Commuters on a budget are the prime target for the developers of Clonrath. The development is situated at the edge of Lusk, so it is surrounded by countryside and is a ten-minute drive from the beach, yet is just 23km from the centre of Dublin.
McGarrell Reilly Group is developing three, four and five-bed family homes at the Skerries Road site. However, there are currently just two properties available, namely four-bed detached houses. Each measures 1,475 sq ft and is priced from €415,000.
The two-storey block-built, double-fronted homes are traditional in style, but with contemporary finishes such as UPVC windows and an Ultratech front door. There is a cobble-lock driveway to the front of each house, while the rear gardens come with a patio paved in buff granite.
Internally, there is a custom-designed fitted kitchen with soft-close doors and drawers from Kitchen Elegance. The main bathroom and master ensuite feature polished chrome heated towel rails and Twyford sanitaryware, while the shaker-style built-in bedroom wardrobes were fitted by McCauls. The heating system at the A3-rated homes can be controlled remotely via a Climote app.
Clonrath is within walking distance of the Rush and Lusk train station, from where there is a commuter rail service with more than 20 departures each weekday to Grand Canal Dock. Lusk is a ten-minute drive from Junction 4 of the M1 motorway, and the Fingal Express coach also serves the city centre, via the Port Tunnel.
Viewings at Clonrath are by appointment.
