Shandon Wood is a bijou development of just six terraced three-storey houses by developer David Dowling of Donode Building. The A-rated, four-bed homes are built on the site of an old house that came to the market with planning, and all have been designed with south-facing gardens.

The exteriors feature Acheson & Glover tumbled brick in a warm pink shade, granite sills and capping around the window boxing. The alu-clad windows and doors have been supplied by Rationale, and each property comes with two parking spaces, one in front of the house and a second across the street.

Inside the houses have 2.6m ceiling heights at entrance level with standard ceiling heights on the first and second floors.

The showhouse has been smartly fitted out by Elk House Interiors, who added a moody paintscape of Templar Grey by Colortrend to the stairs, stairwell, internal doors and in the kitchen, by Keith Alexander Design, where there are two different designs to choose from.

Each has antiqued glass as a splashback and built-in spice shelves, with one option offering a sleek integrated sink on the island. Comprised of the same quartz as the countertops, it has a copper base and a Qooker hot water tap.

In one design an unusual semicircular banquette seat is set into the island. The second option features a more traditional rectangular island. The in-frame units have marble-effect quartz countertops and can be painted in a colour of choice. The package includes high spec Siemens appliances and a utility room off the kitchen. There is access to the garden from both the kitchen and living areas.

The living room to the front has an electric fire as a focal point, and a large corner window to flood the room with light.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor. All are doubles, and one has a smart internal en suite bathroom. The family bathroom is a bright space, and is tiled with large format squares supplied by Project Tiles.  

The master bedroom on the second floor offers a real sense of escape. From this window there are views in the distance of Howth Head. The room runs the depth of the property, and has a wall of storage, supplied by Bspace, formerly Bedroom Elegance.

The naturally-lit shower en suite has a wet room-like floor with a tray concealed underneath to prevent any leaks.

The mid-terrace units measure 156sq m/1680sq ft and prices start from €875,000. Asking prices for the larger end-of-terrace houses, which have a bigger kitchen, living dining room and measure 170sq m/1840sq ft start from €1 million, while the mid-terrace showhouse is seeking €945,000 through agents Savills.

The homes are just off Shandon Park on the Monkstown Road, and about equidistant between Monkstown and Blackrock villages.
