Completion : 2006
Detail : Private Housing
This development is a housing project containing 535 dwellings consisting of a mix of detached housing, terraced housing and gateway apartment buildings ranging in heights of two, three and four storey buildings. The scheme forms part of the overall Stepaside Area Action Plan which also includes the Park View, Littlewood and Aitkens Village developments.
The Site is a steeply sloping site and the layout takes advantage of the slope by using stepped terraces and individual housing courtyards.
The overall development has been highly commended by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council for the successful integration of both private and social and affordable housing in a comprehensive master plan layout which also made allowances for school, playing pitches and extensive open space provision.
The scheme is divided 4 district housing areas each with their own identity in terms of brick colour and each individually entered from the main spine road through the development.
