Development - A hidden development in Blackrock, Co. Dublin
Glensavage is a beautiful hidden site of 2.49 acres (0.94 hectare) off Avoca Road in Blackrock. The site is characterised by its irregular shape and woodland appearance. The layout of the development of 22 units only, was designed in response to this with an arrangement of buildings of various scales and unit types stepping back and forward in plan throughout the site.
The impressive selection of 8 contemporary A-rated homes and 14 apartments, is set in a beautifully landscaped woodland setting. The unique, tranquil setting offered by the site is unrivalled in the new homes market and offers the quintessential Blackrock environment with a modern edge for families, executives and those looking to downsize. Located on Avoca Road in Blackrock, Co. Dublin, this is a new high-quality development of 5 Detached Houses, 3 Detached Gate Lodges and 14 Apartments.
The signature architectural elements that define Nordic style are present in the design of Glensavage. A refined palette of materials has been used including bright oak flooring, 2.7m high doors and natural marble tiling that contribute to a sense of space and light. This simplicity, function, and connection to the natural world offers understated elegance to each home.
The scheme has been designed by Award winning de Blacam and Meagher Architects and influenced by a Scandinavian concept. To the northern end of the site, at the entrance from Avoca Road, there are three single-storey one bed plus study gate lodges. They are ‘L’ shaped in plan, focusing on private courtyards and gardens facing south west. Beyond this, the site widens out to five large 5-bedroom family homes, set within an open landscape. Again, these have an ‘L’ shaped plan, with all the principal rooms facing south west into very large private courtyards and gardens.
To the southern end of the site are two apartment buildings, each three storeys and accommodating a mix of fourteen 1 bed, 1 bed plus study and 2 bed plus study apartments, in total, seven apartments in each block with private terraces and balconies.
Glensavage is set within a well-known long-established residential area in Blackrock surrounded by mature trees, parks and well-known schools. The development is located on Avoca Road which runs from Avoca Avenue to Grove Avenue in Blackrock. There are excellent public transport facilities close to Glensavage including the DART at Blackrock is a mere 17-minute walk away, and the Stillorgan Quality Bus Corridor along the N11 making for a quick and comfortable commute to the Dublin’s city centre.
There are an abundance of excellent primary and secondary schools close by to include Sion Hill, Blackrock College, St Andrew’s College, Booterstown National School, Carysfort National School, Nord Anglia International School Dublin, and Colaiste Eoin and Colaiste Iosagain to name a few. UCD Business School, Michael Smurfit’s UCD Graduate Business College and University College Dublin, Belfield are also close to hand.
