The development comprises of an apartment building containing 1 and 2 bedroom apartments, self contained duplex units and large penthouse apartments. All of the units are accessed from the glazed atrium entrance hall which unites the two blocks. The block to the north commands unrestricted views over the adjoining golf course while the units to the front overlook the landscaped communal gardens which act to separate the higher and lower density elements of the scheme. There are 16 individual houses comprisingNo. distinct house types

Forming the public face of the development to Howth Road are large storey town houses, behind which are smaller courtyard houses with roof terraces which share a ‘mews lane’ with 6 No. two storey terrace houses. Facing the apartment building are substantial detached houses, each planned around and integral patio which forms an external room to each house. The mature trees bordering the site and framing the entrance drive into the development have been carefully maintained and form the nucleus of the extensive landscaping undertaken when construction was completed.
