Set within an award-winning landscape, the apartments feature floor-to-ceiling windows and top-of-the-range contemporary kitchens and bathrooms as standard. Last year, seven of the penthouse apartments were launched for sale. Carefully arranged in stepped blocks, these duplex penthouses benefit from terrific light and views.

In terms of location and quality features, this super-sized apartment - it has 257sqm of living space - is being touted as an alternative family home to a Victorian redbrick in Dublin 4 or 6. Certainly, teenagers and college-age offspring will relish the city centre location, and their parents may make substantial savings on taxi fares too.
