Hill view estate in Wicklow Town - should we buy beside it?

    Hi, I’m looking to possibly buy one of the new builds in Sessile Oaks in Wicklow which is beside Hillview Estate. I’ve been advised to not buy the house because of anti-social behaviour, fires, scramblers at all hours. Would anyone who has any experience around the area be able to confirm this? I don’t want to make the wrong move. Many thanks

    I know where you’re talking about but don’t really know anything about Hillview itself.

    Sessile Oaks has been discussed in other threads on here. I believe it was initially to consist of privately owned houses, was then to be social housing with deposits returned to prospective buyers & is now once again on the market to private buyers. I’d say the build started maybe four or five years ago & seems to be ongoing but no one has lived there to date as far as I know.

    Both estates are a good walk from the town centre, schools etc & it’s all uphill. Views over the bay should be pretty good though!

    Dont is all I can say to you.

    Take a walk up there some nice evening and walk around for an hour or two and see how you feel.

    But I think you know deep down how you feel.
