21 New Homes for Older Persons in Ballinteer

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council (dlr) is pleased to announce the delivery of 21 new homes at Broadford Court, Ballinteer, Dublin 16. The development, which is arranged around an enclosed landscaped courtyard, also has a community room, and underground parking.

The scheme has been designed to provide suitable accommodation for older persons and is well served by public transport with a bus stop nearby and local shops only a few minutes-walk away. Each of the dwellings have own door access, four are accessed off Broadford Rise and the remainder off the internal courtyard which has step, ramp or lift access. The dwellings wrap around the quiet private internal courtyard and the shared community room is placed in an elevated sunny corner of the site, with views out to the public road and all its activity. The individual dwellings range in size from 46 sq. m to 59.5 sq. m.

The scheme achieves a high density of 87.5 dwellings per hectare while respecting the existing built form, scale, and character of the residential amenity of the area. It has a warm brick finish with high-quality stone boundary walls.

An Cathaoirleach, Cllr Lettie McCarthy, said, “I’m delighted to be officially opening Broadford Court, this new development of 21 energy efficient, level access, own door dwellings has provided much needed homes for older persons on our Housing list. I hope that the residents will be very happy in their new homes and enjoy joining this wonderful community.”

Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage, Darragh O’Brien, was also in attendance at the opening of the new homes in Ballinteer. Dlr wishes to acknowledge the co-operation of local residents and stakeholder and would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their patience whilst this project was being constructed.
