South County Dublin families trading up are the target market for the new four-bed homes at Dún Gaoithe, a Sandyford scheme named after a farmhouse owned by Frank Aiken, a chief of staff of the anti-treaty IRA who went on to become a minister in successive Fianna Fáil governments and later became Tánaiste.
Coshon is developing the scheme of 61 properties near Aiken's Village and launched it almost a year ago. All of the development's three-bed homes have since gone sale agreed. Some 35 one and two-bed apartments, as well as three-bed duplexes, will be built on the site later this year.
For now, the final release of Dún Gaoithe's houses is on the market. The tranche of 12 four-bed homes launched on February 8 and there are still six semi-detached and detached properties available, with prices ranging from €565,000 to €649,500.
The A3-rated houses have double-glazed UPVC windows throughout and PV panels on the roof that generate electricity. There is parking for two cars to the front, and a garden and paved patio to the rear.
The kitchens, with their stone countertops and soft-close doors and drawers, come from Keane Kitchens. They include integrated Siemens appliances if buyers return signed contracts within 21 days. Keane Kitchens also supplied the shaker-style wardrobes to the bedrooms.
Dún Gaoithe is served by the 47 bus route and is close to the M50's junction 14. The Glencairn Luas stop is a 15-minute walk away. Viewings are by appointment.
