Dún Laoghaire has become a hotspot for those trading down and it’s not hard to see why. It is situated on the sea and offers bracing fresh air, fantastic connectivity and a thriving bar and restaurant scene.
One of the most popular developments is Harbour View, a large residential and commercial mixed-use scheme jointly built in 2007 by Earlsfort Developments and Bennett Construction, where Milano and the Gourmet Food Parlour are among the key commercial tenants.
It isn’t on the seafront but the views from number 62, a three-bed, three-bath penthouse frame this classic Dublin vista. From the open plan living-dining room of this property on the seventh floor, a terrace faces northwest and takes in Howth Head, the Poolbeg towers and the full arc of Dublin Bay.
The room has 3m-high ceilings and a wall of glass, so even if it’s blowing a gale you can still enjoy it. The terrace, which is more than 2.4m long, even has a sheltered area, and can also be accessed from the master bedroom. The lofty location feels utterly private but the property’s glazing is also dressed with venetian blinds and gauzy curtains to reduce any excessive glare.
The kitchen is small and off the main living space. The u-shaped design has polished granite countertops and a gas hob that cooks will enjoy.
Two of its three double bedrooms have en suites that include showers in their spa-style baths, large format mirroring and black granite worktops. The third double is currently being used as a study and there is access to a second balcony from both the bedrooms on this side of the property. Facing southeast it too has some sea views and takes in Wicklow’s Sugarloaf mountain.
Annual property management charges, which include an on-site caretaker, currently stand at €2,598. There is an underground car park with a bike shed, and storage units can be rented annually. Number 40, another three-bed penthouse, on the same floor, sold for €730,000 in August, according to the Property Price Register.
The B3-rated property, measuring 92sq m/990sq ft, is seeking €730,000 through agent DNG.
