Rooms with a View in Walkinstown
Wilkins View, Walkinstown, Dublin 12
Three properties are still for sale from the first phase of Wilkins View, a development of three and four-bed homes in Walkinstown that’s aimed at mid-market house-hunters in southwest Dublin.
The initial 20 units at the scheme, situated in a quiet cul-de-sac off Limekiln Avenue, were launched in September. When Wilkins View is finished, there will be 56 homes in all, in a variety of house types. The development is being built by Jackie Greene Construction, a 40-year-old house-building firm responsible for other residential projects in the area, including Fortfield Square, St Anne’s and Hazel Park in Terenure.
At Wilkins View, purchasers of the three-beds have mostly been first-time buyers armed with sizeable deposits or older buyers trading down, while the four-beds have appealed to trader-uppers.
For now, there are two three-beds for sale at Wilkins View. These measure between 1,281 sq ft and 1,335 sq ft and are priced from €440,000. A single four-bed semi-detached property is also available; its accommodation spans 1,937 sq ft over three floors and the home has a price-tag of €565,000.
At the three-beds, there is a kitchen/dining/family lounge to the rear with access to the back garden, and a separate living room to the front. Upstairs is a master ensuite, two bedrooms, a storage area and a family bathroom.
The homes were designed to have a building energy rating of A3.
The east side of the scheme is beside playing fields, with St Paul’s Secondary School to the west. The villages of Templeogue and Terenure are close by, while the centre of Dublin is five miles away. The neighbourhood is served by the Luas red line and bus routes 18, 56A, 77, and 77A.
The showhouses at Wilkins View will be open from 2pm to 4pm tomorrow.
