New homes: three- and four-bedroom houses in Drumcondra from €665,000

New development in north Dublin will meet a lot of criteria for young families, or those looking for a bigger family home

 

A rare development of new three- and four-bed homes in Drumcondra will tick a lot of boxes for families.

Located in the quiet and mature neighbourhood of Sion Hill Road, some 69 houses are planned by builders Maplewood Residential for Sion Hill Park, with the first 15 going on sale this weekend.

This phase consists of four-bed semi-detached houses ranging in size from 171sq m (1,840sq ft) to 177sq m (1,905sq ft), with prices starting from €665,000 to €700,000. Construction of phase one homes will finish on a rolling basis from May to October.

Deceptively tall

The spacious houses have three floors and are deceptively tall. There are views of Croke Park and the Millennium Spire from the striking second floor master suite, which includes a wardrobe-lined hallway to the en-suite bathroom.

The top floor also has a large, sunny “store room”, complete with Velux window and blind, that could be used as an office, games room, den or another bedroom.

The first floor includes a large en-suite bedroom, generous second bedroom and single third room, all with built-in wardrobes.

There is plenty of living and dining space on the ground floor.

The painted solid wood kitchen comes with an island and breakfast bar, quartz stone worktops, fitted appliances and integrated fridge. There is a separate utility room with a sink and worktops.

Heat pumps

The houses have very efficient A2 building energy ratings (BER) and air source heat pumps that also provide hot water on demand.

Each floor is thermostatically controlled. The homes are covered for 10 years under the HomeBond Structural Guarantee Scheme.

Other features include a driveway with parking for two cars and a sunny back garden with paved patio area, grass and timber fence.

The proximity to a great selection of schools will be a draw for families, says agent Gina Kennedy of DNG. Nearby schools include Scoil Mhuire, Ard Scoil Rís Secondary, St Vincent De Paul and Dominican College.

The homes are a 10-minute drive from the IFSC, only 15 minutes from the airport and there’s easy access to the M1 and the M50. Viewing times are Sat, April 25th and Sun, April 26th from 2pm to 4pm.
