Wide appeal to buyers in leafy coastal 'burb
Grangeabbey, Monkstown, Dublin
New builds in Monkstown, the leafy coastal suburb nestled between Blackrock and Dun Laoghaire, are few and far between. So it's no surprise that all but three of the homes that make up Grangeabbey were reserved during last weekend's launch.
As many as 300 house-hunters showed up at to view Grangeabbey last Friday, followed by further viewings at the weekend. The scheme appealed to both downsizers and first-time buyers due to its mix of three and four-bed terraced and semi-detached houses, a one-bed apartment and a two-bed duplex, with prices ranging from €275,000 and €665,000, an unusually low price point for Monkstown.
At present, there are three four-bed semis still for sale, each one measuring 1,700 sq ft and costing from €630,000.
The elevations to the three-storey homes incorporate a mixture of brick and reconstituted stone, complemented by cream UPVC windows. There is cobblelock to the front driveway and paths, and the back garden comes with a paved patio.
Inside, there is a feature fireplace in the living room, painted shaker style internal doors throughout, contemporary-style fitted wardrobes to all the bedrooms, and a handle-free kitchen with quartz stone worktops. Viewings are by appointment.
