Lansdowne Place: spacious apartment living makes for ideal base in Dublin 4

No other residential development in Dublin comes close to the spacious, Manhattan-style standards of the apartments and penthouses at Lansdowne Place in Ballsbridge, Dublin 4


Lansdowne Place, an international standard of spacious, exquisitely-designed apartment living


They say that location is everything. But when that location comes with generous space, immaculate design and unrivalled serviced facilities it becomes more than everything. This all comes together from the moment you step into the marketing suite at Chartered Land’s Lansdowne Place, where every detail of these one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and penthouses has been carefully thought out.

Nowhere is this depth of thought and planning more manifest than in the Lansdowne Place approach to modern lifestyle-driven apartment and penthouse living, comparable only to the lifestyle standards of the very best Manhattan residences overlooking Central Park, New York. The development is already attracting attention and indeed securing purchasers looking for just those levels of bespoke service, sophistication and security when seeking a base in Ireland’s capital.

Positioned at the heart of Dublin 4, in the discreet tree-lined corner where Lansdowne Road meets Shelbourne Road, the development offers easy access to the capital’s transport, business and cultural hubs and busy, cosmopolitan Dublin City Centre is within walking distance. Lansdowne Place also has plenty to offer even closer to home as more and more retailers, businesses and leisure operators discover the benefits of a Ballsbridge location.

With the 3Arena, Bord Gais Energy Theatre, Aviva Stadium and Herbert Park all within easy reach, recreation and relaxation are equally well catered for here.

What’s more, Lansdowne Place is the signature development within Chartered Land’s vision for the wholesale transformation of an entire district within the Ballsbridge neighbourhood. In 2019 work will begin on redeveloping the neighbouring Ballsbridge Hotel into a residential-led, mixed use scheme to include a 210-bedroom luxury hotel scheme. This, together with the private, gated community of Lansdowne Place and the arrival of upmarket food, drink, retail and lifestyle operators gathered around a new open air public plaza, is fast making Ballsbridge arguably the capital’s most desirable and vibrant place to live, work and play.

Goddard Littlefair’s design flair is found in every detail

Designed by O’Mahony Pike Architects and with interior design by Goddard Littlefair (voted UK Interior Designer of the Year 2017), the outstanding quality of architecture, design, materials and workmanship is evident in every aspect of the Lansdowne Place apartments and penthouses, including the distinctive Residents’ Suite.

Arranged across two floors of the Templeton Building, the 6,500 sq ft Residents’ Suite provides a curated range of services and facilities which can be tailored to meet the hectic personal and professional needs and lifestyles of today’s busy urban professionals. A 24-hour concierge means that service and security is always on call to offer assistance and advice on anything from booking a car or spa treatment, to arranging laundry, collecting deliveries and recommending restaurants.

It almost goes without saying that the Residents’ Suite comes complete with a private fitness centre, treatment rooms, lounge/library, screening room and a dining/meeting suite which can cater for up to 50 guests. This last detail alone, combined with superfast broadband, makes Lansdowne Place the ideal option for business executives and entrepreneurial spirits with a need for out-of-office working and hosting space.

The architecture of each of the seven buildings on the site, which was once the home of the Trinity Botanical Gardens, delivers a perfect harmony between classical elegance and international contemporary refinement

Goddard Littlefair’s creative vision and depth of detail is to be found throughout the Residents’ Suite, from the entrance hall watched over by Peter McGuire’s striking glass panel sculpture to the carefully-chosen flooring, exquisite upholstery and numerous meticulously crafted expressions of colour, shape and texture.

The architecture of each of the seven buildings on the site, which was once the home of the Trinity Botanical Gardens, delivers a perfect harmony between classical elegance and international contemporary refinement. The immaculately landscaped site, designed by Bernard Seymour Landscape Architects, is filled with light and air, with abundant trees and creative planting schemes, an oasis of escape set amongst private courtyards.

Goddard Littlefair have also brought their signature touch to the kitchens, which have been hand-crafted in Ireland by O’Connors of Drumleck. Here, every working and decorative detail has been well-thought-out and crafted, offering purchasers a choice of light and dark palettes. These quality kitchens are complemented by a complete suite of the very latest Miele appliances.

Elsewhere their design flair is found in the beautifully appointed bathrooms, walk-in wardrobes, extra-tall doorways, floor-to-ceiling windows and raised, coffered ceilings that add to the feeling of lightness and spaciousness that runs throughout Lansdowne Place.

Given its peerless location, specification, design and craftsmanship it’s little wonder that the apartments and penthouses at Lansdowne Place have garnered so much attention from the Irish and international property industry as well as from purchasers. Already more than €100 million worth of residences have been sold off plan, including one of the signature penthouses at a price of €6.5 million. However, it is probably the range of 2-bedroom apartments from €900,000 - €1.6 million that hold the broadest appeal for the busy career professional seeking their ideal home from home in the capital city.

With the first residents due to take possession later this year, Lansdowne Place is very quickly fulfilling its promise of delivering to the heart of Dublin 4 an international standard of spacious, exquisitely-designed apartment living that is like nothing else our capital city has to offer.
