Penthouse with panoramic views for €1.1m
A four-bedroom apartment with six balconies, three parking spaces and spectacular views of Dublin’s landmarks
Situated on the site of the former convent at High Park and St Mary’s Asylum, Grace Park Manor is a mixed development of apartments, duplexes, townhouses and penthouses built by Cosgrave Brothers in 2002.
Number 420 is one of five penthouses in the manor. It commands a complete fifth floor and has its own private lift access from the car park. The property is divided into two distinct areas: living and sleeping quarters.
From each of its six balconies there are views of Dublin’s landmarks. From the two small south-facing balconies off the cherrywood kitchen and adjoining breakfast room you can see as far as the Sugar Loaf and the Dublin Mountains.
But while each of these outside spaces offers a different snapshot of Dublin, several are only big enough to accommodate a small dining set for two.
The sittingroom is huge, with windows on three sides. This area also has a home office and a utility room.
The four bedrooms are situated on the far side of the property. While enormous, the master bedroom is curiously configured. A door takes you through a walk-in wardrobe to the en suite bathroom.
The well-landscaped setting is minutes from Drumcondra village. Measuring 328sq m (3,350sq ft), the property is asking €1.1 million through agents Lisney.
