A new development at Árd na Glaise in Stillorgan by developer Homeland will be released to the market this weekend by DNG, with both three-bedroom houses and apartments offered for sale.

Homeland, who purchased the site from Cairn Homes in 2018, had originally sought to construct 67 homes on the lands, which are bounded by the Orpen and Coppinger housing estates, conveniently located just a short distance from the N11 dual carriageway and within walking distance to the villages of Blackrock and Stillorgan.

There will be a total of 59 units in Homeland’s second-largest project in the area, including 14 three-bedroom terraced houses and 45 apartments in a mix of studios, one-, two- and three-bedroom units.

The launch this weekend will offer six three-bed houses, measuring between 117sq m and 127sq m, priced from €860,000 on the site of an old mansion at Stillorgan Park Road. Also launched will be 17 apartments of various sizes: two 37sq m studios from €360,000; seven one-bedroom units (46sq m to 54sq m) from €420,000; and eight two-bedroom apartments (76sq m to 84sq m) from €595,000.


Designed by O’Mahony Pike Architects – the team which was awarded two Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland awards this year for its ESB Project Fitzwilliam (in collaboration with Grafton Architects) and Printing House Square, Trinity (in collaboration with McCullough Mulvin Architects) – the development consists of two apartment blocks, called Carysfort and Maretimo, along with terraced houses on the two-acre site.

All homes are A2 rated with low-energy-consumption design, thanks to high standards of wall, roof and floor insulation along with high-performance double-glazed Munster Joinery windows. All houses have underfloor heating at ground level, while first floors and apartments have radiators. Low-maintenance redbrick exterior finishes marry well with high-standard interiors by Avenue Interior Design, who have created lovely neutral palettes with natural materials, such as linen and rattan, in the two show units.

In terms of location, both Dart and Luas stops are within walking distance, while the area is also well served by the quality bus corridor, which is a five-minute walk away. For commuters, the Aircoach to Dublin Airport passes nearby and driving to the city centre takes about 25 minutes, depending on traffic. Amenities include four yacht clubs, in addition to a host of other sporting and recreational facilities, such as GAA, golf and lots of gyms and fitness clubs. An excellent selection of schools, both primary and secondary, are nearby, while University College Dublin (UCD) and UCD Smurfit Business School are also in proximity to the development.

When complete, the development, which has designated parking for houses and the two- and three- bedroom apartments, will be extensively landscaped with mature trees and shrubs on the two-acre site.
