1 Cluain Aedin, Carrickbrack Road, Sutton, Dublin 13
They are fitted out by top interior designers, installing high-end furniture and the best of bathroom fittings, kitchens and soft furnishings.
Its design is by well-known architect Orla FitzGerald, previously a founding member of O’Mahony Pike and since, long in charge of her own practice. But she made the Cluain Aedin sketches almost a decade earlier.
The other houses went on the market in November 2017 and No1, the show house at the scheme came on the following year. Furnished from top to toe by Ventura it was put up for sale with all furniture, soft fittings and lighting included.
There’s lots to look at outside too given that No1 has elevated sea views across the bay from Killiney in the south over to Bull Island. A big plus is the A2 BER achieved using Passive house standards, Alu Clad doors and windows, super-high insulation levels and a heat recovery ventilation system which uses the outgoing hot air to heat that coming in.
Off this is the utility room and a control room for the home’s comms and electronic systems. There’s a big airy lounge and there are two bedrooms on this floor. The master chamber comes with a contemporary ensuite as well as its own dressing room.
Bedroom two has an ensuite. On the next floor are two more bedrooms, both of which are ensuite, and a giant-sized fifth bedroom (which could also double as another reception) as well as a family bathroom.
