Knockrabo - An Unparalleled Lifestyle
Knockrabo is an impressive new development positioned on a stunning elevated site with views of the sea & the city in this enviable location. The elegant 3, 4 & 5 bedroom houses, apartments and penthouses will be set amidst c.20 acres of exquisite parkland and will have exceptional finishes which have been carefully selected in conjunction with the distinguished interior designer Helen Turkington.
Designed by award winning architects by O'Mahony Pike the overall vision for Knockrabo is to create a unique community within its fabulous open green spaces with stunning mature trees while sympathetic to the presence of the protected Cedarmount House, The Gate Lodge and also protecting the abundance of mature trees on this prime South Dublin site.
Knockrabo will also incorporate community facilities including a gym, crèche, park, trails and a library
lounge where residents can relax & meet with neighbours (Subject to planning permission).
Knockrabo has always been about more than just a development of beautiful homes in a charming setting.
It’s about community. About lifestyle. This is a place for people to relax, exercise and enjoy the Knockrabo
way of life.
The grounds of Knockrabo are very special, and feature numerous exquisite trees (some of which are over 200
years old). Children have climbed and played among these trees for many generations - as will many generations of Knockrabo residents to come. With the hectic bustle of everyday life, time is always at a premium. When it comes to crèche and gym facilities, Knockrabo will save residents time by offering these facilities on their doorstep.
Knockrabo is built on the site of Mountanville House, a demesne that was the home of Henry Roe who is famous for having paid for the restoration of Christchurch Cathedral.The name Mountanville House was later changed to Knockrabo.
The attractive house of Knockrabo, which stood opposite Mount Anville Convent, was a Victorian house of exceptional quality being located on high ground overlooking much of South County Dublin and a rooftop belvedere was added in the 19th Century to take advantage of these views. The house became the home of Chief Baron Christopher Palles in 1885 until his death in 1920. Later it became a boarding school for girls that practiced the progressive methods of English educator, Charlotte Mason (1842-1923). The school closed in 1960 and the Ski Club of Ireland built their first ski slope there c.1966 until the mid ‘70’s when it moved to Kilternan. In the early 80’s Knockrabo was owned by Dublin Gas employees, it was subsequently sold to Bank of Ireland who used it as their sports club. The BOI sports club included a bowling lawn, grass tennis courts and Knockrabo itself was demolished in 1984 to make way for a new sports facility.
There are so many excellent schools to choose from nearby; in fact there are 13 schools within a 3 mile radius of
Knockrabo and Belfield is a quick cycle away for students who might wish to attend UCD.
There is no shortage of entertainment in the immediate area either. Trips to Airfield Estate; shopping in Mount
Merrion Village, Dundrum and Stillorgan with cinemas and libraries in both Dundrum and Stillorgan.
And, of course, Deer Park, with its rustic tree lined walks, playground and tennis club, is located just 150m from
the gates of Knockrabo. This public park is a fantastic resource for all local residents and offers a range of excellent sporting facilities including soccer and Gaelic pitches. For those seeking tranquillity, there’s ample parkland for strolling, running or just admiring the stunning vistas of Dublin Bay and the city stretching into the distance.
