This development is a model for contemporary living. It occupies a pivotal position, linking the historic village of Blackrock and the city. The design approach sought to enhance the existing character of the site and to exploit the setting to establish a real ‘sense of place' around a series of well-crafted landscaped courtyards, formal garden and mature landscape including many trees. The careful design of the homes reflects modern living trends, optimising comfort and quality through modern design and aims to set the standard for urban living in Cork.
