Buyers will find the grass is greener at Carmen Lawn

WHEREVER the name came from, Carmen Lawn is sure to be a success. Located in Upper Rochestown, the big detached houses are part of a 55-house scheme within a few minutes drive to the link road.

Carmen Lawn is the follow-up scheme by the builder of Jamesmount, James Butler, who has again employed architect Richard Rainey to design this mixed residential development.

It comprise 45 units divided up into five detached houses, 22 townhouses, eight three-bed semis and 10 four-bed semis.

Terence O’Leary of Property Partners O’Mahony Walsh is selling the townhouses and four of the detached houses in this phase giving a guide price of €860,000 for these 2,000 sq ft units.

Rooms are arranged around a curved central hallway and the front of the house has two formal rooms on either side of the main door, with living space at the back.

This includes an open-plan kitchen/dining/sunroom with a separate study/playroom.

The guest WC is tucked between front and back, with a central staircase. The utility off the kitchen comes with side door access and direct access to the back is via the sunroom. Overhead are four rooms ranged around the landing with two en suite bedrooms and a main bathroom.

The townhouses meanwhile, offer less than half the space and come in at over half the price. For the three-bedroom units, prices are set at €440,000 for the mid-terrace types and €450,000 for end terrace.

They come with good back gardens and designated parking to the front.

The layout offers a generous living room to the front and an open-plan kitchen/diner to the rear with sliding doors to the garden. Overhead are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one is en suite.
