When Knockrabo, a 20-acre site on the grounds of a Victorian house of the same name, situated opposite the gates to Mount Anville School in Goatstown, Dublin 14, launched last February it promised an unusually high ratio of green space to residential.

More than four of its 20 acres is open green space and remains home to a number of mature and listed trees, including several giant sequoias that are more than 200 years old.  

You can see three of these redwoods on the mature green to the front of Knockrabo Park where agent DNG has launched six sizeable five-bed houses.  

Set high above the city with sweeping views across Dublin Bay, the Maplewood Residential scheme will comprise about 220 units when complete. To date 42 houses, three-, four- and five-bed properties, have been built in this O’Mahony Pike-designed scheme. Thirty-eight of these are already sold, including two of the large five-beds which have just launched.

Estate’s largest properties

The latest five-beds are the estate’s largest properties. The semi-detached homes are split-level in layout and measure between 245sq m (2,637sq ft) and 248sq m (2,669sq ft) in size over five floors.

The properties include a painted kitchen with quartz countertops and Neff appliances as well as a dormer master suite at the top with city views, a walk-in wardrobe and a large shower en-suite with his and hers sinks.

The properties face northeast to the front and have southeast-facing gardens that average 100sq m.

Developer Maplewood Residential bought the lands with equity partner Broadhaven Credit Partners for more than €25 million. At launch last spring eight of the semi-detached units, smaller five-bedroom homes of 207sq m (2,228sq ft) in size, had asking prices from €920,000.

Prices for this latest launch of large five-bedroom units range from €1.1 million to €1.2 million with the showhouse, designed by Helen Turkington, expected to sell for about €1.3million.
