t was back on the night of November 15th 2016 that Sillan Lodge on Church Lane mysteriously caught fire.
By January 2021, it had been levelled, the planning shenanigans already well underway…
With planning permission initially granted for three houses on the Church Lane site back before the property bubble burst, the asking price was €2m. In June 2019, that planning had jumped to nine houses, and now, three years later, they’re going to market.
And you may not be all that surprised to learn that they’re not exactly cheap, with prices starting at €995,000 and ending at €1.35m.
Being handled by Savills, the nine A-rated houses have been designed by PD Lane Architects, with, states developer Neil Durkan, ‘a tip of the cap’ to local homes built 100 years ago.
For those who care about the finer details, from the Knightsbridge Collection, the Noel Dempsey kitchens have hand-painted oak drawers, quartz splashbacks and AEG appliances with a Rangemaster 1000mm induction range. Also inside, there are two reception rooms alongside an open-plan kitchen/dining space at garden level, which have been designed by Elaine Jerrard of Elk House Interiors. Elk House also installed oak flooring throughout the ground floor, with Villeroy and Boch sanitary ware and Brian Frew bespoke vanity units and mirrors in the bathrooms.
The houses themselves have Carlson Scandinavian optiwood timber windows and patio screens with high-performance glazing and electrically operated roof lights in the kitchen extension and on the second floor. And for the eco-conscious, there’s the A2 Ber, the houses boasting ground floor underfloor heating and low-energy radiators with high energy efficient air-to-water heat pump central heating and multizone controls. All houses are fitted with a MVHR (mechanical ventilation heat recovery) unit, which helps maximise the efficiency of the heat pump by creating an ambient temperature and providing a fresh air supply.
Nice. The two semi-detached four-bedroom houses measure 160sq m (1,722sqft) are seeking €995,000, and at 205sq m (2,206sq ft), the detached four-bedroom homes are listed at €1.35 million. Grab one here.
