“Private secure development” = high management fees?

I drive by that estate from time to time - I always presumed these houses would be huge. Far away from most amenities but has an air or exclusivity. Did a Boyzone or a Westlife live there at some stage?

Bryan Mcfadden and Kerry used to be in there. it has a manned gate at the front so presumably the management fees are lofty.

Ah that was it. I knew there was some major celebrity glam attached to it…

Yes, the fees must be serious. I notice from the satellite that the first bunch of houses are fairly big gaffs on large plots but then it gets much tighter. The house for sale here is on a narrow road. No StreetView available but you can see from the picture that there’s a fairly big shadow on the front of the house from the one across the road.

As the crow flies it’s very close to the train station but you’d actually have to come out of the estate and walk around to Station Road. Still closer than most of Portmarnock though!
