Close to college at UCD

4 Greenfield Manor, Greenfield Park, Donnybrook, Dublin 4 €650,000

It will be a lucky fresher indeed whose parents stump up for this smart apartment just next door to UCD. Three double bedrooms mean that he or she could share with a couple of friends – and never have to worry about parking on campus, as everything is just a few minutes’ walk away.

Greenfield Park is a quiet cul de sac in leafy Donnybrook with direct pedestrian access into the grounds of UCD. The Greenfield Manor residential complex was built in the 1970s, and is a development of just 24 large apartments set in spacious landscaped grounds.

No 4 Greenfield Manor has been recently-renovated and is located on the elevated ground floor. The three-bedroom apartment has 102sqm of bright, well laid-out accommodation. The master bedroom is en-suite, while the other two doubles share a second bathroom. There’s a roomy entrance hall from which three steps lead down to an open-plan living room and kitchen/dining area. The apartment has gas-fired central heating and designated underground parking.

Donnybrook has good food shops and several bars and restaurants, including every student’s favourite, Eddie Rocket’s. Kiely’s and Arthur Mayes are two popular watering holes.

Greenfield Manor is close to the Montrose site for which Cairn Homes has just agreed to pay an eye-watering €107.5m for a 8.64 acre plot for residential development, which only goes to confirm the demand for property in the area. There is speculation that the entire Montrose site may be developed as rental units, and perhaps sold to one major investor.
