De­scrip­tion: Three- and four-bed­room A-rated houses a two-minute walk to the Dart sta­tion. Agent: DNG Port­marnock is a hive of new homes ac­tiv­ity.

St Marnock’s Bay is a devel­op­ment by Bal­ly­more at the coastal vil­lage’s Dart Sta­tion about 1.2km from the vil­lage cen­tre. Launc h e d last year, its three-storey four-bed 1,793sq ft homes, aimed at trader-up­pers. were ask­ing ¤630,000 in June. When com­plete it will compromise 101 homes.

Now, across the street, Re­gency and Bain Cap­i­tal Credit have un­veiled Sta­tion Manor, on Sta­tion Road, a scheme of three-, four- and five-bed homes sit­u­ated be­tween two older de­vel­op­ments: The Kilns built by Matt Gal­lagher around 2004 and The Links, which dates from the late 1990s. The 6.5 acre site was pur­chased in 2014.

This es­tate fea­tures tra­di­tional look­ing three-bed mid- and end of ter­race houses, as well as three-storey four-beds, that in­clude semi-, mid- and end of ter­race units. De­signed by O’Ma­hony Pike, when com­plete, it will com­prise 62 houses and 51 apart­ments.

To launch the firm is bring- ing 22 units to mar­ket. Of these six are three-bed homes, set in ter­races of three and rang­ing in pr i c e from ¤460,000 to ¤475,000 with sizes from 111sq m /1,195sq ft to 113 sq m/1,216 sq ft.

Pedes­trian lane

A key fea­ture of these ter­raced units is a pedes­trian lane to the rear al­low­ing rear gar­den ac­cess so you don’t have to bring bins through the house on col­lec­tion day. All have large dou­ble-glazed win­dows by Mun­ster Join­ery, es­sen­tial to dial down noise from air­craft on flight paths to and from Dublin Air­port.

“Bright­ness, cir­cu­la­tion, space and stor­age is what buy­ers want,” says Re­gency di­rec­tor Pa­tri­cia Hince, so the firm opted for large for­mat win­dows and in­tro­duced more light to the kitchens via glazed side pan­els to the glass doors.

The kitchens fea­ture smart units by BeS­pace Kitchens and own­ers that sign con­tracts within 21 days get Neff and Zanussi ap­pli­ances in­cluded in their pack­age.

There are slid­ing doors with opaque glass pan­els be­tween the kitchen and the liv­ing room to al­low dis­crete liv­ing if pre­ferred. The box bay win­dow in the liv­ing room is big enough to fit a two-seat sofa and re­cessed spots over­head can act as an am­bi­ent light source. The ceil­ing heights through­out are 2.7m. A fea­ture of the three-beds is a lovely roomy land­ing area that mea­sures 15ft by 5ft. All the houses have heat re­cov­ery ven­ti­la­tion sys­tems.

The four-bed mid- and end of ter­race units mea­sure be­tween about 140sq m /1,507 sq ft and 149sq m/1,604sq ft with prices from ¤550,000. These have a spa­cious main bed­room on the sec­ond floor with a dormer win­dow big enough to take a desk or dress­ing ta­ble.

The four-bed end of ter­race and semi-de­tached prop­er­ties mea­sure about 151sq m/1,625 sq ft with prices from ¤585,000 through agents DNG.
