Unique builds with hillside views
Hillfield, Rathmichael, Co Dublin
If you have sufficiently deep pockets and yearn for a hillside Dublin home that commands views from the Sugar Loaf mountain right down to the coast, then these two detached houses in Rathmichael may fit the bill.
They are part of Hillfield, an 11-unit enclave of four-bed and five-bed detached homes. The houses and their private 0.4ac plots are arranged in a horseshoe shape around a landscaped common area directly off Ferndale Road at the foothills of the Dublin Mountains.
The development, accessed by a long, sweeping avenue, is surrounded by mature dense woodland and plenty of green space.
Hillfield was first launched near the end of 2014 by New Generation Homes, run by brothers Greg and Hugh Kavanagh.
The company has built other high-end schemes, such as the Sutton seaside development Warren Lodge and Grosvenor Manor in Rathmines.
No.6 and No.7 Hillfield, the final two homes for sale in the Rathmichael scheme, cost from €1.3m and €1.25m, respectively.
The first, No.6, is a four-bed, four-bath split-level bungalow with a full-height entrance lobby that connects the living and bedroom accommodation. There is a large mezzanine floor overlooking the kitchen could have a variety of uses, depending on the purchaser's own taste.
The entire building has 3,390 sq ft of space, spread out over two floors, but there is potential to create another split-level floor area.
No.7, the bungalow, has a floor space of 3,369 sq ft, five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a separate garage.
Like its neighbour, No.7 has a full-height lobby linking the living and bedroom accommodation.
It has space for a large living room and kitchen, in addition to the separate dining room and family/living rooms.
All of these rooms have sliding double doors leading to the landscaped garden and to the extensive patio area to the side of the house.
At both properties, the kitchens, which come with energy efficient Belling appliances, are supplied by Celtic Kitchens.
Ferndale Road is 2.3km from Shankill Village, where there is a Dart station. It is 5km to both the Luas stop at Cherrywood and to the M50.
