Setting sights on rare find in capital
Dawson Place, Arbour Hill, Dublin 7
New houses in the centre of Dublin are an even rarer sight than freshly-built apartments.
Indeed, Dawson Place on Arbour Hill, near the hipster coffee shops and restaurants in the gentrifying neighbourhoods of Smithfield and Stoneybatter, is the first housing scheme in this part of the city centre in more than a decade.
The Richmond Homes-built estate, which was launched last weekend, consists of 25 two and three-bed terraced and semi-detached houses, all just a five-minute walk from the Museum Luas stop and from Heuston Station.
Dawson Place is also a few minutes' walk from the Four Courts and O'Connell Bridge.
Prices start at €445,000 for the two-bed style, where sizes range from 947 sq ft to 1,206 sq ft.
A three-bed with between 1,141 sq ft and 1,311 sq ft of accommodation costs from €535,000.
Some of the properties come with a study and a carport, but all have kitchen units with a contemporary matt lacquer finish and integrated appliances. In the bathrooms, there are heated towel rails, as well as floor and feature wall tiling.
