Double penthouse with stunning city views is twice as nice


Dublin 8: €3mWith significantly more living space than an average family home and a 360 degree view over Dublin city centre, this stylish penthouse in Dublin 8 is designed for living on a grand scale.

Apartments 104 and 105, Adelaide Square, two penthouses that are merged, offer style and space in a great city centre location.

The current owners bought the units off plans and got the developer, Sean Kelly, to remodel to their taste and needs.

The result is a swish city pad with grand proportions and an exceptional finish.

It's for sale by private treaty through Bergin Auctioneers and has a price tag of €3 million.

The penthouse has 204sq m (2,200sq ft) of living space and that's not counting the 93sq m (1,000sq ft) of terraces and private gardens.

Accommodation is arranged around an impressive entrance hall with walls in a striking cornflower blue artisan plaster.

The open-plan sitting/diningroom is knockout and designed with entertaining in mind.

Floor-to-ceiling windows take full advantage of the apartment's location.

The kitchen has all the snazzy gizmos expected of a chic city pad: black granite worktop, an integrated cappuccino maker, soft-close drawers and doors.

Customised storage units make the kitchen a clutter-free zone. Even the plug sockets are hidden away.

All three bedrooms have generous proportions and two are en suite.

The main bedroom, a study in black and soothing purple, has a walk-in wardrobe with built-in dressing table.

The pièce de resistance is the glazed study perched on top of the penthouse. Originally intended as a shared stairwell providing access to a roof garden, in the redesign it became a glazed hideaway giving great views over the city.

The standard of finish is second to none with all the whistles and bells: mood lighting, surround sound and internal music system, hidden flat screen TV, underfloor heating in bathrooms and solid oak doors and floors.

The yearly €7,000 maintenance fees are not cheap but they do cover the use of the basement gym and swimming pool in the well-cared for scheme.

Two parking spaces come with the penthouse.
