'Location, location, location," goes the mantra. Add the triple whammy of superb design, materials and extras-as-standard and you get Swan Lake in D8, surely among the most stunning riverside homes ever to hit the Dublin market.
Both properties boast bespoke features such as a rotating car turntable for ease of parking, a state-of-the-art cinema room, underfloor heating, Smarthomes technology, fully equipped designer kitchens, luxury bathrooms and remote controlled teak gates.
Designed by Grafton Architects, the chic, contemporary exteriors are mirrored by equally dramatic interiors laid out over three levels, with superb Liffey views.
Accommodation comprises a spacious hall with guest bathroom; kitchen/dining room; utility room, cinema room; living room with spacious terraces and access to rear garden; atrium with glazed bridges, three bedrooms (the master is en suite) and bathroom. Outside, the turntable parking bay lies behind motorised gates, while the south-facing, timber-decked lawns front onto the river and granite steps lead down to floating pontoons. Other features include an outdoor speaker system and showers.
The city centre is just minutes away by car (or, indeed, boat), as is the Luas and Heuston Station. House one extends to approximately 180sqm and house two to approximately 160sqm. And believe me, they won't be around for long.
Viewing today, 3-5pm and Saturday, 11am-1pm, or by appointment. Further information from Owen Reilly New Homes on 01 677 7100 or visit www.owenreilly.ie
