by D/RES

Altidore Gardens is a brand new residential neighbourhood which seamlessly connects with the vibrant village community of Newtownmountkennedy.

Our Story

Encircled by peaceful glens and native woodland, with the village bustle of Newtownmountkennedy just a stone’s throw away. Altidore Gardens perfectly mirrors its natural surrounds. A place designed for all seasons and senses – for all interests and individuals. The perfect balance between rustic country life and a refined urban experience. Whether you’re embracing your inner mountain-trekker, catching up with a new neighbour over coffee, keeping up your sea-swimming, or simply easing into a slower pace, Altidore Gardens welcomes you home.

Designed With Purpose

And with Altidore Gardens, those principles of sustainability, innovation and connectedness are to the fore in the 5 housing developments, featuring a thoughtfully landscaped and biodiverse linear park at its heart.

This welcoming parkland, while serving Altidore Gardens, will also be accessible to residents in the wider area of Newtownmountkennedy. As a purposefully-designed shared amenity, not only will the park’s walking trails, bespoke cycleways and outdoor exercise areas enhance the locale, but it will encourage community engagement and interconnectedness.

It’s the difference between house-building and placemaking. It’s what we do and we’re exceptionally good at it.

    Surrounded by the majestic Wicklow mountains and yet a short hop to the sweeping coastline, there’s every reason and opportunity to embrace the great outdoors.

    Altidore Gardens is also perfectly located to explore Wicklow’s countless beauty spots and attractions close by. Spectacular Glendalough is a short drive away, while neighbouring Druid’s Glen boasts a world renowned golf course and 5-star resort hotel. Whether staying indoors or heading out, there’s somewhere new to explore for every weekend of the year.

    And for the working week, Altidore Gardens offers convenient access to the M11, linking to the M50, along with being well served by public transport links.

    Or, if working from home, enjoy coffee breaks in one of the many cafés on your doorstep. Embracing the ideal work-life balance has never been easier.

    Your New Locals

    Your New Locals

    Altidore Gardens is generously served by an array of eateries, cosy cafés, traditional pubs, shopping and woodland, both in Newtownmountkennedy and just beyond. Staying local, the well-known Fishers is the place to meet for gourmet breakfasts and lunch, with some designer shopping when you’re done or a walk in Newtownmountkennedy Wood. Then maybe treat yourself to a well-crafted pint at The Wicklow Wolf Brewery and Taproom or an evening meal served at the Parkview Hotel.

    Just a five minute drive and you’re in the neighbouring village of Greystones, with its many cafes, boutiques and of course, The Happy Pear. Or head south to the busy harbour town of Wicklow, gateway to the spectacular golden sands and dunes of Brittas Bay. In the opposite direction, just up the road, there’s Avoca Handweavers for gourmet food and the best of Irish arts & crafts.

    The Linear Park

    The Linear Park

    At the heart of Altidore Gardens and connecting all the homes, is the imaginatively designed and thoughtfully landscaped linear park. Home to a diversity of native woodland and wildflower meadows, the parkland forms a green and spacious recreational area for residents and a biodiverse oasis for local wildlife.

    Together with cycle lanes that bring you right into the village, there’s winding pathways, running tracks and outdoor exercise facilities. In fact, all elements of this unique green space have been purposefully designed to pull you outdoors for a walk, a run, a meet-up, or just to breathe in and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature on your doorstep.
