The arrival of wet autumn weather means ice-cream season is truly over for another year. But house hunters in Churchtown can sample a taste of HB ice-cream's heritage at homes built on the site that once housed the factory behind one of the country's most iconic brands.
The development is located off the Whitehall Road, close to the Nutgrove Shopping Centre and within walking distance of Churchtown village. Hazelbrook Square launched there back in 2016, becoming one of the few residential estates of any significance to launch in Dublin 14 after the crash. Last weekend saw the release of the first 17 of the 27 houses earmarked for Hazelbrook Court, the newest phase of the development. Eight of those 17 homes have already been booked.
Almost all the homes in the latest phase are three-bed terraced or end-of-terrace houses ranging in size from 1,147 sq ft to 1,324 sq ft, with starting prices going from €550,000 to €630,000. The three-bed houses are arranged over two floors, though there is also one three-storey, four-bed end-of-terrace home available: it spans 1,815 sq ft and costs from €760,000.
Designed by Brazil & Associates, the properties have a combination of brick and render to the facade, with zinc-effect metal over details such as the bay windows and reconstituted granite to the sills of the double-glazed windows from Carlson. Inside, each bespoke painted kitchen - handmade from solid ash - features shaker-style doors, soft-close drawers, tongued and grooved end-panelling, quartz worktops and fully integrated appliances.
The living rooms have been fitted with a flame-effect, energy-efficient electric fire with a stone surround, while the bathrooms and ensuites come with Villeroy & Boch sanitaryware and Kludi mixer taps.
Churchtown itself is just a few minutes' walk from Dundrum Town Centre and the Windy Arbour and Dundrum Luas stops.
Viewings at Hazelbrook Court will continue tomorrow and Sunday, from 2pm to 4pm.
