New homes: tall storeys and sea views at Sutton Cross

Five of the new homes in this Sutton development enjoy sea views, while all nine have an A2 BER rating. Prices start at €850,000

 

The Kavanagh brothers New Generation Homes is behind Warren Lodge, a development of nine new A2-rated homes on the site of the former Sutton Nursing Home on the Dublin Road, about a five-minute walk from Sutton Cross.

The same developers launched Hillfield, a development of 11 five-bed detached houses asking €1.2 million in Rathmichael last November. The first six released have all sold.

Five of the properties at Warren Lodge come with stunning sea views. All five are semidetached: four are 235sq m (2,530sq feet) Avalon-style houses to the front; one is a 228sq m (2,457sq ft) property to the rear.

Vista

The vista through the big picture windows in the livingroom, mediaroom and master bedroom of the showhouse changes constantly. It is one of four properties at the front of the development and on the day of viewing, the sea was like glass, with channels eddying through the low tide. It’s the kind of house where a tide clock would make the ideal housewarming present.

Classically designed by Arlene McIntyre of Ventura Design, the glass-fronted fire in the sittingroom will have to compete with the distracting scenery outside. To the rear of the house is the spacious eat-in kitchen with quartz-topped counters and sliding doors that lead to a small northwest-facing garden.

This house style has a second living space situated on the first floor to make the most of the seascapes, with two double bedrooms at this level.

On the second floor are two more doubles. The master has a sea view, a walk-in wardrobe and shower en suite. A study completes the accommodation and could act as a fifth bedroom.

Best views

Of the five properties with sea views, No 1 has the best views of the lot, according to agents McPeake Auctioneers. Asking €935,000, the property has been sale agreed. Nos 2 and 3 are asking €930,000 each. The showhouse, No 4, has still to be priced.

To the rear is a slightly smaller style of house, Oceania. Two are semidetached and three are terraced. Each measures 228sq m (2,457sq ft).

These have three doubles on the first floor with the master bedroom and study on the second floor. The mid-terrace is asking €850,000, while the end-of-terrace houses are €895,000.

Semidetached No 5 is the only property to the rear with sea views and is priced at €905,000. The adjoining No 6 is asking €895,000.

Savings

All of the A2-rated houses are heated using an electric heat pump system by Dimplex, which claims to offer annual savings of up to 20 per cent compared to natural gas. Radiators, fronted with black glass, have been installed in the showhouse but the off-white option is a popular alternative.

The development neighbours St Fintan’s High School for boys.
