Dalkey, once a Viking settlement and Coliemore harbour Dublin’s main port, today attracts the well-heeled and visiting peregrine falcons to this lovely Co Dublin seaside suburb.

Berwick House is a development of six apartments on Coliemore Road, and number 5 on the top floor has come to the market with an asking price of €625,000 through Lisney.

The apartment is bright, thanks to a multitude of windows and patio doors. and has sweeping views from Baily lighthouse to Dalkey Island. Because of its location on the top floor the elevated views are majestic.

At 85sq m (925sq ft), the apartment consists of two bright bedrooms, both with sea views, and the master which is en suite has access to a southeast facing patio with views of Dalkey Island.

The kitchen with Iroko countertops and shaker painted units has a clever plantation shutter between it and the living room, so new owners can keep an eye on marine activity while preparing meals.


Full-length windows
A patio off the kitchen is perfect for sunset cocktails on balmy summer evenings and could easily accommodate a table for dining al fresco.

The apartment has a fine family bathroom and lots of cupboard storage in the front hall.

The bright living room in buttercup yellow has pale carpets, a gas fire and the eye is immediately drawn to the full-length windows with access to a flowerpot patio.

The views here of the rippling Irish Sea are really what will attract buyers. Number 5 Berwick House is in turnkey condition and would suit those downsizing or anyone longing for panoramic sea views.
