The Irish Times - Thursday - Property - - Property The Market - ALANNA GAL­LAGHER

De­scrip­tion: One and two-bed apart­ments, three-bed­room du­plexes and four-bed­room houses in a small es­tate built by Raven­shall De­vel­op­ments at the Bal­lyo­gan end of Gle­na­muck Road in Car­rick­mines. Agent: Sav­ills A small but very smart de­vel­op­ment called Wil­low Glen in south Dublin fea­tures four-bed houses, mid-, end-of-ter­race and semi-de­tached in style, as well as a small block of one- and two-bed apart­ments with three-bed du­plexes above.

These have been built to a con­tem­po­rary de­sign by Pierce & As­so­ci­ates com­pris­ing red­brick and stone-clad fronts with zinc canopies over large for­mat alu-clad win­dows by Mun­ster Join­ery and re­con­sti­tuted gran­ite sills.

There are just 28 units in to­tal in Wil­low Glen, com­pris­ing 14 houses and 14 mainly own-door apart­ments.

Lo­cated at the lower end of Gle­na­muck Road, Dublin 18 this sec­tion of the through­way will be bi­sected by a dis­trib­u­tor road that should re­move much of the cur­rent heavy traf­fic flow.

The in­te­rior is crisp and fresh with 2.7m ceil­ing heights through­out. The show house is by Elk House In­te­ri­ors and fea­tures a swish kitchen with a small is­land by Sharp Kitchen and soft white units with Vic­to­rian style brass cup­board knobs. AEG ap­pli­ances in­clude a dou­ble oven, gas hob, mi­crowave and full fridge with a sep­a­rate un­der-counter freezer in the util­ity of the four-bed houses.

The A-rated homes come with a Dim­plex elec­tric heater in the bright liv­ing room.

There is fresh de­tail­ing in the bath­rooms too with ver­ti­cal colour­block tiling used around the sink wi t h a wall-hung toi­let and con­cealed cis­tern in one while the fam­ily bath­room is a rest­ful dark an­thracite grey and fea­tures tex­tured tiles and a large sink by Ital­ian san­i­tary-ware firm Sot­tini.

In the four-bed show­house there are three bed­rooms on the first floor, two dou­bles, one of which has a shower en suite bath­room, and a sin­gle large enough to house a dou­ble bed.

The main bed­room is a fine space with a ter­race and a walk-in wardrobe sep­a­rated from the ac­com­mo­da­tion area by a door. The shower en suite is roomy. Clad in mar­ble-ef­fect tiles it is lit from above by a roof light and may be big enough to also house a bath, sub­ject to a plumb­ing cri­te­ria, which is some­thing to clar­ify with the builders.
