This stunning Rathmines development mixes traditional with contemporary
Because sometimes it’s hard to choose.

CONTEMPORARY DEVELOPMENTS ARE often an interesting mix of modern living needs and innovative design and  materials.

And then there’s the elegance of traditional design – particularly in Rathmines, with its classic red-brick fronted houses.

How can you choose?

Now there’s a new development in Rathmines that can help you with that choice between the two aesthetics.

Maxwell Square is a new development designed by award-winning architects Extend and the final two houses in the scheme are available through DNG via from €560,000.

Situated in Rathmines, and close to Ranelagh and Rathgar with their wealth of restaurants, cafes, shops and other amenities such as tennis clubs and the Dodder river, Maxwell Square is in a prime location.

There are two different styles of house available – contemporary and traditional, and there’s one of each available. The traditional house is a four-bedroom mid-terrace, and the contemporary is a three-bedroom mid-terrace.

All the houses have been designed to have excellent energy efficiency with a high level of wall, floor and attic insulation and the houses have a heat recovery ventilation system. All the toilets have a dual flush which helps with water conservation (and the Irish Water bill).

The interiors of both styles have been fitted to a very high specification. The kitchens are in line with the style of the house, so the traditional house has traditional mouldings and a solid quartz worktop with a classic colour scheme and traditional cabinetry elements.

The contemporary house has sleek modern cabinets and designer layouts as well as a solid quartz worktop.

Both kitchens come with a fridge-freezer, dishwasher and a Neff induction hobb and oven.

There is underfloor heating on the ground floor of both houses.

The windows throughout are double-glazed solid Scandinavian timber with aluminium cladding to the exterior – which minimises maintenance.

The contemporary house comes with a garage and the traditional house has a driveway and ample off-street parking.

Gardens were designed to be an ‘external room’ and will have attractive furniture and clever garden storage options.
