If you look at Glensavage’s design by de Blacam and Meagher Architects, it’s clear why the homes in the development are already selling out.
n one of Blackrock’s most prestigious streets, development nestles behind the large Victorian houses and smaller 1960’s detached houses of Avoca Road.
The Scandinavian style buildings are laid out around the irregularly shaped wooded lot. Builders Bartra responded well to the challenge with three single-storey entrance gate lodges that have an L-shaped layout and wrap around private courtyards and gardens.
In addition, there are five L-shaped single-family houses in the broader part of the property and two multi-family houses at the southern end of the development.
Each is three stories high and there are seven apartments in each block. It’s like a rise and fall as you go through the development, with different scales and house types, all set in the mature woods offering privacy to each house.
Five of these apartments are still on the market.
On the top floor there are two triple rooms with a floor area of 1,436 m² and a price of €975,000.
A 1,420 square meter triple room on the first floor is available for 950,000 euros. On the ground floor there is a twin room (1,205 m²) for €795,000 and a single room with 797 m² for €625,000.
The apartments will surely appeal to those looking for discount or “right size”.
You certainly don’t have a pokey feeling for them. Instead, you step straight into a wide hallway with open spaces, tall windows and 9-foot ceilings that give a real sense of space and light.
The finishes are high quality with ceramic tiles in the lobbies, parquet floors running from the hallways to the kitchen and living areas.
The kitchens have been individually designed and are equipped with electrical appliances from Siemens.
Each apartment has a balcony or terrace. The balconies have vertical wooden beams and stone paving.
The apartments in energy efficiency class A are heated by electric zone heating and have a ventilation system with air and heat recovery. The windows and balcony doors are double glazed and covered with aluminum.
The annual management fees are between €2,360 and €3,949, depending on the size of the apartment. There is a designated parking space for each unit and communal car charging facilities.
Outside, the existing mature trees were left in place and a private community garden was created for residents.
A viewing can be arranged through Colliers on (01) 6333700.
