Properties bought the site and began building 57 completely new houses there, launching them in 2018.
There are eight homes available at Cnoc Dubh. Four are from the Kestrel design, which spans 1,850 sq ft and is priced from €499,950. Two of the houses are 1,725-sq ft four-bed bungalows from the Dove style, which cost from €550,000, and a further two are five-bed detached Sanderlings, which measure 2,105 sq ft apiece and are selling for €595,000.
The Kestrel is in a double-fronted style, with render to the gabled-fronted part of the façade and brick to the other side. A slate canopy hangs over the brick-fronted side and over the anthracite-grey composite front door.
There is parking for two cars in the paved driveway.
Internally, there is a front living room to the left of the hallway and a study to the right. To the rear, there is a large open-plan kitchen/dining/living area, where BeSpace supplied the kitchen units. Upstairs, the shaker-style wardrobes to the master and second bedrooms also come from BeSpace.
The M1 and M50 are a few minutes' drive away, while Dublin city centre is 21km away.
Viewings are by appointment.
