Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Property - - SUNDAY PROPERTY -


THE three-bed­room semi-de­tached houses in Bal­lisk Homes’s Rahillion devel­op­ment in Don­abate are pitched at the up­per end of the first-time buyer mar­ket. The devel­op­ment also in­cludes four- and five-bed­room homes; all of the houses are A-rated and fea­ture air-to-wa­ter heat pumps, and high-per­for­mance win­dows and doors. The three-bed­room semis have 116sqm of liv­ing space.

The fit­ted kitchens are by Cur­tis Kitchens of Na­van, and the bath­room tiling and san­i­tary ware will be as per the show homes in the devel­op­ment, which will be fin­ished in June, with heated towel rails in all the bath­rooms and en-suites.

The houses are wired for TV, tele­phone and broad­band, as well as for an in­truder alarm, and have a low-main­te­nance ex­te­rior. Each comes with off-street park­ing for two cars, a gar­den pa­tio and 10-year struc­tural guar­an­tee. Fin­ishes in­clude brick and stone ex­ter­nal de­tails, and gran­ite-paved drive­ways.

The devel­op­ment in­cludes a five-acre park to the north on the banks of Roger­stown es­tu­ary, which will ap­peal to young fam­i­lies.

Don­abate is a quiet and scenic coastal town ly­ing ap­prox­i­mately 20km north of Dublin city cen­tre, with a good mix of shops and restau­rants, and two ex­cel­lent beaches — Por­trane and Don­abate. Lo­cal ameni­ties in­clude a com­mu­nity cen­tre, Su­pervalu su­per­mar­ket, post of­fice and credit union.
