The latest phase of Francis Rhatigan’s Abbott’s Glen on Stocking Avenue in Knocklyon, Dublin, just outside the city limits, comes with a carrot to buyers who sign early.

The first four buyers are being offered a free design consultation with interiors architect Denise O’Connor of Optimise Design as well as a voucher for €1,000 to spend at Danish design furniture firm Bo Concept.

This launch comprises eight three-bedroom duplexes, four with ground-floor entrances and four accessed from the first floor.

Designed by Duignan Dooley Architects (DDA), there are two styles of homes for sale. Those who love the feeling of light and being on top of the world will prefer the first-floor residences where the master bedroom is located at entrance level and a flight of stairs leads to the open-plan kitchen and living/dining room. The climb is worth it for the room boasts views across the city that will look really atmospheric at night.

The kitchens have matt cafe au lait coloured contemporary units and composite stone worktops, and double doors lead out from the living room to a glass balustrade balcony. Facing northwest and towards the road and roundabout, the views are somewhat compromised by the noise of passing traffic.

Concrete floors

There are two bedrooms at this level with the master bedroom set to the front where there is a large corner window and an internal shower en-suite bathroom. The bedrooms are standard size and are fitted with duck-egg grey wardrobes by Ballyfermot-based Cawley’s Furniture. The properties have concrete floors to dampen down noise transference.

A useful addition – inspired by European apartment living – to the upper units is a lock-up, for bikes, bins, sports gear and children’s buggies that is located at ground level.

The ground-floor units open into a small hall off which is the first of the property’s three bedrooms. The kitchen and living room are divided by sliding glass doors. The kitchen will amply accommodate a dining table, providing two separate living spaces – something the upstairs homes do not have.

The dual-aspect living room is bright and feels very private with French windows opening out to a south-facing outdoor space with a large patio area that feels more like a courtyard than a garden but that may change when it has been further landscaped by owners. Almost completely enclosed, it will be a very safe space for small children. 

The top-floor properties measure 102sq m/1098sq ft and are asking €310,000 apiece, while the ground-floor units measure 124sq m/1,335sq ft and are asking €340,000 each through agents SherryFitzGerald. 

All properties come with one parking space.
