New homes: Luxury and landscaping in Castleknock

Diswellstown Manor is a development of family homes close to the Phoenix Park

 

Originally planned for a mix of apartments and housing units, Diswellstown Manor is now being developed for three, four and five-bedroom family homes. This week, 20 of the scheme of 118 houses go on sale. Built by Andrews Construction, the development is due for completion by 2017.

Funded by Nama, Diswellstown Manor is located opposite Castleknock Hotel and Golf Club and has easy access to Castleknock village, schools, sports facilities and the Phoenix Park.

Landscaping will play a central role in defining the character of the 14-acre estate, of which five are dedicated to mature parkland. An orchard, playing fields and green spaces and trees will be a distinctive feature of the development.

The houses are semi-detached with the four-bedroom measuring 134sq m (1,447sq ft) and will sell from €480,000. The five-bedroom version, measuring 189sq m (2,038sq ft), will sell from €555,000.

On sale with Hooke and MacDonald, the houses come with a fitted kitchen and bathroom, built-in wardrobes, master ensuite, downstairs toilet and a 12-metre rear garden. There is ample storage room throughout. The bright and airy living-room features a window seat while the bedrooms, particularly in the larger house, offer alternative potential as a playroom, den or second living-room. Ventura Design has cleverly styled a room with this look in mind, instead of the usual repetitive bedroom layout.

Energy efficiency is a key feature of Diswellstown Manor which has an A2 Ber rating. Solar panels on the roof and a rainwater harvesting system come as standard.

A highly efficient, user-tailored ventilation system provides fresh air to the house all year round. The gas-fired central heating also comes with multiple heating zone control.

Showhouses are on view today from 3-6pm, Friday 1-2pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 1.30-4pm.

Diswellstown Manor joins Fairhaven and Hamilton Park as the newest housing developments in the Castleknock area.
