Schools around the corner at Fairbrook
Fairbrook, Swords, Co Dublin
Millers Glen hit the headlines in 2014 when house-hunters queued up overnight to bag their house of choice at the development, the first new scheme to go on the market in north Dublin in seven years.
Fairbrook, its neighbouring sister development, may not have attracted as much publicity, but sales at the scheme of three and four-beds have proved steady since going on the market in September.
As the new property selling season gears up, selling agent Sherry FitzGerald is marketing the 20 homes left at Fairbrook out of the original 85 launched as part of the first trance. There are more phases of Fairbrook planned for the future.
There are four styles of home for sale here, built on part of the vast tract of land owned on the edge of Swords by developer Gannon Homes.
Prices start at €265,000 for the three-bed 1,194-sq ft townhouse, while prices for the three-bed end-of-terrace and semi-detached version, which are 1,216 sq ft in size, begin at €285,000.
The four-bed detached homes, which have 1,582 sq ft worth of floor space, cost from €405,000.
More than 100 families have so far moved into properties at Fairbrook, many of them lured by the two primary schools opposite the development and the proximity to neighbourhood shops, according to the selling agent. Swords Village is 2km away, while Airside Retail Centre is 3km, as is the Pavilions Shopping Centre.
The exteriors at Fairbrook are finished in a mottled brown brick and cream render, with additional brick-work detail above the first-floor windows.
Instead of front and side walls, bow-topped iron-cast railings enclose the cobble-locked drives.
The rear gardens are seeded and are accessed to the side by a timber gate. The kitchens and wardrobes are by Cawleys and feature soft-close drawers and matt neutral finishes.
Viewings of the showhouses will be held between 2pm-4pm tomorrow and Sunday.
