Suburban infill developments offer buyers the best of two worlds: contemporary living and good access to amenities within established neighbourhoods. Turkington Rock has taken this formula and is currently replicating it in a number of locations around south Co Dublin.
Formed two years ago, Turkington Rock is a design-led partnership between Keith Craddock, onetime asset manager at Green Reit and founder of Redrock Developments, and doyenne of classic contemporary interiors Helen Turkington. The idea of a design-led company is fairly typical in London, Craddock says, citing companies such as Finch Hatton and Northacre as examples.
It’s a good fit. Turkington already had more than a decade under her belt of designing for high-end residential projects before preparing her own former home in Rathgar for sale in 2016. Following an investment of €150,000, it went on the market in September seeking €2.2 million and by Christmas sold for €2.35 million. Craddock already knew Turkington through her husband, Garvan Walsh of Kelly Walsh Property Advisors.
