Sweep in for a 'stake in energy-efficient homes
Killart, Cabinteely, Dublin 18
Cabinteely House, built in south Dublin in the 1760s, was once home to Joe McGrath of Irish Hospitals' Sweepstakes fame. The controversial lottery, which helped fund Irish hospitals for half a century, made McGrath, a veteran of the 1916 Easter Rising, a wealthy man.
These days, Cabinteely House forms the centrepiece of the 112-ac Cabinteely Park. Next to the public park is Killart, an upmarket scheme of 17 homes being built by Kingscroft Developments. For now, there are four four-bed semis for sale, each with a starting price-tag of €725,000. The houses have between 1,916 sq ft and 2,034 sq ft of living space, all spread across three floors.
The exteriors are finished in a mix of brick and render, complemented by Alu-Clad window frames, while the custom-designed kitchen is in a contemporary style. The A3-rated homes are likely to appeal to downsizers who are seeking a low-maintenance, energy-efficient property in the locality. Family buyers will also be drawn to Killart because of the number of amenities and well-regarded schools in Cabinteely.
Killart is located on the western side of the N11, and the stop for the 145 bus route is nearby.
Viewings will be held between 2pm and 4pm tomorrow and Sunday. Enquiries to: Beirne & Wise (01) 288090.
