Mooretown, Swords, Co. Dublin Asking Price: from €410,000 Broker: Sherry FitzGerald (01) 667 1888
annon Homes knows a thing or two about building in north county Dublin. Since the company was founded by Gerry Gannon in 1984, 12,000 homes have been built under the developer’s supervision. These include Miller’s Glen in Swords, Robswall and The Casino in Malahide and Belltree in Clongriffin.
The latest offering from the prolific builder is Mooretown in Swords. It will be built directly across from Miller’s Glen, where over 600 families have moved to the area since 2014. It’s clear how attractive the location is to young couples as there are two new schools on the doorstep – Swords Community College a secondary school and Broadmeadow Community School cater for the undergraduate level.
Mooretown is expected to attract interest from a similar demographic. For eligible first-time buyers, some of the homes qualify for the Help-To-Buy program, which has been extended through 2024 in this week’s budget.
In this first version there are 35 houses with three and four beds. They are currently under construction and the first residents are expected to receive their keys before Christmas.
The three-bed homes range in floor area from 1,130 square feet to 1,216 square feet and have a starting price of $410,000. They are either terraced, at the end of the terrace or semi-detached. Quadruple rooms are either semi-detached or end terraces and range in size from 1,313 to 1,421 square feet and prices start at €495,000.
The houses designed by CCK Architects are in the traditional style with red brick and plaster. Each has an A energy rating, thanks to the high level of insulation in the walls, floors and attics, as well as double-glazed windows by Grady Joinery and Longi solar panels.
The Irish design kitchens are supplied and installed by Kitchen World. For security reasons, a Smartzone hub with a touchscreen will also be installed in each property.
All back gardens will be seeded and provided with concrete posts and wooden fences. Driveways in front of the houses are made of cobblestones.
Upon completion, Mooretown will have approximately 500 homes in total. Swords has grown to accommodate new residents in recent years with the construction of the new schools mentioned above as well as the expansion of the Swords Express bus service, bringing commuters into town in less than 40 minutes. Viewings are by appointment.
