De­scrip­tion: Fi­nal phase of 14 four-beds priced from ¤430,000 to ¤450,000 Agent: REA Coo­nan Rath­coole, on the pe­riph­ery of Dublin, was once the first stag­ing post on the jour­ney west and south from Dublin. In far less dis­tant times the com­ple­tion of the N7 Naas Road al­lowed that jour­ney time to be greatly short­ened, and in the 21st cen­tury the Luas stop nearby at Sag­gart has also helped to lure Dublin buy­ers far­ther west as the vil­lage has ex­panded to be­come a com­muter town that of­fers all the ru­ral at­trac­tions along with good travel times to Dublin city (the Red Cow Inn is about 20 min­utes’ drive away).

Croftwell is a small de­vel­op­ment of 60 houses lo­cated just 150m from An Poitín Sti l , a thatched pub and restau­rant on the Naas Road that was built on the site of an inn dat­ing from 1649. The ar­rival of the Avoca shop­ping em­po­rium has con­sol­i­dated Rath­coole as a des­ti­na­tion in its own right.

Built by broth­ers Colin and Gareth Stan­ley of Mi­lanville, which com­pleted nearby Aubrey Manor, 44 of the 60 units have been sold with the first sold off plans in Au­gust 2016 and a sec­ond phase launch­ing last March in which four-bed townhouses of 157sq m/1,700sq ft sold for prices from ¤395,000 to ¤420,000.

This is the third and fi­nal phase and brings 14 four-bed semi-de­tached houses to mar­ket. The yel- low-brick-fronted three-storey prop­er­ties have dormer win­dows on the sec­ond floor, with the ac­com­mo­da­tion set over the first and sec­ond floors with two bed­rooms on each. All are dou­bles. The mas­ter is on the first floor and has a shower en suite. The two bed­rooms on the sec­ond floor share the fam­ily bath­room.

The houses range in price from ¤430,000 to ¤450,000 through agent REA Coo­nan and mea­sure about 167sq m (1,800sq ft). In­cluded in the price are all kitchen ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing wash­ing ma­chine and drier. The smart painted units are by QK Liv­ing.
