Three dream houses to buy in Castleknock right now

We’ll hold our hands up from the get-go; we couldn’t afford any of these houses even with a lottery win. Still, there’s no harm in window shopping. The houses below are situated in Castleknock; with the Phoenix Park to one side, the M50 to another, and Blanchardstown Shopping Centre just a short drive away. Already home to the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, social media star Doireann Garrihy and actor Colin Farrell; this pricey part of the capital could be home to you too.

15 Homeleigh, Porterstown, Castleknock, Dublin 15 – €2,250,000

This five-bedroom house at 15 Homeleigh can be easily labelled the most luxurious residential property in Dublin 15. Some notable features include a private indoor swimming pool, an all-weather tennis court, a private bar and games room, a five-seater hot tub, and a four-seater sauna. The entrance hallway includes marble flooring, while a sweeping marble staircase leads to the gallery landing. The large kitchen overlooks the rear garden and comes with all mod-cons; including a Neff American fridge-freezer and a matching integrated dishwasher. The house is fitted with CCTV, electric security gates, and includes a detached double garage.

6 Homeleigh, Porterstown, Castleknock, Dublin 15 – €2,495,000

Just a stone’s throw from the first property, this five-bedroom house at 6 Homeleigh is not to be overlooked. Positioned at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, the high-ceilinged home oozes grandeur from every room. Take the elevator or floating staircase up to the bedrooms; all of which include an ensuite and access to a private balcony. There is also an entertainment room, fitted with speakers and recessed lighting; as well as a private bar and home gym. The attic is so spacious it has been divided into two rooms; one can be used for storage and the other is currently being used as a home cinema. What’s more, the house sits an approximately an acre of land and has an excellent B2 BER rating.

43 Deerpark Road, Castleknock, Dublin 15 – €1,650,000

Arguably the cosiest of our three dreamy Castleknock properties, this four-bedroom house at 43 Deerpark Road would make a lovely family home. With four reception rooms and an inviting kitchen-cum-breakfast room, there is plenty of space for children, teenagers and guests. This kitchen is the heart of this home, with glass doors opening to the sunny rear garden and three reception rooms. It comes with a freestanding Cannon range-style cooker; with dual electric ovens, a grill and a six-ring gas hob. There is an integrated fridge-freezer and dishwasher, as well as access to the ‘Boot Room’ and utility room. Off-street parking is available for up to six cars, and a mature south-facing garden is located to the rear.
