This autumn has seen a flurry of new apartments going on the market, from Eustace Court in Dun Laoghaire to Hamilton Park in Castleknock. The newest apartment development on the block is at Ardilea Crescent in Clonskeagh.

Three-storey houses finished in yellow brick were launched in April 2016 at Ardilea Crescent, which is set on a leafy cul-de-sac just off the Heidelberg estate. The scheme is being built by Galway-based O'Malley Construction, which has sold 19 houses on the five-acre site. The company has constructed almost 10,000 homes in Ireland since it was set up in 1971.

The latest phase at Ardilea Crescent is a block of 26 two-bed apartments and three-bed penthouses, which are coming on the market this weekend. There will be 48 apartments in all at the development.

The block was designed and priced with the upper end of the south Dublin residential market in mind: prices start at €495,000 for an apartment, with sizes ranging from 936 sq ft to 958 sq ft. The penthouses, which have between 1,238 sq ft and 1,270 sq ft of living space, cost from €765,000. The building overlooks a landscaped green space that includes terraced lawns with seating, pergolas, and a fenced natural playground.

Each unit has an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area, a balcony or terrace, an ensuite master bedroom, a main bathroom, and plenty of storage space. The kitchen, from QK Living, has a matt finish kitchen, marbled quartz worktops, and a full suite of Neff appliances.

The sanitary ware and floor and wall tiling in the bathrooms and ensuites come from Villeroy & Boch. In the bedrooms, the wardrobes have a cashmere finish and a classic oak interior, while the wardrobes in the master bedroom have a motion sensor light.

There is underfloor heating throughout each unit, negating the need for space-consuming radiators.

Viewings will be held tomorrow and Sunday, from 11am to 12:30pm.
