Second phase 'mines Willow Glen popularity
Willow Glen Carrickmines, Dublin 18
Asking price: €385,000
Agent: Savills New Homes (01) 618 1300
The first phase of Willow Glen, one of a slew of new developments in Carrickmines, attracted both first-time buyers and families trading up from smaller homes.
There is diverse mix of property styles at the Glenamuck Road scheme, which launched at the end of October. Among the 28 homes are one and two-bed apartments, three-bed duplexes, and three-storey four-bed terraced and semi-detached houses. The duplexes proved attractive to novice buyers because they cost about €50,000 less than an average three-bed semi in the area, according to the selling agent.
Willow Glen will see the second and final phase released this weekend, with seven properties for sale.
Prices will start at €385,000 for the last two-bed dual-aspect apartment. A four-bed mid-terrace style costs from €565,000, while the end-of-terrace and semi-detached four-bed designs are priced from €575,000.
The four-bed showhouse is selling for €625,000 and includes contents. The A-rated houses have a brick-and-render front exterior, with concrete roof tiles and alu-clad windows and doors. Viewings from 11am to 1pm tomorrow.
