White Pines Rathfarnham

Hello, I've been looking for more information online about this development as it looks to be in a good area. Does anyone have any idea on pricing? I've contacted Sherry Fitz and waiting to hear back, would love if anyone had any information on pricing or the development in general. Thanks!

Good to know, thanks! I'm really hoping they're less than 400,000 for the three beds, other new developments in the area are expensive!

Abbot's Grove, at the other end of Stocking Avenue would be a good guide. I'd expect that they will be looking for an increase on the prices achieved there.

If it is the site I am thinking of beside the halting site, they have started building and have some foundations etc in at the moment.

Yeah I think this is where it is, it's the very top end of Stocking Avenue, on the roundabout that joins to Stocking Lane. Not a great location given the estate will be sharing a boundary wall with the halting site. Or at least it looks like it will when I was driving by the other day.

if you used the recent development in Ballycullen Green, where a 3 bed was €400k, you can expect these to be in the region of €420k. However I find the use of the address 'Rathfarnham' a bit of a stretch. Tallaght is closer! So don't be fooled by the address!

Nah, it's Rathfarnham alright. Rathfarnham as an area is huge.

But yes, don't be fooled by the name Rathfarnham. It's not close to Rathfarnham village, it's outside the M50 and has poor transport links.

The halting site which is located beside it is notorious for criminal activity, dumping, roaming dogs, etc.
Some examples of the choice individuals in residence there:

I ended up buying in Scholarstown Wood. It's very close to this site, but they also called it Rathfarnham, again, its closer to Tallaght, but more Knocklyon than Tallaght I reckon. I'm moved in about 3 months now, Its a grand area, nice and quiet. Absolutely no issues from the nearby halting site. I didn't even know it was there until last week, until one of my neighbors mentioned it me. My only real gripe with the area is the lack of amenities. Nothing withing walking distance, and the traffic in the morning can be pretty bad, but you could say that about almost any part of Dublin these days.

I get the 15b. it stops right outside it and is frequent enough. As said in my last post, Its a very quiet area. I didn't even notice the nearby halting site until recently.

I travel towards Newcastle each morning, and go down stocking lane and haven't noticed any dumping on the road, but I've only been here about 3 months.

Not to mention on top of the m50 too so probably quite noisy. Speaking of m50 there is 2 options(via Stocking Lane or Ballycullen Road) to get to it from there and both are notoriously bad especially in the mornings during school term. Between this estate, Abbots Grove, Ballycullen Green and the unfinished Scholarstown Wood things are going to get REALLY bad up around there in the next couple of years. Local residents have been hounding local councillors and TDs but they don't want to know

Scholarstown Wood is different to be fair. It's inside the M50 and has more route options for driving or walking or cycling. The halting site wouldn't affect you because there's a big motorway and a few estates in the way

White Pines will be right beside the halting site.

The original planning applications for building around there included shops, cafe, creche etc as a condition. But that was 15 years ago. One can only hope that the developers will be forced to build those amenities. If they do, then you're laughing. If they don't, then White Pines will be a long way from anything.
