Farrankelly Green Light: 426 Homes Greystones

The scheme, known as ‘Farrankelly’ will consist of three, four and five-bed houses and one, two and three-bed apartments spanning over a 21 hectare site.

Cairn homes will also be constructing a two-storey creche and residential amenity building which will be used as a marketing suite for a minimum of three years.

The Greystones development will feature 4.5 hectares of open space including a playing pitch, all-weather pitch, tennis courts, children’s play area, trim trail and parking facilities. There will be a total of 762 car spaces available.

The scheme will feature approximately 4 hectares of pedestrian and cycle routes along with all ancillary landscape works including public lighting, planting and boundary treatments.

‘Farrankelly’ will be bounded by the Kilcoole Road (R761) to the east and Priory Road to the west, Eden Gate and Glenbrook Park to the south, within the townlands of Farrankelly and Killincarrig, Delgany, Greystones, Co. Wicklow.
