Given these are directly across from a Luas stop and a shopping centre along with a primary school a few mins walk away I'd say they will go for a lot more than Bishops gate.

One bed apartments in another park development across the road are 230 so under 4 for a house is very optimistic.

Yes but it's also on the Ballyogan road which lets face it is quite the turn off!

The 44 bus is a quite regular service running into town via Dundrum and Ranelagh from Stepaside. It might be more convenient than to get the Luas as that can be like the Tokyo express in the mornings.

thank you for suggesting this, the thing is I work in Sandyford and it appears car would be the best option here, as all these estates are separated by walls and fences and there is no easy way of navigating on foot(bike) and no shortcuts

I presume Clay Farm will open onto Ballyogan road. Also:

Quote:
Located in Stepaside in close proximity to the Luas, the delivery of the Clay Farm Loop Distributor Road located off Ballyogan rd, Stepaside will support further residential development in the area. The route of the loop distributor road will run through the Clay Farm Lands from Ballyogan Road, southward, via a proposed new link bridge which will cross the existing valley to the adjoining undeveloped lands and link back to Ballyogan Road through the Elmfield and Castle Court residential estate to the west where part of the
road has been constructed, including the bridge over Ballyogan Stream.

The location is very convenient for people who use the LUAS, but there is an ESB substation right next to it ! That would be my main concern about that location. Does anyone know if that substation is still in use or if there is any plan to move it?

All site is like 400m wide so you can look for a house on the other side if you mind ESB stuff.

Does anyone know if the 20 percent social housing would apply to Clay Farm?
Looks pretty good but I have heard some stories about social housing in these new estates.

Thanks

The buildings at the front of the development look fairly high density....

Yes, 10% is social housing and the development received funding from the government. Think the prices are revolting given that the developers have received government funding for the development as part of the Rebuilding Ireland yet cannot deliver affordable houses. I don't mean to tar all welfare receipients with one brush here but you can bet that some people will on the social housing list will get a lovely new home in this development, having never worked a day in their lives. Meanwhile, a middle income family working their butts off and leaving their kids in creche can't even afford a decent home. It does my head in how bloody backwards this country is.

I got an email recently from them with the initial phase pricing as follows: "We will have a variety of both 3 & 4 bedroom houses in the initial phase ranging in size from 1,175 Sqft (109 Sqm) – 1,735 Sqft (161 Sqm). Prices will be starting at €470,000 for the 3 bedroom houses and €560,000 for the four beds."
