Cairn has today officially launched its first development at Parkside, Malahide Road, Dublin 13. The recently listed company is intent on setting a high standard and the opening phase of the North Dublin development has 25 stylish three and four bedroom family homes on offer, priced between €299,000 and €385,000.

Ranging in size from 110-150sq.m (1,189sq.ft-1,615sq.ft) in a number of high quality brick elevation styles, each house includes an impressive array of features as standard, a quality design and a high specification finish inside and out with landscape design by Dominick Murphy. All incorporate the latest construction technology to ensure an A3 BER rating and outstanding energy performance.

The well-located site also has excellent transport, leisure, retail and community amenities in place, with two new primary schools with capacity for 1,000 students planned to open in 2017 to replace temporary schools already on site.

Currently the group's largest development, the c. 50 acre Parkside site has zoning potential for a total of 433 homes and Cairn expects to complete the first 200 homes before the end of 2016. Dublin City Council requires a minimum of 13,751 new homes to meet demand - 38.8% of a total shortfall of 35,433 homes across the greater Dublin region, according to a 2014 Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland report.
